Accountability Monday (on Wednesday) - 4/10/13

I am running behind this week…ugh!  Too many things on the to-do list, too little time!  So better late than never with this week's accountability post.

This one seemed fitting this week...

I had a thoroughly wonderful road trip getaway to MO this weekend to see my girlfriend Melissa!!  I got to do the Color Run with her and her family in Springfield and what a BLAST that race was!!!  It was untimed race so I put my competitive side on hold and just enjoyed the fun.  I took in the crowds, the music, and tried to get as much color as I could!  It was so amazing to be there and watch Melissa run her first 5k!  Having recently been there myself I can completely appreciate the emotion, pride, accomplishment and all of the other emotions that go into that.  Melissa was one of my very first inspirations to begin this journey and I felt so blessed to be able to witness her huge accomplishment and help cheer her on!!!

I hit up the goodwill while I was there in search of some clothes that would fit a bit better.  I had again hit the point where it felt like everything in my closet was baggy and ill-fitting.  Since I don’t seem to be staying in sizes very long (a GREAT problem to have!) I am trying to shop as economically as possible these days, so goodwill has been a great choice when I have time to search through the racks for a great find.  So what better time than a weekend without the kiddos!  I was able to score 2 pair of size 12 dress pants (omgeeee a 12 people….I haven’t been that size since I graduated high school nearly 20 years ago!!!!) and a couple of shirts.  Keep watching future blog posts for pics of the new outfits.  I also finally spend my JCPenney’s gift card from Christmas on a few shirts (one was even a MEDIUM!!) and found a cute spring dress at Old Navy.

Monday's outfit
Coral dress - Old Navy (size L)
Denim jacket - Old Navy (size XL)

So now that Easter and my trip are behind me it is time to get back to my normal routine and get the progress going again.  I find that anytime I really get out of my routine my body doesn’t respond well.  I can maintain so that’s great, but I still have about another 40-50 pounds to go to get to my goal weight so I am not satisfied with maintaining now.   One of my goals is to continue to make progress on eating “cleaner” (less processed foods).  I don’t ever expect to be one that is 100% but I figure the more natural I can be the better.  So I have talked my hubby into joining me in starting the Advocare 24 day challenge on April 16th.  I am super excited to see what progress we are able to make with that and how we feel.  Be sure to watch for blog posts on our thoughts and progress throughout the challenge!
