Read on, big news!

Well, after a gain of 0.4 pounds this week I decided it was time for a killer workout! I got to the gym, jumped on the treadmill and....OUCH! My shins were KILLING me. I have some major shin splint issues which makes it really hard to run. Here is what I ended up with...
I spent 36 minutes on the treadmill today. I ran/walked between a 3.7 and 5.2. Considering my pain, I think I did pretty darn good!
Feelin' good and still loving the post-workout glow!

Tomorrow morning I am headed to a water aerobics class with my friend, Sara at SCC. I am looking forward to my first group class! On Thursday, Sarah and I are doing a cycling class at LifeTime fitness with Nick May. I am scared for that one! Nick is also a really inspiring and motivating friend of mine.  He works for LifeTime in WBL so if you are interested in a membership there, please let me know! He can hook ya up!


It's official...I will be running my first race on May 28, 2011 in Mason City, IA! I will be running the 4 mile 22nd Annual Stu Nevermann Memorial Run during Band Festival! Band Fest Info! 
If there is anyone that will be in town that weekend and would like to join me, please do! I know Michael and the crew will be cheering my on from the sidelines! I expect a full cheering squad :)

Anyway, back to today. Tonight's dinner was a totally random concoction of crap. I mean, it was good crap but my cupboards were bare and I just threw it together. It was a serving of spaghetti noodles with a homemade sauce.  The sauce was made of 2tbsp olive oil, chopped onion, garlic, and broccoli. 

It was awesome! I calculated it at about 13 points and it totally filled me up!

One more thing...I just have to share my new favorite snack.
Take on crisp and spread the Laughing Cow cheese on top...SO yummy.

I SO enjoy these!

And remember...
