Skating the weight off!

Hi guys, Sorry I missed my last post date...... but I am making up for it today with a rather long post with some fun new stuff!!!

This week I have been reading about how good roller skating is for you. You can burn SOOOO many calories. And here's the kicker.... it's fun!!! So I went to my closet and pulled out my roller blades and went up and down the street. OUCH!!! Now I remember why I hadn't used them in forever..... they hurt the arches of my feet so bad that I want to cry. And they are shaped awkwardly (like ski boots almost) and so its hard to just stand in them or walk normally across the grass.

Sooo - I went to my dear frenemy, Ebay, and bid on some skates..... you know like the ones you used to get at the skating rinks (not inline roller blades). But I was nervous those would hurt too and I wasn't sure what size I needed because I couldn't try them on. Then I see Sketchers Roller Skates in my size exactly.... and they look like regular shoes with skates attached. So I won a pair this morning! I am just hoping they are as comfy as the look!

Ok, also this week I am doing the no sugar 3-Sisters-Challenge. And so far its no problem. I think its because I did that veggies-only week and THAT was soooooo hard. So now just leaving out sweets doesn't seem bad at all..... the challenge will have to be harder next time!!!

Exercise history for this week is good for me. I worked out Monday, Tuesday, and then got up and did an hour on the gazelle this morning! I feel great and my stats are starting to show my work. I am getting very excited about this!!!

Stats temporarily removed.

Yay!!! I am so excited..... pounds are starting to come off and you can see it in my inches as well. Thank you Carlyn and Emmalee for encouraging me and jump starting this blog with such a passion. You guys keep me going because I know we can all do it together!!!
