Hey everyone!

Yes, this time of year is super tough! I have eating SOOOOOO many treats this past week that I know are so bad for me. My stomach is starting to feel it again and some of my jeans are a bit snug. YIKES!!!! Okay, I made it through this week and now it is time to move on!

I was able to get a 5 mile run in on Tuesday (which just about killed me!) and another 3 miles today. So 8 miles Christmas week is not too shabby. Next week my goal will be a little higher with some weight training included.

My next goal.
I have decided that I have to ALWAYS have a goal or I will slack on the exercise and healthy eating. My husband and I have decided that we are going to do our next marathon in May and another one in September. Then in between we will do some 5ks and 10ks. I love having something to look forward to and reach for.

I am going to start writing down my points again, which I have not done in WEEKS!! I want to be accountable for what I put in my body.

I hope you all have a GREAT week!!

Okay, this morning I forced myself out of bed again at 5:30 am. I went to the gym and rode the bike for 1/2 an hour on level 4, doing 90 mph. Then I decided to do the Elliptical for 15 minutes. After that I did about 50 crunches. I was not feeling it as much today as I was on Monday. I came home after my workout and was a major grump. Hopefully my body will get used to doing this again.

I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far. We decorated sugar cookies last night and I think I ate half the batch! I love this time of year but I am so ready for the temptations to be out of my house. My husband & 2 daughters are doing "sugar free" in 2010. They will have minimal sugar during the week and then can have all the sugar they want on Friday nights. They did this in 2007 and it was great for them. I am not able to commit to anything SUGAR FREE. Sorry!! I gotta have my white, sweet, candy fix!!

Do it NOW!!!

Do not wait to start on your way to a healthier YOU!!! Yes, this is the time of year to eat lots of yummies & goodies but why not throw in some exercise, too? I wish I would have started doing that years ago instead of just this year!! This weekend we did a lot of our Christmas baking and I enjoyed every last drop!!!! You can still have a great season without depriving yourselves, just make some changes like adding a glass of water, etc.

This morning I decided I wanted to get up at 5:30 am to exercise for 1 hour. Well, the alarm went off and I hit snooze. As I was about to fall back to sleep the radio kept making weird noises on my alarm clock (which means I hit something else when I hit snooze). I took that as a sign that I needed to get my bootie out of bed and just do it!!! I made it to the gym by 5:45 and then ran for 5 miles on the treadmill (my goal was 2!) Then I did 5 different upper body machines for 3 sets of 10 reps. I really need to tone up my flabby arms again!!!

I hope you are all having a fabulous day and I just want you to know that you are worth it!!!! Just do it!!

Yes, I know it has been over 2 months since I have updated My Pink Loser. I am so sorry about that!!! I will do better in the future. I promise!!!

My family went on a Disney Cruise 2 weeks ago and I ate a TON of good food but I remembered to run on the ship. It felt so good to exercise when I knew I wasn't eating right. Here is a pic of me in the Bahamas.

Today is Friday and so far I have only ran one day and it was for 4 miles. I also weighed in at Weight Watchers and I am still in my Lifetime range. I weighed 124.2. I remember this time last year and I didn't really care what I put in my body. At least this year I am conscious of that even though I am still enjoying the goodies.

Hope you all have a great day!
