I'm BAAAaaack!

I'm back on the Healthy Wife wagon! June was a crazy month full of lots of activities and big changes in my family (you can read about it on my regular blog if you want) and I just didn't have the energy to track my calories and keep up with points every day.

The good news is that I maintained my weight right around 145, but I stopped exercising as vigorously so I've gone a little soft. I'm back at it again and hoping to tone up my arms in particular. I went to Girls Camp at the end of June and I was so happy to be in good shape when we went on the second year hike (6 miles)! Here's me and some of my girls doing a little Rocky-at-the-top-of-the-courthouse-steps dance:

And here's me looking like a rock star with my sweaty back after plodding into camp three and a half hours later:

Those young girls have it so good. No crotch sweat. It's a little embarrassing to be sitting around trying to assure a bunch of teenagers that you really haven't pee'd your pants!

Glad to be back with you ladies!


  1. Yey, Sue! That has got to be one of the biggest benefits of changing to a healthier lifestyle - you get to participate in more activities, like a 6-mile hike! And I bet it wasn't complete torture the whole way, because you run regularly.

  2. You look like you had a ton and fun and kicked butt on that hike!

    What is up with crotch sweat? Is that a sign of getting older? No fun!

  3. Yay Sue! We are so glad to have you back.

  4. Sue, only you could write about crotch sweat and have me totally laughing....we've missed you! I'm so impressed with anyone who goes to camp so that means I'm impressed with you. You're looking good but it sounds like it's time to toughen up your muscles again. You've come to the right place, welcome back!

  5. Yeah! Let me say it again...yeah!
