A bad picture but still, 184.8…So 185 for the 1st day of Allan's Phase 5. I can handle that.


Today I went shopping, getting ready for all the goodness we need to eat. Here’s just a portion of what I got.



Mike pulled me behind the sled again today. Boy after skiing yesterday and the muscle used to stay upright this afternoon my legs are sure tired.


Wilbur came with us today too. Though the snow was so hard for him to run after us so he hitched a ride back to the house.


This is what it looks like when I’m up…


Down but I can now get up on my own, without any help.


My boy, my playmate, my protector, my friend.

Hey a NSV today, the jacket I’m wearing, it’s Mike. Last year I couldn’t of even begun to zip or snap it up.

A portion of our 180 acres.


Tomorrow I’ll head to the gym and do all three of the triathlon parts. I’m hoping to get 3 miles on the treadmill at a jog/run, 7 miles on the bike and at least 10 laps. Both Mike and I are off tomorrow, Mike got his tax refund so heading to Best Buy to see if he can get a flat screen TV.

In-between my exercise plan I will be incorporating Allan’s also. I also have a new disc from a daycare mama called T-Tap. Suppose to be good for the core muscles and tummy. I said that February was going to be the month to move my butt (and the rest of me too) so am going to give it all my best.

I hope you all the best of luck on your life style change journey’s. It’s not easy, not one little bit, but in the end oh so worth it all.

Take care my friends and have a blessed week.

Ooh the food looks great especially after the week I've had. All the playing in the snow looks like so much fun.

Best of luck with all the exercise tomorrow. You're having a great February.

You are one active lady! And I love your haul. I've become addicted to lovely produce and can go shop-happy in no time in the fruits and veggies section of the supermarket. You know you're eating better when your shopping cart is full of colorful REAL FOOD and very little packaged stuff, right? :D

Off to the challenge!
