We have been busy!!
Summer is a crazy time for us then add in a girls trip to see NKOTB, BoyzIIMen and 98degrees and then a trip to Seattle and summer is even busier. Then, add in the fact that my Mother In Law (MIL) is losing her battle with Cancer and you've got quite a trying time.
Between the two vacations and the sheer craziness of it all, I have gained 7-10lbs from my maintain range. It really shocked me to see the number on the scale and it was like dipping my face in ice water to restart my heart...I got the message.
I was looking at the number on the scale as the be all again and that isn't what it's about...because when I do that, I exercise enough to be able to eat horrible and that is just not healthy for my body!
I have started running and, dare I say, I am at the love to hate it point. I WANT to run these days, it's scares me! :) I have a 5K this weekend, it's a Glow Run and not even timed, but I made a goal in May that I would do this run with out walking...as of today, I can do that!! I also signed up for the Corporate Cup run and this year I'm doing the 10K...I'm not sure I'll do it with out walking but I know I can do 4 miles with out walking whats another 2.2? Wait...did I just say that? The girl who couldn't jog 3 minutes with out feeling like passing out just 3 months ago? Yeah, yeah I did. Running is a sneaky thing...you hate it, hate it, hate it...then suddenly, one day, you realize you really like how you feel when you are done and the alone time while you run...yeah, it's got me.
Today is back to school day for my kiddos. We officially have a High Schooler (Freshman), a Middle Schooler (6th grade) and a Kindergartener! What the heck?!?!
Ahh life just keeps on happening, no matter what my excuses, so it's time to get on board and live it!
Make it a great day all!
