It's been a while since I've posted anything. I was fortunate to get two grants to run an after school health and fitness program for girls in my school. Here's a little video that shows some of the fun we had together. Good news is that we are continuing this school year and adding a boys group as well!

Pepsi Refresh Project

I wanted to share something with you and ask for your help. I submitted a grant to the Pepsi Refresh Project to allow us to continue the girls after school health and fitness program at Symons next year and include a boys group as well. Pepsi is giving away $1,300.000 each month to fund a variety of proposals. The top ten vote getters will receive funds. You can vote once a day every day in April. To do that you need to go to: enter your e-mail address and create a password. To locate the project called "Start an after school health and fitness program for girls and boys" you need to select Health, $25,000, and then in the drop down menu either select "ideas near you" or "ideas you support" to vote for the proposal. Thanks for checking it out, spreading the word, and voting every day during April.

Frustrations, Challenges, Struggles

Not posted in a while....not much to say. I am not proud of my weight loss. Or better yet, not proud that I am not losing consistenly. Not proud that I am NOT sticking with it, not working as hard as I know I can and need to do to get where I need to go. I've been at this for almost two years. It's not getting any easier and the more I screw up and not stick with it, the harder it is to pick up the pieces and get back on track.

Don't get me wrong.....I am NOT quitting anything. I WILL get to my goal. I just need to get help from Tony, talk about what's going on, and refocus my efforts. I will do it and will post again soon to prove that I am "Sticking With It."

It's Already August!

The summer has simply flown by. It's been a GREAT one not only because I am fortunate enough to have some time off but also because I was able to spend time with my best friend Lynn in Florida and also go to Las Vegas. The bad news is that I am now out of money and am back at much for winning the Lottery and retiring!!!!!!!! Here's a few recent pictures. Chloe loved Florida and especially loved our nightly golf cart rides!

Need Some Inspriration?

Sometimes I get in the "woe is me" mode and gripe about what I have to do, how hard it is to get things done, how tired I get of dieting and exercising........ how slow it's going..........and then Tony shares this video link with Team Milan. Sort of brings things into perspective for me, makes me grateful for what I have, and appreciate the opportunities I have been given. Check out this video story. Talk about inspiration!

I Did It!

I went to Atlanta this past weekend and completed my first (but probably not last) half-marathon. It was incredibly hard but so wonderful to complete it! My body hurt the next day but it felt so good to push myself farther than I ever thought I could go. It is a beautiful city and it was a great day. Here's a picture of all of us before we began the race. As soon as I get a picture at the finish I will post that as well. Not sure what my next goal will be....gotta think about that for a while!
