Small victories

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

I am celebrating small victories today!

I completed Week 3, Day 1 of the couch to 5K program this morning - 39 days to go until the official 5k date!

I set out a goal this month to get to the new trophy level on Spark and acheived it today!

I actually got my husband's birthday gift WEEKS ahead of the actual day, so I am ready for the big day this week.

With hubby's help, I filed our taxes last night and got my dad's ready to go once we receive the final statement.

They don't seem like much, but these little things do add up!

  I agree - small victories like that do add up! It helps you think that you are achieving things on your way to an end goal.

My first official 5k!

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

I have officially signed up for my first 5k race! I convinced hubby to join the race with me (after he said just hours earlier that we need something to motivate us to get to the gym.) So, we are signed up, fees paid, and committed to being ready on May 7th!

I have to say that running is my very least favorite form of exercise, and has been all my life, so this race is not only going to challenge by ability to get off the couch (or out of bed early), but also my desire to avoid running like the plague! Here we go!!

    Running is probably one of my least favorite things to do so I relate. With that being said though I have signed up for 2 5k's one 10k in preparation for a 1/2 marathon I'm doing in June. So if I can do it...you can too. Best of luck with your training! Happy running!!

Had a visit to the doctor today and heard those dreaded words "lose weight." My first thought was "ya, ya, I've heard that before." But she made some interesting points that I hadn't thought about before. So, I'm back here to Spark myself into a healthier me and recommit to the efforts I started 10 months ago. Here I go...


Despite temptation

My niece is in town and we've been touring the Orlando theme parks. I'm proud to say I've been walking and walking and have been looking for the healthy meal options on the menus! Feeling good!
