Who Are We and Why Are We Headed for Shamrock?

We met online in 2005 trying to--what else--lose weight. We've had our ups and downs along the way, but we're not where we want to be. This is our journey to get fit and healthy. We invite you to follow us as we "exercise" our way across the country--track our progress on the map to Shamrock below-- in an effort to each lose 50 pounds by the end of 2009 and adopt a healthier lifestyle along the road.

Where will we go once we reach our goals? The sky's the limit... but we're thinking Greece would be nice.

Introducing Betty Lou's evil twin!

You are not going to believe this Betty Lou! But in keeping with our long tradition of unknowingly mirroring each other's lives, I too have a popcorn story. But mine IS mindless eating, sadly. And it's caramel corn, no less. But hey, I ate half a bowl instead of the whole thing. Progress.

I am not going to blog my food today. I honestly don't remember much about today's food. It was a "grab what you can when you can" kind of day and I made some good and some bad choices. I will be able to finish my water here in a bit. I only have 1 miles worth of steps for the day (never did get to exercise). But I did have sauteed veggies and chicken INSTEAD of maple syrup on toast (a major comfort food of mine). So again, progress.

I give myself a B- for today overall. It's been rough since I have SO much to catch up on after the holidays....too many outings to my parents' house with family from out of town and not enough time at home doing all the projects I'd hoped I would have time to tackle over the holidays. But here I am, with a huge "to do" list and not enough time to do it.

Monday's gonna land on me like a ton o' bricks.

  1. Hey, veggies and chicken beat movie popcorn any day! And why am I'm not surprised about the twin popcorn challenges??
