Running For The Bullies and more goals.

Yesterday morning, I went to a local park to participate in a 1-mile fun walk to benefit my local animal shelter.

It was really fun and I found myself being completely jealous of the people who have the ability to run an entire 5K and have given myself the goal of being able to run the 5K next year.

I came in third place for fundraising! Thank you so much to those of you who donated!

(Note, I am really not too thrilled with this photo. I cropped it because my gut was sticking out under the shirt, and I am really not happy with my jawline. I cannot imagine how pudgy my face must have looked at 275 pounds.)

I made my first smoothie EVER this morning.
- strawberries
- a very ripe banana
- ice
- unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- two big handfuls of spring mix
- 2 tbsp of PB2 + chocolate
- one contained of nonfat banana yogurt

It was AWESOME and very filling. I will definitely be making more smoothies in my future. Maybe I will use them as a breakfast when I get tired of my usual breakfast burrito. Which I don't see happening anytime in the near future.


  1. I think that's a great photo of you! Your smoothie sounds good! I know what you mean about the jealousy thing..I am jealous of people who have run marathons. :) Or, people who get to do races all the time. We can't afford for me to do do too many, and I don't always have someone to watch the kids.

  2. New reader! The smoothie sounds awesome! I love them in the summer when it's too hot to cook. Also you can TOTALLY train for a 5k next year! I was the least athletic person ever growing up and I just decided one day that I wanted to be a runner. I started out walking, alternating walking and jogging, and slowly worked my way up to running, and I'm still slow but I love it.
