I'm frustrated. I shouldn't be. I've had some killer accomplishments this year. I'm frustrated because the scale isn't moving. It won't budge! What's the deal?!?!?! I have tried to ignore this. I have tried to find the mindset that it isn't about the number anymore. My pants are looser. My back rolls are going away. I can run farther and faster, but it doesn't seem to matter as much as that damn number. What are we doing to ourselves here?
I think I am going to put the scale away. Then I am going to (RE)commit fully to my new healthy lifestyle. I'm VBD, I've just been slacking a little bit.
I'm also thinking about quitting WW. I think it might be time to start tracking calories.

Walk the bleachers.
Run up the stairs, walk down, run to the next staircase. Complete the circuit twice.
Lunges on the bleachers
Run up the stairs, skipping one step, walk down the stairs. Complete the circuit twice.
Calf lifts on the bleachers
Run up the stairs sideways, walk down. We went around once, then it again with the other leg.
Squats on the bleachers.
Push ups on the bleachers.
Dips on the bleachers.
Run back to the Studio.
Abs on stability balls with weights.
Oh man! Can we say cardio? Running those stairs was killer! My heart rate was up up up the whole time and my legs were Jell-o. I actually couldn't make it all the way through some of the runs cause my heart rate was so high. I can't wait to try again. I think this is the cardio I need. I'm going to head over to the high school next week a couple times to work on this.
My 5k race is on Saturday! I'm getting excited. :) I think I'm getting sick though, so I am doing all I can to keep that bug from hitting too hard. I'm going to shoot for a time better then 33 minutes. I can totally do that! Right? Of course, right.
Walmart has these great Danskin workout tanks and t-shirts for $4! I bought 3...white, pink and blue. Yay for new workout clothes.
Tomorrow's Goal: Eat a good healthy pasta dinner and go to bed early so I can be all that I can be for my race.
Don't forget the Blog Hop hosted by Lucy!

I spent the weekend with my husband and our friends at my parents house in Heber. It was a beautiful weekend and I was sad to come home. Friday night we went to Cafe Galleria in Midway and had the best pizza (Goat cheese and roasted pepper pizza with a pear and gorgonzola cheese salad) The weather on the patio was perfect, there was live music, good food and great company. Then we went back to my parents house and had a fire in the backyard, talked, watched the stars, then went to bed. Saturday, Sam woke me up by throwing a pillow at me. :P We sent the boys back to Cafe Galleria for fresh baked bagels. So good, but can we say carb overload? Then we went to Sundance and hiked to Stewart Falls. It was an easy hike and really pretty! There were a couple of steep hills so I really pushed myself to get and keep my heart rate up. After that was some fly fishing on the very crowded Provo River. (Father's day weekend = Lots of people fishin'.) Sunday was nice and relaxing. I was sad to come home.

My goal was to break in my new shoes. I totally did! I did my 5k in 35:22, shaving 2 minutes off of my last time. ALSO, I ran the ENTIRE thing! That is a first for me. So, YAY! (I was worried that I overdid it and that I would be sore today but I'm not. At all.)
The concert last night went REALLY well. It's such a relief to have it be over.
Today's Goal: I have to go to a horse show in the rain. I don't want to. I'm tired. It's going to be cold (It is June, right?) and muddy. My goal is to not let myself get grumpy. And, to stay away from the junk food being sold at the food stand I am helping run.
Happy Weekend everyone.
