I am back from our trip from the Dominican Republic we had an amazing week, we couldn't have asked for better weather, food, drinks, and activities. Here's a link to the photo album
As for my weight I weighted myself when I got back and I gained 4 pounds. I'm still not a hundred percent on food but I'm back on track with the gym. We got home Thursday night and I worked out Friday, Ran a 5km race on Saturday, Played Volleyball on Monday and worked out today.
I felt so good about my 5km Race! I ran/walked it in 50 mins. I ran it three years ago at 54 mins. I can remember running/walking it the first time and it felt like it would never end. But this weekend I felt lighter and found it much easier! It also helps to have your boyfriend and friends cheering you along the way. I know one of my goals was to complete a 10km in an hour. But I think I am really going to focus on the 5km and improve my time. I have decided to run the Army Race in September and my goal is to complete it in 40 mins.
Here is a picture of me after completing the 5K
Here is a few things I have tried for the first time in the past few weeks.
1. Swam in the Atlantic Ocean
2. Ate Cow intestine ( I found that after of course and I won't be trying it again)
3. Tried Golf and loved it!
4. Went Dune Bugging
5. Shot an Air Gun/Pellet Gun
6. Tried Sugar Cane and of course I liked it!
7. Went to a new country (Dom Rep)
8. Bartered for the first time and was pretty good at it... but found it a bit annoying
and that's all I can remember but I think that a pretty good list! It's made me realize I enjoy trying new things even if makes me nervous at first. I enjoy testing/challenging myself it makes me feel empowered.
When I went to Mexico two year ago I was barely able to put the the seat belt on even after I had lost 30 pounds. Here is how the seat belt fits now..
I have a couple inches to spare!
