Racing Towards The Weekend

I am so excited! I signed up for a 5K with my husband! The two of us will be jogging this Saturday in the morning in a community a little less than an hour away from where we live.

It’s the one and only race that my man will probably ever run in since he is remaining fast and true to his dislike of that particular form of exercise. He is bound and determined, though, to complete a 5K so that he can say he saw the C25K program through to its conclusion. I’m so proud of him!

We are aiming to jog the entire thing obviously. I hope we can do it! I have no idea what my time will be like, but as long as I beat my record from the last one I partially walked and partially ran in, I will be happy!

- 4 glasses of water
- 1 wrap on a soft tortilla shell with deli ham, cheese, dried cranberries, spinach, fat free Miracle Whip, mustard, and pepper
- 1 banana
- 3 1/2 cups Caesar salad with bacon pieces, Parmesan cheese, and croutons
- 4 cups salad with ham, grated cheese, lettuce, tomato, green pepper, onion, black olives, and honey mustard dressing
- 3 bites of a white chocolate macadamia cookie
- 1 small Mandarin orange

- 35 minutes of walking completed in 2 outings (20 minutes long and 15 minutes long)


  1. YAY! That is great! Its great fun to jog, especially with a hubby.LOL! I've been doing it for a couple of weeks. we always have a bit of healthy competition between us.

    Best of luck with the training!

  2. That is wonderful about your run! The link you put on did nor work for me. Could you please give me the date of that post. Regards,thanks,Bella

  3. Oh that sound fun! Good for hubby...he sound like a great sport, that's an excellent sign for future fatherhood. :-) Have fun!

  4. Have fun on your run. You will do great. Kudos to hubby for finishing it even though he doesn't like it. :)

    Must tell you..I've been watching my food so much better and the weight is beginning to really come off. Part of this is due to see what you and Lori at Finding Radiance eat, and then imitating some of it.

    Thanks for sharing your menus. :)

  5. How cool to be able to do it together. Enjoy!

  6. CJ, that's awesome! My hubby and I both go at our own pace though and he is a bit faster than me. That's okay though cause it means he will be at the finish line to take my picture!

    Thanks! Bella, it was from December 5th; the post is called Surprise Santa Shuffle.

    Anonymous, what a nice comment! Thank you! He is going to be a wonderful father!

    Leah, I'm so glad my posts are helping you! Remember to keep your plan individualized and sustainable and you will continue to have long term success! :)

    Thank you, Katie!
