I'm pretty excited... I ran 2.5 miles on Thursday and then again yesterday. That's a big deal for me because when I first started running (a couple weeks ago) I wanted to quit after about .25 miles.

I feel like I can run farther each time and it is getting easier. And I don't dread it anymore. I'm actually starting to like running. Wow! It's like a breakthrough! :)

My 5k is next weekend and I'm excited for my first race ever!

In other news, I have 4 lbs to lose in order to win our little contest. Hmm... not likely. But Nate will probably reach his goal, so yay for him. Counting calories works I tell you! But it's not easy, that's for sure.

I'm probably not going to reach my goal (lose 10 lbs by July 4th). I've lost 4 lbs since we started this little challenge, so I only have 2 weeks left to lose 6 lbs. Not likely.

It's OK though because I'm going strong! I am eating really well and working out almost everyday. I can tell that my clothes are getting looser and I'm fitting into more of my pre-pregnancy clothes. It's a great feeling!

P.S. I'm not a fan of running. At all. So it's been hard forcing myself to run to get ready for this 5K. I wish I liked to run, but I just don't.

I'm super dedicated lately for 2 reasons...

#1. Nate and I are currently having a competition to see which one of us can lose 10 lbs by the 4th of July. We started a few days ago. Its a lofty goal, but I'm hopeful. If I win, I get a $150 clothing shopping spree, which I really need.

#2. My sisters and I just decided to run a 5K together on July 3rd, and I don't want to come in last. :)
Wish me luck!!

My Favorite Things

Asparagus is awesome. I love it. And each spear is like 3 calories. I could eat it all day long.

I'm thankful for Crystal Light. Water gets old sometimes.

Gardenburgers are good.

Sandwich Thins are just 100 calories, and they help you to eat smaller portions too.
