O.k., in Feb. 2007 I sprained my ankle. I really destroyed it in April of 2007; my doc gave me an air cast to wear. It never got better. I saw some neuro doc about 6 weeks ago who took an x-ray and gave me a steroid injection which did nothing. It felt better for a few weeks (had nothing to do with the shot) and now it really started hurting again...and it figures, I've been doing so well with the treadmill and the bike!!! I'm supposed to call him and the plan was to send me for an MRI. I'm so upset because I NEED to exercise every day in order to see a loss and I seem to just be starting to kick my body into gear. I'm going to try and get on the bike today at the gym (maybe I'll pad my sore butt with some toilet paper...I HATE bike seats!). Just so darn angry!!!!

8.5 down

63 to go.

I've been going to the gym 3 or 4 times a week and either using the treadmill or the bike for 30 minutes. I started using the hand weights at home this week, and adding in a little of my dance cardio dvd (o.k., a little being 10 minutes on Monday afternoon).

I want that "Lost 10 pounds" next week!!!!

BIG sigh

Here we are, the start of week 7 and I've lost 7.7 lbs. So much for losing 25 by my birthday (May 13); I'll be lucky if I lose 15! Heck, 10!

Anyway...I have an "event" on April 5th and I'd love to be able to go out and buy a new "grown-up" outfit for it. 32 days, how many pounds do you think I can lose by then.

I need this snow to melt so that I can take the stroller and go for walks. Or put snowtires on the stroller (do they make snowtires for strollers? mental note...create a snow-stroller and make lots of money). We took the kids to the playground yesterday. They got a kick out of playing in the sandbox which was covered in snow.

Today is Red-White-Blue Day to celebrate Dr. Suess. I have to remember to get a pic of the kids later before the start shedding clothes (usually the split second they walk in the front door). G even has a Cat-In-The-Hat Hat.

O.k., off to do something. Happy March.

Please Pray for Chelsea
