Our Adventure for the next six months!!! CHEER US ON!!!

June is Here!!!!  I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by!!!  I have BIG PLANS for the rest of the year!!!  The unthinkable happened t me on May 31st!!  I GOT SICK!!!!!  I kept working (I won’t do THAT again) but my workouts TOOK A HIT!!!  I have not been able to workout this week.  As a result, I gained 2 pounds!  If I don’t MOVE, I don’t LOSE!!!  I’m not too concerned because I’ve already lost the 2 pounds (I jump on the scale from time to time).  I have 3 Days to KICK IT DOUBLE TIME before Wednesday weigh in!!  Something really exciting happened to me!  I decided to partner up with @kthenb and apply to become the next DYNAMIC DUO      “Two Scoops” Hosted by @Skinny_Scoopers.  Guess what?!?  WE WERE CHOSEN!!!  We will document our weight loss by blogging our weigh-ins every Wednesday and tracking our progress via BodyBuggs!!  Our BodyBuggs should be here by Tuesday and we have a conference call set up for Tuesday with Kim from BodyBugg.  We will also be doing a podcast with them.  Details still to come!!  @kthenb and I are in the process of getting BRAND NEW BLOG HOMES thanks to @nomorebacon This will happen before Wednesday!!  I will let you know the new addresses!  I’m thinking a good 50 pounds should come off during this challenge!!  I’m going to give it 110%!!! We’ll see!! 😉

 I spent most of the weekend in bed (Doctors orders) But many of my Tweethearts were out there MAKING IT HAPPEN!!!  My dear friend @dailykat ran her first 5K as did @jeepjenn.  @bekkib73 ran her 2nd 10K.  My Half Marathoners were @thefitlounge , The ladies of @ShrinkingJeans @reallifeadv @christieo, @LissaJoy @MommyMo, @girlsworld, @mama_sass, @karenaVNV.  My Friends @JenInRL, @MizFitOnline, and @IAmSucceeding met up with friends to participate in Weight Watchers Walk it!  @Nadeen walked for Chrohn’s Disease!! And My HotAss Friend @MrsFatAss made it to #Gruve E Green as she “Gets Her Groove Back”  My Dear friend (and coach) Lori launched her new site @DareToBecome There is also a WONDERFUL GIVEAWAY TO ENTER

“THE FINISH LINE”

What a WONDERFUL Valentine/MyrtleBeach5K/Girls Roadtrip/Tweet-up weekend!!!!  It started after work Thursday night 2/11/10.  Monica, Jessica, Betty (Cheerleader along for the ride) and I hit the road around 8:30 PM!  We had a 9 hour drive ahead of us.  We were ALL happy to be getting away for a little bit!!  I was EXTRA EXCITED because I was going to meet Eddie (@damanlovett), Joey (@PassionMD), CarolAnn (@ctreacy), and (@FabMissK) for the first time!!!  We had some audio books.  I had my Podcasts (@MizFitOnline @Dietgirl @TwoFitChicks… Yes I listen to them more than once…DOESNT EVERYBODY?!?)  The dive was filled with LOTS OF JOYOUS LAUGHTER AND GIRL TALK!!!  We arrived in Myrtle Beach just in time to see the sunrise from our hotel room!!

We ate some breakfast, took showers, and went to bed!!!  We needed to catch a little shut eye before we went to the expo to pick up our Race Numbers and other goodies!!!  About 4 hours into the nap…my brother called!  He and his wife denise (@sunnyd4) had already been to the expo and gotten their numbers.  They arrived in Myrtle Beach on Thursday (From knoxville, TN) They wanted to go over the marathon route (Denise was going to be running her first marathon on Saturday)  Joey also called and said they were going to be heading over to the expo around 1!  We started getting ready and made our way to the Expo!  

  

I knew that behind those walls….My friends were waiting to meet me for the first time!!!!!!   I was soooooooo excited!!!!!!  Let me just tell you….. I walked into the convention center filled with tons of people…and then heard…”MO” It was Eddie, Joey, and Kat running up to me from the left!!!  The warm tight hugs felt…LIKE HOME!!!!! Ahhhhhhhh…….

Once we left the Expo, we met up for a late lunch!! I had a blast getting to know Eddie, Joey, and Carol Ann!!!  

  

  

We went back to the room , got changed, and took a little nap!  We planned to meet at 6:30PM to warm up.  The race started at 7!  Well…. Long story short, we had the wrong address and arrived at the starting line around 6:59!!!  No stretching….No warm up…Just racing!!  Btw….I DONT RECOMMEND THAT!!! :-/  I promised people I would take it easy and I did!!!  I planned to walk the entire race (Knee injury) but I did run a 3rd of  the race.  Monica decided to stay by my side and make sure I was ok!! (She’s the best).  While we were running…she was able to catch some action shots!!!  Oh…I forgot to mention…IT STARTED TO SNOW AT EXACTLY 7:00!!! Brrrrrr……  

  

 It was hard, long, and COLD… But WE MADE IT!!!! (DETERMINATION)  

  

The above picture was taken by my sister-in-law Denise (@sunnyd4).  She drove around and snapped pictures and cheered me on at EVERY MILE MARKER!!!!  I was looking forward to returning the favor the next morning while she was running her 1st marathon BUT it was cancelled due to the snow!!! 😦  After the race…we went home to shower and change.  We ate a wonderful mexican restaurant.  Once we left, we tried to find Joey’s Beach house but the snow was making the travel unsafe for us Floridians!!  We headed back to the hotel.  We managed to take some pictures to take back to Florida to share with the family and friends!!

Then it was time to warm up a little bit in the heated pool and the lazy river…..My Knees were pleased!!! LOL  

  

Once we checked out of the hotel on Saturday, we drove the marathon route to cheer on the dedicated runners that ran the race (unofficially) It was TRULY INSPIRATIONAL!!!  We worked up an appetite with all that cheering so we stopped for some brunch!!  

Pecan and Banana Pancakes (Shared By 3)

 

 After brunch, we met up with my brother, Denise, Eddie, Joey, and Carol Ann at the mall.  We shopped for Valentine gifts, Laughed, shared, BONDED!!!!  My first 5K was physically, pretty painful BUT I wouldn’t have changed the experience FOR ANYTHING!!!!  My Family was by my side AND I made some REALLY GREAT FRIENDS!!! Cant wait until my next FITNESS/TWITTER Adventure!!!!  My Goal this year is to meet ALL OF MY FAVORITE TWEETHEARTS!!!  My #FabFattieCruise I met @FabFattieShan, @KyraTX, and @JeepJenn.  My #MyrtleBeach5K I met @Damanlovett @PassionMD and @ctreacy (Family/Friends that participated with me @QtHouseOfBeauty @Jessimika28 @Elisa_Hola @KenpoDoc4: My Brother and his wife @sunnyd4)… NEXT STOP….#Fitbloggin     “I Got A Feelin” ;-))
