June to me has always marked the start of Summer! And I am so ready for this summer!
June also marks my 6th month of not smoking (cold turkey thankyouverymuch)….GO ME!!!
June 1st means that in 114 days I will be MRS. GAUNT!
And in 102 days I will be 26 years old!
June marks the summer that I will lose the last of my Overweightness.
The summer that I will get in shape, and *gasp* become a runner?
June means suntans, sangria, and River floating.
And this song. Which is so near and dear to my heart that I really have no words to express how I feel about it. Just love:
JUNE 1st is also NATIONAL RUNNING DAY!
To celebrate Mr. Gaunt and I got up and did a 5k this morning. Mr. Gaunt ran along side me which was awesome! It still took us about 50 minutes, but we did do more long distance running, less breaks. I just need to focus on continuing running through the whole thing.
NOW ITS TIME FOR JUNE WEIGH IN!
I woke up this morning to the (once hidden) scale sitting in the hallway. I peed, stripped down and weighed myself. The end result was exactly 14 pounds lost! I was shooting for 15 pounds, but who am I to complain. I had to lose 14 pounds in 41 days , 4 pounds in 12 of those days. I’m pretty pleased.
Now I have to lose 10 pounds in June. If we break it down I need to lose a little less than 2.5 pounds a week. Eeek! I’m going to stick with only weighing myself once a week to keep my sanity. I’ll probably make Fridays weigh in days. Which means this friday will be “the little extra bonus weight” I get before my 4 weeks actually starts.
Workout goal = 6 days a week of walking 2-5 miles. 7 days a week of mini-workouts. Speaking of, don’t forget to do Wednesdays!
Mr. Gaunt and I are off to the wedding rental place today to rent silverware, napkins, and a few other things. And to pay for our cake we ordered yesterday!!! So exciting!
