kc~soda was my biggest weakness too and I never could get off them completely, but I've started having bladder problems any time I drink a soda so that's enough to make me quit cold turkey.
So I checked online and found out heads only weigh around 8-12 lbs. I don't know why I thought it would weigh a lot more
I'm in! I'm training for a half marathon and trying to lose another 15ish pounds. Woo!

I 'gave up" soda in January, and by gave up, I mean I might let myself have one 1-2 times a month. But it has been very hard lately, I think because it is warm and I don't want coffee anymore. Instead I want a nice cold coke. I actually had 2 in one day the other day because it was SOOO hot in my classroom and the cokes were nice and cold. lol. But I am going to try to hold out without having one at least the rest of the year.
This time with weight loss I am trying not to fall into the trap of eating processed junk. It is so easy to reach for a Crystal Light over a glass of 100% fruit juice with soda water mixed in, or a fiber one bar over a bowl of oatmeal, because the processed stuff has fewer calories. But it has more crap in it that I just don't want to eat anymore. Sometimes eating quality food means having to eat a little less.
Here's my issue.
I bike about 100-140 miles a week. Fast.
But only because I do it on my way to and from work.
In the summer, I don't really have anywhere to ride to, so I don't ride that much.
Need to fix that. Somehow.
So are we doing pictures or no pictures?

My final day of work is Tuesday, so at that point I really intend to get to business...these last few days haven't been horrible considering all of the cakes and treats and reasons to celebrate! My goals are:
1) To sleep eight hours each night (I normally get five).
2) To use our at-home "gym" five days per week for interval workouts.
3) To drink more water (I only drink water, but I can go until late afternoon before drinking a drop!)
4) To improve my diet. I won't even get into my issues there.
5) To wear a particular pair of jeans by August 1st.
And then I shall consider my next round of goals...

So far so good. I went to the gym today and completed my second day of my "running training" (I'm so out of shape this is actually a pre-running training before I can even get to the actual running training schedule).
Then, I lifted weights afterward. Feel SO good to have gotten that done.
1) strengthen my legs and butt muscles.
2) I love how toned my arms look, but I want to get them just a bit more toned, then I'll be 100% happy.
3) lose my pooch.
So, how are you guys doing so far?
I'm still doing Crossfit twice a week, although I'm hoping to do more workouts on my own during the week once school is out. I'm also hoping to improve my eating-I'm still failing miserably at eating healthier. Grrrr.
But I'm getting much, much stronger. I've spent all weekend working on Sprout inventory. I went to move this really heavy wood dining table in the Sprout garage so I could put up some shelving. But I was lazy and didn't want to take the 900 pounds of books, fish tanks, breakable scales and other fragile, yet heavy items off the top. As I was scooting it over to it's new location, one of the legs fell off and everything began to slide.... But I was able to lift the table up while squatting down and using my leg to grab the rogue appendage. Five seconds later it was reattached. I then used my Hulk strength to empty the table before moving it again. I was also able to impress the heck out of a janitor yesterday with my book box lifting abilities, and I emptied the cargo van in about 10 minutes-woot!!
I have been walking most evenings and now hubby and I are biking 6-10 miles a few evenings a week. I am requiring that he make me stick to that so we'll see how it goes. I may try a little running this summer and I am looking for a yoga class.

Sounds great, girls!

Uh oh, I skipped the last two days of working out at the gym. I'm definitely going tomorrow!
I skipped yesterday, but I am planning on biking again tomorrow...I mean today. I think that was my subconscience.
I had a great workout yesterday.
-I ran for 20 minutes
-lifted weights for 20 minutes
-swam for 20 minutes
We've had ballgames in the evenings and I've been taxi-ing kids around during the day so I've missed the last two days. I will exercise today after family pictures this afternoon (if it doesn't rain).

Well, my Summer hasn't started yet but I'd like to join your little "club". I seem to be stalled with my shape-up efforts but by the end of the month I should have more time to really focus on doing better. I just found out that my cousin is getting married this coming Fall so I'm hoping to be able to fit into a stunning dress! In the next month or so I think I will start trying on dresses to get myself more motivated, especially in the exercise department.
I went to the gym once this past week. I need to get back into the routine of going every day. All of a sudden, I can't drink sodas without getting a horrible bladder infection so I've given up sodas cold turkey b/c the pain just isn't worth it! So hopefully with that out of the way I can lose a few pounds.
I didn't lose as much as I wanted to these last couple wks. I've got to when I weigh in next wk!
It is do hot here already that I am hitting up the wii on a regular basis. Minus 25 pounds, here I come!
