For now anyway! I hope I can keep my place in my gym's weight loss contest! First place gets 3 months paid membership! Seeing as how I'm totally broke - 3 months would be a total blessing! When I weighed in today, the gym owner was really impressed! I've lost 11 pounds since the challenge started! I guess everyone else is in the 1 - 3 lb range! How exciting! One more month - I'm going to keep my nose to the grindstone!
This morning I took my son for his first dental cleaning - I was so worried he would freak out, but he did GREAT! I am SO proud of him! No cavities! Great job Colin!! Hubby had a half day of work today so he stayed with the baby while I took Colin to the dentist. It was kind of nice to have a little Mommy/Colin time!
I decided to leave Pete with the kids again and do my run early! Today I did week 4 day 1 of the couch to 5k program. HOLY COW was that hard! I'm really proud of myself! I wanted to quit so bad in the last 5 minutes but I REFUSED! I LOVE the way I feel after a run! Not just the physiological feeling - but the psychological feeling! It feels SO good! I still can't believe I'm able to run 5 minutes at a time! I can jog for an hour with no problem too! I'm SO excited for my race on Sunday! I might do it slowly - but I will finish! I am going to have a hard time sleeping on Saturday night!!
I went to the chiropractor today to get adjusted. I had been having some hip and heel problems when I first started running. My hip is AWESOME now! I don't feel any pain in it at all! My heels still hurt a little bit, but nothing a little stretching doesn't help! The chiropractor was impressed at how quickly I've healed! I am just SO excited about how much healthier I am now! Ok - now I'm just babbling! I think I may still be on a bit of a runner's high! HAHA
Today was my last run until the race. I'm going to do my weight training tomorrow (upper body only). Then I'm taking Friday and Saturday off so I can be rested for my 5k! I can't wait! Oh - and I have decided to sign my son up for a kid's race - it's called the Awesome 3000. They have it every year - it's a 300 meter race for his age group. He will get a T shirt, a medal, and a free book - along with a pancake breakfast. I just think it would be great to introduce him to running now so he never ends up in the condition I was in! I think he is really going to have a great time! Oh and I have to run WITH him! I have a feeling it's going to be the hardest run ever! HAHAHA
Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful night! -Monica
