Great news - very busy day!

Lots happening today!
1.  I signed up for a boot camp on the beach beginning this Friday for 6 weeks (2x per week)
2.  I attending a running club seminar and spent $149 for personal coaching to prepare me for a half marathon in 12 weeks: 9/4 (one of my goals this year is to complete a half marathon).
3.  I can tell I'm coming out of my mixed emotions.  I felt much better overall today and am finding some clarity in my feelings and confusion.  And its good - good as in I feel like I'm part of my own family again - not wanting to be distant from my spouse.
4.  I ran 30 minutes straight today!  That's a first
5.  At about 5:30pm today, the French company made an offer!  Its actually more money (shocker), 3 weeks vacation (instead of the 2 I expected), and I don't start until 7/11 which gives me a full month left for me to be off (bonus!)!

The scale is still reading 189.5 and with exercise, I only netted about 700 calories today.  My knee is bothering me a bit, so I think I'm going to not work out tomorrow and let my knee heal.  I've done a great job with water, calories, exercise.  Hopefully the boot camp and running club is going to kick start the scale.  I know I will have to increase my calorie intake with increased running program, but I still want to try to net no more than 1000 cals after exercise so I'm still losing.

I'm definitely fitting into 14's - so I'm seeing changes in my body even though I don't see it on the scale.  But GOSH, I want that scale to move down INTO the 180's!!!!  C'mon - just 10 more pounds!!!!!!!  Will I be a size 12 in 10 lbs? I can't even imagine!!!!
