YEA!!! I ran today for the 1st time since last Wednesday. And did NOT eat the side of the house like I did yesterday!! I’m telling you-I have been EATING lots since last Friday night! I guess I just fell off the wagon.
But got back on it today! And it felt so good!
Ran 2 miles in just under 23 minutes-a little under an 11:30 mile pace. Then I walked just over a mile. Boy, have I missed running this past week. Now I am complete. 🙂
Thanks to those of you who sent me positive comments yesterday and today!!! You helped me get on my feet again!! Love my bloggy friends!

Have I been bitten by the food bug?? 🙂 I have wanted to eat everything in sight since this past Friday. I mean EVERYTHING!!!!! AND I have not run since last Wednesday!!! What??
Today after school I had the “urge” the “desire” to eat ice cream, potato chips, and a candy bar. Did I cave and eat all of that? You betcha bottom dollar I did!!! And it was sooooooo good!
OK-tomorrow after school I am going to run INSTEAD of eat! How about that?? But I really need some support here. Please leave me a comment about why I need to run and how much better I will feel if I run and all that good stuff. Pretty please. 🙂

I am officially rested. 🙂 I took Thursday for my “rest day” this week because:
1. We had a dance party at school and I got lots of movement in 🙂
2. I just wanted to 🙂
Then Friday I made a lazy decision to run AFTER my hair appt-which ran later than expected and then HAD to be at Pizza Hut for my best friend’s daughter’s b’day party. SO-didn’t get a run in yesterday.
Then today I went to zumba with a friend, and we went rock climbing so didn’t have time to run today EITHER!
Which makes me officially rested for the week and LOOKING FORWARD TO RUNNING TOMORROW NO MATTER WHAT! This is my plan:
1. Sonrise service at church at 6:30 am
3. Cook squash for family dinner (I know-I got out easy this year!)
4. Part-time job stuff
5. Family dinner at 2pm
6. TAXES-ughhhhh 🙂
My legs are ITCHING to run!! 🙂
Tune in Sunday to see if I scratched my itch!

So after 2 days of not being able to run more than 1.5 miles without stopping and walking-I’m baaaaaackkkk!!!!
Ran 3 miles after school. Jogged/walked 2 miles with a friend for her couch25k training. 1 hour of zumba. Quick ab workout.
I am super happy at this moment!!!!
I’m now down to 139 pounds from 163 since I started on around January 1st. I’ll be taking some more progress pictures in the next few weeks if I continue to lose and posting them on here. I’ll do my measurements, too, and update that. I feel so good!!! 🙂

Well, it’s happened again! More tornado weather has hit Alabama, and this time it was a little too close for comfort. One hit Eagle Creek (about 15 miles from my home) and another one hit Buttston (about 9 miles from my home). We were spared again. This time we actually left our home to take shelter in a neighbor’s basement. I’m thinking it’s time for a storm shelter to be built into the little hill behind our house!
One person did lose their life during this storm in Tallapoosa County where I live. My heart goes out to their family as well as everyone else that was affected by this devastating tornado.
Here’s a news clip about the tornadoes that hit the areas near my home.
And as always-thanks Kim at Joy in 6th Grade for checking on me!!!! 🙂 It’s such a good feeling to have cyber buddies that care!!
