Beautiful day in the neighborhood.

Another beautiful day here, wow, so happy to have such nice weather this time of the year! I did a run today. I am working on increasing my speed a bit. Slowly getting there. I am hoping to do a 10K in the spring in about an hour or less.

Keep em coming!

Well Jaimee and I made it to Curves again yesterday. It has been great lately, I have had a couple other people ask me if I had lost weight. Nice that all this hard work is paying off! another pound gone so I'm at 21!

Good day

You know I never really know what to write here. It is my personal log of my activity but what do I say, I went to Curves again (with Jaimee of course). What else can I say?

What a beautiful day!

I wasn't going to run today but it was such a gorgeous sunny fall day how could I not! I did my run in 36 minutes, slightly faster than I used to.

Did you notice in my sidebar that I officially hit the 20 pound mark! I am so happy and I feel so good! Halfway there. I hope to lose another 5 pounds by end of November and then hold it at that through the winter months (you know, terrible weather will make it hard to get out and run and Christmas). We'll see how it goes.

Another Curves

Jaimee and I went to Curves today. I was a little tired and just couldn't push myself so I had a 'easy' workout. That's ok. I am still happy I went.

Not much to say

Not much to say except that Jaimee and I went to Curves today. Also today someone who didn't know I had lost weight asked me if I had. Felt good, at least it is starting to be noticable to others! With my body type I can gain a lot without people noticing too much, but of course it means I have to lose a lot before they notice too!

A Good run!

I didn't post on Thursday but I did run. I am one of the Cross Country Coaches at our school and although I can't make the Tuesday practices I go on Thursdays. We go on about a 2.5km run with the kids, short for me but that is ok, it still gets me out.

I ran today for about 35 minutes, I hadn't done a long run since last Sunday's 8K run (still happy about that one!). It was a beautiful sunny day so I had a great run today. I actually didn't want to go, I am fighting the 'unmotivation' that hits me sometimes. Now with the weather starting to change to more dreary days I am finding it easier to not go. However, I stepped on the scale again today finally and I am down another pound (19 total!!!) so that was my motivation to keep going!

So happy to be down 19 pounds, had a great run and now off to do some fun scrapping!

Yay Curves

I was so tired after work and I had to go for my blood tests. If I was doing Curves by myself I would not have gone. But since I go with Jaimee I went and it felt good! I'm glad I went.

Running Club tomorrow.

A Great Run!!!

Well I did the 8K this morning! The weather was cool but beautiful. I am so happy with my results. My goal was to run the whole thing and not walk so I did not push myself. As it turned out I was not tired at the end of it so I could have pushed harder. Not only that, but I had hoped to finish in about an hour well unofficially it was about 50 minutes! Now I am kicking myself for not pushing a bit. I was just worried I would push and then have to walk. Oh well I am very happy and now I have something to work towards for next year!

Not a good poster!

I have not been keeping up with my posting here! Yesterday I did a run as I am one of the Cross Country Coaches for our school. Of course it was a short run for me, but that is ok I am getting ready for my 8K on Sunday. Looking forward to that.

Jaimee and I didn't go to Curves today. I told her I don't want to take any chances with my knee (it has been hurting a bit). Once the run is over, a little pain won't slow me down, her and I will then be going 3 times/ week - well that is the plan anyways!

I won't run tomorrow. Jason and I are heading to Victoria (can't wait to go to Lululemon). We are spending the night at my brother's then going in the run on Sunday. Hope all goes well. I know I will finish, just hoping to run the whole way and finish in around 1 hour.

Went again

Jaimee and I went to Curves again. I forgot my knee brace so I took it easy on the leg machines but worked hard on the arm ones!

Good for Jaimee

I was a little late getting home yesterday so Jaimee phoned me to see if I was coming! She is really enjoying Curves and she is good for me, she is keeping me going! We had a good workout yesterday.

Yep I did a run!

Well it is World Card Making Day and I managed to break away from the scraproom and do a run. It is a beautiful day here and I have my 8K run next weekend so I figured I better go! I'm glad I did, now I feel rejuvinated and want to tackle more challenges on WCMD!
