Weight: 190 – Pounds left to lose: 30

Back down to an even 190 this week. Some people commented on how fast I blew through the 190’s, so you obviously jinxed me from reaching the 180’s. I’m sure it had nothing to do with all the muffins I ate last weekend. Nothing at all.

I am now officially signed up for Turbo Cardio Kickboxing. It starts next month, which gives me plenty of time to collect some boxes to kick. I still have some cardboard boxes leftover from my move, though the closest I came to kicking them was when I stubbed my toe on a box of books. Ouch!

The kickboxing class is part of a community education program and I find it fun just to read the catalog and think of all the things I could become. They offer blacksmithing! I could cast my own dumbbells! And there’s belly dancing, so after I take blacksmithing I can make my own finger cymbals.

You always makes me laugh PQ! You’re doing so well as always – such an inspiration to me and so many others. Keep us up to date on how that blacksmithing class goes :).

I just began reading your blog a few weeks ago and I LOVE IT! I have gone back and red all the archives and I must say you are an amazing woman!

You have been a real inspiration to me. When I am feeling like diving head first into a pan of brownies, I can come and read a few of your entries and voila!- the urge is gone! (that and I also gave up that Dr. Pepper smack so my cravings are so much less!)

Thanks so much for sharing your journey.

Yes – Blacksmithing! Do they carry glass blowing by any chance? (great for oxygenation)? Have you considered a sewing class? Or maybe meditation?

The world is there for each of us to discover. . .

Oh yes and the 180s will happen. . . trust me

I’m a class junkie myself. I love learning new things. Belly dancing AND blacksmithing, how fun.

Jinxed! ha! I bet you’ll be in the 180’s by next week! ;)

Thank you for your inspiration! I just wanted to share that I found some good advice, support and recipes on healthybalance.com. Also, there are health calculators on there that are very informative.

Wail till you start kickboxing – you’ll not only be in the 180’s, but you’ll be amazed at how it reshapes your butt and hips and legs in just a few weeks. Stick with it through the initial pain, and you’ll be wondering why you didn’t try it sooner.
