Completed my first 5K and feeling good

The last few days have been great and honestly nothing spectacular has happened. Friday I had my health assessment for work and my BMI is lower than it’s ever been in the last 6 years and so is my weight! Hearing these things just solidified that I am on the right path and what I am doing really is working.

Then last night I participated in my first 5k, the midnight fun run/walk in Wautoma, WI. It was so much fun! I did way better than I thought I would. I figured it would take me about an hour and a half to complete and I finished it in 58:25! I walked my fastest mile to date at 18:34! In october I’m going to walk the Plainfield Fire/Rescue Halloween 5K run/walk. I am so excited! I see many more 5K’s in my future.

I really feel amazing these last couple days so I decided that I would do a before and after picture of myself even though I’m only down 38 lbs. I can finally see a difference! It’s not amazing but it’s there. I am so happy with myself. Even though the progress I’ve made has taken a ton of motivation and been hard as heck I know I can keep going!

  1. Love the pics Tamie!! So proud of you. I have fallen behind following the blog, but just caught up! Brought me to near tears a few times. I love it! So brutally honest!!! Way to put yourself out there!


    1. Thanks dear. I get really scared sometimes when I post something, that I’m going to be judged, but I decided this is who I am and it is what it is. Hopefully someone someday will see it and realize they aren’t alone in struggles they may have.
