Happy Mother's Day to all, including those who don't have kids but take care of pets!

I won't post the hilarious clip JT and Andy did on SNL last night because it might offend some people, but this SNL clip is definitely PG. At least they mentioned Kiefer (if you get this by email, I don't think the video shows up, you might want to come to the site to see this):

I did 5.32 miles for a combined 1269 calories burned yesterday. If that doesn't erase the french fries and ice cream I had on Friday night, nothing will.

According to the Gabriel Method, I'm supposed to be embracing myself and not restricting what I eat, but I can't do that. According to that philosophy, until I'm able to do that, the weight will be a struggle to come off. Yet I know if I don't restrict what I eat, I will gain all the pounds I fought so hard to lose. So I am in a quandary.

Mr Listener wanted me to come down and keep him company last night. I said no.

Max heart rate: 140
Workout mode: FAT BURN, HR 135 @ 2.6 mph

Note: I knew this would just be the warm-up as I wanted to do 5 miles so I took it easy.

Life Fitness Treadmill
Standing heart rate: 85
AVERAGE heart rate: 132
Max heart rate: 140
Workout mode: MANUAL, 4.0 incline @ 2.6 mph
Calories: 567 Distance: 2.67 Time: 65:00

Note: Really reached down inside myself to stay and do another hour. Found it mentally, but not physically, hard. When I was done, I felt good that I did it, but also a little lonely. When I try to tell Mr Listener numbers about my accomplishments, he doesn't get it and doesn't seem impressed. All I know is, THAT'S not being supportive.

Yay for saying no to Mr.L. You can't always have what you want dude!

That's a very impressive work out. Girl, you rock. I don't need to tell you this but I thought I'd put it out there :D

I am so proud of you. For everything. The workout, Mr L, everything. You are a strong beautiful woman. Continue to focus on yourself, and love yourself. The weight will come off, and a wonderful man is out there for you. You are too special not to have all the great things in life. I just know it.

P.S I saw the Red Sox game on Espn last night. Watched that exciting win/ last strikeout and thought of you! Like the Sox, keep fighting. You are and will be a winner!

I almost wet my pants watching JT & Andy. Wow! Horribly offensive and yet still so hilarious!

Your workout summaries always inspire me. I wish I had your motivation!

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
