Climbing A Mountain...

When you think of climbing a mountain you realize it's going to be a struggle. It's not going to be easy. It's going to make you question yourself. It's going to push you to your max, but in the end it's worth it. You get to the top and you see the wonderful view.

I believe that's exactly how weight loss goes. You struggle and you have set backs. It's not easy and if you give in you never see the amazing view, but if you keep going you will see the results of all your hard work.

I've climbed the mountain before and enjoyed the view. I've seen the results and life has taken over and I've slipped back down, but I'm determinded and I have nothing standing in my way anymore.
I'm done having kids. I have 3 beautiful miracles that show me exactly what my body is capiable of.
I have reminders of what I used to look like and how I used to feel and I want that again.
I'm sick of being stuck inside a fat suit and trying to claw out...I will do this...I will climb the mountain and leave all the disappointments, and negativity below. I will enjoy the view and you can too. Just take one step at a time and get your stride.

Not The Best But...I WILL Do Better

I ran my 10th Bellin Run this year. It's an anuual 10K. I didn't do my best time what with the 86 degree heat...BUT I finished and vowed to do better next year. I've started amping up my runs and pushing myself harder. I've even ventured to think about doing another marathon but haven't committed to that completely because it totally bugs me out.
Why you say...Well lets see 13.1 miles...well that would bug anyone whom hasn't run that in awhile.  That is alot of dedication but I feel the bug catching on.
I love to run it totally destresses me and makes me want to do better. I push myself to my limits and when I think I can't go further well I do..
That's all you can do is to PUSH PUSH PUSH....

WHAT....Did that just happen...

Ahh...So I had stated I started running again. I ran on that following Saturday and cut my time by 5 min and then ran this past Monday and cut 2 min off my time. Woohooo..This is huge for me. I'm so excited to get my stride back. This Saturday is the annual Bellin Run. It's a 10k. I've been running, walking, strolling this race for 10 years!!! Whether I was pregnant, just gave birth, getting back in shape, no excuses!!! I'm super excited. I haven't RAN the 10k for 2 years (I walked last year because my mini was 7 weeks old) and I haven't ran longer than 3.2 miles during my training but I'm STILL going to do it. It may not be my best time this year but I'm hauling around alot of extra weight. I plan to do the best I can armed with my Ruffles with Love Tank, my red nike's, and MP3 loaded with awesome inspiring music. I'm excited. I'm super excited that my kids are totally amped to be doing the kids run on Friday.

First Race...Not a great time but hey I'm wasn't a runner....but I ended up catching the bug..

Bella's 1st Kids Run
This is a family affair for us. This is the 10th year that I've participated. My kids have literally grown up participating or watching mom and dad do this race. I'm not competative with my peers but I am competative with myself. My best time was 1hr8min, with a bathroom stop, because to be honest even before having kids I had a bladder of 2 year old. I always gotta pee. Hee hee. I know I won't do that great this year but I'm still excited to participate and try to improve next year. That's my goal every year: TO IMPROVE!!!
