5k's, Prepping and Accountability

I wanted to update the blog with my proclamation to run a 5k in May!  When I left off in 2010, I had just completed the Couch 2 5k program. I had no intentions of running a race back then but all of that has changed now.  I started the program again last Monday and I'll be talking about it here as I progress through the program for the 2nd time.  I'll be running the Fifth Third River Bank Run on May 12. !!!!!!!

I'm also gearing up for my weekly Food Prep Sunday.  It's going to be a bit more easygoing this week because it's my birthday on Saturday and we have a lot planned.  I am going to do my shopping tomorrow and do some of the prep on Saturday and the remainder on Sunday.

This week I'll be prepping a new recipe from Corinne. Pork Carnitas. I'll share it on Sunday.  I'm also going to be doing Almond-Crusted Chicken Fingers, for the kids (and my big kid!), Turkey Meatloaf Muffins, as well as prepping whatever fruits and veggies I can find on sale this week.  I've been noticing a large difference in the produce sections of the grocery stores I visit.  Some are definitely better than others and I plan to hit up one particular store for most of the produce this week.  Finally, we'll be doing fish at some point next week as well. I like to do fish at least once a month if not more and we haven't had it in awhile.  I won't be prepping anything for it but I will be shopping for it! It should be a nice easy prep for me! No sense in making it more difficult than it needs to be :)

Lastly, today I kicked off my March Accountability group and I'm so excited about this group of ladies! It's going to be a great month for them and I can't wait to see how they fare over the next 30 days. Accountability has been so important to my weight loss journey. It's so exciting to be able to inspire and motivate others to take on their challenges and meet their goals square in the face.  I love it!  If you're interested in joining one of my monthly accountability groups (I'll be forming another in April) please let me know!

Happy Thursday! Check back on Sunday for the weekly Prep post!
