This may be a huge mistake, but…

I signed up to run the Indy Mini-Marathon! That’s 13.1 miles. 13.1! Craziness.

My goal right now is to run the entire race, which should be interesting to say the least. 4 miles is the most that I have ever run at one time, but I’m really excited about it.

The race isn’t until May, and I started training a couple of weeks ago.


If you follow sister_kristian on Instagram, you’ll be able to see more updates.

If this doesn’t turn me into a runner, then I don’t know what will!

I hope you have a good day, friends!



2015 Goals

I think a month and a half is an appropriate amount of time to wait to write a post. Am I right? It’s not like this post has anything at all to do with time…oops.

2015 GoalsNormally, I’m not a resolution type of gal, mostly because I have the same resolutions every. freaking. year. Lose weight! Keep it off! Feel awesome! Eh, not so much. Broad goals like those generally don’t work for me, and they especially don’t work when I’m literally supposed to change overnight. The more specific a goal, the better I do.

I have both life- and health-related goals, but I’ll only be sharing the health-related ones. I’m assuming no one cares how many times I floss per week. Just FYI, I know that’s health-related. Dental health is an indication of overall health and all that jazz. You know what I’m getting at.

2015 Health Goals

You may be wondering why I don’t have a specific pound-related goal, and I did that completely on purpose. I’m honestly not interested in how much I weigh. I do, of course, have an ultimate goal number in mind, but that’s mostly because I know where I’ve been before and that I look/feel good at that number. The number on the scale may not be everything, but let’s not kid ourselves, it is something. I just don’t want to set myself up for failure. If I feel good about the progress I’ve made and have achieved all of my other goals, I don’t want that stupid number to make me feel like I haven’t accomplished everything I set out to do.

Since it is the middle of February, I’ve had quite a bit of time to start working on these goals. Watch for updates soon!

Five on Friday: Goals Edition


Linking up for another edition of Five on Friday today with April, Christina, Natasha, and Darci!

It’s a short and sweet one today. Since I’ve officially moved back home, I’ve already started sliding back into terrible habits. It’s just too easy. With this Five on Friday, I’m going to share the five weight-related goals that I’ve set for myself. Maybe it will help me remember exactly what I need to accomplish. I know, I know, the scale isn’t everything.

Scale isn't everything

I can’t help but use it as a major measuring stick of my progress though. With that being said, here they are!

Five on Friday - 1

164 lbs!

This is the 15-pound mark from my starting weight of 179.

Five on Friday - 2

155 lbs!

This is the weight that is listed on my license. Come on, you know you do it.

Five on Friday - 3

149 lbs!

This is the 30-pound mark from my starting weight of 179.

Five on Friday - 4

134 lbs!

This is the 45-pound mark from my starting weight of 179.

Five on Friday - 5

129 lbs!

This is my ultimate goal weight and the 50-pound mark from my starting weight of 179. This is also my lowest weight from when I lost weight the first time around.
