Well, on most fronts. It was a FABULOUS weekend! Let's do a good old update, shall we?

20 year reunion mixer
On Friday night, I dragged Kevin to my mixer. He had fun for the first hour (lol) but a couple friends were great about making sure he was entertained! It was SO fun visiting with everyone & seeing folks that I grew up with. Funny part was that they didn't recognize me & a couple of them I didn't recognize either. Two of them said to my friend "who's that" & when she told them they laughed & said "well, she's changed a bit." lol Here's a couple pics from the night.
My friend Tricia & I. We grew up together.
My lifetime friend, Tammy & our friend Mike (the creeper) in the back. lol

Not sure why the pics are so small but that's a couple from the night. We left about 930pm & I apparently missed A LOT of folks that came later. Bummer but we still had fun! My cheerleading coach even crashed the party! hahaha

Popcorn Panic 5 mile race
What can I say here? Kevin & I totally rocked this race. Our goal was to finish under 50 minutes. I'd done that before & knew it was totally doable for us. Well, we in fact finished in under 47 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!! I about died (literally almost barfed) & kept looking at my watch thinking it was wrong! So awesome & a major thanks to my friend Troy who came & found us in the last .5 miles to push us home. It felt great & we were totally feeling like rockstars. We ran SO hard! It was raining & cool so that helped tons too! Due to the rain, we didn't stay for the parade but instead went to see a movie later then headed back to the festival after that.

I've been keeping my progress/daily journal on the "Eat & Move" tab (though I might be the only one reading but if you do, you'll see that I was up .5 pounds this week. I hold water very easily & did so after our long run last Sunday so I'm not even worried about it. It's only half pound & if it was more then I'd be doing some analyzing. I'm also not very "regular" lately due to prenatals so that has an impact too. I guess my point is, I'm not freaking out about 8 ounces BUT you also need to be aware of your body & it's fluctuations. It's important to progress to know those things & keep it in check if the scale continually shifts in the wrong direction. I'm also close to dropping into the next 10 pound range & my body tends to play games when that happens.

I think that's it. It was a great weekend. We saw Takers which was decent but seemed a little slow. Lots of man-candy though so I didn't mind. Nothing much on tap for this week which is completely fine!

I'm going to keep on keeping on & owning my life. It feels so great when you are in control & making things happen. Find that feeling. I promise you won't regret it!!!!!

Definitely agree with that last statement--feeling in control is awesome. I try to make the most of my situation by being in control of what I CAN control and focusing on what I CAN do/OWN! :-)

I'm glad you had a great weekend! And rocked the race--had to giggle at the barf thing! Congrats on that time! Woo hooo!!!

I've read the "eat and move" page! I think it's great that you record all that and know what happens at certain time and record it. I know it and scribble it in my planner, but it's I think I should follow suit and write it in a little notebook, with my eats for the day. I was so much better at this when I had a schedule to follow! I am such a person of!

Glad you kicked butt on the race. I got your text but figured you were running around. Thanks for the review on Takers. I was debating seeing it.
