Thats all Folks!

I've been thinking about this for a while...
I started blogging about two and half years ago.  I made some great friends and learned a lot along the way.  Got tons of support and was a cheerleader for many bloggers.
Its just not the same now.  I no longer wake up excited to share my life.  In fact, its become quite boring. Not much has changed here - I'm still working on myself, trying to loose that last 30lbs, and living life.  
I'll check in from time to time, but for now I'll say a quick adios.  
I'm happy to email - just drop a comment below and I'll respond as long as you are not coming through as a no-reply@blogger.

Getting the lap band saved my life and help me to lose over 65 pounds.  I only wish I had done it sooner.

My last words of wisdom - find some form of exercise you love to do and do it daily - you will not succeed without that piece of the puzzle.  Also there will come a time when you test your band and start feeling like you have come very far and why not indulge in something you haven't had in a while.   I beg you to wait...wait until goal when you can manage "cheat" foods... Just get there first and then experiment. And build a support system.

You won't regret it - get out there and live!

TTT on Friday

1.  Post Vacation blah has set in....booo

2.  I had another one of those dreams - relating to my friend.  I'm trying not to flip out too much or tell them too much about it but I did let them know that everything will be fine yesterday after they had a minor scare....they are surrounded by love and they need to know that.  These dreams are freaky, and I don't know if I'm helping or not by telling people about them.  

3. Halloween - I had the sugar

4. Back in the Saddle today.  Mo said he is getting up early to make me breakfast...we'll see. Its almost 7 and I have to leave for work at far no movement from the bedroom

5.  Miss Lorie gets married tomorrow!!  Woo hoo!  So Happy for her - bummed I couldn't make the wedding but I'll get to visit in June.

6.  Mo is working on his first commissioned painting - its coming out great - I'm really proud of him

7.  Eddie dog is lame...not sure what happened but he is gimping about and if it doesn't get better over the weekend, he'll have to go to the vet - fooey

8.  Random - when we flew out to Utah - I noticed from the air the farm fields are they are square...anyone know why?  I guess I could go to the google..

9.  Looking forward to running and starting training for the Yellowstone Half - I'm giving my ankle another day or so of rest first...that epic vacation didn't do it any favors...

10.  Went for my first night ride of the season two nights ago - solo in the woods- perfection and bliss.
