Ready, set, go!

Tomorrow is the big day! The OIB Run for Food 5k. Here is the latest forecast:

I'm nervous that the morning will stay pretty cold with Friday night's low of 24 degrees, and with the wind on the high rise bridge I expect the wind chill to be COLD. I'm prepared though! I took the advice of many people and bought a compression shirt, warmer pants and I got out my fleece hat, fingerless mittens and ear cover. I think I'm as ready as I'm going to be for the cold weather. I will also be in layers, so I can strip down if need be.

I'm excited and feel more ready for this 5k than I did for the Greensboro Gobbler. My friend Kelly is coming with me to cheer me on and take pictures. She's not normally a morning person, like at all, so I'm extremely grateful that she is coming with me!

In other news, today was my weigh-in day. I am down 6lbs since January 1st! Now, now...I am fully aware that by weighing on 1/1, after a night of heavy drinking and very salty foods means this number is probably very skewed, but I will say that I have have had a good on-point week and it feels great to be back in a healthy routine, tracking, exercising and cooking.

Happy Friday everyone! Anyone have any exciting weekend plans? :)

Haha, I must be super acclimated now because I looked at that and thought, Wow, that's perfect. It's going to be so warm! :) Maybe that's just because it's 18 below out right now here. With up to 30mph wind cold they called off school for safety, which means that's cold even for here. I still bet that once you get going, you'll be fine. Incentive not to stop! lol

LOVE your newly updated photo by the way! Way to go! You're my inspiration. :)
