TWO POUNDS!!  I’m down two whole pounds and I successfully squeezed into my pre-preggo jeans.  Whoop Whoop!!!  #Nonscalevictory

Okay,  so aside from the progress that I’ve seen with my weight, I’m very pleased with the overall takeaway with this program.  In just four, short weeks, I’ve gone from hating and barely able to knock out a single pushup from my knees, to actually enjoying them and moving into a full range of motion – still from my knees, mind you.  I can feel my core muscles starting to take shape once again and my arms, back and shoulders are becoming more and more sturdy and strong – which is so important for a mom toting around two little people.

 Over the weekend, I ran our annual Gasparilla 5k Stroller Roll.  It was a perfect day for a race.  We brought both kids with the double stroller.  I had intended on running with both of them, but at the last minute, I left baby H with my hubby on the sidelines.  V had a gout flare up and wasn’t feeling up to racing, so I took advantage and left my precious cargo with him.  Rossi and I raced past at least a hundred or more people walking the 5k from the previous heat.  It wasn’t easy, but it sure was fun.  Rossi was yelling “On the left” from the jogging stroller.  We seriously had to bob and weave through a sea of walkers (not the zombie kind).  I ran pretty hard with that double stroller too.  I maintained around a 9:30 pace pretty much the whole way through, but let my daughter out towards the end so she could run through the finish line with me, so I slowed down quite a bit once she was on foot.  Our official chip time was 32:02   And I can’t wait to see our finisher pics.  She was such a trooper and got so excited to cross the finish line.  I’m hoping we got a couple memorable shoots for our race album.  GRW15 GRW15 Family PIc  How was your week?

  1. Awesome! I love the look of Gasparilla and I hope to be able to run the 10K or half one of these days.

    No races this weekend, but I’ll be in Orlando for BDR!

    Yes, I’ve raced with little man. Never in a stroller, because I wasn’t running when he was stroller age, but we have done a bunch of fun runs and we did a 5K together in December. It’s the best.
