HAPPY TUESDAY EVERYONE!
Yesterday I decided to register for the Detroit 5K, which happens to be on my birthday (10/16/11)! I am a nervous about it, but also excited! I know I won't run the whole thing (not even close) but I am happy to say for the first time in my life doing a 5K is how I would choose to celebrate my birthday! (That fact is an absolute miracle!) My past birthdays have usually consisted of cheesecake and martinis. LOL
I also feel like it will keep me accountable to stay determined and on track. I now feel like I am training when I am at the gym and it helps me push myself to see what my endurance limits are. Plus, hubby and I have our anniversary cruise from 10/5 to 10/12/11 and I think having the 5K five days after we get home will be incentive to stay the course while on vacation.
I have set a goal this week of getting to the gym EVERYDAY.....Monday down, six days to go! I want to see big results on the scale next Monday!!! :) Working toward my eight pound goal for August!
