Down another 2 lbs this week.
I am officially at my pre mommy weight.
Also lighter than what I came home from our honeymoon at.
(After wedding dieting, I did some damage at that all inclusive Jamaican resort!)
I am also only 9 lbs away from being classified as having a "healthy" BMI.
I do not necessarily agree with the BMI rating as someone who is buff the stuff could be classified as obese...
But it would be darn nice to have that "heathly" label.
Otherwise, I am pretty happy with where I am weight loss wise.
If I lose more, awesome...
But if not, I have been this size since I was about 14...
Half my life.
I am comfortable with it.
I have lots of clothes that fit.
My new goals are no longer weight loss related...
New goals are running related!
1. Under 30 minute 5k.
2. Run a 10k. Preferably in less than 1 hr 15 minutes.
3. Run a half marathon sometime in the next year.
Hopefully I can check off number 1 Oct 13th at the Harvest Moon 5k.
Brian heard that the run, which is at night, is directed by pumpkins carved with arrows and lit with candles.
I am excited!
Number 2 shouldn't be too hard.
Last night I ran 4.22 miles at a 10:26 minute pace.
I was feeling awesome and easily thought I could go on for another 20 minutes.
But it was getting dark...
And I ran past my house with Brian and the girls sitting on the front porch, waiting for my return....
Just need to find a 10k so I have that deadline to get it done by!
Goal number 3 will take a bit more planning as I know the time to train will be a bit harder with 2 little ones and my studying increasing soon.
My bff, a personal trainer, already told me she will run it with me I just have to tell her when.
I think I will reward myself with some nice, fitted, running shoes in the spring if I survive the winter and still running like I am.
The colder weather will be my first test to see how committed I am to this new hobby of mine...
