Teetering on my Goal Weight!!

Shhhaaazam!!! Sooo It's June 5th and I'm almost there... well to me I'm there. Last week I was at 130 then a few days ago it was 132 then back to 130 and it goes on like this.. So congrats to me for making my goal just before summer! What a sweet sweet time! I don't think I've ever been active for 6 months straight. Wow, that in itself is a major accomplishment. For all of you who think it can't be done, I call your bluff!! Some of you may be just starting out with losing weight and some of you are still going strong with it. I encourage you all to read my earlier blogs and see the progress you can make in a few months!!

Now that I reached my goal I still see a great ring of "love" around my middle and trouble spots like my fricken "Oprah" arms.. egh! Sure sure stop complaining you say but hey I'm a girl, it's what I do best! haha So I'm going to be stepping up the weight training to tone the flab and get some definition in thur. Our beloved Monday night step class has been switched to flex and tone/Pilates so I'm actually pretty excited for this!! Since starting running I've neglected muscle toning and for me that’s probably more important at this stage than anything! NEVER NEVER think that you'll get HUGE if you weight train. This is a myth and woman’s bodies just aren’t capable of looking like that unless you take testosterone or steroids! You need weight resistance to get that HAWT toned look! I swear I wouldn't lie about a precious fact like this!!

So this past weekend I ran my first 5k run, I made it 4.5 outta 5 because on the 3rd K I had the craziest stitch in my side that I've never felt in my life so I had to stop for a half lap. Once I felt it disapear I got my second wind and finished the race off strong- third girl! 7th Place baby!! It was an amazing feeling to do it and for the cause. I'm definitely interested in keeping this a regular thing! Super fun! Here's a few pics of the ALS walk/run:

So this is all for today, we'll catch ya'll next blog!!
