Have no fear!

I am still here!  My Mom is FINALLY here!  WHOO HOO!  I probably won't be updating a whole lot while she is visiting - I want to spend every moment I can with her!  It's going to be SO hard to say goodbye  next week!

I've been doing pretty darned good!  I have not gone running in a little while but I have been stepping up the activity level so I think it is keeping the pounds away!  I had gained 6.5 pounds last week - YIKES!  I'm thinking it was mostly due to dehydration.  I was just having a hard time with my face pains.  It was really the worst bout of pains I have ever had to date.  I am going to see my doctor tomorrow and hopefully get a referral to a neurologist.  This week I decided I was NOT going to let that 6.5 pounds discourage me.  I worked really hard and ate really clean and guess what?  This week I was down 8. something pounds!  That means I am 2 lbs away from losing 50lbs at weight watchers!  56 if you count what Idid before WW!!  WHOO HOO!! 

In other news - we have decided to switch back to the Y for our gym.  It's just too expensive to stick with the closer gym and still pay for Colin's swimming lessons and eventually Susie's gymnastics lessons.  It's cheaper to be a member.  Thankfully with the cooler weather coming, I will be able to run outside again and I can just hit the gym 2 - 3 times a week for my weight training.  That will be good - I have REALLY slacked on weight training.  I don't know why I do that.  I really ENJOY it - especially when I'm the only girl lifting free weights!  It's more an issue of getting back into a routine.  Colin starts school in two weeks - I should be able to get back on track really soon!

Well, I'm off - lots to do!!  Thanks for hanging on!  I hope I didn't lose all of you guys!  I LOVE reading all your responses!!!  Have a WONDERFUL day! -Monica
