Current Exercise and Weight Loss Goals

A 5K today

Jessica called me at 6:45 to tell me she had locked her keys in the car. I was not happy to hear this as I had been deep in sleep when the phone rang. So, I dragged myself out of bed and went to check on Mikayla. She had overslept and had to hustle to catch the bus. I drove to the high school to let Jess in her car and got to meet her friend Michaela who totalled her car last week and needed to car pool with Jessica out to Butler Tech.

I didn't get back home in time to see Mikayla before she left for school, buuuuuuuut I was already up and dressed so I headed for the dreadmill.

I RAN 3.1 miles today. My total today (with a bit of walking to warm up and cool down) was 3.2 miles in 41:39 minutes. This was accomplished with help from Abbey and Cassie for being motivating, Sylvia for being my workout buddy and by my determination to log 100 miles by April 1st. Thanks also to Jen Livingston for posting about her 7 pound weight loss. (very helpful)

It is over an hour since I finished my run and my face is still nice and warm and a little red. What a great way to start the day!!!!!

It's always fun to have some crazy exercise buddies to talk to. GO you by the way, that is really aweseome, and if you come up with anytips to get rid of the red faster PLEASE let me know.

Good job, Maura! I'm impressed that you came home and visited the dreadmill instead of directly revisiting your pillow. (which is what I would do!)

Jen said...

You finished your run by 8 am?

You are a ROCK STAR.

You go girl!!! I think it is amazing that you have a very busy husband, 6 kids and you still find time to take care of yourself. That right there is a HUGE accomplishment. Keep up the great work!

That is amazing. Do you think you could just run a few miles here and there for me? That would really free up the time I take thinking about exercising.

Hmmm... I think I like Heather's idea of having a surrogate exerciser! Then again, I love the way I feel after I've done 40 minutes on my elliptical, so I guess I'll pass on that idea.
You are doing fantastic!!
