Day Eighteen

How do I describe today?  It was very very full.  And there was so much good in it....  I guess when I was "in the furnace of affliction", it's days like this that I missed the most.  I got a lot of work done, laughed A LOT with my co-workers, had a great run, and enjoyed wonderful dinner, fellowship, and Bible study with some of my besties.  

Day Eighteen 146lbs
I found out that the route I've been running is not three miles.  I measured it today.  It's actually three and a half miles!!  Mary, that brings my total miles in the past six days up to 17.5.   Woot!  Woot! I'm so proud of me!  Even though I'm still at 146, I feel strong.  I feel healthy.  I feel good about myself.  And that's a super accomplishment.

  1. I'm so impressed! That's awesome! Isn't running like this super-duper-makes-a-girl-feel-strong pill?! My dream is to run a marathon. Next fall or something. I'm just praying I won't get injured before I have the $ to get a new pair of running shoes (once I buy my vehicle in a mo. or two), as the pair I'm running in, I purchased when I was 17.

    1. Yes! It makes me feel so good. If you decided to run a marathon this fall, let me know. We could run it together. :)

  2. So proud of you Ashley! As far as my weight loss journey, I hiked Sunday, Worked out to Jillian Michaels on Tuesday, and walked a mile on Wednesday. I have lost about 10 pounds so far since January.

  3. Yes, that would be so cool if we could run one together! :-) I stepped on the scale today...no change since last weekend, but I KNOW I've lost inches. Losing INCHES (vs. lbs.) has become my new mantra. ;-) Oh, and please don't read the time stamp -- I have bad weekend habits, such as adding way too many books to my goodreads.com "to read" list in the MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.
