A day of mixed emotions

Some days you wake up not knowing how you should feel.

Today is one of those days.

Six years ago today, around 1 or 2 in the afternoon, I received a phone call that changed my life forever.

My sister Amy had passed away.

So I usually feel decent about my cardio abilities — at least when it comes to walking or riding my bike. Last night I decided I’d try 5 to 10 minutes of jumping rope to get some exercise going.

Let me just say — I am out of shape — and I have no rhythm.

I was super winded when I finished and I was unable to jump rope more than 24 times in a row. There was a lot of restarting and getting to 10-15 before the rope hit my head or one of my feet. Geeze.

But I’ll keep pushing on. Maybe I’ll get up to 26 jumps in a row before all this is over!

Don’t look happy about it but I lost 3.6 lbs this week. Good for a week I spose, so far I’ve been working on watching what I’m eating — need to add some activity in there somewhere.

So, here are the stats.

This week — 3.6 lbs

Net weight loss since starting the challenge with Thomas on Oct. 10, 2008 — 2.8 lbs.

It’s all in how you look at it

re: Cowboys loss yesterday:

Fire Wade. Cut Romo and Witten. Redesign the cheerleaders’ outfits. Blow the whole thing up. Start over.
