Back in March, I posted about running a 5K. In June, I told you about the weight loss competition and my goal of keeping up with running and working out. I figured I owed you an update (since I update you on furniture makeovers, might as well update you on my body makeover!) and am so happy to report that the weight loss competition is over and I came in second place!! I lost by 0.03% weight lost but still get a little bit of the prize money, heck yes!
While some may say second place is the first loser, I say you are wrong in this case! I worked out, started eating better and lost 30 pounds. Now how is that losing? I am so happy that I’ve kept most of it off and am ready to kick another 10-15 in the face! (Side note: this may seem like a lot of weight to some of you but I promise to my body, it isn’t that much. I am 5’9″ and can pack away pounds in places you’ve never even seen! And yes, sadly, this is weight I’ve put on since we got married 3.5 years ago. I became ‘that’ girl. Tear.)
While Pinterest is an evil time-sucker, it is also a wonderful place to find home workouts, healthy recipes and amazing motivation. Beware though, for every one healthy recipe you find there are at least 15 fattening, terrible and delicious looking recipes! I’m trying to not be so weight-obsessed but definitely weight-conscious so I don’t go off the deep-end again and lose the motivation I currently have.
Another great incentive? Las Vegas with the girls in 5 weeks. Ready, go!
