I DID IT!! I MADE IT TO 50 POUNDS LOST!! Y'ALL. I'M GOING TO BE REAL. I DIDN'T THINK I WAS GOING TO MAKE IT. WHEN I STARTED THIS JOURNEY IN SEPTEMBER OF 2014, I DID NOT THINK I WAS GOING TO STICK WITH IT. I HAVE STARTED THIS JOURNEY SO MANY TIMES IN THE PAST AND GAVE UP ON MYSELF, I WAS SURE I WAS GOING TO DO IT AGAIN. BUT I DIDN'T GIVE UP! NOT THIS TIME! I HAVE STUCK WITH IT. IT HAS BEEN THE HARDEST THING I HAVE EVER DONE, OUTSIDE MY BABIES OF COURSE. ;) I'VE GOT ONE MORE GOAL TO CRUSH AND THEN WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS FROM THERE. MY ULTIMATE GOAL IS 150 POUNDS. THAT IS 12 POUNDS AWAY. IT MAY TAKE ME A WHILE TO GET THAT LAST 11 POUNDS, BUT I BELIEVE IN ME AND KNOW I CAN GET THERE. THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING ON MY JOURNEY WITH ME. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT IS NEXT IN MY JOURNEY!
I am not sure how I forgot to update y'all on my Woodstock 5k and my Run Baby Run 5k!
Well, Woodstock was a BLAST! There were over 1,500 runners and boy was it an experience! I of course pushed my babies in the double jogger. My finishing time was 40:07! I was stoked! I went into this race with a goal of 40 minutes! How close was I?!?! I am beyond proud of myself. This was a fantastic race. From start to finish this race was well organized,smooth and all around FUN!
Now, the following week we ran Run Baby Run 5k. This was not such a great experience. I knew going into this race it may not be well organized because it was only the 2nd race they have put on and boy was I right!!! Not only was it deathly hot the course that we runners ran was TOUGH to say the least. My finish time was 40:57 which considering the hills we had, I'll take it. But when we were finished, I saw people finshed who I knew started behind me, and never passed me. So, I'm like, "Whaaaa"? We were informed by a volunteer at the finish line that some of the walkers took a diiferent route! She said, "It's a shame some of the walkers are getting better times than those of you who ran the whole thing because they took another route"! A route that was NOT 3.1 miles. I came in third in the stroller category on the correct route, but my third place medal was given to a walker who took the shorter course. Can you say pissed off? They knew these people didn't do the right course yet they were still rewarded? How does that work? Anyway, I will probably not do this run again next year if that is how it will be done.
We don't have anymore runs scheduled this year, YET! But we are totally looking forward to doing more.
Influenster Vox Box Review time! Whoohoo!!!
So in my latest #voxbox I received the following:
*Infusium 23 Smoothing Cream
*Dickensons Cleansing Clothes
*Blue Diamond Sriracha flavored Almonds
*Sinful Colors nail polish
*Vaseline Aloe Mosturizing Spray
Let us begin with the Infusium 23 Smoothing cream. This stuff is seriously a life saver when it comes to Alabama humidity, y'all. My hair frizzes so incredibly bad but with this cream it is totally manageable! I give this product 2 thumbs way way up!
Now, the Dickensons cleansing cloths are a whole different story. They clean the skin well, but y'all, I couldn't get past the smell. They are made with witch hazel and that smell legit makes me gag. I used the cloths once just so I could give a cleaning review. If you are okay with the smell of witch hazel then these are definitely for you! Cleans well, smells awful.
Blue Diamond Sriracha flavored almonds are as good as they sound. I couldn't eat the entire bag in one sitting because the repetative flavor was a bit much. But a handful here and there, DELICIOUS!!
I received a coupon for Bark Thins in which I chose the Dark Chocolate. So. So. Good. Seriously, these things are amazing.
Sinful Colors Nail Polish in the color Southern Belle. Super pretty color. Sinful Colors has never disappointed me with the shade they come up with. Great polish. It lasted almost three days which is incredibly good for me because I am super hard on my nails. Fabulous product.
Finally, the Vaseline Spray on Aloe Moisturizer. I am so in love with this product, for real. This stuff is amazing to say the least. It does not leave you greasy after you apply it nor does it leave a sticky feel. It absorbs super quick into the skin and definitely does a great job moisturizing. I was hesitant to purchase this product when I saw it in stores because I don't like spray on products but when I tried this, I was sold. This is an absolute staple in my house now.
Over all this #voxbox was by far my favorite to date. Absolute great products and new must haves for me. I received this product free from Influenster for review. All opinions are my own.
