Accountability is where it's at!  I had forgotten the power of allowing people into your lives at many various levels.  Awareness set in AGAIN that if I want to see the numbers budge on that scale I'm going to have to get real and be aware of my food choices, my activity level and my thought patterns.  Here are some of the things I've done to increase/establish great accountability:
  1.   I've logged back onto My Fitness Pal and I've added some friends. 
  2.   I joined a rewards group at Walgreens that gives points for fitness goals.
  3.   I'm going to start blogging here again REGULARLY. 
  4.   I'm helping my daughter keep a food journal for her and we've set a goal for the both of us. 
  5.  We are trying to get onto Wii Fit Plus daily. 
This week I am hoping to make a trip to a supplement store and get the entire family on Vitamin D and pick up some multi-vitamins for the family.  I've set a goal and I want to share it publicly (so you can hold me accountable).  I weighed 177 today and by May 31st I would like to be 165.  I know that is PUSHING it, but it's a goal AND if Nathan says that we have the funds I'm hoping to sign up for my first half marathon in July.  Our pastors are running and I would like to be a part of this race (it's for a good cause). 

Have a great weekend blog friends.  I think there is gonna be some sun again I've GOT to get outside of this house.

In Case You Wanted to Know

Do you remember months ago when I posted that I was gifted with $199 as an incentive to get below 200 pounds?

I'm not sure I posted what I bought with that money.  I want to share you.  I spent the last $20 this week. 

1.  A dress and jacket were purchased for my 100 pound party (which I didn't get to have...YET)
 They were in a size 14/16 and the first dress I've purchased in a decade or longer.

2.  2 pairs of shoes (heels)

3.  A pair of jeans (size 14)

4.  A coffee date for me and a friend

5. Two new bras

6.  Paid registration for myself and Mandy Dunham to run the Valentine's 5K (this was her 1st race)

So...thank you to whomever blessed me.  It was truly a miracle and I pray you are pleased with my purchases.
