I must admit I have not done well with running lately but I have walked on the treadmill consistantly.  DH and I started a half marathon training schedule right before the bad weather set in.  I never thought I would say I missed being able to exercise outside but I am missing it. 

I have lost last year's Christmas photos!  While searching for them I came across this photo taken at Glorietta October 2009:
And then this photo taken at Glorietta October 2011:

The first photo while in Glorietta we drove everywhere, went to Santa Fe (and ate at Olive Garden) shopping during our free time and ate what we wanted in the cafeteria.

The second photo we parked and walked everywhere and walked extra during our free time (hills).  We brought healthy snacks and ate as healthy as we could in the cafeteria after walking there and walked to chapel after.

I needed to find these photos.  I am within 3 pounds of my average weight, 5 pounds from my lowest weight but that's still 30 pounds from where I wanted to be at this point. 

Mind games:  I made a deal with myself while on the treadmill this morning.  Christmas movies are killing me!  I sit too much and watch way to many movies during this time of the year.  So... as of today if I want to watch a movie I will walk an extra mile on the treadmill and drink an additional bottle of water. 

Previously in my dieting career I would of never actually written these things down much less shared it with anyone...I have progressed in this area as well...I am counting these things as leaps and bounds NOT baby steps!

It seems we have all gone MIA in blog world and I am are you doing?
