Its been a few days (Jennifer)

Its been a few days since I have written.  We decided to go to Old Forge for a few days.  It was a last minute idea and I am glad we did.  I brought some food so I would be prepared to handle my eating.  That worked out well.  We had turkey burgers one meal, sandwiches another, eggs for breakfast, etc.  I decided that since I knew there would be ice cream involved in the trip at least once that I would exercise.  My husband told me which way to run since he knows the area and then even got in the car and DROVE it so I would know how far it was.  Its these little things that make me appreciative of him...even if I asked him to do it :)  One "lap" was .6 miles.  So I set out and with a little calculation (which surprised me that I was able to calculate anything with my music in my ears) I decided I would try for 5 laps to make it 3 miles.  And that's what I did...a 5K!  Three miles jogging at different paces(I was experimenting) and then a walk for the last lap.  Later,  I decided we should walk to town to get ice cream (its quite a hike) and then back  of course.  So off we went with the double stroller and the dog.  I deserve ice cream.  And that is a hard thing for me to grasp.  I can eat yummy foods in moderation, right?  I need to get past this guilt thing when it comes to yummy foods that I used to eat daily.  I got a small mint chip cone and was pretty happy.  And I was secretly happy that the girls needed help with their cones too :) 

We are back home now.  I added some stuff to the blog on the side.  I have asked Trish and Teresa for some pics to add on here too since the 3 of us write on here.  Send em to me ladies and I will put them up!!! It was quite an internal debate whether or not I should put the picture on the side there of me in a bathing suit.  But this is real.  This is who I am, now and before.  So, I put it up...and I am not looking back.

Looking gorgeous in your bathing suit. And you are right, we have very similar shapes. Only, I'm jealous that I think your boobs are bigger. I've lost too much of mine! :(
