OMG, I missed out on soooooooooooooo much of this thread today!!!
Amy - Your tip is sooooo right, I pack my gym bag and bring it to work on a lot of days. Even on my most tired days when my students have worn me thin, if I put on those clothes and my sneakers I am immediately energized.
Katherine and Beth - I am no longer on any kind of BC because of the horrible side effects I had. I always felt sick and I gained weight too. I am so happy to be off of it.
Renee - I hope you get your allergy figured out. I bet it is just the Oil of Olay. Still, no fun to deal with.
Gail - Congrats on the weight loss!!! I have not been on the scale in almost 2 weeks. I am a little scared to look at the reading.
I am also skipping the gym today. I seriously can barely walk from my workout with my trainer yesterday. We did all lower body lifting and I am SORE SORE SORE. I figure I will take tonight off and do some time on the eliptical tomorrow. (btw -- the eliptical is one of my favs as well for good cardio!)KEEP UP THE AWESOME WORK LADIES!!!!
