Originally, back in January, i set my yearly fitness minutes goal at 24,000. I am currently at 24,279 minutes. So i changed it! My new 2012 fitness minutes goal is 30,000. I have 2 months to complete 5721 minutes...which is just over 95 hours...which is just over 92 minutes a day. Very doable!
So here's another picture from the Race for the Cure Dallas that i just received...
And here are some other pictures from the Halloween Party...
It is COLD here in Texas. The last two mornings it was about 37/39 degrees...brrrrrrr!
Originally i had a 5k planned for Saturday morning...the Trek or Treat 5k. BUT a few weeks ago someone from my church approached me and asked if i'd join their walking/running group. Sure, i said BEFORE looking at my calendar. Well the start up date was the same day as my 5k. So i decided to support the church and i went to the walking/running group. It was ONLY 37 degrees on saturday morning! I recruited 2 other ladies so there were 4 ladies and the leader was some guy i've never met. WELL...he didn't show up. Something about trying to cancel it because it was too cold. WHAT?! We were already there so we went about our walk. We ended up doing a 10k in under 2hrs. Maybe the fact that it was cold made us move our butts a lot faster...we even stopped to use the rest room!
We were bundled up for sure!
Bathroom break about 3 miles into it...umm...i'm waiting outside of the restroom for the other ladies...lol...i'm not actually popping a squat right there...lol
This was her first real walk. Poor thing got blisters. We think it was her shoes because they were VERY thin soled.
NOW, just because i missed the Trek or Treat doesn't mean i didn't still dress the part!
The pictures that are "foggy" are due to the cold and heat...going in and out of my warm breast pocket basically...lol
What a cool shirt! It was TIGHT though...which is why i wore it under the 1k shirt that i had on...did you hear that? 1x shirt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So i'm signing up for an additional 5k, yes other then the other few i've already been registered for. On December 19th, the night before i fly to Chicago for Christmas, i will be doing the Dallas Jingle Bell Run! I've already recruited another 7+ppl to do it with me. I'm excited about this one!
These next few weeks are going to be B-U-S-Y! But this is probably my last actual "do what ever i want" weekend. So what am i planning? Well, i've got to make sure to get my fitness minutes in there so...

Saturday morning was the last Race for the Cure in the DFW area. It was the Dallas County Race for the Cure:
My walking buddy!
Her mom and ex MIL - they were troopers! It was their first 5k ever!!!!
Our small group with 99.5 the Wolf
Because we had first time 5kers we walked at their speed. It took us almost 2 hours to complete it! These poor ladies were complaining about their feet, their hips, dieing of thirst...but i am so proud that they finished it!
saturday night i had a Halloween Party to go to...
Uncle Eddie from National Lampoons Christmas Vacation
Flapper girl, renaissance woman and me
my little group...but there were over 70 people there.
Over the last 6 weeks I've gained and lost the same 9lbs. What I'm doing now isn't working. So I looked bck at times when what I was doing was working. So I need to change what I'm doing so that what I am doing is effective...so I can continue to lose weight and get healthy.
I was losing weight when I was eating right and burning around 800cals a day.
So what do I do now?
1) burn 800cals a day
2) eat healthy and within my range
3) streak until the end of the year
4) limit eating out to 2x a month
5) drink my water
6) stop drinking soda
A month ago I was at 55bs lost. Now I'm at 49lbs lost. I'm proud of wha I've accomplished this year. Could it have been better? Of course. But I haven't given up.
