Running again

Oh the weather outside is delightful!  What a beautiful day! Partly cloudy and warm.  A good day for a run on Christmas Eve day - must make room for all the upcoming food!  We are going to the inlaws tonight and then everyone is coming here tomorrow for turkey - Jason is busy prepping today!  I only did my 5K run, will get back to doing the 6K soon, just trying to fit everything in.

Plugging Away

So here it is noon and I have crafted, baked and gone on a 5K run!  Love it.  Just trying to fit everything in and get everything done before the big day.  Now I better get going on some wrapping!

Tis the season

So it was a beautiful morning here but I had to run out to do some last minute errands and shopping.  Then do a bit of baking before taking Danica over to a friends house for a gingerbread house party.  So I didn't get out for my run until later.  Well, while I was running it was trying to snow!  URGH - oh well I just did a short run, I figure that than no run at all!

Keeping on track

Well Jaimee and I only made it to the gym once last week.  Life just was too busy.  I did a run today and I am hoping to run as much as I can over the next 2 weeks that I am off.  Hoping to near the 30 pound mark by the end of the year.

Had to run

Wow I can't believe the beautiful weather we have been having!  the last couple of weeks were cold but it has warmed up, no rain, no snow just sun and cool weather!  I say I had to run because tis the season and I have been enjoying more food than I normally do along with more goodies.  So even though I only had 4 hours of sleep last night - we had my staff party here - and I really just wanted to stay cuddled up today, I had to run.  The weather is gorgeous and I think that if I start letting myself  give in to the 'don't want to' I may slip on some of those unwanted pounds that I have worked so hard to get off.  I'm glad I went though, I feel good, can get back to scrappping and all is well.

Jaimee and I have started the 'smart' program at Curves, it really pushes you! Jaimee actually broke a sweat the other day!

I am so happy I have hit the 25 pound mark!!! It feels so good. Now my goal is to be down 15 more by next spring or summer. It seems so doable now that most of the weight is off.

A Beautiful, Cold Day!

This has been quite a week. I have been sick again, missing work because of headaches, nausea, and dizziness thus haven't been to the gym much. However, yesterday Jason, Danica and I went for about a 45 minute to 1 hour hike in the forest behind us. It was beautiful. Sunny but cold. Today the weather is the same. Jason headed out for another walk with the dog but I went for a run. First time running in the cold weather but it was great. Sunny, gotta like that!
