Weigh In - Week 26

Big week.  Thanksgiving was lovely and I kept my over-eating in check.  However, I would still categorize it as "over-eating".  I was able to get to boot camp on Monday and Wednesday before the binge-fest ensued.  Wednesday was awesome.  Mallory - the trainer at Positively Fit Lake Highlands - had us doing all sorts of new and difficult drills.  I even got muddy!

The thing I'm most proud of this week is that I went running on Saturday and again on Sunday and again today - and all on my own.  I ran one mile on Saturday and a mile and a half on Sunday and a mile today pushing 60 pounds of kids and stroller to boot.  I did not walk.  I just put on my headphones and headed out the door.  It was great.  It is the first time in my life that I've ever felt pleasure in running.  Sure, I've enjoyed running while in the course of a basketball game or while running down a tennis ball, racket in hand.  But to enjoy running for running's sake is a totally new sensation for me.  So, thank you Mallory.  I think this has a lot to do with you and your awesome workouts.

Pounds lost this week: 1
Pounds lost overall: 39

You are amazing, Sarah! I'm so happy to be a small part of your journey! Can't wait to see you run that 5K. In fact, I'd like to run it with you :)

that's fantastic! I can't believe you can run a whole mile already! I've only just started eliminating some of my walk breaks! WTG!!
