This one is for Liza and an update on the 30 for 30!

It's FRIDAY!!!! Finally!!!

So, Liza had asked a question about "what's C&P". Well, several months ago, when I had just started to explore the blog world and really get into this WONDERFUL blogging community, I had stumbled upon JustJil's Blog - which I LOVE! Anyway, she had shared a story about a co-worker and the co-worker said something incredibly questionable. Jil's post made me want to own up to the idea of being a C&P girl and really embrace it - even though it was meant to discount those who choose surgery. I am with Jil - it's tough, it's a difficult process, it's SO much more difficult than others think. Here's a link to the blog http://justjil.wordpress.com/2008/11/21/i-am-only-a-paper-girl-living-in-a-paper-world/- you should read it, if you get a chance. Jil is AMAZING! Just like so many of my other blog friends! So, Liza, in just a few short days, you'll be a C & P girl too!!!! We're definitely going to have to arrange a party!!!!! I would LOVE to actually meet you all!

Now, on to business! I've successfully completed 3 days of incorporating at least 30 minutes of exercise into my day! It's been a little tough, due to recent stress and emotion, but it feels good to be sticking to it in spite of the drama! I only made it to the gym once (day 1), but Wednesday I did a little Hip Hop abs (which was a riot), and last night I pulled out the old Tae Bo video! I had actually missed that! Now, I don't typically dedicate time to working out on the weekends but I will be doing that over this 30 day period. So, I'm certain some trips to the park, the roller rink, and the golf course are in order! :-) I'm going to complete this challenge if it kills me (which it won't because it's good for me! Thanks Laurie, for the inspiration! You're doing GREAT too!!!!

I'm looking forward to a good weekend. There is a lot that needs to be accomplished and I'm going to try to keep it all in perspective. My life is going to take on some serious changes that I'm not so sure that I'm ready for, but it will be good in the long run - so I hope. I'm sure I'll be venting about it soon enough! Until then, I hope all is well and I look forward to catching up with everyone soon (work has been crazy which really cuts into my blog reading)!

Now I feel like I NEED to know what's happening with you... poor thing - life happens and sometimes gets in the way of our weight loss journey - so I'm proud of you for doing the 30x30 while going through whatever changes are coming your way...

Keep on trucking along! I just finished day 4 and it feels GREAT! :)

Thank you Heather!! I actually had a feeling that is what C&P meant, but it was interesting to read the story behind it. I hate that people can be so cruel sometimes.....URGH!!!

However, congrats on how well you are doing on your 30X30!!! It is very inspring for someone like me that hates exercise :)

Good luck with whatever you have coming up in your life and we are always here to listen. HUGS!

Here's to the C&P girls and the C&Ps in waiting! I, personally, find us to be an interesting bunch of characters!
Way to go with the exercise, Heather!

Thanks for the clarification, and the introduction to Jil. I just passed through, and enjoy her.

Thanks again!

I'm going to have to get on Miss Jil for not writing much lately... we all miss her!

Congrats on keeping up with the challenge even though life is giving you other challenges.. It's going to be a rough week for me as well, but I can do it and so can you! :)

Hope you're doing well! If you need to vent, feel free to email me! :)
