I have no idea how long it will take him to get back to normal, but I'm hoping he doesn't have a rough time with recovery. He's really excited about the surgery, because the doctor told him he could eat anything he wants to after surgery--ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, if that's what he wants. So I may have a tough time staying on track this week ;)
You may have seen on social media that Runner's World is having a contest to be on the cover of their magazine. I know several people that are asking for votes, so I'm staying completely out of the voting game, but someone sent me a link today to the bio for a boy named Ben, and I thought it was perfect to share for Motivational Monday! What is more inspiring than this photo?!
Maegan just celebrated her six-month anniversary since starting Weight Watchers, and she's down 40 pounds! She started at 212 pounds, and is currently at 172, so she's more than halfway to her goal weight of 135. Maegan has even started to run a little--it's a slow-going journey for her, but she's not giving up and is making more and more progress. (Maegan's blog)
Jessica is proud that she is still going to boot camp 3 times per week at 37 weeks pregnant! She had made it a goal to keep working out, and had to modify some exercises to keep it safe for baby, but she feels great about keeping it going throughout her pregnancy.
Glory is very proud to announce that she just ran her first 5K! She did the race with her husband, and enjoyed it so much that she's already looking for another.
Finally, I just have to share my own submission for Motivational Monday. Not me, but my kids and my mom! Noah, Eli, and my mom all completed their first 5K on Saturday--and they did awesome. My mom said the kids motivated her to keep going, and the kids are already excited about doing another race. It was a big success for all three of them!
Don't forget to check out more stories on the Motivational Monday Facebook post! Also, if you have a photo you'd like to share for Motivational Monday, you can email it to me (along with a brief description) at: Katie (at) runsforcookies (dot) com with the subject Motivational Monday, and I may include it on a MM post. Anything that you're proud of is worth celebrating!
