I'm back from our wonderful trip to the beach! I had two great runs on Thursday & Friday, & loved running with the gorgeous scenery.
The boys had a blast hanging out with their cousins (my sister & her two boys joined us on Friday), riding bikes, & playing games. Good times were had by all.
The whole crew (it's kind of hard to get 4 kids to pose for you):
Sam thinks he might be too old for the merry go round:

I came home from my run on Friday & my ankle wasn't feeling great. I don't remember twisting it or doing anything specific, but it is still a bit swollen, so I took Saturday & Sunday as rest days. I have my 5K (my first ever race!) on Sunday, so I'm trying to take it easy this week. I'm hopeful that I can squeeze in an easy run today. If not, I'll cross train.
I think this might be the first time ever that I lost weight on vacation. I'm so proud of myself! It helped that my sister (who is my partner in weight loss) was also there. I stuck to my plan, indulged with a drink (or two) every night, but kept my calories within my planned ranged, skipped dessert & ate lots of healthy food. I also ran on Thursday & Friday & went for a bike ride with the kids on Friday. I'm very close to breaking into a new weight range, so I've been motivated to keep pushing. Hopefully this week will be the week that I can make that happen!
I'm back at work this week (boo!), and trying to put on a cheery face. Neither of my boys were ready to go back to school today. My youngest (Nick) said on the drive to school, "I want to still be on spring break today, Mommy. I'm having a bad day." He's a total ham.
