Here are the goals as a refresher:
In one month, I have knocked out 4 goals. This is WAY more than I ever could've hoped for. I'm so excited!! There is a slight chance I might even be able to cross one more off my list by the end of the month. I am supposed to hike Table Rock tomorrow, but the weather looks kind of sketchy and just a few weeks ago they had 17 climbers get struck by lightning up there so I'm not willing to take that risk if the weather doesn't cooperate. I'm still hoping that a miracle happens and the weather breaks and we are able to go. I WANT to go so bad! Last year my family all went without me because I was too out of shape to go. Talk about a sad situation. I refuse to let that be me again this year. Come on weather...give me a break!!

So, you can see above that I ran a 5K yesterday (with my hubby and no stopping to catch my breath or walking!!!) and then today I weighed in at exactly 160 lbs. At the start of this blog, I weighed in at exactly 168 lbs which brings me to exactly 8 lbs lost. The family reunion is tomorrow, so I'm pretty excited about reaching this goal. I wasn't convinced it was going to happen. Success!
It is so wonderful to see my hard work and dedication paying off. Have there been slip ups? Definitely. But the whole "slow and steady" mindset is definitely paying off for me. I'm so excited to reach my other goals!
