5K Commitment, Long Work Days, Finally Healthy

Friday, November 13, 2009

I had a pretty good week this week. Things at work are still pretty chaotic, and I've been working long days.

The tickets that were lost last week are still lost this week. Kind of sad, but in a way it's freeing, because now I don't feel obligated to go see all of those movies.

In other news, I had a nice big loss this week. My BMI is officially in the healthy range(!), but I still have a lot of work to do. It's extremely motivating, and I'm committed to making healthy good choices this weekend! 2009 is going to be MY YEAR!

I'm also going to be doing the 5K Santa Shuffle on December 5th. I'm kinda nervous about it, but I've been working on the Spark to 5K program, and I'll be ready. It should be really fun, everyone gets a Santa Hat and Beard to run in. LOL, I will definitely try to post some pictures, besides, I haven't posted any "progress" shots. Even though I've lost 20 lbs so far, when I look in the mirror, I don't see a huge difference. Hopefully by December 5th, I'll be one slim Santa, lol. Here's the link if anyone in Chi-town is interested in running with a sea of Santas: www.santashuffle5k.com/

Hope everyone has a safe, healthy, and productive weekend. I love all you SparkBuddies out there, and I don't think I'd still be chugging away without your amazing inspiration and support.

    That 5k sounds like so much fun! I need to see if St. Louis has something like that.

    Congrats on the BMI - I think I'm "obese"! I can't wait to see the Santa photos, how cute! Best wishes to you on your 5K - that's a wonderful accomplishment!
