So things have been AMAZING!! The biggest achievement has been that I finally hit my halfway point... I lost 50 pounds! 52.4 to be exact! It's such an incredible feeling. I knew I would get there, but living the moment is the best! When I got home from my meeting, Kyle and Sara were making dinner for me. They also made Sprite Zero cupcakes and bought be beautiful flowers. As a gift they decorated a Vinylmation for me! I absolutely love it!!! Oh, and Kyle remembered that I was craving Reese's Pieces. I don't normally cheat with candy but it was a random craving and totally worth it. I portioned it out and counted the points of course. For dinner we made tacos. We used Boca meatless crumbles, low carb tortillas, fat free cheese, and veggies. So delicious!!!
My other achievement is something I've been working on for a few months. All my hard work has paid off because I ran a 5k on 2/26! That's right.. I spelled that right... I RAN a 5K. The whole thing, I never walked. And on top of that, I ran the 5K in 34 mins while maintaining an 11 minute mile. I was shocked. The great thing about it was, not only did I complete the entire run without stopping, but I didn't feel like I was dying afterwards. I was tired and out of breath but I quickly recovered. I can tell that training really helped. Exactly one week after my 5k, I was registered to run another one. So I ran last Saturday in the ESPN 5k. I was feeling pretty tired and I was running this one alone. I figured my time wouldn't be that great because I didn't have the adrenaline of the first race. Well I looked at the clock as I finally ran through the finish line and to my surprise... 34 mins! Can you believe it?! I maintained exactly an 11 min mile again! WoW! I guess I am a runner! :)
Tomorrow is weigh in day and I'm pretty excited. I think it will be a loss, not a big one but I think I lost this week.
