Promotion, Last Day & SUMMER!!!!

I am still breathing! I am still here. Thank goodness that Mo can keep this blog going!
I did sign up for the June Boom Challenge and I did my 30 minutes of walking and jogging in this morning, but I also had some tightness in my chest that I have not felt in a long time. I had to take a hit of my inhaler this morning.  I have not done that in years! I know it is just stress and all the wonderful spring pollen in the air. I do have a goal of running a 5k in July with the bootcamp ladies. I have never run a 5k before so this will be the new challenging thing that I will be focusing on. 
Tomorrow is a big day for my family. My daugther goes through her 8th grade promotion and then, I will have a High Schooler living in my house! And tonight is the 8th grade promotion dance that I signed up to be on the decoration committee.  What was I thinking??? 
Well, the last day of school is tomorrow and then, my summer starts!!!!!  I leave for Alaksa Saturday night and will not return until June 14th.  I am taking a class in Fairbanks for 5 days and then, will travel to Denali.  The most exciting part is that I am going by myself without spouse and kids.  It will be nice to have a little time to myself.  I will be still working out daily since I will be on a University campus I will get access to their fitness center. I am so looking forward to being at a gym with a pool and there are beautiful trails to hike near the campus. I just have to make sure that I have heavy duty bug juice on or the mosquitoes might take me away. 
As Mo reported for me I did hit the 20 pound loss! I have another 25-30 pounds to get to my goal weight.  I am at 165 pounds and I spoke with my bootcamp instructor who told me not to go by the BMI which mine would be down around 124 pounds because I am muscular and stocky. What do you all think? How have you figured out your goal weight?
Gotta run!
P.S.- LOVE you MO! Thanks for the laughs, the encouragement and inspiration! You are the BEST!
