trying2 run....again :)

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Motivated by the hospital Biggest Loser weight loss competition, I am finally doing what I know needs to be done...losing weight and exercising. Hopefully when I weigh in Monday it will show I have lost 20 lbs total. Currently 1lb shy of that. My first 5k will be this Sat with my daughter (who has just signed a Cross Country scholarship to a 4 year college). I have been following her and her running career since she was in 6th grade and know the ropes of running pretty well. I know the health benefits of running (and walking) and feel it is in my best interest to 'follow in my daughter's footsteps'! I know it's a little backwards lol. Pretty sure she will be at the front of the pack Sat and I will be at the back however I do not mind. Gotta start somewhere! My total weight loss goal is to lose 43 lbs. If 20 is my loss on Monday I will only have 13 to go. Woohoo!! I've been walking and running trying to get in some sort of shape. I will post sometime the weekend as to whether or not I survived!! Yep I welcome encouragement!!!!

    Thanks for the words of encouragement JULESJET! Ran a total of 30 minutes last night with a 5 minute walk break in the middle and survived.

    Just reread my original blog post. Apparently I can't add...or subtract lol! Need to lose 23 more lbs not 13 to reach my goal.
