I lost a challenge...

Thursday, November 01, 2012

So i had a challenge with a fellow Spark buddy and i lost. My part of the challenge was that i needed to stay within my calorie range for the entire week. WELL...i missed 1 day and look what i had to do...







That picture was HARD to take. I didn't want my phone falling into the toilet, and i didn't want my face too close to the toilet. YES i needed the toilet, the brush and myself in the picture! LOL

What a great non-damaging way to remind yourself that you'd rather than beat the challenge and encourage you to do so next time!

Fitness minutes and pictures

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

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...

Walking, walking, walking...Gotta keep on walking!

Monday, October 29, 2012

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!

My Weekend in Pictures!

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

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


























The finish!

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...




Zombie


Uncle Eddie from National Lampoons Christmas Vacation


Another zombie


Flapper girl, renaissance woman and me


my little group...but there were over 70 people there.

These were the "appropriate" pictures...
