Lose It Big

From losing to living

Still Here

I have not updated this blog in a while. I don’t really have an excuse other than I am just lazy.

Last week I finished my third race. It was a little over 4.5 miles and I ran it completely with my wife (brownie points). I was a pretty easy run with very little elevation changes but it was packed with runners. There were over 15,000 people that ran. Since it was such good weather in Indiana on Thanksgiving, everyone that registered actually showed up. Although I was all set to wear my long tights, it was warm enough to wear shorts. Whew, saved from embarrassment again.

I am totally into my kettlebell classes. I think I am getting stronger and thicker but, I also have added some pounds. I have not taken any measurements and I am not real too happy with what I see in the mirror. I am going to stick with my extra insulation for the winter and be ok with it. I really haven’t changed the way I eat but, I cheat a lot more than I should. I really meant to post my progress pictures and measurements during my Kettlebell Bootcamp. I have about a month to go and I promise I will post some of my insulated self-pictures at the end. And with that I will leave you with breaking news, we have all been doing it wrong…

      Thanks! Although I haven’t posted much, I still keep my eye on your blog. I am glad you are doing well and you are an inspiration to me as well as all the ladies that should be reading your blog.

    Way to go on your race. Its always nice to have someone to run with. 🙂

      I like the travel to and from the race and sometimes during the race is nice to run with someone but, sometimes it’s nice to just go at my speed. I think it’s good to go half and half. It’s a good thing we ran together though. It was crowded and I would have not found my car if it were not for her.

    Congratulations! My boyfriend and I just completed our very first “couples” 5K over the weekend and I managed to beat my old time, but it was a huge a wake up call for me once I crossed the finish line. I’ve clearly lost motivation in the past few months and have packed on “love” pounds, but I’m getting back in the game. I’m going to Lose it Big. …..Healthy Journey!

      Congrats to you and your bf. I actually need to get back in the game too. I haven’t been exactly living up to my blog’s name. I really need to stop those unhealthy snacking habits. I guess I need some sort of motivation to lose my “love” handles again.

    Wahoo for the race! I think I’ll start using dish soap, too. 😉
