Weekend Recap with pics!

I pretty much had the best weekend ever! :D Saturday morning was SacFit and my group did a little over 3 miles. It was a nice day on the parkway despite the mist that kept getting on my glasses. I seriously needed windshield wipers!

After SacFit, Matt and I took Jenny to the dog park to wear her out before we took her for boarding. She met a gigantic mastiff puppy and they played for about an hour. Mission accomplished!

We dropped Jenny off at the vet and then headed to Santa Rosa to see an awesome band play at a brewery there. It was such a great time! We had beer bites and lots of beer and pizza! The band was super awesome as always and I danced the night away! We stayed the night at our friend Mateo's house and headed back to Sac the next day.

On the way home we stopped at the Jelly Belly factory in Fairfield to get some sport bean flops. Pretty much belly flops except they are the sport beans, which makes them super cheap! Yay!

Once we got home we had a few hours to ourselves and then we headed to Roseville and went shopping for a bit with my parents and brother and his girlfriend and then we went to BJ's for dinner! So good! I did not have any beer though as I had WAY too much the night before! I got a birthday pazookie and it was all in all an awesome pre-birthday weekend.

One thing I want to try to do more of on my blog is post pictures, so...here are a few from my fun weekend!


Matt and I at Russian River Brewery!


Beer bites! So good!


Matt and Rejection...delicious beer!

I was going to do a 100 day challenge update as well, but I will save that for tomorrow! It's my birthday tomorrow! Yay!

Early morning musings

I didn't post my weigh-in last week (-.2lbs)and I forgot to weigh-in yesterday. I am a dork. I did weigh-in this morning though and I lost .8 lbs putting me at 173. I am pretty stoked about that.

I have been doing a challenge put forth by John Bingham that I discovered through a friend on facebook. The challenge is 100 days of movement. I am 29 days in and going strong! The goal is to intentionally move for 30 minutes a day for 100 days straight. It can be the gym, running, walking your dog, pretty much anything that has you moving for 30 minutes total everyday. I am really proud of myself for going this long without quitting! 29 days! That's a day shy of a whole month of moving every single day!

Is it helping my weigh-loss efforts? Possibly. But really all I care about is that I am doing it and I am going to make it to that 100 days a happier, healthier me! I am pretty happy about my loss this week, which I possibly wouldn't have had if I hadn't have been getting out there every day to do some form of exercise. Having a new doggie (pics coming as soon as I can find my camera) is a really great motivator to get outside for a walk. She is full of energy and taking her on long walks tired her out :D

This morning I am headed to SacFit for 46 minutes of walking/running. Day 29 accomplished! After that we plan to take Jenny to the dog park to wear her out before we take her to the boarding kennel to stay while we are in Santa Rosa for my early b-day present! We are headed to the Russian River Brewery for a show by my favorite band, Five AM. I am so excited! My parents are taking me to an early bday dinner on Sunday at Bj's too. I am so spoiled this weekend! My bday is Tuesday and I will be 26. I am over a quarter century old. Geez.

Signing off for now. Hopefully I can find my camera before tonight so I can take some pics at the show and of my little Jenny :D Have an awesome weekend everyone!

Help me!

My blog is so boring...

What could I do to make it better?

Give me some ideas.

I was thinking more pictures and updates, less talk about my weight and more about my life (as boring as it is), and maybe starting a "3 things thursday" or "fun friday" post that I do weekly.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks to all my readers! (all 16 of you!)

I would be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed...

I had a gain of 0.6lbs this morning. I guess getting more exercise really isn't going to be the magic ingredient. Food is key. That means I need to stop eating so much of it! Or could it be that I am exercising more, so I need to eat more of it. This is the part I hate. I can control my exercise, but knowing how much food I need to be eating has made me crazy for the last 2 years! Oh well...at least it's only 0.6lbs. Here's to hoping it will be gone next Friday!

Whoohoo!

Last night I cheated and stepped on the scale and was dissapointed at the number...but this morning I was ecstatic! It is amazing that morning vs evening weigh-ins can be so different! My morning weigh-in today was 173.4lbs! Woo! I am down 2.2lbs from Sunday. I am so happy! The 100 days of movement challenge is really helping me to be more active and not make excuses and I am sure it has helped with this loss. As long as I can keep seeing smaller and smaller numbers week after week I will be a happy girl!

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend! Tomorrow is the season opener for SacFit which is the running group I belong to. I am going to be a pace assistant for the magenta group this season and I am looking forward to Saturdays at the Pond!

Tomorrow is the day. My weight loss ticker has my 2011 starting weight which was 175.6lbs. Yuck. Let's hope tomorrow morning's number is lower...
