Peeps Against the World!!

I am not even close to were I will be some day but today I feel strong! I feel like I have it all together. Ok, it might just be the adrenaline and endorphins talking from my workout an hour ago, but I feel strong. When I go to the gym and push myself farther then I have in a long time it gives me hope. When I get 826 calories burned in 45 mins I feel that I will not fail. When I eat right all day then have a great dinner, I feel like I can fight this battle forever.
...again it could just be the endorphins.
When I do what I am supposed to do in my head I can take on the world and bake a cake at the same time. ( a low fat sugar free cake of course )
I don't know were this is all going except that I feel good.
I saw today that over 80lbs was lost in the first week of the suddenly spring challenge...Wow! I am so proud of everyone! Careful though I am going to catch up now that I am back in full swing.

School starts next week so I am going to have to really push myself not to slack on my eating and time at the gym. I will have class on T/Th from 5-7:30pm and W from 5-10pm (not looking forward to those days. I am taking a math and psychology course. There are 8 week classes. Pray for me everyone I am going to need all the help I can get! I am thinking I will have to move my workout schedule to as follows: Mondays and Fridays at 3:30pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8pm and then Saturday whenever I make it out of bed. In between there I will have to work and do homework as well. Not sure how this will all work out yet but I am going to try. Also I have to prepare all my meals the day before so I am eating good for me food and staying within my calories. I don't know how all you guys with kids do this! Your all modern day super women.

I haven't been commenting to much on peoples blogs lately and I feel like I am losing touch with my peeps! ( anyone else love those marshmallowy sugar coated birds as much as I do?)
I will do my best to stay in touch with everyone over the next couple of weeks. Please bare with me. I love you all like long lost family!!!

Well ta ta for now.


  1. It is too bad we cannot feel that power before we actually get up to exercise eh? Good for you for getting out and doing it!

    I HATE Peeps :)..I d like peanut butter eggs though and jelly beans.

    I didn't get a chance to post on your table post as I am crazy busy here in finals week. We instructors are just as swamped as students :). I cannot believe your cat managed to break the glass!


  2. Isn't it a great feeling when we are on track? I wish I could bottle it, and drink the contents when I lose focus! Good luck with your courses - I'm sure you'll do great!

  3. I'm right there with you on worrying about how my eating and exercising is going to go when my classes start back up on 3/31. UGH. Throw in my internship and I'm in panic mode. I think we just have to remember to put ourselves first and do what we need to do.

  4. I know how you feel, I'm going to school full-time, taking care of my family and trying to get in workouts whenever I can - I can't imagine if I was working full-time on top of that. :( You're not losing touch, we all go through our periods where we don't comment or read much, I'm right there with you! :)

  5. Awesome job on the workout!! I'm glad you are feeling the high of exercise. Try to holding on to the feeling of strength.

    School will be a breeze...and you are determined to beat obesity you won't slack off. You will be tired...but you won't quit.

  6. Great now I am craving Peanut butter eggs while watching peeps explode in the microwave!!!!! You are doing great on the work outs and I hope that I get that same "High" tonight!

  7. I don't think I've ever had a PEEP. They look really gross to me.

    It sounds like you have a great plan for when school starts.

  8. I've never heard of or seen peeps, not sure if we have them in Australia?
    Good going with the workouts :-) and good luck going back to school!
