I finally grew a pair....

and posted my blog on my facebook account.  I was debating it for about two months now!   I am SO glad I did!  I didn't even tell a lot of people that I was running or losing weight so I probably shocked them a bit!  I can't BELIEVE how many positive comments I got today!  Let me tell ya - I really needed them lately!  I had a really hard time getting back into the groove after that bad cold.  To tell the truth - I still have junk in my lungs, but I don't FEEL sick anymore so all is good!  For some reason I was the most worried about my family knowing about me losing weight.  I guess I have always felt like I was less than all my cousins because they are all so slender and beautiful and me - well - you know what I look like!

Tonight's workout was TOUGH!  Why is it that 2.5 miles on the treadmill is harder than 3 miles on the road?  I think it has everything to do with boredom honestly.  I'm getting so sick of the treadmill, but what can I do, I don't have many options!  I run when I can and that's usually late at night!  At least I do it!  I know in the past I would have used that as an excuse NOT to workout! 

On Sunday night I tried the fit test for Insanity.  It's a great workout for sure, but my knee is just not ready for jumping yet.  Maybe when I lose a bunch more weight.  Anyway - I was so worried since Sunday night that my knee would give me problems while running.  I was worried about it to the point of distraction actually.  Well, I am happy to report that my knee was just fine!  YAY!  I seriously love running.  I have to admit though - I love it more when I'm done. HAHAHA  It just makes you feel so good!  OMG once again I made an idiot of myself at the gym.  The same guy was there from yesterday too - he must think I am a total knob!  I was running on the treadmill and AGAIN (yes, I've done this before) I accidentally snagged the emergency stop magnet with my hand!  The treadmill stopped suddenly and I slammed into the console.  I'm pretty sure I yelled out "son of a bitch!". LOL  I saw the guy look at me and then chuckle.  Oh Lord - it's a good thing I'm already married because nobody could love me like Pete!  HAHAHAHA

Well, I'd better cut this short - my baby girl is crying. I'm pretty sure she is cutting two more teeth.  She has not slept well in three nights. 

Thanks for reading!  Have a wonderful day!! -Monica


  1. Wow! I don't think I'll ever "come out" on Facebook about my blog. I don't think I want my family and friends reading it. :-) My husband didn't even know until almost 2 months after I started it.

    1. LOL I love how you phrased it! Coming out was a little scary at first, but it seems to have been a good choice! I never told anyone that I was losing weight! I don't know, with my grandmother dying it just felt like keeping secrets - even good ones - are not a great idea.
