Where to start? I can't believe that it's been 4 months since my last post!
Let's start in February. Our friends got married in the mountains and it was a great weekend away.

A few days later, we went on a fantastic vacation to Maui HAWAII! Carson & I spent 10 glorious days in Maui. I was feeling pretty sick with the flu and got down to ??? maybe 195 while in Hawaii. Dehydrated and feeling very skinny! Then I got feeling better and found a great deal on chocolate covered macadamian nuts ;( probably a good few lbs on those) I did quite a bit of walking and snorkelling - made decent food choices for being on holidays.
Enjoying a wonderful meal at sunset at Whalers Village
Snorkelling in Molokini
We rented a boat and found a pod of wild Dolphins!
Wow what an amazing experience!
My favorite past time - swimming with the turtles!
Rock Climbing with the Junior Forest Warden's ( this is the kids' small wall)
did the big one - and made it to the top - so much easier
than it was 60 lbs ago!
May came along and I found myself in Vancouver with the challenge of my first
HALF MARATHON! I did well with my training - my fastest time was 2 hr 22 min to do 21.1 km
My goal was to do the race in under 2:15
The night before the race I stubbed my toe in the restraunt - ugh
So I wrapped it up and stuffed it in my shoe!
My time was 2 hours 10 min 49 sec! FANTASTIC - I was so proud.
The race was relatively easy! There was a 200 m hill at Stanley Park at mile 8
you could tell those who had not done the hill training - most were walking up the hill
I followed my training plan - 10 min run and 1 min walk - even up the HILL!
It was tough but - I CAN DO IT! The training at Fitness Ridge helped
The mountain class, the treading class - dig deeper and try harder!
Awesome feeling at the finish line!
Can't wait to hold the marathon metal next!
If you don't set your goals high - you won't know how far you can climb!
Even with the a successful race under my belt and my first triathalon around the corner - I feel like I am drowning! I have gained 7 lbs and am having touble getting it off. Consuming the devil's Diet Coke again, which goes hand in hand with chips, chocolate & ice cream. I feel out of control and my fat cells have expanded and I feel like I've gained a whole lot more than 7 lbs!
How does one from feeling like the girl on the right - to the girl on the left in a matter of a few short months?
One day at a time - I am still down 62 lbs and I"m not throwing in the towel by any means!
The choice is mine - time to re-evaluate my goals, rewards
and make a U Turn!
I am off to Las Vegas with Carson the end of May. I am looking forward to going back to Utah to
conquer that STOP SIGN! I want to see how fast I can do it now!
And take Carson up some amazing hikes in Snow Creek Canyon!
Have an awesome week!
