Yesterday, I pretty much had a perma-smile ALL day. Your comments? oh.my.gah. Thank you, so much. Truly. I had a moment in the car yesterday on the way home from Target. Where I literally just let myself truly reflect on how far I've come in the last year, and I cried. I don't think I've let myself really do that yet. I was just so filled with gratefulness. Not only am I someone who just lost the weight, but I'm getting fit. Something I never thought I'd be.
I let myself splurge (as *splurging* as Target can be) on some better running gear. Up until this point I've been wearing a hodge podge of things to run in, mainly my $5 walmart tights, that truly? Didn't do the trick in holding it all in.
So this? Is much better. I feel good.
I was floating yesterday. Literally. Between the blog comments, and then the instagram comments on the above photo using words like "skinny" and "hot". Um? Okay. I mean, those are not normally words in my vocabulary, but goodness gracious, did it make a girl feel good. Indeed.
I think the high of the day had me anticipating my run that evening so much. All the support. All the encouragement. I was pumped up and ready to run. And so last night? I completed my first ever 5K distance, which I guess means one thing---I'm ready for Saturday!!
So what if I'm not 'fast'--I ran the whole time!
When my run was done, I practically flew in the door to tell Declan with tears in my eyes that I DID IT! I did it! I can run a 5K! He was more than supportive. He just kept saying how proud he was of me and how far I've come since January. He's all "you're a real life story of success, babe"...he's so sweet, that man.
So this morning, I decided to weigh myself for the first time in weeks. As you know I've stopped counting points and doing weight watchers officially a month or so ago. I thought I had been maintaining pretty well. But, it turns out, I have lost another 2'ish lbs! I think I can attribute that to running. So this means my actual weight loss is 47lbs total. Fourty-Seven. Holy.
Then, I started writing down the names of those of you supporting me. And I was humbled.
And since you asked me to share my running playlist with you? I figured, why not? So what if I listen to
dirty music that pumps me up to run? Maybe it'll help motivate some of you, too. So here's my list. Of course, it's longer then needs be--but these are just some of the songs that help me to power through.
