So I signed up for a class for training for a 5K, to walk or walk/run it at my gym. I figured it was perfect timing as my first 5k is 6 weeks away and would enhance my Couch to 5k training. I got there before the class started, and saw the class waiting for the instructor. They looked about 20 yrs. older than me and more out of shape than I am. SOÖI put my ipod on and decided to see how the class shaped up. (Spy, basically). I did my own training, running in intervals and then walking. I kicked butt. AND I am so happy I didnít join the group Ė I havenít had this experience often, so I hope you donít think Iím bragging or putting these ladies down, I am proud of them for being there - but I was so above their level! Now 6 months ago I was AT their level. But I am now so above it!!! They walked the entire class, I RAN half and walked half. I am still a slow, fluffy runner, but I am a PROUD slow, fluffy runner Ė and, in the words of Forest Gump, I was RUNNING!
Now I get to cancel my registration and do something else with those $24 bucks. Maybe a new sports bra.

Recently I posted a blog about the bags of clothes that I donated to the local women's shelter as they were too big on me. Here we go again, I've gone down another size and had two garbage bags full of clothes that no longer fit - again! This month I became a curvy, sexy size 18 instead of the 20/22 I had been. At my largest I was a size 26. Now I'm an 18.
Also my bra went from an F...to a DDD...to a DD to finally this month a C Cup!!!!!! I can't believe it. I bought two new cute ones and couldn't be happier!!!
I'm only a few pounds away from the 60 lb. loss mark and I hope to make that this month.
Remember, I am working for an "A" in April!!!!

My 3 yr. old daughter Lucy did not want to take her nap today. This is the time I typically get my workout in. So I asked her if she wanted to work out with me (she's done parts of the walks with me in the past, she loves Leslie and says "Walk, Walk, Walk" all the time to me).
She said yes. I got her all suited up (with the walk belt) and got my new booster cables on and off we went!
She did the WHOLE mile! I didn't expect her to, she's only done a few minutes before, but she was really into it. I am so proud of her! Being a working mom it's a challenge for me to find time to workout and enjoy time with my family, and this was just so awesome and amazing, to have this workout time with my baby girl!!! My 8 mo. old, Marlo, got into the mix too, she was in her jumper and was pulling both branches like they were weights.
Such a great day!
Walk, Walk, Walk!
1 mile a day!
Together we can do it!
Marlo getting into it!

Work those triceps!
Reach for the sky!
