Back and Better than ever!!

On my first blog post I said that this blog would be a roller coaster, and I must have known what was to come, because boy this past week has been one crazy week of crazy emotions. I wanted to apologize for the last few posts. I have been pretty emotional and I think its partly because I fell of the wagon on my lifestlye change and I was upset and had a lot of anger. I was mad at myself and so I was mad at others and took it out on them.

The great news is that I am back and better than ever!!

This morning I ran in the Bellaire Trolley 5k run!! Well, I jogged and walked. But I ran the first mile in 13 minutes! I started to switch walking and running and when I got to the 2 mile mark I was almost ready to give up...when this awesome woman named Julie cam up behin dme and started cheering me on! I didn't even know her! She just came up behind me and started pushing me ot jog with her. And I did! I ran the whole last 1.5 miles and I thought I was going to die!! I even finished strong and sprinted the last 10 feet. It goes to show you how nice people in Texas and how a hobby like running can bring people together. It felt so good to cross that line strong. So a huge thank you to Julie wherever you are!

And the best thing ever? I shaved 7 minutes and 41 seconds off of my first race back in February!! I was super excited about that!! I almost burst into tears! I even hugged the ladt Julie!! LOL

After the race they were giving away some great freebies. I even won a door prize! Is that fate or what? CiCi's pizza was there giving away free pizza (and if oyu know me that is my biggest weakness!!) but I thought, why would you want to eat crap after you just ran 3.5 miles?

I will leave you with a picture that my mom took of me after I got home from the race!!

Confession: I ate a double cheeseburger yesterday in the car on the way home and threw out the evidence before I got home!!

Cheer: I just ran a 5k race!! I also picked up a free Dr. Pepper at the race, but then I decided to give it to my kiddo because I didn't want to damage a body that just ran a 5k!!


  1. congrats thats an awesome achievement! you are doing great :)

    ps i just ate chips and threw away the evidence lol
