it's monday...

so that means it's official, the MS 150 is THIS WEEKEND!! AHHHH!!! it's kind of surreal... i mean, i've been preparing for this since november, and back then, it seemed like a lifetime away... i feel like i've gone backwards in my training... i did soooo well from november to about march... then the spring hit and i gained 25 pounds and got lazy... this is what worries me the most... i haven't trained like i should have since march... i mean, i still rode my bike and i'm actually up to over 500 miles worth of riding (which i started in march), but still... it makes me really nervous about this weekend... how in the h-e-double-hockeysticks am i going to go 85 miles in one day AND then 65 the next?????

well enough of the whining and, well, on to some more :) i HAVE to get my eating under control... i actually haven't been doing BAD per se, but i'm not doing good either... we've been going out to eat too much - i really need to get back to cooking more... which is totally a goal for this summer...

as a matter of fact, i have LOTS of goals for this summer, and not all are weight related... first of all, i really need to keep up with the housework... if i'd just sweep every once in a while rather than letting it pile up, it wouldn't take an hour and a half to sweep the house (see, we have a collie, and his hair is RIDICULOUS and covers our ENTIRE house!)... we spent most of yesterday cleaning EVERYTHING and it feels so good to sit here and not look at dog hair on the floor, dirty dishes in the sink, etc etc etc... again, if i just keep up with it, cleaning day wouldn't be so bad... i wouldn't dread it so much that i put it off... and i think some of the stress on my relationship with my husband would be relieved... i mean, we don't fight about housework and he NEVER demands that i do anything - trust me, he knows better than that - but i think deep down he wishes i were better at housework... anyways, my other goals, which are weight related, include the usual - working out, eating right, losing weight... i hope that by the end of the summer i'm relatively close to where i was a few months ago... i cry everytime i look at my very first post on here... go check it out for yourself - quote unquote i'm 140 pounds... yeah, i freaking WAS 140 pounds!! have you NOTICED my weigh-ins for LHA??? 161....

anyways, i read some blogs over the weekend and discovered a cool thing that some people are doing, which is a blog hop... you can sign in and post your blog on theirs, while visiting other people's at the same time... i want to participate, so i'll probably post a blog hop on here later or tomorrow... see, i don't necessarily care about followers, but i like to see who visits me, and i LOVE 'meeting' new people... i follow TONS of blogs, but over the time since i've started blogging, i've really found a select few that i truly enjoy and look forward to... a blog hop like that helps me find even more that i enjoy...

anyways, so look forward to that coming soon to a theater near you... happy monday er-body!!

I know exactly where you are coming from with the housework stuff, it's like a never ending battle...especially with dogs. They generate an incredible amount of mess.

You will do awesome in the MS 150! Don't stress too much, you can do it!

MS 150! Awesome! I did the MS 150...quite a few years ago...in Colorado! You can do it. You have logged the miles. Just make sure you drink and eat along the way and you will cross the finish line! Not to worry!

Good luck!

I can relate to a lot of what you said in your post.

Best of luck to you this weekend. Try not to focus on how you've "slipped". Just invision finishing and feeling so relived that you accomplished a huge goal.

You can do it!!

Shoes specially made for losing weight are available today and [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt shoes cheap[/URL][/B] can be quite effective. These shoes have been out for a while and some companies have risen to the top [B]mbt shoes review[/B] demonstrated that they can provide a quality product to consumers. One [U]discount mbt shoes[/U] such type of these shoes is the MBT Shoe made by a company called Swiss Masai. In case you [U][B]mbt shoes best prices[/U][/B] did not MBT stands for Masai Barefoot Technology. In this write up we want to take a [U]discount mbt shoes[/U] closer look at these special shoes.

The development and idea behind the MBT shoe design is quite [U][B]MBT[/U][/B] interesting. What the shoe attempts to do is structure the shape of the shoe so [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] that it simulates walking on sand. Specifically, the they want to attempt to make it as if you are walking [U]MBT shoes[/U] along the natural sand environment of the Masai in Kenya. Sports trainers have known for quite a while now [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] that working out on dry sand is a great way to get in excellent cardiovascular condition. As you [U]mbt discount shoes[/U] walk on sand it creates an uneven surface on your feet and it forces you to shift your center of gravity to [U]discount mbt shoes[/U] an unnatural position. Your body compensates for this by using several different [B]MBT[/B] muscle groups in your feet, calves, thighs, and torso that you would not use wearing typical shoes. This is the ideas [U]mbt discount shoes[/U] behind the MBT weight loss shoes and it does seem to [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt sandals[/URL][/B] work for some people.

More specifically, MBT makes several positive claims [U]mbt shoes clearance[/U] and benefits from wearing their shoes. They will take muscle groups [U][B]mbt shoes review[/U][/B] not normally used in walking and make them active. The shoes will give you a better posture, and a more effective [U][B]mbt shoes sale[/U][/B] gait when walking with or without the shoes. It can [B]MBT shoes[/B] potentially help you with problems you may have with your back, hips, legs, and feet. The [U][B]mbt sandals[/U][/B] shoes can help you recover from injuries to your [B]mbt sneakers[/B] tendons, joints, ligaments, or muscles. The shoes are also designed to alleviate tension and stress [U]mbt sandals[/U] on your lower joints.

Another particular claim [B]mbt shoes review[/B] of MBT is that is you walk one mile in these weight [U][B]mbt sneakers[/U][/B] loss shoes it will be as if you walked two miles in ordinary shoes, and you will burn equivalent calories. One thing [B]mbt sneakers[/B] is for sure, users find that after the first few [B]buy mbt shoes[/B] times they walk in the shoes their calf and thigh muscles are sore. Also, while you are [U]mbt shoes review[/U] just starting to use the shoes they will feel uncomfortable [U]mbt walking shoes[/U] but that feeling goes away after twenty [U]MBT shoes[/U] minutes or so. Once you get used to the feel of the shoes users find that they can [U][B]buy mbt shoes[/U][/B] walk effortlessly and comfortably. The shape of the sole is designed [U][B]MBT shoes[/U][/B] to make you walk with your back straight and your [B]mbt shoes sale[/B] stomach flat, and your whole stride shortens up and quickens. These are [U][B]mbt sandals[/U][/B] the major effects that owners of MBT shoes [U][B]footwear etc[/U][/B] experience.

If you're interested in improving your health, it [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt sneakers[/URL][/B] can be beneficial to start from the ground up. Let's talk about your footwear. How does [B]mbt walking shoes[/B] yours rank? Some so-called fitness shoes merely look great, but don't really provide [B]mbt sandals[/B] any actual health benefits. Other shoes actually make a [U]mbt shoes sale[/U] legitimate difference. If you want footwear that truly helps, MBT shoes are the first [U][B]mbt sandals[/U][/B] step toward a healthier you.

What does MBT stand for? Good question. The [B]MBT[/B] answer: Masai Barefoot Technology. They're designed to [B]MBT[/B] simulate walking barefoot, which helped our ancestors to walk [U]buy mbt shoes[/U] healthier than we do. Modern humans cram their feet into all kinds [U][B]MBT[/U][/B] of crazy, uncomfortable shoes, and we walk on [U][B]footwear etc[/U][/B] unnatural surfaces. MBT returns our feet to their natural, healthier [U]mbt shoes cheap[/U] environment.

MBT shoes actually trigger and enforce the [B]mbt shoes clearance[/B] tiny muscles that cause our bodies to naturally absorb [U]mbt sneakers[/U] shock. The patented construction of the MBT soles features a [U][B]mbt walking shoes[/U][/B] unique sensor that causes a simulation of being on uneven [U]mbt walking shoes[/U] ground. It causes an instability that causes the body [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt discount shoes[/URL][/B] to react with slight movements to compensate for the instability. Thus, a "rolling" process [B]mbt shoes best prices[/B] begins. This active, natural balancing act causes our bodies to automatically [U][B]buy mbt shoes[/U][/B] exercise. As a result, muscles are strengthened and toned and posture is improved. Also, we experience less joint stress and back [U]mbt shoes cheap[/U] pain. Clearly, it's quite a workout, and the benefits are vast.

Many top athletes credit MBT shoes for enhancing their [U][B]buy mbt shoes[/U][/B] training routines. Celebrities are also singing MBT's praises [B]MBT shoes[/B] for their alleged ability to tone, reduce cellulite and assist in weight loss. Naturally, this has caused the shoes to [U][B]mbt shoes sale[/U][/B] get quite a bit of attention.



Though it unquestionably sounds a bit unnerving to attempt [B]mbt sneakers[/B] to learn to walk in these shoes, it's a quick process [B]mbt shoes review[/B] to master, and the benefits are well worth it. If you want to try [U][B]mbt sandals[/U][/B] the experience before rushing to buy a pair, try this [U][B]mbt walking shoes[/U][/B] easy experiment: Get outside and walk barefoot on a soft, uneven surface. Make [B]mbt shoes sale[/B] sure it's natural ground. Sand works great for this purpose. Notice how [B]mbt shoes best prices[/B] your body automatically compensates [U][B]mbt sneakers[/U][/B] on its own to maintain proper balance on the unstable [U][B]mbt sneakers[/U][/B] surface. Feel your muscles working differently than they do when you usually walk on man-made ground. That's your body forcing you to keep its natural [B]mbt sneakers[/B] balance. Do you feel your muscles are stimulated more [B]MBT shoes[/B] than usual?


Now you see why keeping a natural balance is crucial toward maintaining [B]MBT shoes[/B] a healthier you. If you're making your health a priority, then doesn't it make [U][B]mbt shoes cheap[/U][/B] sense to choose footwear that not only increases your fitness level, but also [B]mbt shoes sale[/B] supports improved overall health? Now that you understand what all the [U][B]MBT[/U][/B] hype is about, perhaps it's time to try the MBT experience. Your body will thank [B]footwear etc[/B] you.

As y'all might have noticed, I will do whatever it takes to [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany jewellery[/URL][/B] weed out the most popular and chic jewelry around, even it takes traveling to [U][B]tiffany sets[/U][/B] very warm, beautiful areas like the island of Siesta Key in Florida. In fact, I'm even staying an extra few days here [U]pandora beads[/U] just to make sure that I absorb as much information and style as humanly [B]tiffany uk[/B] possible (either that or I'm simply not interested in journeying back to the cold tundra that is New York City). Either way, this is the best way for me to [B]pandora bracelets[/B] report back to you all the excellent styles that are pervading the fashion scene for the [U]tiffany rings][/U] spring and summer of 2009!

If any of you saw the 2008 romantic comedy, Fool's [U][B]pandora uk[/U][/B] Gold, I'm certain you found yourself frantically Googling Kate Hudson's Palm [B][URL=http://www.tiffanyfree.uk.com]tiffany co[/URL][/B] Tree Necklace to find out where you could get one just like it. The palm tree necklace was popular last year, and is still flying [B]pandora beads[/B] off the shelves today. There truly is something appealing about this shining sterling silver and cubic zirconia necklace with its intricate palm tree design. Of course, we're all aware that [B]tiffany[/B] the palm tree necklace that Kate wears in the movie is the real Tiffany & Co. version, which is made of diamonds, but unless you [U][B]tiffany co[/U][/B] are also a multi-millionaire like Kate, you probably will also stick to the inspired [U]tiffany london][/U] version.

On top of various forms of palm tree jewelry, I have [U]pandora jewellery[/U] found a bevvy of starfish, seahorse, and turquoise and coral-colored jewelry in the many boutiques and shops that Siesta [U]tiffany rings][/U] Key boasts. Look for two-tone starfish jewelry as a big hit this spring and summer, as well [U][B]pandora[/U][/B] as the Tiffany Inspired Anchor Necklaces, which is another fan-favorite. It also incorporates a [B]pandora[/B] sterling silver and cubic zirconia design that is nautical and airy for the [B]tiffany earrings[/B] warmer weather.

Another ring that I get numerous compliments [B][URL=http://www.pandorajewellery.uk.com]pandora uk[/URL][/B] on is an oxidized silver ring that I wear that has a big round cultured freshwater pearl at its center. The oxidized [U][B]tiffany jewellery[/U][/B] silver and pearl blends classiness with art-nouveau for a modern look that is truly [U][B]pandora jewellery[/U][/B] unique and sure to catch some attention.

When we buy something, we are always [B][URL=http://www.pandoraforyou.com]pandora jewelry[/URL][/B] thinking that it had better never become devaluated. The one piece that never loses [U][B]tiffany co[/U][/B] its value is always what people want most. Sometimes, the one [B]pandora bracelets[/B] piece would raise its price [U][B]tiffany necklaces[/U][/B] with the rise of money. Here is recommended the pieces that [B]pandora bangles[/B] would always be treasured - Tiffany. The watches, bags, bracelets, necklaces. There will always be a classical piece in all the categories [U]pandora[/U] of Tiffany.

First comes to the tank watches which [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany[/URL][/B] are the favorite of a lot of people around the world. Of course, just like other [B]tiffany jewelry[/B] kinds of watches, Tiffany watches have both man and woman [U][B]pandora jewelry[/U][/B] style. No matter what kind of style [U]tiffany engagement rings[/U] or color it is, the tank watch always has its classical features. The tank watch is called one [U][B]pandora necklaces[/U][/B] of the very important objects in the world.

The watches have the [B]pandora necklaces[/B] unique shape and "favored by all" watch bands. The mixture shape of geometry [B][URL=http://www.etiffanystore.com]tiffany rings[/URL][/B] and art gives the tank watch its lasting value. Women with the [U]tiffany charms[/U] watches look more professional and modern [U]tiffany[/U] while men with the watch seem more [U]pandora bracelets[/U] approachable.


Besides the Tiffany bracelets and bags, something [U]pandora bangles[/U] else from Tiffany is also among the piece to be treasured, from rings to bracelets, from necklaces to [B]tiffany charms[/B] brooches. Some of them might be relatively cheap while some [U][B]pandora jewellery[/U][/B] of them might be expensive. However, all of them are worth treasuring since [U][B]tiffany jewelry[/U][/B] they would never devaluate as a classical [B]pandora bracelets[/B] piece.
