Ran My First 10 km!

It's been another fantastic week.  I am down another pound.
4 more until I am finally under that 200 lb mark.
 I think when I see 199 I will have to retire my scale for a few weeks -as seeing that number go back over 200 (as my weight fluctuates a few lbs a week even when losing) would do a big mental game.

My successes this week were: 
 I ran 10.6 km in 1 hour and 14 minutes.
 I only walked 2x for a short distance.
My goal is to do a half marathon in the spring and a marathon next fall.

I had a physical yesterday and I need to get my blood work done yet,
but my BP has gone from 140 / 90 last year to 120 / 80 this year!
 I guess I won't need to use that referral to the blood pressure clinic
 that I sort of ignored last year!

My bootcamp classes are going well! I am making them
"more challenging"
enjoying the challenges myself and am amazed that
I can actually keep up with myself!

We went into the city to get some family photos done.
They turned out not so bad considering that the
kids were acting up quite a bit!
(Which is why it's been so long since we've ha
d family pics done!)

My Wonderful Family

A look back at our first family photo 2001

As I sat and looked through the pictures at the store - I hardly recognized myself.
 It's kind of weird. Everyone else sees you - but you don't look at yourself too often. 
 I am very pleased with the progress that I am making.
 It is slow and I certainly could be working harder, but .... slow and steady wins the race!
 More importantly I am just living and going about my week 
 making healthier choices with food and fitness part of my life
and not obsessing about anything and it feels great!

I need to make a plan to get those last 4 lbs off in the next 3 weeks
as I have my bikini packed in my suit case
for a well deserved 5 day get away to
Cabo San Lucas Mexico!

Have an awesome week - If you haven't yet gotten off the couch
and started thinking about what you are
putting into your mouth and why
What are you waiting for?

  1. Congratulations on running your first 10K! I ran my first 10K on Oct. 16 in exactly the same time as you. Had a goal of 1:10 but ended up with hip pain around mile 4. You are looking great! Keep up the good work.
