Waiting to get out~

This past weekend we didn't do too much. We did go to get some more fish for our tank. Pepper really enjoys watching the fish. Cole will make a great dad someday just look at him with Pepper-haha.
On Sunday afternoon I attempted to make brown bread-it didn't turn out quite as planned. A little uncooked in the middle. It hasn't stopped Cole from eating it-haha-he said he still really loves it. I also made brownies cause I'm a glutton for punishment. I ate some with my flex points but I may have gone over. Boo~ After posting yesterday about having to get my exercise on track I decided today to take some pics to prove to you all that I'm totally serious. I decided to wear my pajama top so I would get a happy feeling from that at least.
I watched How its made while on the treadmill. I love that show.

Warning-this isn't pretty. While I do sweat sometimes while working out I usually don't push myself to the max. I did today. The reflection didn't work well with my camera but I did 45mins. For me that is amazing. My heart rate ranged from 132-151. I did 3.0 - 3.8. In the 45 mins I did just a tad over 3 miles. I burned 354 calories.

I can really feel it in my legs right now. I'm really, really proud of myself. It felt really amazing to stick to a goal I set out for myself. One day at a time. By November I can have my pick of wedding dresses.
Today I heard a quote that Michelangelo said : "Every block of stone has a statue inside it and its the task of the sculptor to discover it."
It is my job through diet and exercise to peel away my layers and become who I want to be.


  1. I'm really, really proud of you, too! :)

  2. Great pictures! Brownies are so tough to resist. I'm happy you made it to the gym, girl!!

  3. Thanks for the comment today Candace. I am trying to talk myself out of feeling like crapola.

    You can get those moods at I just love all the little moods they have :-)
