The post with no title!

I guess its pretty safe to say that I suck at blogging! I really don't know why I haven't blogged anything-maybe because we have a a really low key boring summer. And that has been ok with me. It has been so hot this summer, almost to hot to do anything.  I think that the most exciting thing that we did all summer was VBS at church.

I have a ton of stuff to catch up on, especially picture wise, but the usb cord to our camera seems to not won't to work. As soon as we fix it or buy another one I will have a ton of pictures to upload.

The great weight loss project of 2012 is going great. I am down 54 pounds so far and I could not be happier. Some of the pants that I had that I could not even dream about getting into are getting to BIG!!!! That is AWESOME! I still a long way to go but slow and steady will be just fine with me. We were able to get an exercise bike from a guy that I work with for a really good price so it has been really great to be able to keep up with exercising while it has been so hot. I love walking and I miss it but it has just been to hot. Rae and I have been a couple of times this summer after it has cooled down some and last night was one of those nights. We actually got a nice rain yesterday afternoon so it cooled things down quite a bit. She and I have started jogging some. I am trying to do a modified version of C25K. We walked for 22 mins and jogged for 3 last night. We were only short jogging by 3 mins so I am proud of us.  But I am sore today. I've got to get some new tennis shoes that will be good for jogging. Mine are about 4 years old and are just about wore out. I have this crazy goal of being able to run/jog the GumTree 10K next May. I have no problem walking 1.5 miles in 20-25 minutes but that is gonna have to change a whole bunch for me to be able to do the GumTree. 6 miles is a long way when you are on your feet the entire time. But I know that if I keep up the work, keep doing what I am doing and pray about it that God will help me do this. I just can't wrap my head around the fact that if I keep up the pace that I have been on since starting this in Jan that by GumTree time I could be down another 80 lbs by then.  I know that at some point my body is gonna refuse to work with me but I am going to try my best to not let that stop me. I have always thought about doing the GumTree but I've never been this close to actually doing it. We'll see. May is still a long way off!



Karen! I am so happy for you and your weight loss. That is fabulous. I know you must be feeling great. And also, your exercising---walking, biking, jogging--that's great too. Of course you will be ready for the GumTree 10K in May. That is a fantastic goal. Just take baby steps.
