Still here!

So, Sharon checked up to be sure I wasn't "in a funk" and thus not posting. Thanks, Sharon, that's what this accountability is all about. I must admit that I lost a bit of my fire over vacation, then I struggled a bit through my run this morning, but I met with the trainer today and worked hard at the gym and that renewed my spirit! Tonight is tennis (weather permitting) and I'm hoping to swim tomorrow.

I discovered a really fun new snack in the organic freezer section..individual "Sponge Bob" packs of edamame - immature soybeans in the pod. One pack has 38 calories but 3 g of protein and they are fun to dig out of the pods and pretty yummy to eat. Even the kids enjoy them. I'm trying to get my eating back on track. Yesterday I had to ease the transition with a Hershey bar with almonds. Darn those chocolate cravings!

So during the workout I shared bits about our vacation. I'm afraid the trainer probably thinks I'm some sort of alcoholic now! We did enjoy assorted mixed drinks on a daily basis and I think I said that one day we popped open a bottle of wine at 11 am!! I LOVE vacation!

This weekend's run is to be 7 miles and they go up by a mile each week for a while. It's exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. I got majorly chaffed by my shorts one day at the beach and have to choose my long-run shorts wisely now.

Keep making those small changes that add up! Go girls!! Dream about whatever body part might motivate you (my stomache) to dig a little deeper.
