Running on Empty

Today's post has nothing to do with cards.

I've always been on the more fluffier side, genetics I suppose. My health is pretty good but it's not gonna stay that way unless I start taking better care of myself. Plus being healthier may help with the fertilization process. It will certainly help with shopping for cuter cloths. :D

Last month a friend of mine announced on Facebook that she signed up for a 5k. It looks like a ton of fun and is far enough away I have plenty of time to train. What is it you ask?

It's a 5k obstacle course invested with zombies. Yes zombies. (Not real ones they are folks dressed up in costumes.)

Here's a video:

I have 6 months to train which will be good, I don't want to injure myself. Here is the official website:  Two days ago I signed up, and am very excited.

I'll keep you posted with how things go. I am happy to say I've lost 6 lbs so far and that's just been with watching what I eat these last few weeks. :D

Thanks for your encouragement and support.
