I finally saw a new number on the scale, 192.5. If I am 90% on plan this week I could possibly be flirting with the 180s. I cannot believe I am less than 20 pounds from reaching my goal weight, or what I think my goal weight should be, right now I am shooting for 175. I am tall, 5'11" and most of the weight charts say I should be 133 to 179. I am too tall for 133! I just want to look healthy and strong. From the BMI calculators (I know they are an estimate) I only have about 10 pounds ...

All I have to say is OMG. I did a 5K on Saturday and my goal was to just break 29:00. My previous best time last July was 29:26 on a very flat course. BUT just in October I was back at trying to break 32:00. I was a good girl and Friday night I drove the race route and there were only 2 significant hills on the course. Race day weather was perfect too, 40 degrees, sun and just a little bit of wind. I complete the race in 28:15!!!! That is a 9:06 average pace! I finished 14th out of 108th...

Overall I had a great weekend. Friday night we celebrated V-Day with the family. We made homemade pizza and swapped little gifts. It was a nice family night.

Today is a sleepy day, I just want to take a nap. I cannot believe it is already Thursday.

Eating wise the week didn't start out great. I was just flat out hungry. By Sunday I was finally able to get the hunger under control and got back on track with eating within my goal range.

Saturday I did that Bridge Ceremony 6K run. It was crowded, my goal to to keep it at a tempo pace which is 9:45-10:00 pace. There was still snow on the ground so we needed to be careful and it was 15 degrees...

Winter, I know, I don’t have to say any more. We got another storm last night, snow and freezing rain and school canceled again for the girls. I can handle the snow but what I am really getting tired of is the Wind!!!! It just hurts when you step out the door.
Luckily I have been able to get in all my runs in outside. I will do anything to not have to run on the treadmill. Running has been going very well. Unfortunately, this past Sunday training team was cancelled because of freezing...
