32 and counting....
Monday, April 16, 2012
Well, I turned 32 years old on Saturday and have a lot on my mind, but all good. My goal was to be at 230 as goal or 225 as a stretch. I made the 230 and actually my scale registered 229.8 last week but I'll be retaining most of my weight this week since it is TOM. booo!! lol, but I know next week I'll drop a few more. Almost to the 35 lb mark!! :)
I'm pretty happy with my progress so far, even with a few hiccup days/weeks. I will get off track for 3 days and have to take another 3 days to make up for it, which waste an entire week. I'm still chugging away and finally feel mentally back into my workouts. For a while, I felt like I was just going through the motions, but it is better now. I would still like to be 219 by the time we do our 5k on May 12th, but that is about 12 pounds.
As for the couch to 5k program, I am starting week 6 and really excited to say that I am a runner. I have completed two runs at 20 minutes each and am very proud of myself. Not to shabby for a fat girl, LOL. I am nervous about the 5k and being able to run all 3 miles, since the longest run I've done distance wise is 1.58, but I still have 4 weeks until the race. My goal is to finish under 40 minutes. EEK!!
As for my other goal, which was fiancial--I am doing well. I've managed to pay off all but one of my credit cards. I plan on making double car payments and aiming to get my car paid off in June. Then I'll take that money and apply it to the credit card and get it paid off in Septemeber. As long is there aren't any huge car repairs or expenses, I'll be on my way to get the rest of the little debt paid off by the end of the year. After that, I'll be working on paying off the cruise and saving for Disney. I am excited to see where I am and knowing I have a plan to get there in both of my major goals.
I am on my way for sure and look forward to the rest of the year :)
