Sunday Funday

My day started with seeing my goal weight on the scale, VICTORY. Parks and Rec Volleyball ended last week with my team taking 2nd and this was the first Sunday that I have enjoyed the entire day with my boys. I did not leave the house except to attend a birthday party for the 6 year old boy next door. RELAXING, well mostly, I cross-trained with hubby today lifting in our living room. I hate squats but I know I need to strengthen my legs.. Funny he loaded a a dumbbell with 65 pounds (The weight I have lost), I picked it up, WOW!! How did I manage to move around with that much extra weight? No wonder running is much easier now. The sun was shining and I laid out while the little guy took a nap. The beginning of a tan...YIPPEE!!

I have a few photos from the run yesterday that I will post tomorrow. When I logged on and looked at Run to the Finish I found that I had WON the goodie bag giveaway, SWEET!! Amanda gives away nutrition and running items and I was the big winner...pretty cool... Below is the photo of me after the 9 miles yesterday, my smile and posture sums up how I feel today.

Here is to a great week!!
