Hi all... better late than never, right?
My second year Sparkiversary finds me at another new hospital. This is the worst lab I've EVER worked at, and I definitely regret leaving the other hospital. I also picked up a very part time job as an adjunct professor at a local community college. That said, I'm trying to find time to fit in physical activity around my schedule.
I at least manage to run a 5K every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday before work on most weeks. I also do the best I can keeping tabs on what I eat - emphasis on more protein, fruits, veggies, and water. With this method, I've lost about 20 pounds since around August.
I ran my first official 5K in December (time 38:38) and I'm gearing up with a group of my friends to do the USO 5K Mud Run on June 2. We did the mud run last year, but there wasn't a whole lot of running involved!! My goal this year is to run the stretches between the mud obstacles.
I still have a long way to go, but the small improvements in my stamina and realistic, reachable goals for myself help keep me motivated.
I wish everyone success in the coming year.
And to Zella, thanks for sticking with our group. I may not post very often, but I am in attendance.
Onward and upward,
