A Better Me, Week 25

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  I love being able to celebrate my Irish heritage.  I'm a proud 1/8 Irish-Canadian 365 days a year; but on St. Paddy's day, my blood runs a little greener.

I'm happy to post that I was down 1.6 lbs at this weeks weigh-in.  That makes 53.4 lbs total so far!

I've also put my 50 lb reward into action.  I told myself when I lost 50 lbs, I could get the tattoo I've been wanting for 17 years.  Last week, my sister-in-law and I had a consultation and we're both booked in for tattoos on April 5.  I've put my deposit down, it's non-refundable, and I'll be inked soon!  I can't wait.  I'm getting the Twingles' names on my left foot.  It's going to hurt something fierce; but no pain, no gain!

I've also continued with the C25K challenge.  I started Week 3 last night.  That one was rough.  Bumping my 1.5 minute runs to 2.5 minutes doesn't seem like a big jump; but when you're not used to it, it hurts!  I made it through by psyching myself up before every run.  "You got this, you can do it, it's only 2.5 minutes", that type of thing.  My plan is to do day two tomorrow after Guides, so I'll let you know if it gets any easier.

Hope you have a great week.  Thanks for reading about my #weightlossjourney to a #betterme.
