What a great start to the challenge. I really needed this little kick in the butt to get back in gear. Thank you, thank you, thank you to my team the Queens of the D&D! It was a huge help to me to have a team out there depending on me.

I am really excited. This is a great start and I really needed to get back on track. I was slowly slipping the wrong way on the scale and hating it. My lowest weight was around 170 and I would love to get back there. This is a great kick off to that goal. I am so pumped. I have gotten back to my c25K training, week 5 day 2, 8 minutes runs, OMG! What scares me more than that is a 20 minute run by the end of the week. But I did meet a huge goal this week already, I ran/walked 3 miles Monday. It felt great, and it happened kinda by accident. I got on the treadmill to do my c25k and when I was done with the intervals, I felt so good I wanted to add another one, the next thing I knew I had hit 3 miles. I know that it isn't good to go beyond the training guidelines and I won't push the envelope that far again, but I think for my personal moral I needed to show myself that I could do it. To get beyond the fear. It was a very empowering experience. I find myself actually getting almost excited to do a run now. I mean there is still that little bit of dread that oh gosh I am going to sweat and smell bad and be tired, but the feeling of accomplishment when I am done is awesome.
I have also started backing my lunch and snacks for work so that I can be sure to have something good for me, or at least not fast food, and I can track things much better when I take time to measure. Thank goodness for summer and fresh veggies too. I was just complaining to my sister on Sunday that I wished I had planted a garden this year cause the cucumbers are coming in and I hate to buy them when if I had planted them I would have more than I could stand right about now. Wouldn't you know it if I didn't get a bag from Kris' grandma and then today I got some more from a friend of mine. Yeah!!
So how was yuor week?! do tell! And make sure to check out how the rest of the sisterhood did.
