Forget Before & After, let's look at During & During

I haven't written in awhile, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy working my rear off...quite literally! Here's a little during & during picture. I'd lost nearly 30 pounds by the picture on the left. But now I'm at 63 lost with 18 more until I reach my final goal. Slow and steady wins the race, right? 

Now if only my knee would cooperate! It's been giving me some grief for about a month and I hate it!!!!!! Thinking I'll need an MRI at the doctor to figure this out. But before that happened I ran a 5k on Thanksgiving with my husband, his first race! Then a couple weeks ago we ran the Christmas Carol Classic at City Park in Denver. He did amazing!!!!!! I did not...I had to stop and walk a bit because of my stupid knee. But I was averaging a less than 9 minute mile when I was running and finished in under 34 minutes. I'll take it, just wish my knee had let me run the whole darn thing! 

I have my eye on several races in 2013, here's hoping my knee cooperates! 

I got Jillian Michaels' Six Week Six Pack for Christmas. I've done it every day since and I feel awesome! I did her 30 Day Shred in Aug/Sept, her Ripped in 30 in October and was doing the shred again when I got this dvd. I have muscles now! I've tightened up and feel awesome! Jillian Michaels has changed my life and I've never even met her! I think I'd be more star struck seeing her than I would seeing any Hollywood star, haha!
