Club 8

So...some of my Disney friends are doing something called Club 8. Club 8 is for people that want to lose weight and get healthy. I signed up in January. And lost...about 4 pounds. I am up to 14 pounds lost for my goal of 20 to stay in the Poly in March. The BEGINNING of March. So I HAVE to lose 6 more to go the distance!!

And...in going the distance, I will also be walking the half marathon (fast walking, some jogging) in March, too.

But I have been sick. Really sick. For almost 2 whole weeks. But I am well...better at least. And I am hitting it again tomorrow. Not hard. Maybe a mile. Or two. But I have got to get back in it! I have 13.1 miles to train for! And I refuse to give up...refuse to give in! I can do it!!!

My goals>>>>>
This week> One short workout for 1-2 miles. One medium workout for 4 miles and one workout for 6 - yep SIX miles.

Because I have only 3 more weekends after that to hit 8, 9 and 10!!! I was going to try to taper before the real event, but I have heard the walkers really don't have to and I need as much confidence as possible going in to the big race.

Thanks for following me. Thank for the support.

I really appreciate all of your comments about the unfortunate situation the last few days. I feel very supported and I know Amber does too. :) Thank you all!

You know...It has been a hard night.

I spend a lot of my time giving to other people. That is just who I am. I enjoy it. I am not married, no kids...so my passion in life is to help people. And I think I do that?

I have a few outlets for this - church, being a CNA, and a couple of internet forums.

But in the past few weeks I have been so disappointed with the responses of a precious few people as I strive to help people. The one that stung the most happened just tonight.

I have had things stolen from me...serious things and funny things. Someone stole my car once and it was filled with a bunch of stuff I really miss - like my first Bible and first softball glove.

But tonight someone stole me. Someone stole my name and impersonated me. They pretended they were me. And posted something on the internet - in my name - that was quite hurtful to a dear friend. I am so very thankful that this person was secure enough in our friendship to ask me about it - so very thankful. I am thankful that tonight as she hopefully sleeps - she knows I did not say those hurtful things. But I am sitting here awake and wondering what I did to someone to make them think that they would even get by with using my name and saying something so mean?? As far as I know I have never posted a mean thing on anyone's blog - ever.


I guess I am just putting you guys on notice...I am Maroo. But as of this very moment - NO POSTS will be from me unless I am officially logged on to my blogspot. So...if you don't see my crazy surfing picture beside a comment labeled "Maroo" - it may not be me. :(

What a sad world we live in.
