Happy Day and Awesome weekend!!! June is here!! I’m so proud that I ate well all weekend. The worst things I ate were a couple of half wheat, half white rolls I made and half a small butterless popcorn at the movies. It wasn’t easy, well actually it was because when I’m ON I’m ON, but we did have several outings and dinners to tempt me. Many highlights of the weekend, but I’ll talk about one today, TAYLOR SWIFT!!! I’m so happy I bought the tickets. Here I am with my sweetest girls!!
It was quite the amazing production that I knew it would be. She is a such a doll and so talented. We had a wonderful time. My favorite part was watching my daughters squeal and jump up and down when she first hit the stage. Great memories!
OK!! Diet update! You know I’m sticking to one of my many plans when I actually post an update on it! 6 days in and I’m weighing 134. That is down 3 from my start. I feel fine. I wanted it lower, but we’ll get there. This week in fact. I’m shooting for 130 by next Monday. I have a cute outfit waiting for me to wear as soon as I get to 130 (: Can’t wait!!
During my 6 mile run this morning I almost committed myself to running another marathon with my friends. So many of them are training for one this fall and I have no other races on my brain, so I just might do it!! There is one on September 14th here locally down a beautiful canyon that is calling my name. I love summer running! So, you can pretty much count me in. I think the marathon will keep me on track with eating healthy eating too. I can feel a HUGE difference in my running when I’m eating well.
Food this week is not determined quite yet. We have a busy week with something every night. I do want to share my friend’s eating ideas for the week. She’s awesome!!! YUMMMMMMM*
