1 minute and 12 seconds slower than last month.

In my defense, this 10k course was HARD! There was soo many hills, and they were extremely steep. So I am pretty happy with my time. The next 10k is only 2.5 weeks away! And that course is fairly flat, so hopefully I can beat my time. The countdown is on.

Randy and I went shopping this past weekend for my birthday! It was such a blast. We left the kids with my parents, and I missed them like crazy and was a nervous wreck about Gaby (her first ever sleepover), but I got over it with some retail therapy! I spent boatloads of money and got tons new clothes. 4 pairs of shoes, 2 jackets, 1 dress, 1 bathing suit.....etc... I used to think I didn't like dressing up, and buying clothes, telling myself I didn't need new and fancy stuff...but boy was I wrong! (I still don't think I NEED it, but I do LOVE it). All in all we had a great, relaxing, fun time. I don't think I'll need to buy any new clothes for awhile...but don't hold me to that! I have a dress I bought not too long ago, and planned on wearing it this weekend, but never ended up getting the chance. The night before we left though, I tried it on and got Randy to snap a picture of me. Keep in mind, it's 11:30 at night, I look like crap and Randy was laying down in bed when he took the picture, but you get the idea...
This weekend also involved a lot of eating out. We went to Boston Pizza both nights around 10pm and ate lots of cheap appys...but it was fun and well worth it. So don't be surprised when you see my weight jump up a couple pounds this week, because I won't be! Lastly, I am running my 2nd 10k race this Sunday. I am really nervous. I finally looked up the course, and it's pretty much one big steep hill! What's the worst that can happen?

Setting a goal....

I think I do best when I set a goal for myself and that's what I'm doing now. And why not share it with all of you so I can be kept accountable. So here it is: I want to get out of the 160's! I know it doesn't seem like a big deal, but I have been stuck here for a long time! There is nothing to blame but myself. I have not been doing my part to lose weight, just enough to maintain, and I am not at the point where I need to maintain yet. I still have weight to lose! I have been splurging WAY too much and not exercising nearly enough. The weather here has been unbelievably beautiful, and I need to get outside and go for a run in the fresh air! So next week I will be checking in and recording my weight in the 150's!
