Shannan: Week 19

Dear Scale,

I just want to let you know that you can suck it! You are so mean to me. Why is it that every time I step on you the numbers seem to keep rising? WTF? What did I ever do to you?

Sure I've indulged in a few "heavy" meals lately but that's not my fault! I blame our fore fathers (and my Hub's and mother's yummy cooking) for creating the traditions of family dinners on Thanksgiving and Christmas!

And yes, I've had some candy (OK, a lot of candy), but again, that is not my fault either. Someone put a TON of it in my stocking. I had to eat it so the kids wouldn't. I was only trying to be a good parent!

It's the Holidays. Isn't this supposed to be the time for "goodwill toward men," and all that crap? I don't know why you have some sort of vendetta out against me but I would appreciate it if you would knock it off.


Sincerely,
Shannan "I need to get my ass back on my diet ASAP" Boyer

Funny, I had that same conversation with my scale.

Hello Ladies,
I've been checking the blog since hearing about it from my friend Katy. I enjoyed learning about the Couch to 5K program & have decided to give running a try also. I've started week one and have finished one run so far.

I found this link where you can download weekly podcasts that follow the program. Thought I'd share it with everyone!

I hate my scale. I feel like he is out to get me!
