Sorry, I'm out

A stomach bug has been making the rounds at our house and unfortunately it caught up to me last night and today. Ugh! I'm out for this challenge. I should be ready to go for the next one though.

He he...

Soldiers in the army till the conflict is o’er.
Happy are we, Happy are we!
Only healthy foods when we get to the store!
We will grin and bear it by and by!

Rose-bud Update!

Hey HWHL friends!

Here's what's going on in my life!  Jake is almost done with his cancer treatments!  He has one more to go...if his blood counts are good enough!  Yesterday his platelets were 19.  They need to be at least 65 to get chemo.  We are shooting for May 3rd!  Good news...he gained 4 lbs!!!

My Biggest Loser Team is doing great!  We have the best trainer and she really drills us on learning how to eat healthy!  It's a big change in habit eating, but the results are very good.  I have lost 26 lbs since December and 14 lbs since the competition started.  I'm putting pins in my skirts to hold them up and the team t-shirt I ordered is too big for me! 

I'm running a 5K twice a week to get warmed up for the real 5K I'm running in May (actually 2 5K's).  So actually, I'm running a 10K...I'm just splitting it up into two different days! haha  I ran this morning and did it in 44 min.  My trainer wants me to improve my time!  We've been doing weights 2-3 times a week.  I have to say...I can really feel my muscles!  My goal is to be down 3 more lbs by weigh in on May 6th!  I have finally lost enough weight that people are starting to notice! 

I didn't buy my kids any Easter candy this year.  I thought they were really bummed, so I picked up a few things on Monday...they haven't hardly eaten any of it!  I guess they are getting used to not having treats around too!  This is a very good thing!

Today's Funny

Wife to Husband: Last night there were two pieces of cake in the refrigerator and now there is only one. How do you explain that?

Husband: I guess it was so dark that I didn't see the other piece.

Diving Back In!

This has been the strangest two weeks....but it's time to dive back in. Are you ready to join me? Today was a great day. Warm weather, exercise, good food. I dove in head first!

We will have a one week challenge ending Friday. That's five days...can you do it? Then we will start a two week challenge starting Monday May 2nd.
