Pushing Harder

Today has been really productive. I got a lot done and it feels good. I got 20 boxes packed to move over to the new house tomorrow morning. I also did some household chores and got all my laundry done. I got on the treadmill this morning and finally pushed myself to do more than the usual 20 mins. I walked 34 mins. today!! That may not sound like a big deal to some people, but it is HUGE to me. I am so challenged in the exercise department, lol. I really want to get better at it. Where's Jillian Michaels when you need her?

I want to say thank you to the new followers on my blog, and the people that have been commenting. It's so awesome to have this circle of people around me, cheering me on to my goal. A special thanks to Jack Sh*t for the comment he left on my last post. I love it when he comments...he always makes me laugh out loud and that is so needed. I should stop taking things so seriously and make light of things more often. It makes the world a happier place. :)

Stephanie from Muslim Mama commented on my post as well....I added her to my blogroll. Time to spread some more love. Please pop over and read her last 2 posts. She is in the same place I was 7 weeks ago, wondering if I had it in me to really do it this time...to really get this weight off for good. Well....we're all here to tell her that she can!! Without a doubt!! Check out her blog, say hello and offer her some encouraging words. Let her know she's not alone in this battle against Obesity...that we're all part of the same army and we will slay the beast together!!

I've got a busy day tomorrow so I'm going to turn in. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Keep watching those calories and keep those buns moving!! :)

  1. Hi, Tammy! Thanks for checking on me. And congrats on getting in more time on the treadmill. I totally understand what an accomplishment that is!!

    You are so sweet to spread the love. I love that about you.

    Drink plenty of water while doing all that moving!

  2. Well done on the exercise - yay!

    And good luck with the move tomorrow - that will burn more calories, I am sure.

  3. Great post Tammy, and thank you for your kinds words on my blog.

    You sound like you have a lot going on, with the house move. Thats a real stress builder.
    Well done on the 34 minutes on the treadmill. It shows self discipline. That is something I have to start relying on and I am not good at it. Now my DH and I are back at work, it have to do the exercise one my own for three days and thats my downfall.




  4. Love your quote today. Even tho I'm overweight, I forget my strength sometimes and that I'm capable of carrying what gets dished out. Really enjoying reading your blog.

  5. Hi Tammy. Just found your blog via Zaa's. I have to say that what you said about family and loved ones being the ones to hurt us the most (in a comment to Zaa), you are so true. I'm looking so forward to reading your blog.

  6. I hope your move goes well! Congratulations on the exercise. You are doing so well!

  7. 34 minutes is a BIG deal!! Good for you!
    And good luck with the move, sounds as if you are making great progress.
    I love the way you are always there to reach out to someone who seems as if they need that extra hand! And for keeping everyone in the loop.
    I have discovered some really great people along the way, due in large part to you and your thoughtfulness Tammy, so thank you!!

  8. 34 minutes is great! Sounds like you're really building your endurance up. :-D

  9. Hi Tammy--you really had me in tears last night sweetie. It was so kind of you to mention me on your blog. It really makes me feel like I have some support and I'm not alone in all of this. Thank you so much. You are such an inspiration.
