Getting Stuff Done

Have you entered our T-Shirt Giveaway yet??? Entries are open through tonight!!

This week was a little chaotic for me (Julie). I had some appointments throughout the week that interfered with my regular workouts and I had family visiting for the Memorial Day weekend. We ATE like there was no tomorrow, so I'm a little scared to get on the scale. They just left about 1/2 hour ago, so I'm waiting until tomorrow to see how much damage has been done. (Yes, I'm a coward). This week I also participated in the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge, which is a 3.5 mile race through Chicago. It is a run/walk, so I did it as a non-competitive runner with two fantastic ladies. We tried to run a bit of it, but ended up walking due to it being SO CROWDED we had a hard time navigating the crowd moving at a jog. We finished in 54 min, which is fine by us. I hope that, by the end of summer, I'll be running this sort of thing, but this one was just for fun. Tomorrow I'm back on the wagon with the running and the eating! I'm starting at Week 5, Day 2 again and hoping to move forward form there.

This week, Emily says....

This week has been pretty good for running, but not so good on the diet... I decided to only repeat one day of Week 4 and then moved on to Week 5. On Memorial Day, I did the third day of Week 5 - running for 20 minutes without stopping! I was SO proud of myself when I got done! From here, it's only a short leap to running the full 5K! There's a forecast for steamy hot weather this week, so I'm trying to go for my run earlier in the morning that I have been these past two weeks.

How about you? How are your goals and projects coming?
