Summer summer

Who is she? you may ask. She is Selena Quintania, a famous Latino singer who was killed almost 12 years ago. Why is she on my blog? Well, yesterday I was called for jury duty (collective groan). Little known trivia @ me is that I have only served once as a juror and it was for the person accused of shooting Selena. I can remember how long ago because I went on my first date with my now husband as the trial was ending. Time does fly! Anywhoo.. I went to Jury Duty yesterday and it stunk big time. Usually I have a good attitude as I have a tremendous respect for the legal system. However, I truely had a naseau as they were calling the 12 and 4 jurors. The sick feeling was that I SO did not want to get called. I donated a full day to the court and hope it can be another 12 years before I see that envelope again!!!
We are just speeding through summer everyone. Where is the time going??
I believe in the power of thought and goals so I am writing this down and claiming it. I will be at or below 200 lbs. by August 25th. With the healthy goal of 2 lbs per week, I should have plenty of time to meet this goal. I was at 216 this morning. I can hear peoples voices in my head (friends, we all know each other so well!) and I just have to say, I may not make it, but I will be closer than I would have been with no goal at all!!!! I have worked out consistently since July 1 and that is a biggie so I feel confident. I am excited about the possbilities. Go health!!!

Interesting. I can't tell you how many times I've watched the movie about Selena. It's a heartbreaker, for sure.

And congrats on being healthy and working out. :)

You go girl. You can do whatever you set your mind to. I know you can do this.

FYI-I get the stupid jury summons at least 2 a year. So you have really lucked out going this long.
