Frazzled Friday

In four days we start our drive to my mom's. We won't be back again until NYE.   I can't believe that all the time I have to finish things!  I haven't finished buying gifts, but I will have some time at my mom's so that's not horrible.  I still have so much to do around the house, cleaning and organizing oh and making some homade gifts.

I hate coming home to a dirty house so I'll do as much as I can.  I'm hoping to schedule the cleaners to come while we're gone so it's even more clean.

Thanks for all the good wishes on the 5K.  I had so much fun I signed up for another one this weekend.  Crazy to do, with everything else, but it sounded like so much fun I couldn't resist.  It's a Santa Hustle.  You get a tshirt that looks like a Santa outfit, Santa hat and beard.  The pics look so fun.

The forecast is for chance of rain.  I hope it holds off, not sure if I'll want to do it if it's raining.  Fingers crossed for no rain,  I wouldn't even mind snow.  I think that would be fun, but I'm a freak like that.

Had my last Derby Lite class Wednesday.  Can't believe I survived the whole session, and with only one Urgent Care visit, and no major injuries.  I have done more in the last couple of months than I ever thought I could.  I can't wait until the next session to start in January.

Weigh in Wednesday and 5K results

Weighed in this morning at 


I broke into the 240"s!!!  YIPEE!  Can't even remember last time I weighed less than 250.  So close to 80 pounds lost, only 0.6 pounds more and I'll be there.  MFP rounds up, but officially I'm at 79.4.  

Jingle Bell 5K was last weekend.  I was so tempted to skip it.  I was feeling so far out of my comfort zone.  My first victory was that even though it was cold and rainy saturday morning I showed up to the 5K.

Post Race

Getting Time Tag cut off.

I have been doing Ease into 5K.  Only just started doing week 3, so it was a combination of walking and jogging.  I'd say I probably jogged about 10-15 minutes total.  My overall time was 47:45.  My goal was to finish under an hour, so very happy with that time.  I also didn't want to finish last, and I wasn't.  Out of the 1645 timed people I came in 1448 I think, somewhere around there.  There were also lots of people that didn't get timed, so there were lots more people after me.  

So happy that I did this.  Can't believe that I did it, but I did!!

Ten Things Thursday

1.  5K is this weekend. I think I'm ready as I'll ever be.  My goal is to finish in under an hour.

2. I'm excited, but I'm also kind of bummed.  Mu husband is going out of town so he won't be at the finish to cheer me on.  I was ok cause I thought I had my team to support me.  Turns out my team isn't much of a team.  My instructor who asked me to join her team old me yesterday we probably won't see each other during the race as there are so many people, and she didn't seem interested in even trying to find each other.

3.  I will be so far out of my comfort zone, part of me just wants to skip the whole thing. Trying to push through and just do it.

4.  When it's almost 70 degrees it's hard for me to get in the Christmas spirit.  Cold front has moved in and we have snow flurries in the forecast. :)

5.  They are setting up for a party at work.  I'm happy about the party, just not all the noise they are creating while I'm trying to work.  Sound system checks all afternoon really?

6.  In two weeks I'll be at my mom's.  I can't wait.

7.  I didn't sign up for Z'z weight loss challenge, missed the deadline. I was sad, even more so since I've lost 2.8 pounds this past week.  I think that's the total I lost in the last challenge!

8.  Had Arby's for lunch.  I don't think that will happen again anytime soon.  Curly fries and my band didn't agree with each other.

9.  Last Derby Lite Class is next week.  I can't believe how far I've come in 13 weeks.  I can't wait until next session starts up.

10.  Only had one taker for a Christmas Card Exchange... anyone else up for it, let me know.
