Wednesday Check-In: May Your Way Week 3

Holy cats we are into week 3 of Shrinking Jeans latest endeavor.  You know, the one where we make our own goals?  Sweet!  Even more importantly, we are 1 day away from Fitbloggin!  Can you tell I'm a teensy bit excited?  

My goals for this challenge have been simple.  Stay injury free and complete my 3 races this month.  I'm happy to say that race #1, My 1st 25k is in the bank!  You can read my race report here :)  I'm feeling pretty much recovered and plan to test the legs with a short 1-2 mile run this afternoon.  Also, the back problems that have been plaguing me for a couple weeks, while not completely gone, are improved somewhat. Race #2 is on Friday at Fitbloggin and the Soldier Field 10 miler is in 10 days! Say a prayer that hubby makes it. He's battling injuries for the first time in his running career.  The dude even mentioned wanting to make an appointment with my chiro before the race.

To be honest, I really haven't done many pushups but I've kept up with the Sister Says challenges (64 oz of water and 5 servings of fruits and veggies) at least 80% of the time.  This week's Sister Says is to look in the mirror every day and find one positive thing to say about yourself.  I vow to try really hard on that one.

I'm also channeling the May Mantras: I am Strong, I am Worthy, Just Breathe (heck, BREATHE is in my blog title!) and I had a great time hanging out with the Sisters for SisterChat on Monday :)  Sadly, I missed Tworkout because I was doing blog maintenance and answering questions last night.  Did you notice my new "About Me" and "20 Questions" pages?!?

Last but not least, I was the lucky sister last week to win the Fitbit and I can't wait to get it and try it out!  Make sure you get your digits entered so you can win one too.

When I get home tonight, I will finish packing for Fitbloggin!!!! Say a prayer that I make it to the airport by 4:30 am tomorrow and my flight to Baltimore is excitedly UNeventful.  I can't wait to see everyone Tomorrow!!!



  1. I can't wait to hear all about your 5K with the Sisters and hear all about your trip! Prayers for an UNeventful FLIGHT but an over the top exciting trip in Baltimore!! Have fun! Enjoy that FitBit once you get it....and pray I win one, too, k?? lol

  2. Great job Bari! Have a great time at Fitbloggin. Just getting to see all the sisters and meet Roni would be very exciting to me!

  3. i'd say since you've knocked your first race out of the park you shouldn't have any trouble with the 2nd two.

    also you're being far more gracious about M than I would be. I hope he's able to finish. I still hope you'll beat him ;)

    *runs to check out the 20 questions*

  4. So, so proud of you Bari! You rock, sister! So excited for all of you to get together at Fitbloggin! You all are going to have a blast. Great job on your race and I am so glad that your back is improving.

  5. I am so excited about seeing you tomorrow!! We're going to rock that 5k on Friday.

  6. Have fun at fitbloggin! Make sure to take notes for all of us, and CONGRATS on the race!

  7. Hey there! Can't wait to see you in Baltimore! I loved your 20 questions and thanks for including mine in there!

  8. You do rock! Have a fun time at FitBloggin and I can't wait to get my FitBit, from what I hear we can friend each other, so make sure we do when we get it!

  9. HUGS!! I wish I could attend fitbloggin like you! That would rock! Congrats on the race and thanks for all your support!
