My BIG accomplishment

May 31st, 2009 at 06:26 pm

Today I did something I have never done before, something I never dreamed would be possible:

I RAN 5 MILES IN 53 min and 29 seconds.

I RAN 3.30 MILES WITHOUT STOPPING.

5 months ago when I started my journey to wellness I couldn't even run at a 5.0 on the treadmill without feeling like I was on the precipice of a severe cardiovascular disaster. Now, I feel so strong! Not a marathoner by any means but still strong!

After the gym husband and I did the weekly shopping. Spent 184.00 but had a 20.00 gift card to Walmart so total was 164.00 This is all our food and household essentials, animal food, detergent etc...

After supper I took M. to the high school track and we ran 2 laps and walked 3 laps. We ran up and down bleachers like crazy fools and did lunges and some kickboxing.

Great Workout day!

My new goal is to be 130 lbs. by July 18th. (Big family reunion) That is 8 lbs to lose...gonna have to work my rear off. My final goal is 120 lbs.

I picked up 4 extra hours of work this week so that will be a nice little bonus on my next check. We are going on a 3 day vacation in 3 weeks, 2 days at Cedar Point. We're probably going to spend around 600.00 so every cent counts.

This is the first vacation we have taken in many many years.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. The weather in my little world is gorgeous!
