ONEder Woman in the Blue Dress

I did it!! 199.4!! Down .6 pounds from last week.. Yay! I don't really pay that much attention to the .4 or .2... I drive my self crazy if I do. So I just say -1 :] I can't believe it.. I am sooo happy!! I feel so much smaller :)

I haven't been under 200 since I was in my first trimester with Shane.. so almost 3 years! I am so thankful to God for helping me! I already look forward to the 180's.
I don't ever want to see 200 again.. and that might be tricky cause I am so close to it.
I didn't even want to weigh in today because it's that time again and I feel fat and bloated. I was surprised to see a loss. I am so proud of myself for eating right or trying to because we have hardly any groceries left, so it's been a challenge to get creative and make meals and stick to my points. Not to mention the outrageous sweet tooth I get this time of month. *Which I couldn't fulfill because we have no sweets... so that worked out good! Can't wait till Friday when we can get groceries.. fun stuff.
This blue dress has been hanging in my closet for a couple years. It's a size Large! Even when I bought it, it was a little too tight, but I loved it. The other day I was trying to find something to wear to church and I decided to try it on, even though I hated the picture of it in my head being too tight on me. But it wasn't!! It fit perfect!! Maybe even a smidge too big.. just a smidge. I've been getting more compliments on people noticing my weight loss. I feel like the inches are moving faster than the scale.. I must be gaining muscle.

I ran with Davey and the boys on Saturday evening. Davey was hard to keep up with.. and he doesn't go easy on me. I would have to sprint to him to catch up during our walk time. We did 1.72 miles in about 27 minuets. A little better than my last run. Today I plan to go to the gym to run on the treadmill then do TKB or swim.. I'm not sure yet. I need to ride my bike! It's been over a week and I have that 25 mile Bike the Coast coming up in a month! Yes I registered. =] That's all I am paying for, for now. I swear! Yikes. But it was cheap and I got %20 off coupon code, and it seems like a lot of fun. There is a Taste the Coast we get free tickets too as well. I love the beach.. did I already mention that? ;)
I really can't wait till the 5K on 11-27. I hope that I won't just be able to run the whole 5K, but that it won't be like torture the whole time. I want to feel strong and able.

And more progress reports.. my legs are strong and in such better shape. My tummy is smaller and flatter and my waist is well defined now.. it doesn't just blend into my hips anymore. I am wearing shorts around the house when it's warm.. something I would never do just 6 months ago. I actually want to do physically activity for family time!
I convinced Davey to run the other night.. he has to get ready for his WAR 5K! He can run the whole thing probably, but he has to climb walls, climb muddy hills with ropes, go under obstacles.. ect. He's gonna have so much fun! I would love to do it with him, but I know he would be so much faster than me and he would have to heave me over the walls, which would take all his strength away :/ so better leave this one to him!

I have a wedding in Morgan Hill on Sunday, and it's just me going on the trip. Davey has to stay home cause our dog is due on Saturday. They boys are staying with him because the wedding is 8-10 hours long and that's a long time for someone to watch the boys! So I am not sure if I will drive up Sunday morning and leave Sunday night after the wedding (worried about falling asleep while driving home) or go Saturday and stay with my Mom for the night. Usually on a road trip by myself I would binge in the car to entertain myself. Not this time! I don't want an upset tummy, so I'll bring healthy snacks =)
Thanks and glory to God for all He has helped me do.
