wednesday weight in

So I've been meaning to post about this, but keep forgetting. So I've been running now for a few weeks. YEAH!

And I've got to tell you that I feel good. For the first time, since probably high school, I'm enjoying running again. Well maybe not the actual act of running, but I LOVE how I feel after I've run. Such a sense of accomplishment.

I'm up to 2.5 miles. Adam has run with me a few times, which is awesome. I love running with him b/c he really pushes me. He is 6 feet and I'm only 5'4" so I'm always trying to catch up with his long legs!

As far as the scale goes... well I'm trying not to weight myself. I've been at pre-pregnancy weight for a couple months, but it just isn't in the same place and I can't wear the clothes I once could. So I'm really shooting more for slimming and toning and maybe shedding 5lbs or so.

OH and the most important thing, Adam and I signed up for our first 5K. November 1st. So no staying up late on Halloween. We are also planning to do the Dallas Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day. One I've done many times since as far back as I can remember. Get excited!!!

I also wanted thank everyone for your sweet comments and emails. I'll post more after she is evaluated. I'm sure she just needs a little extra help and she will be reciting Shakespeare! :)

I'm so jealous that you're going to yambo! Is this Grace's first yamboree? And I can't believe that Adam is already been graduated for 10 years, wow!
And just to console you about Grace's speech, I used to get my consonants confuesed. i.e. magazine was mazagine, fabric was favric, even Oprah was Okrah. She'll do great and be talking your arm off.

Great job! Andy is doing his first 5K this Saturday. Maybe I'll join in the running fun!

Go you! I have never been a runner, but I always wanted to do the Turkey trot. Maybe we will join you? Do I need a jogging stroller to go?

Hey Lisa :) I looove your blog! I found it through your facebook page. The graphics are so cute, you'll have to teach me how to do that on mine . Sweet Grace will do great if she needs speech therapy. I couldn't say the "r" sound until the 4th grade. I always thought it was fun to go to the speech therapist - kids get to play games, get prizes, that sort of thing. It's great that if she needs it, she'll get help so early.

When we saw you in Sept. you looked great..jogging becomes you! Keep it up babe!
Cool weather has finally hit Dallas, jogging outdoors sounds invigorating. Maybe Charlie and Ashley will join you for the Turkey Trot.
