Girls on the Run 5K

The Girls on the Run program is so empowering for young girls.  This year I got to take my niece with me.  I was amazed at how far she could run without stopping.  I was the one who held her back!! We ran about 2.5 miles of it, then I had to take a break and run/walk the rest of the way.

I will have to say that being 30 lbs. lighter, really helped me with my running.  I just started back at Orange Theory about two weeks ago, after I hit my goal weight, and really didn’t expect to be able to run as far as I did.

BTW, I got my cute Sherpa Sweater at my favorite boutique in Rowlett!  Girlfriends is such a cute store! Definitely stop in if you are ever in Rowlett!!

Wedding fun

We went to a beautiful wedding last night at Chandler’s Gardens in McKinney.  It is a tree farm, as well as wedding venue.  The beautiful trees served as a gorgeous backdrop to get married! I’d never been to a wedding reception in a tent, but it was very beautiful!!

Now that I’ve hit my goal weight, I was worried about fitting into any of my clothes.  Luckily, I found this dress in my closet that fit ok and had sleeves.  My husband had to keep his pants up with a really tight belt.  First world problems, I know!  But good ones to have when you’re over fifty!! 

Reunion outfit

I had so much fun at my 35th high school reunion!  Everyone looked amazing!!And it was one of the best ones we have had over the years.  I found the cutest leopard sweater at Little Tipsy Boutique in Rockwall. It has the cutest back with a strip of material across the back.  I wish I would have gotten a photo of it, but they have one in the link.  I also got these cute over the knees boots there that I could actually pull up.  They didn’t say they were wide calved boots, but they had to have been!  I got the jeans at Ross for like $15.  I thought it was the perfect comfortable reunion outfit!

I almost made it to my goal weight in time for the reunion.  I made it the week after.  Now I have to decide whether or not to keep losing or move to the maintenance phase of the program!

Air Fryer

My husband and I are on a new diet that is really working for both of us.  So far, after 11 weeks, we are down a total of 68 lbs.  I’m down 26 and he’s down 42!  We are hoping that the weight loss will lead to less medications.  We’ll find out about that on Thursday.  One of the things that we are doing is using an air fryer to cook our lean and green meals.  I love this air fryer because it’s SOOOO easy to cook great food with it.  I cooked this salmon in 10 minutes.  All I did was get Salmon, sprinkle some Ms. Dash on it, and turn it on for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.  Bam! The Lean part of my meal is complete!! I highly recommend this air fryer.  It’s really easy to use and cleans up easily too!
