10 Days!!! WHAT?!

I'm freaking out. I'm running a 5k in like 10 days. I'm not ready at all. lol I sure don't feel ready that's for sure. My goal is to just finish it without passing out. I got some new shoes today though, so hopefully that's going to help.... lol nah.. I just gotta run on the treadmill everyday from now till the day of the race! Here are my new kicks...

They're soooo comfortable on my feets while running.. MUCH better than the FILAS I was running in. So far anyways. After income tax comes in, which should be a few weeks into Feb.. I'll be gettin me some Asics! I've got my eye on some already.. They cost a slight fortune though. Man It'll be worth it though. I do know I need to get a new purse.. I'm thinking of the Coach or Dooney variety. Especially after my weigh in tomorrow. I THINK it'll be a good one, but I'm not going to get my hopes up yet. As long as I don't GAIN weight, I'll be ok. 

My coach, and friend Lea Anne is doing a weight loss type vlog on YouTube.. I'll post a video of hers on here so you guys can see how awesome she is. I wish she'd make longer ones though! Lord knows she can talk about stuff longer than 3 minutes....

Oh.. so today I ate Burger King for the 1st time in a while... I ate a chicken sandwich w/no mayo. Didn't eat any french fries or anything, I drank water instead of soda or tea.. and holy crap. I felt bloated and gross for like 3 hours. I know fa sho I'll not be eating there or any other fast food place any time soon. I haven't been keeping myself from foods or anything other than fast foods that are super greasy. But this was just too much. I couldn't wait to go run it off. Thats for sure. 

I'll scan my paper from my weigh in tomorrow if I remember/have time.. I'm damn excited. 

OH on a GREAT and EXCITING note, Hailey is almost potty trained! She is in diapers for bed time and nap time and thats basically it! woot woot!

New Year,... New Motivation!

It's been way too long. I've pulled my laptop out of the corner and brushed the dust off of it. I can't wait to get a new one this tax season. I had to update anyone who reads this and let them know I'm not giving up! I was a little discouraged a few months ago.. I even went from October till January without really working out much. I stuck to my portions and tried not to go overboard with Holiday goodness. My metabolism saved my progress. Somehow when I went to Curves Jan 3rd I had lost some inches and 2 pounds! 2 Pounds in 3 months is NOT awesome by any means, but considering I LOST weight during the holidays and didn't pack it on, I'm proud damn it.

So, here I am, a year after my journey began, and I'm so close to my goal I can taste it. 125 pounds will be here before I know it. I hope! February 9th at 11am I'll be running a Funnel Cake 5k with my awesome trainer from Curves, Lea Anne. I'm scared. No lie. lol I've been on the treadmill the past 2 days getting ready for it. and I'm dying at 1 mile. I just want to finish it. I don't want to be in LAST place... but yeah, I totally might be. lol I'm excited to try though. 

I'm down to 140 lbs. Thats back to what I was at right after I had my first kid almost 8 years ago. This month's weight loss is going to be a big one, I was at 151 lbs Jan 3rd. My Wii fit says I'm 140 lbs now. I still have a few weeks before I weigh in again too. I've been drinking nothing but water during the day, except with supper. I have a glass of sweet tea because I feel like I have to. 

So, since I last updated, Allen and I have gotten married, finally, and went on our honeymoon to Port Aransas. We were up with the sun on the beach every morning and sometimes early enough to see some stars disappear as the sun was coming up. We had a freaking blast. 
This is us on the Lexington after we ate lunch. I had an AMAZING chicken salad sammach. 
This is a pic of the sunrise I took. It's crazy how many people were out taking pics.

We got to go to the Aquarium and see some cool shows. I even got to pet a Sting ray. 
This was a view from our room. 
We had an amazing time and can't wait to go back. Hopefully for our 1 year anniversary we can go back and I'll be at my goal weight. I'm super excited about how far I've come already. Not much more weight to lose, now if this stupid C-section scar would cooperate and let my belly flatten up, I'd be thrilled! I'm not sure how much its going to tighten up considering I've had 3 C-sections but I suppose we'll see. I'm not opposed to getting a little tuckage though. lol Only AFTER I've lost the weight I need to though. 

Well... hopefully within the next few months I'll have a new laptop and be able to update more. For the 3 people that read this. LOL :) Time to go potty train my 3 year old some more. Or try anyways.
