Busy Busy Busy and random stuff.

It has been a really busy week so I haven't been Sparking as much as usual. Exercise and eating are continuing to go well, and I'm excited to be getting so close to ONEderland. I had to go buy some new jeans again the other day because the ones I bought 6 weeks ago were already too big!
I'm really enjoying all of the options that come with shopping in the regular women's department instead of the plus sizes. It makes me feel as though I've won the lottery!
I bought a Groupon a couple of weeks ago for 10 CrossFit sessions. I went yesterday for an assessment and meet the trainer thing. There was one other woman there with me and she has lost 110 pounds! It was nice to talk with her about how each of us has trained and lost weight. I'll be starting my CrossFit classes on Monday and if I like this trainer and this "box" (gym) I will keep it up. He doesn't seem to have as much equipment as the last place I checked out, but he does seem to be more focused on the individual so I might like that better.
I started my run training originally with Couch to 5K, but moved to Jeff Galloway because I like his methods better. I did the 5K app originally, and then moved to the 10K app to increase my mileage. I'm currently doing 4:00 run/1:00 walk ratio but would really like to get to being able to do the whole 5K without having to stop. I have improved from a 22 minute mile to a 15 minute mile, so I'm happy with that. Anyway, I moved back to the 5K app but am doing it this time on the "improve my 5K time" setting and seeing if that will help me get to the point of running the whole way.
This is the reward I want when I run the whole 5K. I have a James Avery charm bracelet that I've been collecting charms on for years, so I want to add this one.
Everybody have a great weekend!
