Weight Update #11

With 5 days left before Little Man's first birthday, I am proud to say I am only 5.4 lbs.away from my pre-pregnancy weight.

And considering that last week's weigh in was somewhat of a bust at only 1.2 lbs.

This week's 3.2 lbs. is a significant pick-me-up.

Just enough for me to blow over this holiday weekend!

As if that weren't enough excitement for one day, last night I ran my longest run to date - 3.9 miles with my awesome friend Carrie

Here's the funny thing - my goal was 3, but when we rounded 2.6, Carrie said, "One more loop would put us at 3.9, you ready to try it?"

I totally wasn't, but she insisted we could slow down if we needed to....

So off we went.

And I felt fine the entire time.

I was expecting our time to slow down alot with that last mile, but we managed to maintain the exact pace I was keeping with my other runs - 10:06. (It helps that we ran our first mile at 9:30!  HOLLA!!!)

And my legs feel great today! 

This is why running partners are so awesome.  I totally would have let myself quit at 3.

One more thing just to get everyone inspired this holiday-eating-weekend....

I officially donned my first pair of size 8 PANTS yesterday. 

No-give-pants, too.

They fit!

No wiggling,

No squirming.

No jumping.

No tying-hair-loops-through-the-buttonholes-to-make-them-work necessary. (Don't pretend like you've never done it!)

It's a good feeling.

Tonight's the debut of the size 8 dress! 

And I can't wait!

Congratulation on the 3.2 and 3.9! I can't run the save my life-literary...If someone were chasing me to kill me I'd probably have a heart attack and die within the first 1/4 mile. I'm pathetic. But, I'm also a former smoker so my lungs have taken a beating. Anyway...that was to much about me- Congrats to you!
