January in Review

Well...what can I say? January has been a month of some major up and downs. I have had some of the happiest and some of the saddest days of my life thus far. 2010 certainly started out with a bang, and if the rest of 2010 is anything like this month I may not make it through!

The first few days of the year were rather scary. The love of my life was at death's doorstep. There were some moments in those first few days where I wasn't sure I would be getting married in June. Luckily, and by the grace of some higher being in this world, he made it. I appreciate him so much more everyday now. If I never have an experience like that again I will be a happy girl!

January was also the month for new beginnings. I joined SacFit and am now training for a half marathon on May 1st! Some days I think I am crazy for joining, but most days I am happy to be getting in better shape and seeing myself do things I never in a million years thought I would do before! The group is so great I don't even mind getting up early on Saturdays! That is a feat in and of itself! I printed an exercis calendar from WWChick and managed to work-out even more than my 3-day a week commitment. I am so proud of myself! Here is picture proof!

I am exercising, eating healthier (most days) and enjoying life! Tomorrow is my 25th birthday, which is a little overwhelming to think about being a 1/4 century and all, but I am pretty excited to see what the next 25 years brings!

Friday Weigh-In

Last week's weigh-in was not so fabulous (177lbs), but this week's was awesome! I am now at 175.2lbs! I love seeing that 5 in there, it makes me happy! I have also had a really great exercise week, and have been pretty consistent these past 3 weeks. SacFit is really helping me reach my fitness goals! Our run tomorrow is 46 minutes...I hope I don't die! I am thinking we will do about 3 miles, which is about the same as a 5k. If you told me 6 months ago I would be happily running 3 miles at 8:30am on a Saturday I would have laughed at you, but now it just seems so natural and even fun! :D

Week 3 of SacFit!

I cannot believe it has been almost 3 whole weeks since I started with SacFit! I am so proud of myself for actually signing up and sticking with it. Matt is proud too! I like being able to stick to my guns and follow through on something, especially when it is so fun! :D I am really having a blast! There are so mnay awesome people out there, most of them in the 14's! :D

My run today was great. Matt came and bought me lunch and then I actually convinced him to come with me! Now I am waiting for Parent Orientation Night to start. I have been at school since 7am! Ahhhh! Only 2 more hours! Tomorrow I am running with Tracy and Yvonne in McKinley Park. I hope the weather is as good as it was today for my run, AKA not raining!

Welcome to my new blog!

I have had a live journal account for awhile, but it doesn't seem as user friendly as this. Here I can add gadgets and countdowns and all sorts of fun stuff! Plus, my awesome future mother-in-law can be a "follower" and see my blog! :D I hope to try and update often with my exercise, weight loss, wedding planning, and whatever other adventures I may have!
