I've missed you all!

Hi Girls!
I fell by the wayside.

I have had 14 people at my house for the last few weeks.
It's been wonderful.
We will have people here until the 17th, and I haven't figured out how to balance much in the process, but I'll be back.
I promise.
The good things is that I have been walking all day every day as we go sight see. Also, I have been eating really healthy because the restaurants we eat at don't have gluten free options so I have been limited to fresh plain salad every day, dressing free.
Thank goodness I remembered to bring my bag of nuts.
All that walking and salad left a lot of room for a delicious dinner.

Then at night I have been walking with my mom.
I feel like my bucket has been filled.

Cammy and Jenn, you two are so amazing. Jenn, I had to jump up and down to cheer for you for loosing 10 lbs. How cool is that! You two are an inspiration to me. I wish I could join in on your runs. Jenn, when you come out to dc this fall, we'll have to get a group of us together for a group run. That would be fun.

Queen Vee, don't give up!! Push through that plateau. Sometimes it is good to take a recovery week, to allow your body to have a break and return strong. I hope I have that type of determination and energy when I am your age. Thanks for being an inspiration to me.

Sue, I laughed so hard at your crotch sweat. I am still laughing.

Audrey, I loved your post about why we are doing this. Thanks for everything you do for us. We are all blessed for knowing you. I'll jump in on the next challenge. I think I have only reported my complete numbers a few times. I seem to get distracted at writing things down as the week goes on.
That's something I need to work on.

Keep up the good work girls!

Alicia, hang in there, you are stronger than you think.

You are all so wonderful!


  1. Hello Marci! Yep, Sue is a riot! I'm fortunate to have her for a sister. I bet everyone else knows this about you, but I'm curious about the whole gluten thing. I read the post/comments a while back about the yummy gluten-free chocolate cake. What foods can't you eat, and what kinds of substitutes do you use? Just curious.

  2. Marci, so happy you picked yourself up and checked in with your mates here at Heathy've been missed. It can be a challenge to do everything you would like in the summer when you have children and a house full of guests to keep fed and happy. It looks like your hosting responsibilities are burning up calories and that you're eating healthy even while you entertain such a large group. You should get points for that because your circumstance, although fun, is definitely a challenge when you are trying to exercise, eat healthy and be a good supporter.

  3. Marci, I was begining to wonder where you were and was about to send you a message. Can't wait to have you back and get an update on those running shoes!

  4. You can always count on me to tell it like it is!
