Day 25
I decided yesterday that I want a fitness goal to work towards to get my butt motivated. I first thought I could run for a cause like strokes, MS, cancer, tumors, something that has or is affecting someone close to me. I looked into all of them and they all do full marathons 26.2 miles. I decided that I am going to run instead for me. I am going to sign up for a marathon either the weekend before my 30th birthday or the weekend after. There are 5k which is 3.1 miles at 2 different locations. The first marathon is called surf city usa and is in Huntington Beach, this is significant because it is the original beach trip location. The other is on catalina island and is alot more hills and incline. I am aiming for Surf City Usa on Feb. either 2nd or 3rd. I decided to be crazy and told Shawn about it. He is all in and wants to run with me. You run down the beach on the bike trails, down the pier, and through the main street of Huntington where all the shops are. I am getting names of anyone else who wants to join us. The entrance fee is $25.00 There are 2 reasons why I chose Feb. 1, It will be 30th b-day. 2, I would love to meet my goal weight by then. Last bonus it might actually be cool temp. wise. So let the training begin. YIKES!
I weighed in this morning at 195.2 I finally hit 21 pounds and can now officially get my new tattoo. Ok so it's not new it's just fixing the one I already have so please don't freak out people. I have a few people who are asking me to post new pics and I will. When I started I decided to do them every month. My 1 month is this coming Sat. So look for a new pic early next week. I took my before pics in my bra and undies so I don't know if I will actually post all my glory on here or not. Well I am off to try to be a Forrest Gump and start running.
