**Days 271 & 272**

Yesterday we were gone most of the day celebrating my daughter's 11th birthday - we left at 9am, and didn't get home until almost 6pm, and I was wiped out, so I skipped exercising.  Yes, I should have forced myself to do it, but I didn't.  However, I did keep my eating under control throughout the day, so I was happy about that!  Today, I did not fail, at all!!  I drank 96 ounces of water, I consumed just over 1200 calories, I did a 30 min. walk/run on my treadmill, and I did Level 1 of the 30 DS.  I've, basically, sucked at the 30 DS challenge this month, but I'm not giving up.  I'm going to start back up with it - something is better than nothing, right?

Yesterday was a reminder that I have to keep going, and not give up, because I'm still not able to do all the things I want to do with my family.  We took our daughters ice skating, but I didn't feel comfortable trying to skate at almost 220 pounds.  I felt like I would snap an ankle or something, so, like I've done so many times, I sat on the sidelines, and watched my family have fun without me.  It sucked, but only I can make outings like that a better experience.  I will go ice skating with my family before this year is over - yes, I will!


  1. That's a good attitude to end the post with. Definitely use that experience as motivation to make sure you're the one having fun next time.

  2. You have a great attitude. Stick with that 30DS! I find that consistency is key with it - the more days you skip, the harder it is.
