Spring Has Sprung!

This weekend was absolutely beautiful! It was a little warm (got up in the high 80’s) but the skies were clear blue and the sun was full in all its glory.

What did you do this weekend? Anything fun?

I started the weekend off with a run on Saturday morning. I love running the trails in The Woodlands. The scenery is always beautiful and well maintained. I ran in to my old Running Coach, Liz, before hand. It was great to see her again!

This was the first time I ran the whole thing. That was 3.3 miles non-stop! Previously, the furthest I ran was 2 miles. Of course, I did stop and walk when going over the crosswalks (2 of them) but it wasn’t very long. That put a positive start to the whole weekend. My race is coming up soon where my goal is run the whole thing. I was starting to doubt that I’d make it, but I think I may be in pretty good shape now!

I went to the Town Market area and walked around for a bit more. The weather was too beautiful to go home and sit around. I visited Tiffany’s to dream!

It’s all so sparkly! Well, until you get it out of the store! Gotta love the lighting. Since I was feeling pretty good about having reached my 30 days sugar free and doing well on my gluten free diet, I bought myself a new watch as a reward.

Now, there is also an ulterior motive in that my CrossFit Coach is leaving me (moving to Austin) and I’ve decided to try and do my workouts on my own. Since it’s too much of a hassle to mess with my phone (except for tabata timers), I thought a big screen watch with a timer would work well. We’ll give it a shot anyway!

Later on, my hubster and I met at Buca di Bepo for dinner where I had their chopped salad. I gotta say…this is probably one of my favorite salads ever….ever.

mmm…doesn’t that make you drool?! I also had an Italian sausage to go with it. After the day was over I could tell I had way too much salt though. Hello puffy hands! Saturday was almost a perfect day!

Sunday consisted of going to Church, lunch, driving around looking at skid steers, and reading. I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend.

What is your idea of a perfect weekend?

It’s My Reeeeward!

People always say that you should find a reward to motivate you through the hard times during weight loss, or just getting healthy in general. Obviously, these should be non-food related rewards. I’ve always had a hard time coming up with something motivating enough. However….Today I found it!

I want to be a Pin Up Girl! I’ve always loved the 40’s – 50’s fashion and my husband and I both like the vintage pin ups. This way, I can become one of the lovely Ladies and my husband will get a treat as well! *wink wink* Thankfully, he doesn’t ever look at this blog, so he won’t know what I’m up to.  So, my final reward for getting to my goal weight will be to make myself into a Pin Up! I’ve already found a local photographer. If I wanted to really motivate myself I’d go ahead and book it in advance and put some money down. I’ll have to think that through!
