How did your August days add up?


  1. So tell us! What did you decide to do??? I'm sure whatever you decided, you made the right decision for you and your family. Awesome streak--keep it going!!

  2. Awesome! Way to go girl!!! Your an inspiration! Mind if I borrow and post something similar on my blog? Won't be near as impressive, but I love the idea :0)!!!

  3. Pretty awesome month! Every once in a while I forget about your streak, and then you post what day you are on and my jaw drops. Incredible!!!!!!

  4. I want to know what the final decision is!!

    Also, I can't eat those pretzels. I can't stand the aftertaste.

  5. I think January is going to be a great month for me. I've had to stop running because my pregnancy has made it difficult to continue. But workout wise. August was a pretty good month. Can't wait to get back into the swing of things after this labor day break.

  6. You rock! Those pretzels get looked at in the store but I can't take them home with me because I dont stop once I open the bag. mmm :)

  7. great month!

    i miss having kids young enough to watch veggie tales. :-)

  8. and the decision is?

    what saucony's are you running in? i just got the pro grids and am loving them.

    i wish i liked pretzels...but I guess it is good that I don't because it would be one more thing to try to not eat.

  9. Those pretzels look YUMMY!!! What kind of treadmill did you get? I'm looking to get one and if anyone knows a good one, you would!
