I can officially say that I can run 4 miles without stopping. 🙂 However, I have only done that once so far. I’m going to try running 4 miles about once or twice each week for awhile and run 3 miles the other times-then I’ll see if I can increase my mileage.

I now have other women that want to start running so I am training with them on the Couch25k AGAIN-it looks like this:

Run my 3 miles after school.

Run with the ladies for the training program.

Prop up on the couch when I get home.


This past Friday night I went with 3 of the girls to a 1 1/2 hour zumba fundraiser in Pelham, AL. We rocked the house!

I started the 6packMarch challenge on March 1st and have now kept with it for 12 days! Woohoo! Except today I was supposed to hold a plank for 60 seconds and COULDN’T! I’m going to try it again in a little bit!

I ran 3 miles today, walked a mile, did my ab workout, and started strength training for my arms and legs. Whew! I REALLY want to do strength training 2-3 times each week.

I ate too much this weekend so only lost 2 tenths of a pound since last Monday. Got to get better about the weekends! What hurt me was going out to eat on Friday night after Zumba and Saturday night for my best friend’s birthday. Plus this red velvet cake at my house (for my stepson’s birthday) is not helping matters any. GO AWAY BIG RED VELVET CAKE!!! 🙂

I love to run. I love to eat. I love to smile. Not necessarily in that order. 🙂 Running makes me smile. Eating makes me smile. Smiling makes me happy. Loving life right now!

  1. Wow- great job on running the 4 miles!! I still have never conquered that one… 3 miles is still hard for me but I will be pushing through that in a few weeks with my 10K training!

    • Alissa-

      How long is your 10k training going to last? On the Couch25k program it was 9 weeks, but I made it at then end of the 7th week.

  2. Congratulations on breaking the 4 miles at once barrier…well done ! You appear to be approaching this the right way, and will only get stronger from here.

    On the cake front, this may sound like sacrilege, but I would either ensure that it goes to the break room at work and stays there (and you stay away), or it goes in the trash. If it is in the house (“just for others”), you will be sorely tempted. Just sayin’… 🙂
