Well, I’m no “12-mile-Jenny” but I’m feeling pretty good about my fitness progress to date. I’ve stopped obsessing over the movement (or lack of) on the scales and have finally just embraced that as long as I continue to exercise and eat healthy that the number on the scale really doesn’t matter. Right? It doesn’t matter, right? Yeah, still working on convincing myself.

But – my update… I’m continue to work out with Sgt Chip once a week, I’ve lost 15 pounds (at last weigh in, but since I’m not weighing anymore it could be more…and then again, it could be less…) and gone down 3 dress sizes. I’m now running (heh – Me – A Runner – would have NEVER dreamed that in a million years) 4 to 5 days a week and actually starting to enjoy it – the tunes on the iPod help out a lot with that – there is just something about songs like Alive by POD, and John Reuben’s Up And At ‘em that just make me actually want to run.

But the best part about all of this fitness stuff: I feel so much better – and that, not the number on the scale, is the most important thing. Right? Right.

    Right… I’ve not lost a pound since my new “career” at half-marathoning, but I’ve lost a size :)

    Ummm… “Boom” by POD is another great running song too…

    Hi Michele! You and your girls have been on my heart this week.
    I knew you had a blog (but I never bookmarked it) so I did a quick Google search and it wasn’t too hard to find you. I miss you and I miss hearing about your precious girls. I just wanted to stop by to say hello. I know you’re busy but if you ever get a free minute (yeah right) email me.
