Yesterday I ran another mile for my current Wellness Challenge. I did it in 8 minutes 56 seconds.
I am really proud of myself for getting better and being stronger. My friends and I are doing the Couch to 5K program, except we do each week twice. Now that we are in week 5 things are a little different so we do each day twice.
Today we had to run 8 minutes walk 5 then run 8 again. I just did my mile at the beginning of our 8 mile run and ran until I finished it. The second 8-miles were so much harder. But next monday we'll do it again and then Wednesday and Friday of next week we will be jogging for 20 minutes straight...no walking allowed.
I am a little scared of doing this, but excited too. Today was the first work-out that I felt sick afterwards. Which I know isn't exactly something you should be shooting for, but it is good to know that I really pushed my body to the limit.
On the bonus side I started this week weighing 150 pounds. I had been that for a couple weeks and I guess now is when my body is ready to get past that plateau and lose more weight because this morning I was 146.6. It is strange to think that I might actually get to 140 by the time these next 7 seven weeks are over.
Also, as I was cutting Morgan's hair today I told him how I thought it would be fun to once I reach 140 (or lower, I haven't decided for sure) but to cut my hair OFF and have a total make-over. I had a pixie-type cut before which I really liked and Morgan said that he really liked it too and had encouraged me to cut it that short. So I may be cutting off all of my hair in the near future.

|I could do something like this...|

|Maybe I'll do something a little longer like this.|
|Or something super short, like this.|
