First week of Lifetime.....

Forgive me, friends, for I did sin. Okay, actually, I "celebrated" with a girls weekend in Virginia.

One of the girls brought lumpia (I guess the best way to describe it is "Filipino spring roll")..... oh my, was it good. I made some good choices and some bad ones. On two of the three mornings I was there, I walked on base. It was kind of funny -- on Monday, I got to see some of the units doing their PT and they looked at me as if to say, "Hey, how come SHE gets cool exercise clothes and an MP3 play.... oh. She's a civilian!"

I put back on some poundage -- and so far, I've gotten about half of it back off. I don't weigh in again until the first week of August.... WHEW! So I'm going to bust my butt off to get back down. I know what to do and how to do it, and I'm well on my way!

So what does this mean? It means I'm human. I still am tempted, and I do give in on occasion. Being a Lifetime member doesn't mean that I am suddenly beyond it all. This is the tougher part of the journey........ not that getting TO goal was "easy" by any stretch. But this is the real test.

Two weeks. I will kick those remaining pounds into the dust. I know I can!
