Checking in – 6 Weeks


I convinced the kids to do the Turkey Trot with me this year. Freezing cold and early but we got out there and did it! The last 3 years I have run this on my own. Today there was very little running by the girls and I. The boys ran ahead and had some great exercise. The girls and I plugged along at a good walking pace. Laura was willing to jog a bit and we would set goals for ourselves. I am so proud of all of them. The Turkey Trot was actually 4.2 miles. That is a long way for them. Then add walking home and we hit 4.75 miles this morning.  IMG_6285 IMG_6303  IMG_6313

After the Turkey Trot and walking home. 4.75 miles total.



The smallest part of my waist. Several inches lost!!! My smallest ever was 29.5 inches.


No real change in weight in 2 weeks. I am trying not to get discouraged. I was 23.4 pounds heavier just 6 weeks ago so my body needs to adjust. I am working hard on toning so the flab is shrinking and getting tighter.  Also my calorie intake has been a bit low so my body probably went into starvation mode so I have to be patient and figure out what I need to do to see the numbers drop again.


6 wks jeans

The exciting news…

I can actually put on and do up my favorite jeans again. YIPPEEE! I have a good size muffin top and they just might split out if I sit in them BUT they can do up!!! I hope I can wear them comfortably by New Years, we’ll see.

    I am really impressed that you have your young girls going already on fun events that keep them active. It's a great inspiration, and a perfect example. My kids are about to follow your great example.
