A few of you said that you wanted to see a recent picture so here you go! This was from our date night last weekend when my parents where here. Just think, I have lost another 2.6 lbs since this was taken! What a great feeling this is knowing with each week, I am another step closer to becoming my very best! 

I was super pleased with week one of my program. I am seeing a side of me that I have not seen in YEARS and it feels amazing. My husband is in shock and is constantly complimenting me on my progress, every girls dream right! :) I can see that 2011 is shaping up to be a very good year!  I still have about 3.8 lbs that I would like to lose this month and I think I can get there but it is going to take more hard work, but I am ready to put in the effort needed. 

This weekend my run was AWESOME but I did a very stupid thing. I learned the hard way the importance of stretching before a run and starting off slow.  I started off WAY too fast and pulled my hamstring. I started my run in town center and as I was running through the main area I was thinking about how the Ironman will be here in May and the finish of the race was where I was running. I began to get emotional thinking about this as it truly is a dream of mine and I found myself running far too fast for that first mile. I slowed my pace down and ended up with a 10:06 mm but it was too late, my little hammie was pulled! 

Throughout the run there was a burning and tightness which was painful, yet I could still run. I still managed to PR somehow, but today I am paying for it big time! My leg HURTS! I am going to take today and tomorrow off and focus on stretching and yoga. Rodney Yee's Strength Yoga DVD is an excellent way to get a good workout in while resting my leg. I do plan on walking today for a few miles with Kayla but at a VERY slow pace. This is just so my leg does not get stiff. Because I am taking a few days off my eating needs to be LIGHT!! I will be focusing on fresh juices, teas and bulking up my meals with Chia seeds and other forms of fiber where I can. Who knows, maybe with a few days of rest the scale will keep on coming down!

You do look fantastic! It is so inspiring to see that exercise and eating healthy is an ongoing way of life for you even when you already look so great!! Inspires me that when I finally get to goal I have to keep going instead of falling into old and unhealthy habits.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I don't know what you looked like before your loss, but girl you look HOT now! (I'm pretty sure you looked hot then too!)

I'm sure your hubby is very complimentary. :)

Going to look around a little....
