Take two steps forward and one step back

Well…a childhood song comes to mind after this LONG fall break weekend!  “Take two steps forward and one step back…”  You can guess what that means.  Just as I start loving my progress and I’m doing well eating, I go outta town and decide to eat whatever, whenever.  Oh well, at least it’s not one step forward and two steps back!

I am on again!!  This week is absolutely beautiful!  I’m going to make this quick so I can get in a quick run before the onslaught of children!  We had an amazing close to home vacation last weekend.  Our friends invited us to stay a few days at their home in the mountains.  I might add it is a PARTY home!  We played basketball, foosball, air hockey, kickball, sang karaoke, hiked, fished, shot guns, watched movies, played games, made smores, hot tubbed…WHEW, did I leave anything out?  I’m sure I did.  I was in a small depression on Sunday after such a high…oh oh and I did get a run in on a beautiful country road!

Here are a few pics!

I want to share what we made for dinner one night that is now my favorite food!  Grilled pizza with delectable toppings.  My friend made a simple crust from Martha Stewart and grilled one side of each pizza, then we each loaded it up with what we wanted.  We had tomato sauce, pesto, fresh mozzarella, basil, tomatoes, canadian bacon, pepperoni, and more.  Then you grill the bottom side while everything is stacked up on the top.  I’m making it tonight!!!  The BEST!

I gotta get running!  We had a great 6 am workout this morning with about 15 of us or so!!  LOVED IT!!!  I’ll share more workouts next time!!

Take a run through the leaves!!  Love the SUN!
