I've had a nasty cold the past three days and so didn't get my long run in on Saturday, which I was pretty bummed about. Last night I set my alarm for 5:15am so I could get a really good workout in to make up for the weekend. Well, my alarm went off and I was not feeling it so I hit snooze. I called the gym's daycare right when they opened to see if they had an opening this morning and thank goodness, they did! I went in at 10:30am (I only had about 40 minutes until I had to get the kids and then go pick Ben up from kindergarten.) I turned on the treadmill and told myself to just make two miles, not push myself, and see how my body was feeling after a 3-day cold. I felt GREAT, much better than I should have felt after how sick I've been. I ran 3 miles in 28:08, my fastest 3 mile run so far. (Maybe I should get sick more often!! JOKE.) I felt so good I wanted to go another mile or two but had to finish up so I could get the kids. I've lost 21 lbs. now, more than halfway past my goal. I'm crossing my fingers that in another couple months I'll be there. Yesterday when I was getting ready for church, I pulled out my skirts and tried them all on. My skinniest skirts are loose which is awesome, but not great for our pocket book. Jake told me I need to learn how to tailor my clothes (he was joking... at least I think he was.) I told him when I get down to my goal we're getting me a whole new wardrobe. YEAH, baby! My motivation is back! WOO HOO!! Thanks for all the inspirational posts last week. I needed a little kick in the butt.
