It's Been a While....

Sorry it's been so long since I posted....seems like things are always keeping me busy and never really any time to blog - I know that most of you are also feeling that same way, so I know you understand!

Weight-loss progress is still nothing, but I'm trying new things and still working hard towards my goals......

I was discouraged that I lost so much of my running ground when I took off for a week to take care of Michael. I really fell back to like square one. I am bummed.....I have just decided not to push myself so hard and to just be proud of what I am RIGHT NOW and just be okay with that.

I'm still just watching what I eat and trying to eat healthy while working out as much as I possibly can manage. Mostly I just struggle with the energy thing (Having a damp and cloudy summer has totally sucked because of the lack of sunshine we get in AK.....summer is like our ONLY time to get sun, so it sucks that it's been like non-existent this just makes you so tired and sleepy....)

Anyway, just wanted to update that I'm still here and still working along with all of you other ladies to be a healthier and stronger me!!!! Love you guys!!!

Well, thanks for all of your encouragement. Although I still haven't made any real progress my muscles are starting to feel a lot more "toned" so I count that as a huge up-lifter!

I did end up getting my thyroid tested last week and the results were totally normal so the only real reason for not loosing weight is simply that my body is resisting it, I guess....bummer....

I'm still just working really hard every single day and hoping that one of these days soon it will start to pay off. I'm running and walking further than before and now I'm also doing more of the P90X workout videos too. (they are HARD!!)

Anyway, I wanted to post an update for those of you who were concerned for my thyroid. (It's sad to say that I was secretly hoping that was the problem...I guess I should be really glad that it's NOT a problem, but anyway.....)

I'll keep you posted as I progress through yet another week!!......Today starts week #18 on my long and drawn out saga of a weight-loss program....=)
