I really did it!!

Saturday, July 06, 2013

So I am excited to have hit my 5% goal after participating in a number of Sparkpeople challenge team Challenges!! Of course I do have my daughter's wedding next weekend so that was a good motivator but the nice weather is a big help as well. Actually I am supposed to be outdoors walking/jogging right now emoticon . But if I don't do this now I will be involved in wedding stuff that needs to be tackled.
My next 5% will be in 8 weeks...that's great but I did state that I will be tackling a 5K this year so my real goal is to beat my time which is just under 13 minutes a mile and includes a lot of walking still.
Thanks to Spark it! Thanks to my Cloverleaf team and all my Spark Friends. You all are my good support team. Oh yes, I have to give a shout out to my very fit and very slim husband as he continues to do things like ask: "Have you been in your calorie range so you can have this?" He has NEVER had to count calories so this is a change for both of us.
Yep, scary still, but on to the next challenge. Life doesn't wait for us...we have to make it happen.

    Late to the party, but WOO-HOO to YOU! :-)

You are sounding so revved, SPARKED and ready for a stupendous time at your daughter's wedding!

While I don't like to run, I like pushing myself into my one and only 5K each year for the Binghamton Bridge Run. I did an 11 min. mile for the first two years, but (ugh!) slowed to a 13 min. mile this year. Ah well, I was THERE and DOING IT, that's what counts! Looking forward to hearing about yours later this year!

    I have a husband like that. He weighed 148 pounds this morning. He seldom goes over 150, and he eats whatever he wants. He just doesn't want as much as I do.
