Biggest Loser Update: Journal Style

Okay, so I'm posting this more for myself than anything else, but I don't care who reads it (obviously or I wouldn't be putting it on the internet, lol). I have less than two weeks to go before the contest ends, I'm pretty excited. I've been doing much better than I thought I would have, so far I've lost a total of 13 pounds. Since January, I've lost over 20! Whoo hoo!!! I started to incorporate exercise into the weight loss "program" almost 2 weeks ago; I think I've missed 3 days (all for good reasons). And I found out that jogging in the heat is a bad idea. Note to self: wait till the sun goes down,- you'll have more energy. ;) I don't normally run at night, but since Arthur went with me yesterday I did just that. It was so nice, such a change from doing it during the day. For the first time, I enjoyed the run and especially the breeze; I might even go as far as to say I loved it. There were moments where I just felt a surge of euphoria, it was awesome! Unfortunately for me, Arthur couldn't jog as far and quit on me. Poo! Next time, I'm running solo. :) So I definitely want to try to get up early early in the mornings to jog, when it's still a little dark out. We'll see if that'll ever happen, I've never considered myself a morning person. You don't ever want to get on my nerves in the morning, I'll hurt you. Seriously, I will. Why am I rambling about this, you ask? I find it motivating! I'll take any motivation I can get at this point- I'm only halfway there to my ultimate goal. But it's within my reach now.
I think I have a pretty good chance at winning the contest here at work, too. There's only one person I believe will give me a run for my money- Charlotte. I've seen everyone else's numbers, so I have an idea where I stand. Next Monday (15th) is weigh in, I've really gotta step it up! Tara, you can do it!!! And think of the new clothes you can buy with your win!

This is NOT what I want to look like. Ew

Maybe I should take Chloe with me on my jogs, too. Then again, maybe not.
