This past week has been an awesome week! I have continued to count calories and still manage to put time in thought not a lot walking on the treadmilll. This past saturday was my first 5k. I finished and felt so awesome. Though I did it with my two kids, pushing a stroller ( my little coco bean decided to be done 1/2 way through it.. glad i brought it along) and it was more walking than running I am just grateful to finish.  Plus a bonus was it was for a a good cause. That's what made it more grateful. I even remebered to use my omoron pedometer i got. I love that thing! Though I have to remember to keep it on at all times. I do tend to forget. I am realizing just how much steps I actually take a day and I surely want to hit that 10,000 steps a day goal. I also am excited to say that I have lost another 2 lbs. so a total of 10 lbs so far since counting my calories. I am loving it and loving life. I hope everyone has a good rest of the week!

Question of the week:
How would you brand your health and wellness lifestyle?  How do you want others to know you in this area?

I would brand my health and wellness lifestyle in easy going, easy to do it style. I think that you can achieve weight loss and change as long as you don't try to make it too complicated and stress over it. You have to set it to where you feel like your doing it for yourself and this is something that is easy for you to accomplish. I want it to be an easy go with the flow feeling. I wouldn't want to be doing just because everyone expects me to I want to do because I want to. Plain and Simple. Go with the flow. If I lose a couple lbs. this week or not I'm not going to dwell on it. I'm going to make changes for the better.
