all the other kids with pumped up kicks

A quick like blip on GOALS before I get into my work outs for last week. As most of us are, I’m a Biggest Loser fan and after having watched this season, I have decided to go a little more lax on my weight loss goals. While I don’t weigh as much as Danni started at (I WAS TOTALLY #TEAMDANNI THE WHOLE TIME!!), seeing how she looked weighing in at 137, I’m rethink my goal weights.

My goal for the year was 120. After seeing the weigh loss of previous contestants, I have figured out that I’m not that itty bitty person that I thought I was. I’m slightly wide in the shoulders and REALLY wide in the hips and boo-tay, and that’s ok.

I went to the CDC website and looked at the BMI chart with my height and weight and my current BMI is 30.1 which is considered obese. For my height (5’2”) my BMI should be 18.5-24.9 or 101 lbs to 136 lbs. For this reason I have changed that to 135. I don’t NEED to be stick thin. I don’t want to be stick thin. I want to be HEALTHY and if I look and feel good at 140, well that’s where I’ll stop. If/when I get to 135, I’ll reassess on if I want to lose more or start on a maintenance program.

We shall see. :)

Mon - 3/11 – None
Tue – 3/12 - None
Wed - 3/13 – 2.70 miles; C25K W9 D2; Pace 13:57; Calories – 350
Thu – 3/14 – 1.93 miles; C25K W9 D3; Pace 17:57; Calories - 187
Fri   – 3/15 - None
Sat-   3/16 – None
Sun – 3/17 – None

As you can see, there was a pretty good day, right next to a really bad day along with a lot of NONE going on last week. My total calories burned for this week was 537 and the total time was 1 hour and 20 minutes. My goal calories were 1950 and my goal time was 5 hours and 35 minutes. So I did HORRIBLE in that sense!

One thing that I try NOT to do is to wait until later in the week to get moving. The reason is, is because I should get in 2 workouts in the beginning of the week so that I already have those under my belt so if I slack a day, I’m not hustling to get workout’s in. This week is a perfect example of why.

On Thursday, when I went to the track, the pain in my legs was just too much. Never did I think that my last day of C25K would be WALKING…. Slowly at that! After I got over my disappointment, I decided to make a trip to Phidippides, a shoe store that specializes in athletic shoes. The man that helped me was awesome. He chose 6 or 7 different shoes and told me to take to the pavement with them. After discussing all of the shoes with him, we decided on one. It was an overall GREAT experience. I am SUPER excited to hit the pavement and I’m hoping for some GREAT results for next week!

These are the shoes that I went with:

I’m not sure if I mentioned this in a previous post but as you know I finish the C25K program on Thursday. Since my goal before doing a 10K is to jog a whole 5K, I am RE-doing C25K and focusing on being able to do the jogs at a consistent speed for the “jog” intervals. For the first round of C25K my stats were:

So far this week, my stats are growing in leaps in bounds (thanks to my new kicks!) and I can’t wait to report back next week!

Oh and here’s some random cuteness. :)



  1. Love those new tennis shoes! And I am happy to hear that you've adjust your goal weight and that you are sticking to the higher end of it! I think the goal weights are set too low, but I'm not a doctor, so my opinion doesn't count there. My chart shows that I should be between 130 and 150. Uh... If I hit 160 and I'm happy, that's where I'll stay! 130..on me??? No freaking way! I would look sick! At least I think I would..who knows.

    Great job revamping the goals! You've got this!

    Team Danni!!!! Woop Woop! BTW, tomorrow morning on 101.1 she'll be on there talking about her journey! Heard it announced this a.m.!!

  3. First of all, you look great already so any weight you lose will just be icing on the cake! I agree that 120 is tiny and 135 is a great goal!! I think the lowest I will ever get will be 150 (if I'm lucky) it's just that everyone has such a different body style it's hard to determine what you should weigh vs what looks great on you! I'm proud of you for all the hard work you have done and are still doing!


  4. Love the new shoes! I sat and cried watching that finale, they are all so amazing and have obviously worked their tails off! Keep up your hard work!!!


  5. Thanks y'all! i am LOVIN the new shows and can't wait to hit the pavement today!

    i agree that until you are happy with the way you look, you don't know what looks good on you! i do like having a number but when i get to that... "daaaaaaaaaaaaaaammmmmmmmnnnnnnnnn girl!" moment, then i will know i hit my number!

  6. DAMMMMM GIRL IS RIGHT! Thats what were going for! So exciting! We Love the kicks! Can't wait to see you RUN FOREST RUN!!! XOXOXO:D
