Award Time

Thanks to Amanda for this award....Here we go...

The rules are as follows:

1. Answer the question: If you had one chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?

I was just commenting on someone's blog that I had finally come to grips with my regrets in life. I have moved past them, realizing that every choice I've made and every road I've taken has led me to where my life is today...which really isn't in such a bad place. However, I suppose there are a few things that I would change because I think I would still be where I am... the first is finishing up my degree when I had the chance. I should've just buckled down when I was younger and gotten it done. The second is I would've waited a year or two to have kids. I miss having my hubby all to myself.

2. Pick 6 people and give them this award. You then have to inform the person that they have been selected for the award.

Geez...I hate this part...I follow so many and so many are just so wonderful but alas! If I must, I must...

  1. Joey
  2. Angela
  3. Jennifer
  4. Kristin
  5. Catherine
  6. Katie

3. You have to thank the person (people) who gave you the award.

Thank you so much Amanda!


In other news...My weight seems to be holding steady right at 211 and has been for several days. I have lost 17 pounds in a little less than a month. Not too shabby if I do say so myself. Then again, liquids and mushies for a month will do that to you. I am able to start real food today. I am going to South Carolina this weekend and I'm not going to worry about what I eat there. I'm going to enjoy the fact that I can eat and then start healthy and new on Monday. My BFF bought me a cookbook that she swears by. I'm looking forward to trying out the recipes. They're all healthy and I'm hoping pretty band friendly. If I find some good ones, I'll be sure to post them here for all to enjoy. Went to the gym yesterday and worked up quite a sweat. For the first time in awhile, I went home and my legs were actually sore. I take this to be a very good thing. I know I need to step up my workouts if I'm going to be able to do this walk in November so time to really get after it. I'm hoping to be able to incorporate some Zumba and step classes in the mix to take it to a different level. It's also nice to do something other than the treadmill and elliptical. Hope everyone's having a great week! Will probably check in after my trip!

Good morning, I'm a new follower :) Congrats on your WL so far; that's a great number! I get banded in a week from today and look forward to starting excercise back post-op; specifically Nia and Zoomba.

Thanks so much for the award, Manda!! I'm honored to be in such good company! :) Congratulations on the 17 down in the last month -- that is major!! Zumba is such a great idea to mix up your workout -- will make it a lot more fun, which is a great motivator. :)
