Well today is my birthday and so far it has been okay. I weighed in and I am at 179.5, the same as last week which is just fine especially since I have my TOM, we had a stomach bug at our house last week, my two oldest had strep and my husband and I did out first 10K last Saturday. WOOT! So being at 179.5, means I have lost 24.5 pounds since November. Yippee!! I still have more to lose but it feels amazing to have lost that much. I just feel so much healthier. The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans is having a Lands End giveaway this week for Swimsuits and I would love to win one. I have not bought a swimsuit in who knows how long and I really need a new one. Hope I win.
For my birthday I have the day off from work and my husband is home since it is Wednesday so we are going to Green Bay later for errands and because we have dentist appointments (me and the boys), how exciting. We will probably go out for lunch or supper, not sure where yet. Big decisions to be made.
Our first 10K went pretty well. We walked it. I did the 5K in 49:31 but right after that I had to go to the bathroom and I waited in line for almost 10 minutes to use the porta potty so I tried to catch up to my hubbie and friend, Jess but I never did. I finished in 1:46:25, with a pace of 17:08 per mile. I was really a little quicker than that but the stupid long line. Oh, well. I finished 13,779th out of 18,000 and some. I really pushed it at the end to catch up to them so I was really sore on Sunday but feel a lot better now. We have friends who did a tri a few weeks ago who really inspired my husband to want to do something like that so he found a dualathon he could do in October so now he is really considering doing that. We will see, I hope he does it.
