Still losing...not much more to go

I weighed myself this morning, and to my delight, I am down to 139, which puts me back on track. I now have 9 pounds to go for my goal. When I reach my goal, I will be at the weight I was when I went to basic training at age 17. I do, however, still need to get back on the exercise track. I fizzled last week and didn't work out as much as I should have, but with the weight loss still progressing, I am motivated to get right to it!!

I wanted to share a simple recipe that I use from time to time. It probably isn't new, but I whipped it up myself one day while playing around with ingredients so I don't have exact measurements. It's pretty yummy and curbs my hunger in the mornings for breakfast or as a snack during the day.

Banana-Strawberry Soymilk Shake

1 banana-cut up
2 large (Frozen or fresh) strawberries-cut up
About a quarter cup of low fat vanilla yogurt
Enough vanilla soy milk to cover it all up in a cup (or the consistency that you like it)

Mix with hang mixer until blended. Enjoy!

I also have set a goal to run a 5K within the next year. It is actually on my "Things to do before I am 40" list and I am working towards the Shamrock Run in Watertown in March 2008. I want to start off slow and work my way up. With enough perseverance, I will make it!
