Weigh In Wednesday Week 39: I’m baaaack! and I have NEWS!

I know you couldn’t bear for me to be away for yet another week, right? ;)

Well! I took a little breather, and am doing my best to make sure that I have enough hours in the day to work, be with my family, be a mom and wife, and also actually have time to WORK OUT so I can then BLOG about it! People tell me all the time, “I don’t know how you do it!”

Neither do I, folks. Neither. do. I.

I’ve enjoyed being able to just live for the past three weeks, and though I was still around and posting for previous obligations, it was good to fall asleep when I wanted to, not after I was done working. Since I can’t very well fit in three week’s worth of updates in one post, I’m going to just kind of throw things at you, smorgasbord style.

We went to Texas!

I took full advantage of the new running views and went out for a quick run. We were only there for about 36 hours (really!), so I just did a quick 2 miles. Oh, and when I say quick, I kind of mean it:

Freckleberry Fit | Fastest Mile Hey-oh! I know that obviously, I only ran two miles, so that this time with a grain of salt, but I’m pumped about it! If you want to read more about how I nearly made my mom pass out, you can read this post. Also, confession. I ate Whataburger. I regret nothing.

I got some new dresses! and then took selfies!

Ignore my face, I have no make up on. Also, how the hell does young Hollywood stand like that on the red carpet?! I literally had to take fifty of these shots so I could get the damn legs right. I am not cut out for this.

and then I wore the dress out to dinner with bloggers!

Our dinner out was pure chaos. My three kids were there along with another girl’s two kids, and they were just … being kids! Also, Maisy threw up all over herself when I was two seconds away from the parking lot. Eff. My. Life. So I cleaned her up with wipies, tied my coral cardigan around her like a strapless dress, and went with it. I got stared at a lot, lol.

and the grand finale…

Guess who just registered for her very first half marathon? THIS GIRL!!

Women's Running Half Marathon Scottsdale

I am SO pleased to announce that I have registered to run in the Women’s Running Half Marathon in Scottsdale/Tempe, AZ! The race is on November 3, so I have more than enough time to train. And I’m not running alone — my younger sister, Kelsey, is going to run it with me! It will be her first half as well. I am so excited and I cannot wait! We’ve been planning to run our first half marathon together, and we’ve been trying to plan and find the right race for about a month. Bah! I just get giddy thinking about it! So ready to tackle it!

The Weigh In

I have weighed in every Wednesday, even though I hadn’t blogged about it. I intended to look it up in my Weight Watchers app for this post, but I can’t figure out how to see the exact weight — only a table! Bah. So! My weight in week 36 was 156.4. Today, I weighed in at 153.4, a loss of 3 pounds over three weeks! I will TAKE IT! Especially considering I was on vacation, and we all know how vacay eating goes ;). This brings my total weight loss to 54 pounds! This means I’m only 8.4 pounds away from goal. WUT.

You can read all of my weight loss posts in one place right here. Sha-wing!
