Well we did it 5K in 56.10 minutes!

This is after the run/walk 5k in Altamonte Springs Cranes Roost Park. This was a good day for me. This is the first of many I'm sure. On the way home I sent my trainer a message and she told me that she saw a half marathon in my future. I told her that was a possibility way way way in the future. And this is what she told me I could treat myself too.....

Of course Krissy and I shared it and I left the rest for her.. or whom ever wanted it. I agree with her now about treating yourself after something like that. I looked at my fitbit(activity tracker) and it told me that I had taken over 13639 steps and over 5 miles yesterday. Any way today is a new day and I feel good no aches or pains any where and I look forward to getting back into the gym tomorrow. Its funny I'm sitting here writing this and thinking why didn't I have this kind of control and determination when I was 25? Boy what I could have by now..  But then I think maybe I wasn't ready then like I am now. Hmmm something to think about.

Something else just popped in my head my mom really was right.."hard work does pay off"! WOW its really is true! And we thought they didn't know anything..

Talk to you all soon..

New Day!

I figured I would get in a post before I hit the gym today. I hope that this last few weeks have been good for everyone. Tomorrow is the my first 5k Run..... I'm not scared or nervous. I'm more excited than anything. I can't believe how far I have come in just a year. Last year I could imagine that I would be doing a 5k let alone running. Any way... I will try to take picture tomorrow before the race and after so that you all can see what Krissy and I look like. LOL I'm sure we will look like something hit and ran over us.. But, I know it will be worth it.
I want to thank my sister for her lovely letter to me on her blog. It made me cry and I seem to be doing a lot more of that lately and I think that I have so many emotions attached to each pound on me. Am I the only one that this happens too? I'm sure that isn't the case.  I would also like to give a Big Shout Out to my friend Melissa she has lost 21lbs and is feeling great and I hope she continues. Also one of my besties is exercising and moving Amy keep it up! I'm proud of you!

Alright the gym calls.. talk to you all later!
