I'm a day late, of course, because isn't that my style? :-)
So my August challenge started, duh, August 1.
July challenge results: I lost a lb from July 1.
But since I was injured I will take it.
BUT - August? August is MY month. My official weigh IN weight was 156.5. LOW for me lately, but I am really ready to kick it into gear. I have another awesome partner (my friend Stacy) who has already motivated my butt to get moving this month!
I am making it a goal to run several times a week - I am going to be running the Halloween 10K again (third year in a row!) with my friend Courtney and I am PSYCHED! I also signed me and my hubby up for the Color Run in St Louis coming up. And kids 5 and under run free - so both of my kids are coming with us! They will be SO psyched :-) Not running it, obviously, but it will still be an awesome family time for us.
I'm excited that we're camping more often. I can usually max out at 10K or more steps on camping trips, even just walking to and from the bathroom with my kiddos. I'm sure I cancel that out with the amount of beer I drink when we camp, but I still think it counts for something.
I ran 2.25 miles on Thursday. (11:25 pace)
I ran 1 mile today (10:28 pace)
Here's to speeding my pace up this month.
Here's to losing the last few pounds that are hanging around (I'm 156.5 this am; would like to get to 153!)
Here's to cleaning up my eating - not necessarily to completely "clean" eating, but to eating what is good for me. Eating what I know fuels my body, not necessarily what tastes good.
So here goes nothing! I am ready, dedicated and super busy this month. Plus my BABY starts KDG in 10 days. TEN DAYS I will have a kid in elementary school. It blows my mind how fast time is going. And all I really want is to be healthy for my family. I always tell them they are stuck with me forever and I want to make good on that one!
