Back! C25k & Other Random Stuff!

I'm back from a great week. So proud of my co-workers for putting on such a great conference.

The coolest thing happened this week. I noticed one of our local clients, who we just adore, had lost a bunch of weight. When I got a chance to talk to him he said that he and his wife both had lap band surgery (she was there with him) we chatted up for a good 30 minutes about it and throughout the rest of the week as well. It was so awesome to see them and have that bond with them.

The good news is, there is 5k on my birthday this year that MS and I, along with a big group of friends have signed up for. It's one of those color runs where every throws colored powder as you're running and you get super dirty. It should be a blast and it will keep me on track with training for the next few weeks.

Had a little wink/ tear jerker today. I completed the first day of couch to 5k and I didn't cut a single corner or stop once! I pushed as hard as I could and right at the end as i was cooling down a song came on that happens to be the one song that brings me back to my first 72 lb loss. Whenever I hear it I smile and think about losing consistently, working out as hard as I could 7-9 times a week and feeling on top of the world. As soon as it came on I got choked up on the treadmill because I know I can do it again.

I hate that I struggle with food and weight gain, but it's my issue/cross to bear and I'm going to work hard on getting control of it. I had the hardest year of my life last year and shoveled food in my mouth to cope. So now it's time to dust off and get back at it! I think talking to our client and his wife this weekend inspired me. I have the most awesome weight loss tool in my body and its time to start utilizing it again.

Thank you so much for still reading and for commenting. It feels so good to have a little group to air it all out to and to also be inspired by.


  1. Congrats on the C25K! I think getting started is the hardest part, not giving into the "I can't do it" thoughts is tough! That 5K sounds like fun. There's one in my town that I think I'm going to do this fall.

  2. This is a great program! The C25K that is. I think you will love it. I've been doing it too! I'm doing The Color Vibe in July!

  3. You CAN do this! I've slipped back too, so far, but I WILL get to goal. xxx
