2nd Place 5K

Saturday, October 23, 2010

Today I will run in a 5K.
I decided about 2 weeks ago when a fellow Sparker invited me.
So I am going to do it. I just hope I do not fall or do something stupid.
I am going to try to come in under 1hr. I am ready.
Getting ready for the race has really motivated me to keep going and to do my best.
I was in a slump and this has gotten me to move it.

Well I lived to blog again after the race. I came in 2nd place for my age group. I could not believe it. Thanks so much to my Spark Friend for getting me started running. My time was under 40 mins. I am hooked. I want to run another 5k. Next time I will come in 1st place for my age.

Who am I losing the weight for?

Monday, October 18, 2010

I listen to many people say they are losing weight for the wedding, class reuion, for a party.
I had the drean that when I become thin everything will be happy and I will be happy.
My marriage will be wonderful, my kids will behave, I will love my work and I will fit in.
That is my biggest wish that I could fit in, that I would be accepted. I do not want to be talked about anymore.
But that is a dream and I now see that being thin will not make me accepted. Being thin will not make me happy. If I am not happy with myself no matter how much I lose I find something to hate myself about. If people do not accept me fat they will not accept me thin. I need to enjoy and live my life for myself and not for others. This time I am losing weight for me.

    You certainly have the right idea while losing weight and expecting all the happiness will not happen if you do not accept yourself as you are now know that what others think we think is importanthowever what we think is more important and living one day at a time and being happy and content in that day is really what is important God Bless

    While I will set myself short term goals

husbands Christmas party is in a month
mine 2 weeks later
Christmas 3 weeks after that

So I am using each event to keep me going to the next one

But they are not the reason why I am losing weight. I am losing it for me - for long term health

    I love this! That is the motivation I used when I went from a size 28W to a 20W! Thanks for reminding me that this time it is okay to do this JUST FOR ME! I wish you the best... emoticon

I ran my 1st 5K

Monday, October 11, 2010

I am going to Jog/Walk a 5K with TXDREAMSPINNER a Sparks Friend. I am so happy because if it had not been for Sparkspeople I would have never known about this event. I am looking forward to meeting Sommer in person.

I have not ran in a race in over 20 years. I was 30lbs thinner. I am not going to let the weight stop me. I am going to try my best and I will finish. I know I can walk 3 miles in 50 mins so I hope I can jog a 5k in less but who knows. I am looking forward to Oct. 23. If you live in the Rio Grande Valley near Rio Hondo come and see me and spread the spark.

Just get up

Tuesday, October 05, 2010

Tuesday is always a hard workout day. I just don't want to get up at 5:00am. The alarm went off I hit snooze and slept 20 more mins. I just kept hearing my TOPS leaders voice in my head. Just do at least 20 mins. of exercise you can do that. 20 mins. So I got up and walked 2.5 miles. Felt great. Everyday it is hard to get up but I know I in my head I feel better after I walk it is just getting out of bed.

I am proud I am another day of Sugar Free.
