26 Days to Go!

What am awesome weekend!  I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July holiday.  We are blessed to live in this great nation.  Being with family and friends has kept me from feeling so sad.  I did get to hear my little Angel’s voice calling Mamamama, which made me miss her more than I already do.  I told her, “Don’t forget about Mommy”.  I pray she hasn’t. 25 days down 26 to go.  We’re almost half way there!!!!!! 

My plans were to take another photograph of myself to see if I have made any progress in my attempts to run and get back into shape.  I had some excellent song suggestions on my FaceBook page and have since cleaned up my playlist.  I only ran 3 times this past week which is 2 days less than I had hoped.  Not only that, like most people I ate all weekend.  There was a Mediterasian dinner Thursday night, sushi Friday night, hamburgers and hotdogs Saturday (call me un-American but I don’t eat hotdogs.  Have you ever seen the show History of the Hotdog?  If you have you wouldn’t eat them either).  Saturday night was a friend’s party which consisted of your typical party foods, Sunday was a craw-fish boil (suggestion: add brussel sprouts, asparagus, and mushrooms to your boil along with the usual corn and potatoes.  These extras are awesome!  Full of flavor and texture), of course on Monday there were ribs, all the trimmings and fireworks!  
 All that being stated I think I put on a few pounds instead of dropping some, but it was worth it!  Boot camp starts tomorrow and don’t be surprised if I write that I am so sore I can’t walk!  That will be worth it…… right??????

On a side note I have great news, there is a new virtual magazine being launched in Mobile, AL, and I have been asked to be a contributing writer.  (I see a book deal in my future.  What is the point of going to hell and back emotionally and mentally if you don’t write a book that has potential to be a Lifetime movie?!?!?!?)  The official launch date is sometime towards the end of July.  The web address is Check it out!!!  I will keep you posted as we get closer.
