No Vlog this Friday, friends
"cause what you've got right here is a hot mess!
But that doesn't mean I'm giving up the chance to high light my Pit & Peak this week!
My pit? hmmm this may be a TMI, but I'm going to give the (non)glory to my wonderful cold sore this week. Dear cold sore, You are the epitome of a pit. I hate you. Thanks to you, everyone at work thinks I have a wierd fetish with my hands because I always have them near my mouth, trying to cover you up. Besides the fact that I am still traumatized by the memories of being called Herpes Girl when I'd get them as a teenager, I am sent into a self conscious frenzied hot mess each time I get one of these things on my lip. Why must these things be a part of life? UGH.
Sorry. I suddenly feel closer to you now, can you feel it too??
My Peak has some thing to with these numbers:
2, 7 & 16
2: the number of shirt sizes I'm down!
7: the amount of minutes I am now able to run without stopping! Now, I know that's not astronomical, but for this girl, it's huge! When I started from scratch in January, I couldn't even walk over 2.5 mph without getting a little winded. This week, I've been running consistantly at 5.5 for 7 minutes without missing a stride. I have to stop and appreciate these milestones to give myself more motivation to keep going! My sister Brooke is an avid runner and is set on us running a 5k this summer together, so I can wait!
16: the amount of pounds I've lost since January! WHOOP! I am so happy and excited about this! It's a huge accomplishment and exciting because I feel like I'm just getting started with jogging and have really felt a difference in my appetite being smaller. It's a great feeling and I hope I can keep it up!
Another Peak is that this little blog is about to get a huge make over, thanks to Katie at
