Wow, where do I start?! It feels like it has been forever since I have blogged. Let's see here, last week I was in a funk because I hurt my foot. I didn't track, I ate like crap, we ate out a lot. Although Monday and Tuesday I didn't have any pain in my foot so I did Step Class at the gym. I did have a little pain about 15 minutes in but it went away and I was fine after a few minutes.

Wednesday was weigh in day. I went and did Zumba in the morning at the gym, took the kids to Subway for lunch, then had to head into work. With it being a beautiful 68° outside, I quickly did what had to be done at work and headed out for C25K W3D3 before my weigh in at 4:30. I ended up going to the Anderson Community Center and running the track we used to run for our timed mile run. Little back track here, for those of you not familiar with the C25K program this is what I did: Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then do two repetitions of the following: Jog 90 seconds, Walk 90 seconds, Jog 3 minutes, Walk 3 minutes, then a 5 minute cooldown. The track from BC was 2 1/2 times around to be a mile. I wasn't very happy with the time it took me to do this. It seems a week off with no running really set me back. Oh well, at least I did get a run in right?

Weighed in and lost .4 pounds. Which means I am still up .2 pounds from the previous weeks gain. I couldn't believe I had a loss! I will take it though as a blessing from above, since I really fell back into my old ways with feeling sorry for myself because of my foot issue. Still trying to work on getting over those little bumps without any issues.

Speaking of my foot, yesterday when I woke up, it was hurting again...go figure. It still is bothering me today as well. I really am freaking out about this once again. Typically I wouldn't worry about it and would just switch to walking and trying to walk faster. Thing is, I have this damn half marathon I have to worry about! I wanted to complete it in 3 hours and 40 minutes, which is about a 15 minute mile. I know a 15 minute mile walking is good, but damn. When I figured out my pace for my Monday run a couple weeks ago, it was 14:39....that was with running/walking folks. This is why I am scared! I guess I will ice and stretch my foot some more this week, and try to see where I am at on walking fast. My half marathon is only 8 weeks away!!! AHHHHHHH!

Next thing on my list to catch the blog back up is I decided to pick a goal dress for my 30th birthday. My original goal for my 30th was to weigh 165 pounds, that is a loss of 2 pounds a week. Better get on that! So that should put me around a size 12. This is the dress I am going to get IN A SIZE 12!

I really am anxious to dig into my workout dvd's that I own and actually see how many I do have. I know it's a lot and I know a lot are not even opened! Gonna try and see how many I can do! Would be a fun little challenge!

Well I am sure that I have bored you enough with all this ranting and was probably all over the place with this post, but hey its me. I am sure I will think of at least one more thing I wanted to say when I hit post.
