March of Dimes

We walked for March of Dimes at the end of April, my parents joined us too. It was a fun day and the rain held off. We raised a great amount of money, thank you to all our sponsors!

Left a piece of my heart in NC

And about 12 inches of hair! :)

I caught a flight and visited my sister this past weekend. It was a much needed break! Had a Mani/Pedi, good food, saw Taylor Swift in concert and made some awesome memories! I'm so thankful for sisters (and beautiful, silly nieces).

And what else are big sisters for? Talking you into chopping your hair off. So I did it, I cut my hair... Joel was a little less than thrilled. I like it though and very easy to do! It was a much needed change :)

What would I do without my big sis?

Couch to 5k

I've started the "couch to 5k" program and it seems really too good to be true!

It doesn't feel difficult, I think I can really do this. And although it feels easy, after every session I'm drenched in sweat. It's an every other day program, but I've been doing the sessions daily because I haven't been sore and I want exercise to be an everyday thing for me. I want it to be a habit.

I can feel a difference and I'm only on day four. I feel less tense, and I've been sleeping better.

Right around the end of the program... I'll be in a race in honor of Cheryl, that's my sister's mother in law, she had a transplant a few years back and it took successfully. We're racing in her honor, and also for the donor, who is a relative of hers. My brother in law is challenging me to run the 5k :) I told him I'd have to think about it.

Has anyone done the couch to 5k program? What did you think of it?

she got it from her mama

and her dad & her grandpa apparently.

My high blood pressure!

Looks like all the tests came back normal. Which is a relief! I'll be on medication until I can hopefully control this with changing my diet and losing some weight.
