Sore doesn't even begin to describe how badly I am hurting right now! After my first run I could hardly walk for the next two days. And I was still sore this morning...it was grey and gross but I made myself get up and go running YAY FOR ME! I actually GREATLY improved my running time, I almost can't believe it! I have this program on my phone and have been using that...and I think it lost signal. A few times it told me that I had run 0 miles even when walking. And it told me my pace for a mile was 4 minutes and 24 seconds. Haha...I was over 15 minutes last time. I think that might be a little too good to be true! Otherwise...OLYMPICS HERE I COME. lol. In any event I felt like I was running faster and felt stronger.

Food wise I didn't do horrible this weekend, I definitely could've done better. I weighed in for the biggest loser and was down a little bit, not as much as I would like. The scale said 264.3 today. A loss of 1.1lbs! I feel like this would've been mre because I was so great during the week but I am definitely building muscle. I can already see a difference in my legs and thighs! They are tight from muscle soreness but definitely I feel like I'm going to be much more toned after I finish training for this 5k!

Fingers crossed my 1.1 pounds is enough to win the Biggest Loser challenge this week, lol. I definitely need groceries BADLY.

This weekend I bought a new car! My Ford Focus was getting up there in age and was really not doing everything I needed it to do. I travel a lot for work, I am constantly in the car in rain, sleet, snow, hail, and sunshine. I needed a car with 4WD that had the space for my medical supplies and such that I need. And after doing a ton of research and planning, I decided to buy a Toyota Rav4! I really like the car, its perfect, it's a small SUV but definitely not a hulking one like some of them I looked at! Gas mileage isn't too bad either! All around its a great car for homecare and I love it!!! ANd I got 0.0% for 60 months so...that cannot be beat either! Memorial Day is a great time to buy a car!

So today I am relaxing, doing laundry and getting things done around the house. I'm also going to see my LCSW for the first time in over 6 weeks WOW! It'll be good to talk things out!
I leave you with another sweaty picture of myself... enjoy!
