Hello! I wanted to come by and invite you to stop over at the Mothers and More team and set up your 3 personal goals for the week - it's not too late! There’s no better way to reach them than with the support and encouragement of a team of people that want to see you succeed!
Remember to stay true to your goals!! Riqui

first response to your message about being back here for the millionth time. You don't fail, until you quit trying!!!!
I'm thinking of attempting a 5K this summer. Roberts has one during their festival that I'm thinking of trying. I've learned that I'm a fair-weather runner. The weater has to be just right, with very little wind & if the land is flat, all the better! :) At my in-laws, I ran an entire 3.8 miles and felt pretty good about it. Then I got home, mapped out 3.6 miles and had to walk a good portion of it!
But, I'm here to be what you need me to be!! Good luck with the running. I actually liked it better than I thought I would! It still isn't my favorite form of exercise (being all of the things that have to align for me to do it outside! :) )
Things here are busy busy busy! I'm up 11 lbs from my lowest weight and it seems like no matter how hard I try to eat well and get workouts in, I can't get the scale to budge. So then I start thinking what the He** is the point to work this hard and maintain at an "overweight" BMI??? So frustrated, but aren't we all??
