Lbs gone and a race this weekend

Friday, September 19, 2014

I am beyond happy right now! It feels so worth it to step on the scale and see it heading in the right direction. Especially when I have stuck to my plan as much as I have. I have never been this successful at not eating junk and I don't know that I have ever worked out 6-7 days a week. I don't even feel burnt out yet and by now in the past, I definitely would have. It is 3 weeks in and I am down about 13 lbs from where I started. I know that will slow down, but I will take what I can get for now because it is just so freaking satisfying.

The Neon Dash 5k is tomorrow night. I am so ready for it. Unfortunately, my mom hurt her knee while running this week and is afraid she may have to walk most of it and I know she was really looking forward to being able to run in her first race. I am not quite sure what to do, if I should stay back with her or just go at my own pace. I wish I knew what to tell her to do to prevent hurting herself again because I really don't want her to get discouraged so early on.

I took my son to his first Jiu Jitsu class last night and he loved it of course. The guy that runs the place was trying to talk me into Crossfit classes and I really kind of want to try it out. I know they are really challenging, but that is kind of what I like so much about it. Anyone else done Crossfit? I know it has been pretty popular for a while so surely some Sparks have tried it out. Just a little curious how effective it is at getting someone in shape and if it is doable.

Everyone have a great weekend!

    So sorry to hear about your mom, I hope she heals up quickly. By now your race should be done, I hope all went well and you busted it out!

    Wow, you are doing great! Hope your mom is OK -- she'll probably tell you what she wants you to do. I know a lot of people who train together but then do their own races and just meet up afterward. My husband (who could go a lot faster than me) always stays at my pace and we cross every finish line holding hands up in the air. I really love him for staying with me because I am a big baby and would probably quit if I was on my own!!

    I have not done Crossfit but I know lots of people who have -- it apparently becomes quite addictive! I hope you will blog about the race. Good luck!!
