Weigh-In ... The Thankful Healthy Blogger 5K

Today's Weight:  Yesterday morning I was 166.5.  I was not that this morning, as expected.

I've decided not to post a regular weigh-in post this Friday.  Instead you can read about how I was feeling about my Finish Strong challenge here, and I'll share with you a new Thanksgiving activity I took part in this year.

After posting the other day I decided to commit to participating in this:
So, I planned ahead, got a few things done early and made sure I had time to get up and run before getting started on Thanksgiving preparations.
You'll notice I beat my 5K time from Tuesday...and came in at under 30 minutes...for the first time ever!! I was super excited about that!!!

Even more fun was that I had talked my friend, Sarah, into running Thanksgiving morning as well.  Since she lives on the other side of the country from me she texted me when she finished her run.
She took a picture too, proof that she was running.

While I did eat more than normal (or like normal overeating on Thanksgiving) I started my day out with activity and it felt great.

Have a nice weekend!


  1. If I would have known you were going to post a pix, I wouldn't have sent you the other silly pix! (wink) I am glad you challenged me to run Thanksgiving moring. I'm truly thankful that I am able to run!

  2. You did great on that 5K!! I did it in 34:45, which was a record for me. I am so incredibly slow. Maybe next year I'll get faster.

  3. Hi! Great site! I'm trying to find an email address to contact you on to ask if you would please consider adding a link to my website. I'd really appreciate if you could email me back.

    Thanks and have a great day!
