I lost 10bls in the month of August and my motivation was up! As we approached September and the start of the school year, I began to worry that the new fall schedule would derail me. My daughter was starting Kindergarten and I would need to be back to work at the preschool full-time.
Lisa and I began planning ahead. She came over to the house one afternoon in late August and we made a schedule for the entire month of September of when we would meet at the gym. Heather and I couldn't do our walking/running in the afternoons anymore, but we continued to meet every Sat and Sun morning.
This worked out beautifully and I was able to keep on track. Lisa and I met again at the end of September and we planned out October. Heather and I continued to meet on the weekends for our walk/runs and it wasn't until the mornings got colder and the sun came up later that we had to call our weekend cardio quits.
I did finish out my outdoor running in October by participating in my daughter's school's Family 5K. I finished first place for my age group; 27 minutes. That was HUGE for me! Already, I was seeing some major progress in my appearance, my endurance and my strength. I was becoming addicted!
