The almighty scale God loved me this morning...135lbs!!! Now, I'm officially "in" the final stretch with the last 10lbs left :) I am going to try and have Ray take some pics of what the "last 10lbs" actually looks like.
This morning, Ray and I hit the lake trail. I really focused on pace. Ray did try to "rush" me once, but I quickly told him to shut up and let me run ;-) The new songs I downloaded on my Ipod really helped keep me going strong. I RAN THE ENTIRE LAKE AND 1/2!!! When we got to the "end", I was like time check. He told me no, and I told him hey I wanna keep running so give me the time (wanted to make sure we'd have enough time to shower & pick up JP). He happily reported that it was only 1015am which meant we ran the 2.6 miles (1 time around) in about 26 minutes!! I think he was a little surprised that I was able to keep going. All I said was I'll go till I can't run anymore. Once again, he tried to "rush" me. I said hey I know the hills are coming so it'll tire me out soon enough. I made it to the other 1/2 of the lake which totaled the run at 3.3ish miles (walked the last 1/2 to finish) --FARTHEST YET!!! It really set in that I can RUN the WHOLE race. That's why it was so important for me to run with him but resist the urge to chase him. I just need to keep control of my pace, and then I CAN DO IT!!

This is my crazy journey to get back in shape and lose the last 11lbs. After being a gestational surrogate & enduring 88 days of bed rest (55 days spent on hospital bed rest at Johns Hopkins), I delivered S & B's healthy "twinkies" on August 6th 2011. Now, it's time to get down to business. Follow me, gripe/moan/whine on my exercise & diet routine to get back down to 125lbs (pre-pregnancy weight). It's definitely going to be a wild ride on the scale! Let's just hope my husband and 3 year old son can handle it!! HAHA!
