Weigh Day Wednesday!

I guess since I'm back on track, I need to get back on track with my weekly weigh in posts... so here it goes.....

0.4 lbs lost

Yep, that's it.  Well, technically I lost 4.4 lbs, but since I had a 4lb gain last week (period, crap eating, laziness)... even though I said I wasn't going to even step on the scale.... my grand total is 0.4.

Don't get me wrong, I am really happy about this loss.  I busted my ass this week.  I ran 4 times for a total of  about 12 miles, conquered my first 5k, got back on the good eating train with only 1-2 bad meals, and bought my first pair of skinny jeans.  All in all, a great week!  I am 2.2 lbs away from being down 50 lbs, and I think next week just may be the week!!

Just a reminder of what I am NEVER going back to!  These were taken last year for 80s Halloween night.  Aren't my friends GORGEOUS?!?!  skinny bitches... lol.  sorry about the poor quality... as you can tell from our wine glasses, we had other priorities.

So, I think Monday, will start my official 10k training.  Not that I am in a huge rush to run one... someday.  It is more so that I can push myself to get past my 3.2-3.4 mile mark.  I still can't believe that I am able to push my body to run that far.... even if I am wayyyy slow.  So, I figure using a training program will help me push myself harder.  Today's run was a good one though.  After my hilly 5k I decided maybe it's time to conquer the fear of hills, so I ran the whole trail with about 4 hills 2 of which are pretty steep instead of my comfortable loop with the 1 hill.  I'm not going to lie, it was tough and I wanted to stop about 5 different times, but I kept going.  I ran the scary side twice and my easy flat side once  for a total of 3.2 miles and only about 3 minutes slower than in my 5k.  All in all, not a bad run!

So, I am officially off work for 8 days!!  This is my favorite part of the month and the only redeeming quality to working night shift.  I am really hoping to get my house clean, my craft room set up and functioning, and to try some new recipes that I will hopefully be sharing with you guys, in addition to my runs and being reunited with Jillian- my dad found my DVD :(   Most importantly, I will be catching up on my DVR which is filled with 2 weeks worth of treasures... The Voice, Once Upon A Time, Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story, Revenge, Nashville (my new favorite), Walking Dead, Modern Family.... who knows what countless treasures I have managed to record!  

I hope y'all have a great HUMP DAY... make it count :)  I'll keep you posted on all the awesomeness that is going on over here.  And if you feel like seeing lots of duplicate photos plus more.... follow me on Instagram @ jenlynn426  I'm getting more comfortable with pictures and I love random stuff so I'm getting better at it :)  and I want to follow you too!  So comment me your user name so I can blow ya up!!

love, Jenn
