My Glittery TOMS!

Today is my first day back to the gym in almost 2 weeks. I was sick the first week and last week I helped with VBS at my church. I actually missed it! I was still trying to keep up with C25K, but I like doing the extra elliptical and weights.  I know if I can shed more pounds then the running will come easier! I did 2.2 miles (30min) on the elliptical. I then worked my arms and core on some of the machines. It felt good! :)

After working out with the hubby, we went and ate at Pei Wei! I had the Sweet & Sour chicken with brown rice. It was delicious!

For dinner we decided to go and get some fresh hand made sushi from H.E.B. I got the Philadelphia roll and Cody got the California roll. I love cream cheese in sushi! It was yummy :)
When we got home, a box was laying on the front porch! It was my TOMS!! Aren't they beautiful!!!
I love them! Cody got them for me as a "just because" present. Isn't he sweet :)

I'm looking forward to finishing Week 2 Day 3 soon of C25K and then moving on to Week 3! I may be stuck on Week 3 for a couple of weeks. The idea of running 3 min. straight scares me! I guess I will see soon how it goes! :)

Cowtown Half Recap!

On Sunday, February 24, 2013 I ran my first official Half Marathon!  Before the race started, I met up with these fellow MRTT ladies!  Pic from How My World Runs It was freezing cold (yes 33 degrees is freezing to this Texan! haha) and I was hoping it wouldn't warm up too much because I run so much better in the cold. I ended up wearing my jacket the whole time and was completely comfortable! We had a wind advisory in affect and I think the wind made it even cooler. This was also my first time to run with my new haircut and with my hair down! Didn't bother me at all! Short hair for the win! :) I was in the very last Corral to start. Yes, I know I'm slow. Get Over it!<---Saw that saying on several shirts throughout the race!  Looks like I need one! haha :) I had to post this pic, because I have no idea what I was doing, nor remember even taking it! Haha! About 20 min before the race, I headed to the porta potty's. Yeah, I should have

Starting over with something new.

Way back in 2012 I started running...for reals... I ran my first Virtual Half Marathon in June and then in the Fall, I started meeting up with a Moms RUN This Town friend 3-4 days a week to walk/run 3-4 miles with our kiddos in the stroller. We started training for the Cowtown Half Marathon and I started dropping weight. By December, I had lost 35 lbs (this was total since having Sophie, not just in 2-3 months) and I looked the best I had looked in a very long while. Then I ran the Cowtown Half in February of 2013, hurt my hip, stopped running, walked the Dallas Rock N Roll Half a month later and then stopped running for good until August of 2013. I then started trying to pick it up a bit here and there while also participating in Stroller Strides.  The thing is...I started gaining weight once I stopped running. Didn't matter if I was doing stroller strides. I just kept getting bigger. First it was just 10 lbs. I kept it at that 10 lb weight gain from August until January
