Back - Sort Of

Well, I have been MIA for a few weeks as I was on a little trip to the States for a wedding. I enjoyed my time in the States with family and friends and actually was there for a little longer than expected, due to the death of my grandmother. The Lord gave grace and I was able to rejoice over the life and example of my dear Granny as well as rejoice and congratulate my younger sister on her wedding day.

All that said, I did not lose any inches or pounds during my trip :( The truth is, I just didn't exercise at all, though I stuck to my eating plan. On the bright side, I didn't gain any weight or inches, so I will just pick up where I left off.

My sisters talked me into picking up the 30 Day Shred DVD, so I think my workout is about to get kicked up a notch or two - Ha!!! One of my sisters has gone on record as ¨daring¨ me to do this workout start to finish in the 30 day time period. Guess that means it has to happen huh?

My family were SSOOO surprised to see me when I stepped off the plane, so that was a great feeling. You see, they have only seen me at a size 12 or 14 (blush) for the past six years or so. I wore a very lovely sz. 8 dress to the wedding and felt wonderful because sz. 8's fit comfortably now without any sucking in or strange contortions to make it happen :) My next goal is to wear a 6 and since I have never been any smaller than that, hmmm, it might take a miracle. I am counting on Jillian and the gang-Ha!

Well, enough of my rambles. I should probably do my week as a belated Nix the Fix. Not for points, mind you, but just 'cause I need that little shove it always gives me to get headed in the right direction!

I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother, but it was good that you got to be there.

You will love Jillian (well maybe hate her at first) when you start seeing results.

Let's keep springing!
