50, 12 and 5

Although I have been instructed (haha Laura) to not function only because of numbers...These numbers have all been good for me...

This week I finally hit the 50 mark..actually the 53 mark...53 pounds lost..It took me a few weeks to lose the last pound...which turned into 2 pounds...which ended up with me losing 5 to hit the 53 lbs lost! I am very pleased and will be rewarding myself with a new winter jacket..and maybe some fun boots!  

Early last week I stopped in at Upscale Consignment to find Lydia something PINK to wear for the football game.  They do different "color" outs for different causes or to just be funny..  Anyway...I decided to try on some jeans and was being silly and went for size 12...yep they fit!  So much fun!  I put them on hold and then went back to get them the next day! I don't even know if I ever wore a size 12 before..surely not as an adult!  

Today I ran 5 miles.  Last night I decided to try and run 5 miles with no expectations attached to it!  In fact along the way I tried to talk myself out of continuing.  So this morning I mapped my run...looking for a good route...I even allowed for some hills..knowing there is a killer hill in my next race...I did fine...I think my average mile time was 12.6 minutes which is I am finding myself being critical!  

So 50, 12 and 5 are my new favorite numbers...what are yours?

Day 3 of 31

Almost forgot to write tonight...will keep in short...I don't need to rediscover my politics.  I am not undecided.  

Good Night!

Day 2 of 31...


Today I did take some time to reflect and to open my mind to different possibilities.  My mind became very crowded as the day went on.  There are many things I am still trying to come to terms with..things I want to accomplish achieve ...but I know that I need to narrow those things down...the urgency is no longer there that use to be...and this makes me a bit sad...I am still looking for that purpose....

Here is a picture of me...taken at the MN State Fair...

31 Days of Looking for Myself...

Today I begin anew...2012 is to be my year.  MY. YEAR.  I was to start in January...and I kind of did but it really didn't kick in until the end of April.  At the end of April I took back my health and changed my lifestyle.  I have made so many changes I am not even going to list them...but lets just say I am probably healthier than I have ever been...

I still have some work to do...God only knows how true that statement is...and while on that topic...I need to say that my FAITH has been shaken and I am trying to figure all that out too. 

So for the next 31 days I will be blogging about my journey.  I think there will be posts about lifestyle, financial, faith, relationships and probably work...I know it sounds sketchy but that is pretty much how I roll now a days! 

Day One

Oh where to start.   When I first started working out I took advantage of my relationship with God.  But that was to change and I am still not sure how I feel about that.  Part of me is sad, but part me is like "eh" life goes on.  I use to pray a lot when out on my bike rides..not so much anymore.  

But enough of the complaining...I tried today to hold my attention in a prayer..can't say it was overly effective or that I remember what it was that I prayed about but the fact that I did is good, right? 

So tomorrow I will try again... and move on from there!
