Checking In!

I am so into this blogging thing! I actually look forward to being able to work on it. I will be a little more picture crazy... Not only with pictures of my pets but of my friends as well. I will try and keep them all organized in the other picture blog, but I will be sharing them some on here too.

Oh! I have something I want to share with all you! http://www.hungry-girl.com/ A friend of mine sent me the link on Facebook earlier and its adorable! I've already found a few recipes I am going to try.

The diet and exercise plan is actually going really well. I'm still in the take off phase of the Ameri Shape plan, so my food choices are limited right now. Still, it's been easy to follow. I've basically been eating tons of fruit and grilled chicken. I hit the gym for my 30 minute workout on Monday and it was actually not so bad. I was a little sore today, but I think I will be fine for my return to the gym in the morning.

5 minutes on the elliptical was not nearly as hard as it was last week. In fact, for the last 30 seconds I pushed and went a lot harder than I had been the couple minutes before. It felt good.

I am quickly finding that I am liking the way I feel after I work out.

The BFF and my friend Haley will both be starting Nurse Practictioner school in August. I am so very proud of both of them! You two will do great! And Hay-Hay, I know this has been a rough couple of weeks for you, but it will get better :) You have a lot of people who love you.

It's true! I love how I feel after I've done my jog. Sometimes it stinks WHILE jogging, I ain't even gonna lie! But the feeling afterwards is great! And I've heard over time that exercising regularly actually makes you enjoy the exercise itself. Can't wait for THAT to happen, right?? :P

Keep up that hard work, girlie!! :)

I love the after work out buzz, I feel like my whole body is vibrating!

I always feel better when I eat well and work out.

Thanks for checking out my blog yesterday on my SITS day.

I find that somedays I'm so tired, 15 minutes seems insanely difficult. But then I get distracted and look at the clock and it's all of a sudden 17 minutes, so I plug along for 3 more and there - 20! As a result, I require distraction to work out - music, TV shows, magazine articles... if only we could blog from the elliptical...
Keep up the good work
(And wear some white gloves! The prettier you feel, the more you work out - or for me that's true!)

Hey! I found you on SITS. Just wanted to say hi and that I like your blog.

I am trying super hard to lose weight after having my daughter 8 months ago. I recently started phase 1 of South Beach (I'm 1/2 way through my 2nd week of it...it's working! I'm losing!) I'm curious about this Ameri-Shape plan you're on. Have you blogged about it in the past?

I also wanted to tell you I've given your blog an award! You can pick it up here: http://itsanovemberbaby.blogspot.com/2009/07/blog-award-sweet.html
