Confession Friday UPDATE and a Saturday SHOUT OUT

Sassy Glass Pendant

The dreaded WEEK 5, DAY 3 is history...
in the books... 
kicked to the curb... 
eatin' my dust... 
yesterday's news.  

Even threw in an hour pilates class when I finished just for grins.  
So what if I haven't moved more than 3 feet in any direction since I finished?  

I want thank you all for your kind words of encouragement and support (and Handsome Hubby for a very sweet text message).  I know it sounds like I ran a freaking marathon, but really as far as I'm concerned IT MAY AS WELL HAVE BEEN.  I will try not to get lazy sick  before I get to the end, so as not to disappoint all you awesome peeps.

And speaking of AWESOME PEEPS, meet my gorgeous friend Jules...

Taken on one of the THREE days we can actually wear a sweater AND a scarf here...

We have been friends for thirty years a LONG time... since we were giggly, goofy high school girlies and now we are just giggly, goofy grown-ups.  

ANYHOO, I happened to mention to her earlier in the week that I was facing down the 20 minute monster on Friday and she instantly piped up that she was going to come run with me... now, a twenty minute treadmill run is normally just a warm-up for Ms. P90X  but she wasn't feeling well and was sleep deprived and (despite my protests) she STILL drove 20 minutes to meet me at the gym at 8 a.m. and hopped on the treadmill next to me to cheer me on... and frankly, I am almost completely certain I might have cheated if not for her... and she did that dang pilates class with me, too. 

All I can say is I hope every single one of you have a least one friend like Jules, because really and truly, SHE ROCKS!

Guess what we did last night to celebrate with the Hubby's?


We had Skinny Margarita's, of course.

WOOOO!!! Congrats on getting through the run. :) Isn't it such a great feeling afterwards? Especially when you want to quit the entire time. :) :) Margaritas well deserved! -- Sea Marie

Loved this post!

We recently lost our twins when I was about 4 months pregnant, so I have all this baby weight left over and no breastfeeding and such to help melt it off. Physically, I want to be back in shape before we try again, and I have just been putting it off over and over again. I think I'm going to set up challenges for myself, as well. Your posts have definitely been a kick in the butt for me :)

Kudos on the kick butt friend and for not cheating on the treadmill!

I recently finished the Couch to 5K - yes I did it!!!

And then a couple of weeks later I really ran a 5K - it was something else.

I love the Couch to 5K program though. Before starting the program in May I had never ever in my life run before. Of course now I am coming off a 10 day vacation lay off and am dreading my first run back - I think tomorrow is the day! Fingers crossed it is not too painful.
