I really enjoyed my monthly NOVA Sparkers meeting today! We are a great little team and I love how since it's a local team we can do things together.
I walk with some buddies, we are doing races together, we shop together and I have a great gym/spin buddy. I have enjoyed each and every person and what they bring to our team. It's so neat to actually meet people in person.
Today was so relaxing to just sit and chat. I had a treat...a blended turtle mocha (ooops.....sorry Louisa, it was my 3rd treat this week, I forgot I had already had 2!--so I failed one out of 3 parts to this weeks challenge). Good thing the rest of my day of eating was light because it was almost half of my daily calories! Next month I'll have something more along the lines of just an iced coffee! I got recipe ideas, encouragement on running, info on BodyBuggs and Garmins and just had a generally nice afternoon. A couple of us went to REI afterwards and a really cute store called Lucy's, which specializes in womens fitness outfits. We found a really cool work out shirt with a great built in bra that Monica had told us about. They had my size and it even looked ok, but they only had my size in blue and all my work out stuff is pretty much black or pink. It was a bit pricey too....so I will save until I can get it and matching blue bottoms :-)
I've come to really enjoy the friends I've met here and am already looking foward to next months meeting! Thanks guys!!
