Good morning to one and all. First, I'd like to thank Heather for the blog award. Will do that post a little later this week.
Second, it's that time of the week again...my weekly weigh in. 195 lbs. -1 from last week. So the 0 lb change on Friday turned into 1 lb by Monday. Go figure. I'm happy...makes Mondays something to look forward to.
Thanks all for the hair loss reassurance. Per Lynda and Lori's advice, I will be upping my protein immediately. I'm starting to add a scoop of protein powder to my morning coffee and will be giving Lynda's smoothie a try next week.
Exercise went well this weekend. I got in my Week 2 Day 3 5k training on Friday. Blech. Still definitely not a runner. My BFF and I went to Latin Heat on Saturday. Apparently, the last 2 weeks (the only 2 weeks, for that matter) were being taught by substitutes and the regular lady was back on Saturday. Holy cow! The turnout was amazing (at least 40 people there) and I can see why. This chick could probably kill me if she wanted to but, luckily, she didn't. Great workout though. I like it more each time I go. Sunday, I was a lazy blob. So be it. Today I start Week 3 Day 1. I'm going to give this a try and if I just can't cut it, then I'll repeat Week 2. No shame in that.
My daughter is still sick. Pretty sure it's the flu. Hoping she's feeling better this morning but we'll see. If not, it's off to my mom's house again. *sigh*
So for any new followers and because I like to toot my own horn to my old followers, I walked the Susan G Komen 3 Day in November. As a reward, my BFF (who did the walk with me and kicked its butt) and I decided to do a girls' cruise to celebrate. The time has come, my friends. We leave for Long Beach this Thursday and set sail on Friday. It's a short one - just 3 nights with a stop in Ensanada. I'm glad it's short. I've never been on a cruise before and both my sister and my mother are prone to seasickness (both have gotten seasick on every cruise they've done). I'm coming armed with Dramamine and hoping I take after my dad. The biggest stressor of this is 1) leaving my girls for those few days and 2) finding stuff to WEAR. I'm not feeling particularly good about any of my clothes right now so it's been tough deciding what to take. Shopping is out of the question so I'm trying to make do. I mean, jeans and tshirts I can handle. It's the "clubbing" and "dinner" outfits I'm having issues with. I'm sure I'll figure it out. I'm getting pretty excited about the whole thing now that it's finally here. Any tips from veteran cruisers out there?
So I suppose I've babbled enough for a Monday morning. Hope everyone has a great week!
