Day 99

Went to the gym after work today, did some weightlifting. Going to mix my training up between running & weightlifting. I'm still thinking about joining Curves at some point but we'll see if that ever happens or not.

My parents get here in a few days, I'm so excited!! Yes I'm still planning on working out while they're here it just might not be as much. I'm taking some time off from work and Charlie is taking some leave so we can show them some of the sights.

Nothing else new since yesterday, daily blogs = shorter blogs lol

2 days down, 98 days till Disney!!

Day 100

Let's see, what's new with me..... I've been working at my job for almost 2 months now and it's going really good. I'm much faster and I get pretty good hours so I'm happy about that. My shift varies from 7 or 8 in the morning to 1, 2, or 3 in the afternoon, and I always average at least 5 hours a day which equals to a 25 hour workweek (not bad).

One thing that hasn't been happening with me is working out. First I was so tired getting used to working and being on my feet that I didn't want to do anything. But I started to get used to that, however my feet continued to kill me. So I finally decided to just wear my workout shoes to work and it's made a huge difference in how my feet feel. Now at the end of the day my feet are tired, not screaming in agony. One of my paychecks coming up I'm going to buy another pair of these shoes so I can have separate work & workout shoes.

As I just said I haven't been working out, but that's going to change. You see a few months ago Charlie and I signed up for some races in Disney World in January. It's a whole weekend of races: Friday is a 5K, Saturday is a Half Marathon, and then Sunday the Disney Marathon. I'm only doing the 5k but Charlie is doing all three races!!!! I told him he was nuts lol. Doing the half & full is called the Goofy Marathon & a Half Challenge and that's why he's doing them both (he's doing the 5K to run with me, what a sweetie, still nuts but a sweetie lol)
Anyway you may have noticed my subject line 'Day 100,' that's because today is the 100th day till the race weekend. So it's time I get off my butt and get back into gear if I'm ever going to be ready for this race. I'm already starting off on a good foot, I changed into my workout clothes right after work today and went straight to the track where I ran/walked a mile in 17 mins in the rain (ran 2 laps and walked the other 2). So not bad considering it's now been almost 2 months since I've done any kind of workout.

I'm really excited for the race, it's going to be so much fun running through Disney (yes the races are run in the parks, in one of Charlie's races he'll be running right through Cinderella's castle, how cool!!). I'm thinking about wearing a costume and maybe I'll be able to convince Charlie to wear one with me (at least for the 5K). Won't say what I'm thinking yet cause it's going to have to take some planning, but if I can pull it off it's going to be awesome!! =))

Should be more blog posts now that I'm in training mode, can't guarantee daily ones but I'll update as often as I can.

1 day down, 99 to go!!
