I ♥ Purple Trainers!

My new Nike Lunar Trainers in purple. 6/15/2011
After seeing my sister-in-law in these shoes I just had to have them.
LUV the color, and they were on sale!
They are for running and cross training.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there!

Malek started off his morning with a cappuccino, it was my first attempt making one and I must say it turned out pretty darn good!  After he opened up his gifts (all sports stuff - VB net, badminton set, running shirts, mp3 player) we met up with the rest of the Malek/Barney clan for lunch at the Salt Lick in Driftwood.  We made sure to get there by 11am to avoid the huge wait, and I'm so glad we did because it was super busy!  We stuffed ourselves with the all you can eat option, took some family pictures, and came home and crashed.  Happy Father's day to my wonderful hubby!

BLC Update

Biggest Loser Challenge (BLC) Update:

I'm happy to say that I've been consistent with my workouts, making it to the gym 4x's a week.  I wish I could say the same thing about my diet.  I manage to eat healthy for 1.5 days before breaking down and eating junk food.  :(  Nursing helps burn calories but also has me jonesin' for chocolate and cookies (FAIL!).  I'm going to have to cowboy up and get serious about what I'm eating if I want to lose weight.  ~SIGH~

Biggest Loser Challenge

Today my organization at work started the Biggest Loser 11 week challenge.  Weight loss is based on the percentage of weight lost, not actual pounds.  My goal is a 5% weight loss (trying to be realistic here).  This is good incentive for me to get back into my workout regime!  I haven't really put much effort into working out as of late...granted I had my baby 7 weeks ago, but I was cleared by the Dr for exercise 2 weeks ago.  :^/  Now I have some competitive motivation to put my running shoes back on and hit that pavement!  Not to mention I'd really like to wear my cute bikini's again at the pool.....

The nurse at work is keeping track of our weight loss to keep us all honest.  :Þ  Let the pain fun begin!
