    *Friday I end up running 3 miles non-stop! I was so happy!
    *Saturday I ran another 6.16 miles. My hammies were on fire!
    *Sunday I rested so as not to completely kill myself. *LOL* Hubby and I had a date night and went to see Star Trek- awesome movie!!! I have a new client tonight woo-hoo! I will run another 3 miles tho.
    TOM has me feeling super evil so I refuse to weigh until the end of the week.

      congrats to you on your awesome workouts!!!!!!!!! You are so committed it is inspiring :)

      I've been working out everyday - mostly running 2 miles, abs, and some weights. I am also working on my eating which is my downfall...but I've been pretty good!

      I went to the tailor on saturday and she said if I lose 10 pounds I won't need the dress altered at all (its a size 10) and I'll save $40. She's giving me another 2 weeks since the wedding for my BF is July 11. I'm not doing anything crazy, just trying to be consistent.

      On a random side note - I hate Ballys! Even though its my own fault for signing the contract before reading it, we bought a house over 15 miles from ballys and they wont let us cancel our membership, they're asking 850 dollars! I know FI & I won't drive 30 minutes (15 miles with traffic!) everyday, so we're joining the YMCA tonight (1 mile from our place) and will be paying double gym memberships until October 2010! ahhhhh!

        I’m not a fan of Bally’s gym either. The prices are insane and the place is a total meat market in my opinion. That’s why we have a ton of stuff at home, so I don’t even have to be bothered with stupid gym memberships. They’re all a big scam to me. I refuse to sign a contract with anybody anymore because they are a beast to get out of if your circumstances change, and then they jack up your credit.
        Great job on your 2 miles a day. Get that eating under control and you’ll nail that 10lbs in no time flat! Keep me posted on how you’re doing. :-)

          I am jealous! I wish we had the space or money to buy stuff for home. My FI is very picky when it comes to his workout stuff. he has to have massive free weights and free standing weight benches and all this other stuff because he loves to lift, etc. It is motivating because he loves to work and it always pushing me to go....so I can't complain too much :) thanks for the support girl!

            Having a home gym is awesome I cannot lie
            Our basement is chock full of exercise machines, weights,and other "gym like" stuff. Now my hubby wants to put mirrors on the walls wich I am totally up for! I do miss being a gym rat; there is just something about "going to" the gym that makes me feel like I have really accomplished something ya know? *LOL*
            Enjoy that YMCA membership hun, those 10lbs are ready to come off, burn some fat and clean up that diet cause I'm rooting for ya!

              I ran another 3 miles last night and it felt incredible! eating was good, I have no complaints or cheats to report. I tried on a smaller skirt this morning. A few months ago I couldn't get the darn thing past my thighs but this morning I had it up and zipped up. It was tight as all get out don't get me wrong but that sucker was "UP AND OVER MY HIPS!"
              I'm gonna keep on shrinking till I get in that sucker!
              I hope everyone else is well.

                Last night I popped in a really good movie and knocked out 5 miles on my treddie. I ran the first 3 and walked the other 2. I was so NOT in the mood to exercise at all but I made a serious commitment to myself that I was gonna handle my biznazz with this weight loss and NOT be lazy this time so I manned up and did what I had to do. I can tell that my legs are getting stronger because my hammies aren't burning like they used to. I blew thru that 3 miles like it was nothing! I guess I'll start adding on more distance next month. My eating has been great too. I've been eating more veggies and less meat and I also started drinking distilled water. I had some tap water and it was like...yuuuuuuck!
                On another note, my shipment came from Vicky's Secret yesterday The only downfall to this weight loss is that my boobies have gone away. I've never really been a big busted woman but when I was heavier I wore a 38C and now I'm comfortable in a 34B

                  I'm so happy for you!!! You're so motivated and you're doing an awesome Job!!! I ran 3 miles this morning and lifted with Jason. We decided to motivate eachother to workout in the AM because it's so hard to force yourself to go after a long day at work. My eating has been good too! I had a hard boiled egg and some cheerios for breakfast - about 160 cals. I'm trying to stay under 1200/day. I'm SUPER excited because tonight we are getting our marriage license!!!!

                    Okay so yesterday evening was super busy for me so there was no workout. Not only that, I needed a rest day :) We got in later than what I expected so my AM workout was cut short because I slept in a bit later to get more sleep. I did manage to squeeze in 21 minutes of walking on my treddie and 15 minutes on my elli machine. Between the two, I racked up a mile and burned up 316.8 calories. Not bad for such a short workout. I love my AM workouts because they really set my day in a more energized motion. Today I’m really amping up my veggie intake.
                    My new client told a few people and now I have two more people who want to work with me next week…and the initial client also signed up for 6 more weeks of training! Woo-hoo!!
                    All of this new business is motivating me to be in the very best physical shape possible! I'm my own best advertisement
                    My eating just keeps getting better everyday. I am really taking my time to lose this weight and it's coming off nicely. I might take a peek at the scale tomorrow morning but I'm not sure. I hate scales personally. I do know my clothes are really getting baggy so I'm super duper pumped about that.
                    I'm thinking that I will start looking for MOH dresses in the fall and make my final decision by the new year. the bride-to-be is really being cool about my dress in that, she's letting "ME" pick it.
                    I've also got to book our photograper in Vegas because next year will be 5 years of marriage and I want anniversary pics by the same guy who took our wedding pics when we were married (in Vegas). He still has our wedding pics up on his website too. I just think that is way cool

                      My weekend was jam packed with exercise thank goodness.
                      Friday was a rest day for me. I just was NOT in the mood to go anywhere near my basement for ANY form of exercise. *LOL*
                      Saturday I turned things around and took care of business. I ran 3.5 miles! That’s a half mile more than I am used to running and it was not fun but I pushed myself a bit and I did it like a trooper. I even ran a little faster too. I walked 1.5 miles and finished my cardio with 20 minutes on my elli machine. I finished the session with 100 crunches. Total calories burned from my cardio was 1007
                      This morning I was up at 4:30 and I hammered out 45 strong minutes on my elli machine. 667 calories burned! I feel really good, a sweat A LOT and I am really trying to stay focused this week on getting in more AM workouts. My eating has been really good. I’m aiming for it to be superb this week!
