I made it, I’m in the 170’s. Not since 1980 has that happened. Yep, I’m proud of me. Yep, I can see that the 160’s are just around the corner. It’s really happening I am becoming the New Me!!!

I have to brag just a little bit today. Went to work out at the gym, after falling down on the ice (no Michele I didn’t have your Yak Trax on, should of and I probably won’t have two very nice bruises) and ran…I’m calling 5.0-5.5 running…not sure about anyone else but for me it’s not a jog, for 2 straight miles. 10:18 minute mile. Less then a year ago I couldn’t go 20’ without dying. Me moving my butt, WOW!!!

I have again upped my weights also. I work out with anything from 40-110lbs. I can even do the leg press now and hold 60lbs for 45 seconds. I’m happy.

To NSV this week, I have ankles. No I have never had them, my legs always went from calves to feet. One day this week I noticed them, I also have knees, really bony ones and I have a clavicle bone that you can see. There is no fat on these things. It’s so cool!!

Okay, I have to get going. Mike gets to pick up his gun today and since I’m the only one in the family with a carry/buyers permit he needs me to go too. He is so excited which makes me so happy for him. It’s his birthday present to himself. A Walther P.22.

Take care my friends and have the most blessed and awesome weekend.

I just stumbled across your blog and started following :)

I'm also part of the challenge. That's so exciting to be into the 170's! What is your goal weight?

Also, I see that you have your mini-triathlon on your sidebar. I'm not sure if this is your idea or if you got it from someone else. I was wondering if you would mind if I did the same?

I plan to be back often to read!
