Being MIA and 40lb. Milestone

Hi there!  :)  Life as a teacher definitely ramps up in the second half of the school year and I got caught up in evaluations, progress reports, conferences, etc.  There are still 8 weeks to go with no end in sight to all the activities and programs, but I have missed updating my blog, so here I am.

I have been a busy girl in the past 3 months!  During February and March, a majority of my afternoons were spent at Blendon Woods Metro Park under a picnic shelter with a couple other ladies and our trainer, Don.  It didn’t matter if it was raining, snowing, windy or below 30 degrees, we were there and working out!  It was tough at times, but I found out what I’m made of and kept persevering through.  I’m sad that it’s over and am hopeful that I can attend another one of Don’s bootcamps in the future!

I also ran my first race of the season…St. Patty’s 4 miler at Kinsale.  This was my second  year doing it.  A bunch of MIT friends ran this one, too, which made it extra fun and we were all decked out in green!  I PR’d with a time of 40:51.  The after-party was a blast with the band Conspiracy.  Lots of dancing and a little drinking took place that evening!

So much fun!

Oh, and as of last week, I’ve lost 40 lbs!  :)  I’d like to lose 30 more, so still a ways to go, but feeling confident that I will get there…eventually!  Weight Watchers rocks!

Still more to update, but I’m getting sleepy.  Hopefully my next update will happen a lot sooner than the last one.

Finish Strong!  Amy

    Way to go on 40 lbs. I was talking to one of my friends about weight loss and he gave me a hug when I said I still have more to go. He also reminded me to congratulate myself for the success. If I were there I would give you a high five or hug to help you celebrate an amazing accomplishment!
