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 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!
