I am excited to say I have 3 races registered for! I have a 4th on the maybe list, but I am waiting to hear if a few friends want to run it together.
I have registered for:
May 26, Hartford, CT
Team Cupcake Kelly’s if you want to join.
I am running with one of Nick’s cousins and persuaded Nick to run as well.
July 28, Amesbury, MA
My trainer’s fiancé put together a team, and I can’t pass up a fun run. I did the Spartan Race at this location and I don’t love it, in fact I kind of hate it. However, I was at my lowest weight pre-pregnancy when I raced then and I wasn’t as dedicated about getting my workouts in. I want to see how much I have improved with this course.
September 22, Willington, CT
A few friends from CT are running this race, so I decided to join them. I have done a Spartan Race so I sort of know what to expect, I hope. Like I said, I can’t pass up a fun run.
My goals are to have fun and for the MA Color Run, to PR my previous time. I also want to find an October 5k, to PR at.
In my race recap I was pretty down on myself about my performance, but I have to remind myself that my body is now a completely different machine than it was 2 years ago.
In general, I have been feeling bad about my body and weight loss. I eat really well, I am always within my calorie allotment and I have been working really hard.
I forgot to do measurements last month so we will count this as month 3 check in.
Check out my 1st month update
Weight – down 14 pounds which brings me to a total of 21 pounds!
Right Arm – down .78, total down .78 inches
Hips – down 1.18 inches total of 3.08 inches
Waist – down .4 inches, total of 3.5 inches
Right Calf – down 1 inch, total of 1.6 inches
Right Thigh – down .5 inches, total of 1 inch.
Seriously, I don’t get why I am so down on my self. I am clearly doing awesome. I will post pictures of the end of February and April (since both will have me very dressed up, and won’t be iPhone photos) just to see the difference.
It’s clear that my upped running, Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp and increased intensity of workouts with my trainer are paying off. My next goal is to lose 25 pounds by my sister-in-law’s wedding. From these stats it will be a little less than 3 months. I think this goal is definitely within my reach!
