   I apologize to those who have asked me where I’ve been the last couple of weeks.  Blame it on my facebook addiction.  Everytime I come near the computer to update my blog, my fingers seem to steer me to facebook instead.  Then after checking friend updates, playing Mafia Wars, reading my notifications, etc.  I realize a couple of hours have passed.  Oh well.  I will try to do better!

    Not much to post recently, which is another reason I have neglected to worry overmuch about blog posting.  I have been eating well, exercising when time permits (which during softball season is NOT as often as I did during the winter months), but oddly enough, I am either tightening up or maintaining.  Part of that may be due to the fact that I visited my doctor who confirmed that my thyroid is indeed acting up again (I wondered why dieting and 1-2 hours of exercising daily was having no effect!).  She put me back on my thyroid medication, and once again my efforts are being rewarded.

    Other than that, as I said earlier,  I have recently acquired Jillian’s (of the Biggest Loser fame) workout dvd entitled, “30 Day Shred”.  My oh my.  Even avid exercisers will be challenged by this one.  I first thought, a twenty minute workout????  Big deal.  Well, after day one, I was begging for mercy.  (See the dvd description two posts ago).  I am now at only Level 2, and it still kicks my butt.  Of course, you are supposed to do it everyday and you will advance throught the levels quicker, but I also enjoy things like power yoga and just weight days, so it’s taking me longer.

    So there it is–not much happening in Denise World.  One kudo for myself though….I am now within 3 1/2 pounds of my goal.  And believe it or not, my fourteen year old daughter only weighs 7 pounds less than me!!!  Stay tuned….hopefully by this summer and opening our pool I will be brave enough to post that bikini picture.
