Still Shrinking.....

I'm still here, I'm still working out and following my meal plan, still seeing success little by little!  Total of 58lbs lost so far!

In my last blog, I told you about my New Year's Resolution, dropping the diet pop.  That resolution has been kept!  I make 2 pitchers of ice tea a day, regular black tea and passion tea, both sugar free.  I am really enjoying tea now, of course still drinking lots of water!  I've also discovered coffee.  I really needed an extra boost of caffeine that I was missing from the pop, coffee has filled that need and I'm almost starting to like it.  1 or 2 cups a day, that's all, definitely don't need a new addiction.

Training:  I'm in week 4 of training for a couch to 5k.  I'm going to run a 5K at the Big Run for the One at Big Ticket Festival  June 20, 2013.  Hope you can join us!  (shhhh, don't tell anyone, but I think I may actually LIKE running, who would have knew!)

I've been learning all kinds of new exercises and ways to work out.  I'm up to doing snatches with 30 lb weights, pretty cool considering I started with just 5 lbs.  I'm really amazed that our bodies can learn to adapt and change so much.

Feedback:  I have been getting great feedback from people who haven't seen me in a while.   I'll be honest, it's a little embarrassing!   Especially when it sounds like, "Oh my gosh, you aren't HUGE anymore!"  Wow, thanks for that.  LOL.  Apparently I've also inspired a few people to get in better shape.  That's encouraging to hear, probably more so than "oh my gosh, you're not HUGE anymore!"
