Your long lost friend

Pin It I know it's been a long since I have posted here - other than being away, I really have no excuses.  My aim is to get back into posting on a regular basis.  While I was away I did a hand-written blog (in the olden days they called it a journal or a diary ;-) and am, quite frankly, too lazy to re-type all the entries here, so I will just say that it was a good trip, but I am glad to be home!

I am back on WW and was thrilled to discover on Saturday morning that I had lost 6.8lbs since before I went to SE Asia!!  My total loss now is 69.6...so close to the 70lb mark I can taste it (but how many points would it be??) :-)  Tonight was my frist day back at water aerobics and I'm glad I went.  The hardest part really IS getting myself out the door and into the car (yes, I should walk there, but they were forecasting rain and thunderstorms!).  I have also begun learning to run with my training (I run, she stands beside the treadmill).  I am planning (hoping/praying) to run part of the CIBC Run for the Cure on Sunday, October 3rd in support of Breast Cancer Research.  I have walked it a few years, but this year I want to run at least part of it (what I call a run is likely a slow jog to anyone serious about running!)  Anyone wanting to sponsor me (yes, I'm shameless when it comes to fundraising for this very worthy cause!!!!) can click HERE to do so online, or contact me for other methods of donating.

Well, I'm off to get my crockpot meal ready to turn on before work tomorrow.  I'm making one of Shondi's recipes - Cuban Style Pork and Sweet Potato Slow Cooker Stew (she didn't make it up, it's from the WW site, but she has tried it!)

Happy Tuesday everyone!!
