What Did We Do?

I'm not sure what we did without Kennedy Kate
I'm sure we got a whole lot more done around the house
But life sure wasn't as sweet
I can tell you that
And she sure helps a lot :)

A Little Bit Focused

I haven't blogged a "run with me" post in the last few weeks so I am sorry if you haven't been able to run with me :) This weeks workout is as follows:

5 minute warm up walk
run 10 minutes
walk 1 and 1/2 minutes
run 10 minutes

I must say that I am enjoying the increased running minutes! I am actually able to get into a sort of zone and I feel stronger by the day. This Sunday I will be running in my first race since well fall 2009 crazy huh? I can't wait to run the Bun Run with A. Snell.

I know I need to post about Kennedy Kate's 3 month birthday but I just don't have the time at this time. After tonight we have 2 full days to finish a record month for'm a Little Bit Focused. I will tell you that I LOVE LOVE LOVE being Miss K's momma and I just think I was made for it.

Run with Me: Week 5

My friend Heather D has a wonderful blog called Raising Emery. She just bad a baby girl too! I love her idea of posting her post pregnancy weight loss weekly. So here are my stats as of today.

10.5 weeks pp (I will weigh in on Wednesdays starting this week.
Weight Loss this week: 1.8 pounds
Total weight loss to date: 34 pounds
Weight remaining: 18 pounds

This week's plan of action is to keep it up!

Week 5 running workout is:
5 minute warm up
run 6 walk 1 and 1/2 minutes repeat 3 times
5 minute cool down

I will run 4 times this week and add 2 days of Slim in 6 in there to start toning my muscles. I have a wedding to go to on the beach (YIKES) in less than a month!

Super Saturday

This day has been the best day i've had in a really long time! Not that other days have been bad. They just haven't been as good as today. We woke up and had Chick-fil-a breakfast burritos for breakfast and then KK and I were invited over to A. Snell's house for coffee on the porch. We so enjoyed our time with her!! We love Auntie Ashley so very much! When we got home I took Belley Brown (our chocolate lab Belle's nick name) on a 2.5 mile run. I was literally dragging her the last 5 minutes or so. She did a great job though.
View on our run
Then we headed to Seguin for a meeting and then over to my dads for a shrimp dinner and some fun in the sun! What a wonderful day so far!

Did you know that you can click on the "stats" button on your dashboard and see how many times each of your blog posts are read? I just figured this out today and am blown away that 84 people have already read the post that I wrote late last night. Now if only I could get some of you readers to post a comment :)

Run With Me: Week 4

How do you like my new blog look? Thank you Kreated by Kelsey!

This weeks running schedule is as follows:
Warm up: 5 minute walk
Work out: run 5 minutes walk 2 minutes repeat 3 times
Cool down: 5 minute walk
*remember to run 4-5 days this week*

I must admit that when I realized this weeks running time jumped from 3 minutes to 5 I was a bit intimidated. The first run of the week ended up being very challenging but felt so good mentally. I was able to set into a steady pace and felt very comfortable in my stride. With every run I feel stronger and am reminded of my love for the sport. Thank you Lord for the ability to run! I don't take it for granted!
