Hey! Guess what? The Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating (SSHE) Slim Down Challenge ended on May 15th. The results are on their page and all the contestants kicked butt! I came in 5th, but I didn't lose anything except weight and fat. I am so happy that SSHE picked me as one of their contestants and gave me such a great opportunity to show how nutrition and eating and food play such a HUGE role in our journeys to a healthy life.
My half marathon training seems to be going well! I did run Race 5 on Memorial Day and didn't do a sub 40, but I had run 11 miles the day before and my left knee seemed kind of wonky. I did rest it this week and I'll be running 12 miles this weekend. It's actually kind of exciting to get up in mileage :)
And then there's this blog... I haven't always been a consistent blogger and mainly it's because I #1) don't have time, and #2) don't want to have my posts feel forced. I like to have the words come to me and to write what I'm really feeling that could be inspiring for others who are struggling to get or stay healthy. Most days lately, it's just not in me. I've started a book blog with some of my friends and I love talking books so much more lately. I haven't decided to abandon this blog entirely yet. I just may not always be here posting after I've run a race or had some other awesome thing happen. I'm still very active on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram so you can find me there! I'll hold your hand and support any way that I can. I have
another product review to do too and will get that up as soon as I finish the sample they gave me.
So this was my quick check in. Life is good and uncomplicated and I'm still making progress. In fact, I just got some measurements done last week and I'll try to post the actual numbers soon. But I can tell you that I am now down to 25% bodyfat. I never imagined I'd be that far down in such a short time. Hard work pays off and I have had some awesome trainers.
Until next time!
