A few NSV & c25k

I finished my 1st week of the Couch to 5k program. It was definitely a challenge to get all 3 of my runs in, but having the support of a "buddy" and knowing that she was out there getting her runs in really did push me in the right direction.

My husband ended up in the hospital on Friday morning with Chest Pain. They admitted him and ran lots of blood work & did testing. They discharged him on Saturday afternoon and he was to follow up with a Cardiologist. Men are SO stubborn! I've been telling him this for MONTHS! And the fact that I work for a CARDIOLOGIST just makes this a little more ridiculous. He is having to monitor his BP for a few weeks and then follow back up. We are just very thankful that he is ok!

I do have a few Non-Scale victories that are fun to share!

On Mother's Day day, my oldest daughter gave me a big hug and just held on for quite a while. When they are 17, you don't ask questions and you take every hug possible!! She let go, kinda just looked at me, and then hugged me again!! As she was holding onto my waist, she says "Mom! Your waist is so tiny. I can almost wrap my arms around you twice!" Ok.. she was really exaggerating with the wrapping her arms around me twice (and SO tiny ;)), but it was such a good feeling!!

Every month or two, I get a "Free Panty" coupon from Victoria Secret. It usually has a $10 off bra coupon + a free gift if you spend over $75 coupon. The panties are always cute and the styles vary from month to month. I've always given these coupons to my daughter, because honestly.. the panties never really fit me. Even the L seemed small and just uncomfortable. Last month, I received my coupon in the mail and just shoved it in my purse. A few weeks later I found myself at the mall with my youngest and happened to remember the coupon in my purse. I stopped at VS and got myself the free pair of panties! I received another coupon in the mail yesterday and my oldest happened to see the mail. She says, "Sweet! I get another free pair of panties!" Me: "Not so fast sista! It's my turn to enjoy the VS panties!!"

Non-Scale Victories are just as fun as watching the numbers drop on the scale!!

Congrats on completing the first week of C25K! I remember when I did it, even though I was running more in week 2, the second week just seemed easier. I'm thinking it was because the body was starting to get used to it. Hope it's the same for you!

Your daughter is such a sweetie, that must have made you feel sooo good! And good for you for snagging the VS panties! I too got that coupon and if I get to a VS this week, I'm going to grab them.

Anyway, keep up the good work! You're doing great!
