    It's so good to hear from you again. I've been wondering how you're doing and you're doing so good. You're so good at keeping at it like I haven't been so much. Oh ya, I still track and are on SP every day, but it's like my heart isn't in it because of lack of motivation. I feel my clothes getting tight and I hate that feeling and yet I keep eating wrong. I am more aware of it though and I make more room for freggies. My husband and I are going on a little trip for several days and I'm planning on taking freggies and mixed nuts and bottles of sparkling waters, etc. We'll eat more healthy in the car and motels! I eat a lot more lettuce than I ever have, so I'm transforming little by little, just taking the long way around. You motivate me, you really do and it's so good to hear of another weight loss for you. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I love watching your Vlogs. You are so energetic and focused. Great motivation for me! I too like metric, but living in America it's difficult to say the least! I have to get the ole calculator out and figure it out! :) As for running a race within a certain time when you are just starting out is courageous to say the least. I'm not sure how far the race is that has the cut off time. Just do your best and so be it! The one without a time cut off should be an awesome race for you! What had worked for me in the past is to start the first 1/2 mile or so going at 75% MRH. (if you utilize a hr monitor).Then slow it down a bit to 50 to 55%, keep that pace for a mile or so, then, if it is a 5k race, then start picking up your pace until the end. The last mile is where I started picking up the pace to 80%. I usually kicked at 1/2 mile to go (or went all out)... focus on the finish line and give it your all. The more 5ks you do, the easier it gets. I used to compete with myself, trying to improve my times.
    Good luck with the 4% loss. Is that a challenge you are in? or is it with a friend? 1k is a lot to lose in a week, although some people can do it. Looking forward to seeing your next vlog! :) emoticon emoticon emoticon
