I've never participated in the Thursday Three posts over at Shrinkingjeans, but today April
asked us to play a game. She said, "tell us 3 things about yourself that we may not know. It can be anything you want. Let’s get to know each other, shall we?" Since I don't really "know" my 3 teammates from Team Phab, I decided to play along
. Now, for those of you who have been following my blog for the past year or so, or follow me on twitter, you may have figured some of these things out already. If I'm repeating something you already know, forgive me.
- I watch WAY too much TV and I'm a total geek at heart. I love watching the Star Trek movies and TV shows. Firefly should never have been cancelled. I'm a Battlestar Galactica fan. Big Bang Theory is one of the best shows EVAH. I love all crime drama shows: the CSI franchise, Castle, NCIS, Numbers, Criminal Minds, but not the Law and Order ones-never got into those (a girl's gotta draw the line somewhere). I also love reality TV. SURVIVOR (I'd try out if I thought I could actually make it and then go on the show without losing my job), Bachelor, Bachelorette, Hell's Kitchen. Even the stuff my kids' watch is great: iCarly, Phineas and Ferb, Wizards of Waverly Place. I think you get the picture. Our DVR is routinely at 80-90% and we have marathon watching sessions on the weekends.
- I'm secretly in love with Nathan Fillion. See #1.
- I'm obsessed with changing my hair. Today, I took the plunge and went REALLY dark. My family isn't quite sure what to make of it. I don't really care. I love the way it looks.
That comes to Part Deux of this post. This week, I hit the 25# weightloss mark (yeah, me!) and in 10 days I turn 40. I'm coming to terms with the 40 part, but my visit to the salon and giving my hairdresser freedom to do whatever she wanted to me, might show I haven't quite accepted it yet. I started my weightloss journey with Shrinkingjeans back in June 2009 at 165.8 pounds. You can read my original post here
. I wish I would have taken some pictures back then, but I think I was too embarrassed at that point. In July 2009, I ran a 5k, finishing in 37:31. I finally took some pictures for this post
in Jan 2010. I had lost around 5 pounds shrinking with the sisterhood. Now, here we are 7 months later and I'm getting ready to say goodbye to my 30's. In the past 7 months, I've run 2 10k races and my 5k time is around 33-34 minutes now. I'm training for my 1st 1/2 marathon. I think I've decided that 40 is the new 20. As in 20+ pounds lighter (even if my hair is a lot darker). What do you think?
