You look great Paige! Can I say that without sounding like a creepy old man? Great job to you, too Tanya! I haven't run a 4 mile race in 20+ years. For someone who isn't really a "runner", you put up a great time.

Finished the "Lower Body" 10 minute trainer workout about 30 minutes ago. Legs always feel like jelly after that one. It's paying off, though. My calves, thighs and especially the muscles over the shins (Daughter reminds me that they are the "anterior tibialus" muscles - she had anatomy last semester) all have great definition and are solid. Having strong legs and core will go a LONG way toward making the umpiring this year easier. By game three of a tournament, when you can barely stand, it's tough to get into your down stance for the pitch. Getting them stronger now will make those later games more manageable.

Not my official weigh in day today but....

40 pounds lost as of this morning. That's right, the scale put me below 250 as of this morning. Of course, we'll see how the rest of the week goes for my official weigh-in date this weekend.

i'm not gonna lie, I think that looks gross! LOL, I am SO not a veggie person. How do you find it tastes? I mean, is it very obvious that you're drinking veggies? I cannot stand the taste of them, and feel like I'd have to mix in something else to aid the taste.

our blender is broken, so I need a new one, but was thinking about maybe adding some veggies to a smoothie but still using fruits, for the taste LOL...

Thank ladies! It's certainly nice to feel like I'm making progress. I figure I put down the 6 year old I've been carrying around. Or 2 bowling balls, or whatever you want to equate to that much weight.

As for today, I finished two workouts: Cardio this afternoon and lower body this evening (while working back stage at the dress rehearsal for the high school presentation of South Pacific in between). Heart monitor puts me at 450 calories burned between the two workouts. I'll take it.

Lol it looks a lot worse than it is.
I HATE veggies. Hate them. I can force down spinach, MAYBE some baby tomatoes but that's seriously IT unless it's very well hidden in pasta sauce or something

That said, I don't mind the taste of the juice. I mean, it's no milk shake but it's A LOT better than I thought it would be. I don't mind drinking it.

Personally I just use a straw and I'm all done in like 10 seconds. Hardly taste a thing really, I just suck it down.

For taste I sometimes add pineapple or green apples or some carrot but honestly, even without it just tastes like..green stuff.. I dunno but it's not BAD. Certainly better than eating them ever was.

Honestly, give it a shot. Use a straw and really..it's not as bad as you think it's gonna be. I found EATING veggies 10000000 times worse.

Upside? It's really good for you,your daily serving of veggies in one go, plus it keeps me so full and I actually have ENERGY all day. No more 1 PM hunger pains or "I need to take a nap" feelings at 2 o'clock. It seems to just kind of even me out really well.

People argue with me all the time about the upsides of actually eating veggies (which no doubt there are) but frankly, I'm not going to do it, the idea of chewing and swallowing as many veggies as I'm ingesting now makes me want to hurl. So this is a great solution for me.
