C25K Week 5 Day 1

I have gotten a little behind so I just skipped Week 4 Day 3 and went straight for week 5. It was really tough. Three intervals of 5 minutes running followed by 3 minute of walking. The last 5 minutes of running was really tough-but I was able to make it. Day 2 will be two intervals of 8 minutes running and 5 minutes walking. Day 3 is 20 minutes running! YIKES!

I don't know when I will be able to run again, tomorrow my son has a program at his school. Maybe tomorrow night, although I don't really like running at night. So we will see...

some of the projects I've done lately...

HALLOWEEN- a little late posting

We went to my parent's house for Halloween! Our town was doing trick or treating on Saturday night but they were trick or treating at my parents' house on Sunday night-this proved to be a challenge. Since we had to leave Sunday night by 6 in order to get home at a decent time, the kids had to trick or treat at 5pm. this meant not many people were ready for trick or treating. Oh well. They still had fun and got plenty of candy.

Baby girl said she wanted to be a "birthday cake on the table" which turned out to be her "I'm the birthday girl" t-shirt. But I convinced her to wear her LSU chearleading outfit. We also tried getting her to wear a princess dress-but she wouldn't have it.

I wanted baby boy to be a scarecrow but never got around to getting his costume made-fail-again.

So here are a the few pictures we got from the night...

C25K Week 4 Day 1 DONE!!

I completed my run today-week 4 day 1. It was tough, but not as tough as I thought it would have been. Halfway through my first five minute run I had a 4 legged friend sneak up behind me to join me in my run. It was a great distraction to have him run with me, but he sure did give me a scare. I didn't get a chance to run at all last week. I have GOT to get a routine down-it's just so hard with my schedule and my husband's schedule.

Tomorrow I weigh in for my first week back on "Atkins". I have cheated here and there a bit-had an Almond Hershey bar yesterday, and a scoop of mac and cheese with my lunch today. All in all not too bad. Looking for a big loss tomorrow!!!! Keeping my fingers crossed.

Week 3 Day 3 fo C25K

DONE! I ran today around the soccer fields instead of running in my neighborhood. It was easier on my back but I wore my cleats for the first time in ELEVEN YEARS, and they just fell apart....lol. My feet got soaked, but at least my back isn't killing me.

Not sure when I will start week 4 as I am busy the next 2 mornings-but I will get them in somehow!!!!

I painted a canvas tonight!! I copied one that I had one at Bunco. It came out cute!! I was very suprised!! I have a friend that had asked if I would paint some for her for Christmas gifts. So I wanted to try this cross and I am VERY pleased with how it came out!!! I cannot wait to paint more!!!

Also here is one of the ceiling tiles I have painted for one of the preschool teachers. She does these every year as a gift from her to the students. I love the way it came out-except for the name. I am not very good at writing/painting words. I think it needs to be outlined-but I am afraid of making it worse.....what to do? what to do?
