What's new?

Once again it's been awhile since I updated on the blog.  Nothing to spectacular to report.  Life has been good.  I participated in a Dietbet and succeeded by .2 pounds.  I bet $35 and won $45.88 so it was pretty nice to win.  I decided to join another one so that it would help keep me on track and the first week I wasn't really committed and now it has been two weeks and I am only down 2 pounds.  I need to lose 7.5 to make my bet.  We shall see.  Oh and my current weight is about 186.

My husband and I joined the gym on 4/13/13.  The one we joined hadn't even opened yet, but opened on 4/20/13 and we have been going 3 times a week.  We went today and took a body pump class and boy did it give quite the workout.   I am sure I will be feeling over the next few days.

We went shopping last night while waiting for my new glasses to be ready and I bought one shirt.  My husband had gotten me a gift card for a store called Torrid not realizing that my weight loss would soon make it impossible to buy anything from the store.  The smallest clothes they have seem to be to big for me now.  I could probably still buy pants there for now.  I managed to find one lace tank top in size 0 of the plus sizes.  It's a nice problem to have (not being able to buy clothes in that store anymore) but I still have about $36 to spend there.

I have another 5k set up for 6/1 and then an obstacle course 5k on 8/17.  I am not really improving any on the running front, but it good cardio for me.  Now that I have the gym I can focus on the weights and toning portion.  There is also a pool, sauna and steam room there so that is a great bonus.

Our next camping trip is scheduled for Memorial Day weekend.  We are taking our camper to my parents house and spending the weekend there.  It should be fun.  We are also trying to take a camping/driving vacation up the coast of California in June.  Maybe go to see Hearst Caslte, Winchester house, Redwood forest and maybe see the husbands sisters family in Oregon.

I guess that is about all for now.
