Since I disappeared from the blog world for so long I thought it would be a good idea to go through my iphone photos starting in February and share with you my favorite ones. If you follow me on facebook you have probably seen most of these but they are obviously worth seeing again.
But first a little update on my day/week. I know when I blogged in the past I was very detailed of what my daily life consisted of. I didn’t think I would miss that aspect of blogging but I sort of do. I had friends of mine that I think liked that part of the blog so I am going to try over the next few months to develop a blog schedule where I can start including day to day things like workouts, kids activities and what we eat in our house. This will be especially fun since we are about to become a very frugal family and I am going to be striving to safe money while still maintain a healthy lifestyle.
So today consisted of the Couch 2 5K workout from week 6 day 2. I have been running with a group from the Y that is doing the program together. I am doing this program as a way to motivate myself, meet new people, rekindle my love for running and to get faster at my 5K time. So far I am meeting all of those goals and am seeing improvements in my time which is making me very happy! Our 5K is coming up quickly and I am so excited about experiencing this with all of the great people in our group. We normally meet early in the morning (6:15) but today it was storming and we can’t meet outside in the lightning so everyone was responsible for getting their run in on their own. I briefly thought about heading to the y when I was already up for the run but decided sleeping a couple extra hours would be more fun. In fact, Lew decided to go with me and do the workout as well which was great motivation to go fast and try to beat him. Even though I know running isn’t necessarily a competition it is to me. Always. I think it just helps me push myself. After our treadmill workout we went to a gentle yoga class which was an amazing way to stretch and recover after our run.
As far as food for the day, it has been pretty boring. I am doing weight watchers and have lost about 25 pounds and am working hard to keep that off and lose a little more. So my food isn’t always that great to show off. This week I am trying to really balance everything because we are having VBS at church in the evenings and are eating there. So today has consisted of eggs, corn tortillas and strawberries for breakfast and leftover tacos made with lean beef for lunch. I told you, very interesting
Now, on to the fun stuff for the day…the photos! I hope you enjoy!

LB playing golf on our summer beach trip.
We all had the stomach virus while at the beach and didn’t have much beach time so our last night we went out to play after dinner. The kids had a blast!
Daisy making herself at home in the new house while we were getting some work done.
Do you see those sweet fingers stealing my blueberries! Yes, I am still gluten free and these are my favorite gluten free pancakes (made with gluten free bisquick) topped with peanut butter, cinnamon and blueberries.

I think she is amazing!
And last but not least, we are still making salsa!
