Well, I had every intention of getting this posted last night, that was until my back decided to start spasming for over 12 hours. Needless to say, I didn’t go to work today and couldn’t sit here for more than 5 minutes without wanting to cry. It is MUCH better now, thank you.
- So, I had my official weigh in yesterday and it wasn’t much of a loss, but it does take me officially down to 64 pounds lost…woohoo! I am also now in a size 12 (haven’t seen that in over 10 years) down from a 20! I’ve also lost 4 inches in my band size and 2 cups in my bras…I’ll spare the guys that read and not post specifics. :) Honestly though, I have a tendency of focusing on the *stats*, but I feel SO much better. I feel better about myself and I feel healthier. This journey has not been easy but it is the best thing I have ever done for myself.
- Yesterday, Bryan and I met at the gym and I did my longest run yet (and kicked Bryan’s butt…LOL). Previously, I had ran for 45 minutes straight and yesterday I almost hit 50 and at a higher speed (I am working on increasing my speed right now). I am trying to work up to 4.4 miles straight by Memorial Day for our annual Gate to Gate run, which I don’t think will be a problem (4 months to add 1 mile). I wanted to go run again today (a short run) but alas with my back acting up, I couldn’t and now I won’t get back in the gym till Thursday….blah. Who would have ever though, me a runner…and one who enjoys it?! This is coming from the person that as a kid would forge notes to get me out of PE and the only kid in my family that ever got a *B* in PE…LOL!
- I am so excited, if everything goes as planned, Bryan and I have a getaway weekend starting on Friday. My mom is coming up on Thursday to stay the weekend and keep Jacey. We booked 2 nights in a hotel out in Sandestin and have plans to go to Fired Up! or the Paint’n Place (paint your own pottery), go go-kart racing, Melting Pot and just enjoy each other. Bryan and I haven’t been away for leisure since July 2007 (I don’t count our trip to Birmingham last April, because that was for medical reasons). I love Jacey dearly, but it is nice to be able to just be a couple once in a while.
