Hard Work Pays Off

Hey! Guess what.

I totally shaved an entire minute off of my mile from last week.



I started running again sometime in July after a two month break, which forced me to start completely over in the running department. I've slowly been making progress (trying to get back down to my 12-something minute mile) and last night I saw a huge improvement! It feels good when hard work pays off.

With all of the excitement from my first Color Run this past weekend, I slipped out of my new habit of posting my goals daily. Just to remind the both of us, here's what I'm still working toward:

August's Goals
  • Break out of the 230's (4 lbs. to go!)
  • Track calories for 6/7 days a week (Monday & Tuesday done!)
  • Exercise 4/7 days a week (Tuesday done!)
  • Drink 64 ounces of water daily (Sunday, Monday  & Tuesday done!)
  • Get 7-8 hours of sleep a day (Sunday, Monday done!)

I'm slowly seeing progress on the scale, and I think that posting my goals more often is definitely helping.
