Growing Smaller: Slow Going

Anyone who manages to lose weight over the holidays should be praised! I am NOT one of those people.  I started December doing really well, but then came Christmas celebration after Christmas celebration, New Years, more Christmas, laziness, etc. that managed to undo all of the good.  I finally managed to get back in gear about 2 weeks ago.  I can say I lost 4 pounds in those 2 weeks. That puts me at 204, still shy of the elusive One-derland, but progress nonetheless. Plus, I finally have some big plans in the works.

I have finally chosen a new race to train for.  With how cold this winter has been, I am glad I didn't try to train for an early spring one.  We are going to do the Color Run in July. Yes, WE! Jimmy had agreed to do it with me. I am really excited to have a training buddy! Official training program will start in April.  As for the next 2 months, I am not giving myself a specific goal. I just want to focus on getting as healthy as possible and losing weight.  I know I will make it to One-derland in the next 2 months and you will all hear about it when I do.  Thanks again for all your support!

On a separate random and funny note, I went to the mall yesterday to get a new laptop battery.  Because of Thursday's storm the parking lot was compacted with snow so parking was a bit of a bear since you couldn't see the lines. I found a good lines of cars are parked.  When I came out I found this.
That is my car in the middle, parked in.  After a little bit of panicking, I walked back in to find mall security.  Their office was on the other side so I opted to call them instead.  I am not sure what they could have done, but luckily, the owner of the SUV that parked me in walked out just after I got off the phone.  She was a sweet little old lady that saw me by my car and said, "oh, is that a problem?" Well, it was, but at least it wasn't for long. 


  1. That is all such awesome progress! Keep up the great work!! And I'm glad Jimmy is doing the race with you. It's always a lot more fun knowing you'll have someone with you :) Plus, I hear any color run like that is a blast!
    And oh my goodness about the parking lot thing! I'm glad she moved relatively quickly. But really? How could she not tell it was blocking a car in? I guess ignorance is bliss ;)

    1. Thanks! I am pretty excited for the race and have some fun/a little crazy things in mind for it. I will share those once we get closer!
