NSV Time

Time for a linkup.  At first I didn't know if I would be able to come up with anything.  It's been a rough week. But I dug deep!


For 135 days, I have logged my food and exercise on MyFitnessPal. I haven't done everything perfectly, but I continue to trudge along.  

I got my prize from EveryMove's Fitcation contest that I won last month.  I got a Body Media (aka Body Bugg) like they use on The Biggest Loser, a t-shirt, an aluminum water bottle, a gift card for a pair of running shoes and a night in a fancy hotel.  The last two items are from Seattle.  But the shoe store mailed out a pair of shoes to me today (after we talked about what I've been wearing and my feet issues.)  The hotel stay is going to be a wedding present.

I got new workout clothes from Mother's Day.  You can see a pretty model picture of the purple shirt at the Old Navy site.  But here's what it looks like on me.  I got three pieces.  The purple shirt is a compression tank top with a built in bra.  (Not nearly enough bra for me.)  The peach shirt is just a regular tank. In both pictures, I'm wearing compression pants.  Apparently I have very thin lower calves.  They are bagging around the ankles!

Some thoughts to remind me that I need to keep going.  I will not give up!


  1. That looks like some awesome stuff you got! I hope your new shoes work out well for you!

  2. You are looking mighty good there Julie.
    Keep up the fantastic work that you are doing.

    Many hugs
