Goal....12min mile by end of year!

This week is super hard for me.  I am working from home this week because little Johnny doesn't start school until next week and summer school stopped last week...so I have really been trying not to munch and snack...which is what I do at home.  I did go to the gym last night...I will admit I did not want to go, so I bought some new music to motivate me---it worked I went and sweated up a storm

Today is Kindergarten home visit so I have been busy cleaning..she will be here in about an hour(early I know) I am a little nervous...really want her to like us. and I am sure that will depend on how clean our house is <shaking my head>

My nails are growing super long right now..either I am not doing enough work around the house or that extra protein I was taking is kicking in.

Ronnie set a goal for herself to run a 10min mile by the end of the year.  I ditto that.  I have always wanted to run a quick mile...wait...must clarify...umm my goal is not 10min(thats just plain crazy talk)  I was going to shoot for 12min mile by end of year.....ummmm shame face here is only hitting 16min miles right now.  I do 3 miles each day at gym.  I did increase my incline to 3 from 2 yesterday---wow I felt that in my calves!

I had to answer some questions for BOOBs to be in my write up---SO SCARY!  Hope I was witty enough or at least made sense!  She asked for my favorite blogger---THAT was tough.  There are so many I enjoy seeing in my reading list.  I had to pick the one I always go to first!  But in reality I enjoy quite a bit and some of the new bloggers get me thinking which is why I enjoy them.  I also follow a lot of runners and as I like to think of them as athletes.  They keep me motivated to exercise--which you all should know is key to this weightloss thing....yes food is important but exercise will push you further than you could ever go with just food.  So I am putting this in my header so that I can easily see this post in the future and be reminded of my goal!  I challenge each of you to set up some goals and strive to make yourself better!

Keep in mind that your mile is slower when you're running on an incline! If you kept it flat or ran outside I bet it would be a lot faster. :) You can do it!

Kindergarten home visit?! Whah? The one time I had a home visit was when we lived in GA, and because my preschool son had an IEP. They actually DID look out how clean my house was, so I was glad it was clean, lol! (I guess they figure an ordered environment and structure is important to him doing well...check.) Anyway, hope you enjoy the visit. :-) Sorry this isn't about all the other good things you talked about...my head is just spinning at the idea of teachers visiting your home, lol!! I stress enough when I visit THEM at "their home" - school. :-D (They do live there, right??)

Can't wait to read your write up! :) And kindergarten home visit? Eek, glad they don't do those here. They'd see how many toys are on my floor at any given time!

I hate it when I hear about parents getting stressed with the initial home visits. The whole point is to relieve the pressure on the children so they can meet the adults in their own territory so to speak. Nervous parents don't make for at ease children. Not that you can help it. I will probably be the same.

I've only ever heard one comment about the cleanliness of the house and that was when the teacher sat on the sofa and realised there was cat poo next to her and the baby was eating cereal flakes off the floor. I kid you not.

Good goal though. xx

Girl... I am still running in the 17 minute miles. I am not of intervals yet. So be proud of where you are at right now. You will make that goal! Awesome goal!

Omg...you were witty with your answers??? Yikes...I just answered them quick and to the point. Oh well, I'm not really a quick witted (is that a word??) kinda gal I guess.

Hope the visit with the teacher went well.

Your answers were perfect because they were YOU!

In high school, we had a class called "Walking Fitness." The gym teacher and class walked in the neighborhoods around school. Anyhow, we had to be able to WALK a 12 minute mile...and I was able to do that. That was many, many pounds ago, but someday I'd like to get there again.
