Days 159-162…a surprise 10k and a birthday care package!

Friday was an all day work training….oh joy.  So glad I went early to jump on the elliptical or else I would’ve gone crazy sitting around all day!  I was disappointed at the ‘healthy’ food options though…I got halfway through my berries only to realize some of them were MOLDY!  Ugh!!

We had a few nice days…but it was still a little chilly…pupster had a blast when she realized the water bowl had created a giant ice toy…

After yoga on Saturday, my old roomie and I decided to go for a quick run because it was semi-nice out…sunny and in the 40s!

Don’t mind my giant man-sweatshirt…it’s my ‘Don’t bother me, I’m busy running’ shirt!

What started out as a quick 5 k turned into a 10 k!  My dear friend, who has never run over 3 miles, turned out to be one of those lucky naturally talented runners…we hit miles 3, 4, and 5 and she was still on fire so we just kept going!  I think I was feeling it more than she was!

Getting to the finish was awesome…we had a celebratory photo shoot!

The drive home was wonderful…gorgeous sunset on the bridge!

And with all that working out, I got to eat lots of cookies that night:)

I decided to go for it and attempt the cake in a jar for E’s birthday care package on Sunday.

It turned out just how it was supposed to!  I was very happily surprised!  I hope it holds up well in the mail!

I also finished my art projects for our bedroom…I love getting decorations up on the walls!

Today was a wonderful workout day…elliptical and some intense weights!  I love getting strong again…I feel great being able to get back into my old routine.  I am already seeing my body going back to how it was…I love feeling muscular and strong instead of just trying to be ‘skinny’.
