I’m so excited about my very first 5k!!  I already feel better by just registering.  As you’ve probably read in previous posts, I’m actually going to a gym and have been doing my cardio workouts on a treadmill and “wogging” in my neighborhood.  I’ve never gone the distance of a 5k, but boy am I motivated to train better now.  I’ve got a little over 3 weeks to get “in shape”, but even if I have to walk the whole thing, it’ll be OK!!  Those in the area are welcomed to join in the fun and it’s for a good cause too, supporting the San Jacinto Monument Museum.  Wish me luck FLF girls and SkinnyEmmie!!  Dr. Oz is gonna be so proud of me! I can’t believe it has been 4 months since I signed up for the Transformation Nation Challenge!! If you would have told me back then that I would be signing up for a 5K, I would have never believed you!

Dr. Oz Mentions Us On His Webcast!!!

We were so excited when we were asked to submit a question for the Dr. Oz Virtual Doc Talk!  We weren’t really sure if they would pick our question and we were really shocked when we were the FIRST question!!!  Check out the video clip below!!

ShareCare Live Webcast - Dr. Oz

Dr. Oz Webcast & Fire Lites Fire Collide :)

Tonight was super fun tuning in to the Live Webcast with Dr. Oz and other ShareCare experts!  We had the opportunity to submit a question to the panel of doctors and we weren’t for sure if they were going to choose our question….  Our official question was…

“Is it just as important to know your body fat percentage as it is to know your BMI?

Ours was the very first question asked tonight!!  To say that I was caught off guard would be a huge under statement!!  I heard Dr. Oz say…. “Lexy, Carman, and Cyndi of FireLitesFire.com want to know….. (and then he asked our question)…..

He then turned to the panel and asked Dr. Mike Clark for his opinion.

 At this point…. my heart was racing…. my boys and I were jumping up and down with excitement!!  My mom and Carman were texting me ….. and I missed the whole answer!!!  Hahaha!!!  I am seriously hoping to get a copy of the video or transcript!  It all happened so fast and it was so cool.  So, I’m sorry to disappoint you with not knowing their exact answer… but I’m pretty sure it’s a good idea to know your body fat percentage!  😉
