Go Dirty Girl!

Just recently my cousins asked me to join them and run the Dirty Girl 5k in August!

Here's a quick video to get a picture of what we are going to be in for:

I am so excited! We should have so much fun!

I am running in honor of my Memere Jeanne who passed away in 2004. She overcame Breast Cancer during her lifetime, so the proceeds of the Dirty Girl run being given to Breast Cancer Research made it perfect. This will actually be my first 5k so I'm nervous but I know that doing it in her memory makes it all worth it. Today would have been her 69th birthday. I miss her everyday.

Memere wasn't my true blood grandmother, but she treated me and my sister as her own grandchildren. I was picked on a lot as a kid, she always paid attention to my thoughts, and feelings. she always was there for me telling me that I would grow into myself and that I was so smart :)

In the land of juice, I was nauseated this morning. I keep wanting to strive on though because I want to reach the goal! If I gave up to early I might not reach all the mental benefits that have been doted on the reboot!

Overall Stats, Day 8, 2.28.12
Weight Loss: 8 LB's
Jeans: Quite loose!
Mood: Nauseas, fed up, mad at the world. HANGRY!
Other: I am so ready to eat solids again. Thankfully only two days left to go! The veggie juices are grossing me out! I couldn't finish the beet juice that marc made me last night. I ended up making mean green which I am still sipping on. The weird thing is that I really do have so much ENERGY! The problem is actually more to do with juice time. I dont want to drink it! Not all are like that, plus I really liked the juice when I was eating only fruits and veggies plus the juice. Just juice only is not fun yet. At least I am being honest right?!? Marc did say he thought I was a bag of bones today. He even called me skeletor! I wonder if he is just trying to improve my mood? When I asked if he was serious, he said OH YEAH no one could doubt your weight loss. I'm going to try to get him to take my picture ASAP. Maybe tonight?

You're right, two days are just a drop in the bucket compared to what I have already accomplished. Maybe tomorrow will be better? I'm so excited for the run it should be a lot of fun. I want to get a pin made of her so I can wear it while I'm running :)

You can do it! You should take your picture with your last glass of juice for the day in a couple days. LOL.

That's a great idea! I'll go all Office Space on the Juice Jar!

I didn't even like the taste of apple juice from the juicer! And I couldn't get used to the frothiness! Good luck!! You can do it!

I can't wait to hear about your 5K! That sounds like so much fun.

Two more days. You can do it! It's amazing what you've done already!
