8 weeks out

Every time I get on here to write a post (or read yours) I suddenly feel too overwhelmed to say much.  I figured that I better at least do a little update.  Things are going really well.  I am still planning on competing Oct. 13th (just under 8 weeks out).  I feel like I am on schedule and I am loving the program I have been using.  Lots of sprints which surprisingly, I am loving.  Back to lifting weights which I missed terribly through my last prep when all I did was cardio.  Last I checked I was down 10 lbs, I am not sure where I am at now.  Probably about the same.  I haven't noticed a big difference in the way my clothes fit.  They are a little looser but nothing crazy.  I would like to be down another 7 lbs by show day.  I have plenty of time lets just see if my body cooperates!  Yesterday I turned 29 again (hee hee) and it was a nice relaxing day at home with my loves.  Instead of cake we had some Sugar free, fat free pudding with a little fruit (and some whip cream of course).  It was perfect. A cheat without the guilt of a cheat.  I was surprised that no one complained about the missing birthday cake!

Last weekend I flew out to my old stomping grounds. My husband was in Southern California for two weeks for work, so during the weekend I flew out and we got to spend the entire weekend together... just us... NO KIDS... and guess what???  We didn't kill each other. In fact it was absolutely amazing.  We had the BEST time just being together.  I didn't want to leave.  I also got to see some of my old friends, and step foot in my old gym.  I miss it there.

Work has been great, home has been great, kids start school next week (which will be great!!!) and things are just... well... great!!!!  I will put some progress pics up soon. I wanted to do them at the even weeks out but haven't really been on top of things. I will start at 7 and post pics as I feel necessary!
