I have two posts today, aren't the four of you that read my blog so lucky! First I want to update on the weight loss working out etc... I got so frustrated last week, I wanted to make that scale move so badly and it would not budge! I felt like just giving up throwing in the towel and going back to eating whatever the heck I wanted because what difference did it make! Can I just say how glad I am to have reconnected with so many old friends on facebook, because when I vented my frustrations so many of you rallied to cheer me on. I cannot thank you enough! I have no idea what I have done for God to bless me so much with such encouragement but thank goodness He did! I had set a small goal for myself last week, I wanted to get under a mark I had not been under in awhile, and I only had to lose 1lb to do it, I think that is where some of frustration came from! But as of yesterday morning I hit that goal and then some, Thank you Lord! So, for those of you that posted encouragement and told me to keep going, I cannot thank you enough!

Okay, Couch to 5K workout, started Week 2 yesterday, oh my, it was hard, I had to slow it down before the full 90 seconds a couple of times. Hoping it gets easier as the week goes on, but if I am still having trouble on day 3 I will be staying on week 2 for another week. Still walking on the treadmill on off days, but just walking no running. I am also doing the Biggest Loser Boot Camp workout on those days. As of right now I am not taking any days off, hoping I can change that as I progress, but right now I need the exercise. OH, and I also found a way to satisfy my chocolate craving with cookies! Gonna share the recipe here because it was really good, and my kids ate the fire out the cookies so it is not just my opinion! Thanks again for all the encouragement!!

Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 box yellow cake mix
1 15 oz can of pumkin
1 cup chocolate chip

Mix all ingrediants together and drop by the tablespoon, on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray, bake at 375 degrees for 18 mins or until golden brown!

I was really afraid you were going to really taste pumpkin in these but I honestly couldn't tell at all, I am taking them to church pot luck Wednesday so we will see, how that goes over, LOL!

Next post coming soon!
