Want my latest update on my running???? of course you do!!!
I'VE LOST 50 POUNDS!!! WOO HOO!!!!
I am feeling GREAT! Would like to shed at least 10 more maybe 15 to reach my personal goal. Still don't really know what is a realistic expectation so focusing on size/inches and not the scale. I am building muscle. :)
I started this journey at a size 16 and am now a size 10 but already can tell I won't be for long. :) Who knows where I'll end up!?! :) Some of the Capri pants I've been anxiously waiting to get in to are baggy after being on for a couple of hours. I haven't worn them since before I was pregnant with Jackson and I lost weight doing the modified Atkins diet. Running is WAY better than that ridiculousness! I actually ENJOY meals! :) After the race I hope to cross train a bit more and focus on toning up but I am THRILLED!!!
I've run it off. It's been hard work. I haven't always wanted to go, but when I go I never regret it. I still love running, something I never thought I would ever be able to say about myself! I remember Katy telling me when I first started that she ran it off, one foot in front of the other, one step at a time. How true! I've done just that. I really never thought I would be able to do this. I also never thought I would love running in cold weather. Who would have thought? My favorite temps to run are anywhere 40's to 60's. Anything over that and I am sweating too much to hardly enjoy myself! :) But, I never even hated the 30's, which I'm sure will be back sometime next week. :)
THANK YOU to ALL of you who have encouraged and supported me through this! I can't tell you what it has meant to know you're all pulling for me. THANK YOU KATY!!! You were my inspiration!!! Still ARE!!! This has been life changing for me!
Can't believe the race is going to be here so soon. March 22nd is not that far off! I run my first 11 this week and then my training starts to taper off so I'm in the home stretch! WOW!!!
Can you tell how big the smile is on my face???? When I get around to it I'll post a before and after shot. I know that's what you're gonna want me to do but I have to work up the courage to look through those pix again! :) Yikes!
love you blog buddies!
