Where I am fitness-wise

Last night my wonderful husband decided we needed to meet up with a group of local runners for a social 6:30 100 degree heat....good idea, right??? Not really. We didn't have anyone to watch the baby, so we took him with us. Usually when the sun is bright I just walk with the stroller backwards to keep the kiddo happy. I didn't this time and about a half mile into it, he was DONE, well done and very red (it faded and thank goodness I applied liberal amounts of sun block on him). We ended up at playing in the fountain until the other runners came back to the pub.

My current level of running fitness is only about a 13:00 -13:30 pace for 2-2.5 miles. I don't even think I can run a 5K right now. This evening it kept looking like it was going to storm, so I didn't go out. I am really regretting that now : (

The "before" picture

I can't believe I am about to put a picture of me in a bikini on the internet for people to see; but it must done. Sorry for any retina damage or nightmares that might result from viewing this picture.

There I am, July 2012 at 192 pounds.

Pictures of me...

Wanting to be an "after"

annnnnnnnnndddd once again I am blog failure or I guess the word would be blogfure. I think I posted last time in January. Not much has changed. I was doing really good with my exercise and diet-then summer happened, then the intense heat happend, and then laziness happened. So, here I am trying to find a balance between being a mom, wife, teacher, proper nutrition and exercise. I am not registering for any more races, because I don't have the money to fail. I am running/walking a little bit more. My diet is my big hurdle; I really believe that if I can get the eating under control then the exercise will come naturally.
I finally updated my profile picture, because that is how I look now. The pink jacket/running medal picture was taken in February of 2010 and I do NOT even resemble that person. Today I weigh 190 something (I didn't weigh in this morning because I am trying to break the habit of daily weigh-ins) and I took a picture of myself in a bikini. I don't want to frighten anyone yet,  but I am going to upload it and post it.

In a few months I am hoping that I can post a better "after" picture and by this time next year I will look like the woman in the pink jacket again.
