Wow another run

It has been awhile since I did a run 2 days in a row! Felt good. Now I have to get ready as I have to go work at the school for awhile.

No Mojo???

Can you have no mojo for exercise? I have not had a lot of mojo for scrapping lately each card or layout has been a long process and not always rewarding. So today I ran and I went on my 5K rather than my 6K run as it just felt mojoless. KWIM? I just got bored and couldn't go on. But at least I went. I am slowly inching my way to the 25 pound mark. I was at a workshop yesterday and one of my old principals that I team taught with a few years ago asked me if I was shrinking? It is nice that people are noticing. I have averaged about 5 pounds per month since July 1st when I set out on this journey. My road seemed so daunting and so far away but each pound I have lost has been that spark to keep me on the right track. I am now aiming at about 16 more pounds. But now I am taking it 5 pounds at a time. Perhaps my initial goal is not that realistic. Yes I did weigh it at one time but that was before kids and such. Perhaps that weight is not really a healthy one for me now. I will see as I get closer. But for now I am still aiming for another 16 pound loss by next spring or summer.

Finally ran again

Oh the weather outside is frightful.... Literally our weather has been horrible here. Torrential rain. I mean I won't mind running in a light rain but when it is torrential with huge wind gusts no way! So the rain and wind stopped today so I finally went out for a run. Felt good to get some fresh air again. I missed a couple of days from work as I was sick, but the fresh air was good. Jaimee and I are still trying to get to Curves regularly too. I am down about 22 pounds, won't get to the 25 by the end of November but that is ok. I have not been able to exercise as much as I wanted to.

Wow, how lucky!

We have the day off today for Remembrance Day. I woke up to pouring rain but hoped to do a run. Well the rain broke and I managed to get a run in! Yay!

A Break in the Rain

Well, we had a break in the rain today (it is that time of year) so I went out for a run. It was a bit of a hard run, I had a cramp from the beginning and I forgot to put the orthotics in my runners. So I shortened my run, and ran 5K instead of 6. Glad I went. I am sure the rain is going to come again!

Lots of running!

I started out on a run yesterday, but about 18 minutes into it, my mom was driving by on her way to my house so my run was cut short. Oh well, at least I got out.

Today Jaimee and I were supposed to go to Curves but she phoned me to say she did a 'big workout' in PE and was tired. Was ok with me since we had a X Country running practice afterschool today so I did about a 3K run anyways.
