Update and Pictures

Saturday, August 06, 2011

Well I haven't been stopping by a lot lately and I do miss it here! I have been trying to be outside and active, hoping that will help the scale move, but at the same time I know i need my spark to keep me grounded. It's a catch 22!

While the scale isn't moving, I think there is a noticeable difference in the way I look from October/November to now, and I've stayed in the same 3-5 pounds. Everyone keeps telling me it must be things shifting and muscle building then so lets hope so.

Here is what has been happening over here lately:

I graduated on May 7th! yay!

I volunteered with Girls on the Run from March - May and at the end of May I ran my first 5k with them! woot!

Girls on the RunĀ® is a life-changing, experiential learning programs for girls age eight to thirteen years old. The programs combine training for a 3.1 mile running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goals of the programs are to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development.

June 11th was my 100k bike event with Tour de Cure to raise money and awareness for diabetes. my 100k (62miles) turned into 70miles due to some bad maps and directions, however it was a really nice day outside, really pretty roads, nice people on the ride, so it was a lot of fun! I also didn't cramp up or die, so that was also good!

On July 17th my good friend at work Stephanie finally got married! My husband Rick and I had a blast at her wedding.

Anyways, I've been trying to eat right, keep active, and not get frustrated that the weight isnt moving and just stay positive that ONE DAY I will get to go to Harry Potter Land*.

*Disclaimer: Reward for loosing 100lbs is visiting Universal Studios in Orland, FL and going to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, otherwise referred to by Tara as "Harry Potter Land". Reward will not be given until 100lbs is lost, no matter how awesome Harry Potter Land seems. 100lbs will come off eventually.
