So far, so good... :)

Ok, well, mostly good on my 1 hour of cardio.

Let's rewind, shall we?

Monday: Ran 30 minutes (2 miles) in the morning. Completely meant to get my other 30 minutes in after work. Instead, I fell asleep on the couch at 8:30 -- in the middle of the Twins season opener! Oh my! I have no idea what is wrong with me! I did get in the 30 minutes of weight lifting that I meant to do. I'm up to 3 sets of 10 reps at 15 lbs for my biceps. I'm going to have nice arms come August, damnit. Just wait until you see my tricep definition!

Tuesday: Was up at 4 to do regular workout of 2 miles. I woke up feeling exhausted. My eyes were puffy in a way that the good Lord never intended. I finally forced myself onto the treadmill, got .5 miles into my run and almost collapsed (ok, so I exaggerate a little). Needless to say, I decided to give up for the morning. I sat on the couch and went to watch some TV. I almost fell asleep! I was inexplicably exhausted. I just don't get it! I called into work to tell them I wasn't coming. Then, like a really good mom, took the kids to daycare and proceeded to sleep until after 11! That is SO not like me! :) I have a hunch that my poor body is fighting something, but I'm not sure what it might be. I did get in my hour of cardio though - from 4 - 5 right before I had to get the kids. I think I did a total of just over 4 miles (it would have been more if I'd actually run the whole time.)

Today: Plan is to get my hour in today at the gym. I think I'll mix it up with some eliptical (is that how you spell it?).

To win the final weigh-in over my co-worker (who has lost 50 lbs since January 1!), I'd have to lose at LEAST 25 lbs this month. Did I mention that he couldn't lose another lb for me to win? ;). Even to win the last weekly weigh-in, I'd have to lose 4 lbs by Monday. That's most likely not going to happen since there's ham involved this weekend.

Meanwhile, Ms. Bride-to-Be, any idea what size ended up getting ordered for me for the maid-o-honor dress? I'd love to hear you say that if you take me down a size that I'm a 12. ;) I'm still aiming to be a size 8, but ya know... we'll see.

And lastly, have we mentioned that I'm planning on doing a 5K in May?

Havent sent them your sizes. I was hoping to get Jenny's and yours together and send them all at once. I'll be sure to talk to her about bumping you down a size.

Lv ya.
