Although I'm pretty pleased with the results on the scale lately, there are a couple of NSV worth mentioning. Actually 3!

First of all, I ran 2 miles straight in about 24 mins. on Wednesday. I didn't have my stopwatch, so I'm not sure of the exact time. I had about a 45 min. window after dropping off DD#1 at work before I had to drop off DD#2 at basketball and DD#3 off at youth group. As I mentioned before, Wednesday was a beautiful day and the temperature was 60! I ran on the greenway (same place as race on Saturday). It was a great run!

This morning I put on a pair of pants I have been avoiding wearing since my weight gain Oct - Jan. They still fit last time I had them on, they were just very uncomfortable. They fit great and are even a little loose. The pants I had on yesterday were really loose!

So, even though I'm not quite back at my "2 lbs. below WW goal" (still about 7 lbs. to go), my measurements are actually a little lower (especially around the gut area). I attribute a lot of this to the body sculpting DVD! So that's really 4 NSV's. 1) increasing running distance, 2) pants fit, 3) measurements are great, 4) consistently doing DVD which includes some strength training!

I was going to take the 3 amigos (my daughters!) bathing suit shopping yesterday. Yes, I'm a glutton for punishment, but they all 3 need new bathing suits and if you wait too long, all the good choices are gone. Wednesday night we had a major teenage meltdown at the house! DH and I agree that they've not been getting enough rest, so last night after we ate, all 3 had to finish up homework, work on cleaning their room/bathroom and get to bed early (DD#1 & 2 had to "turn in their phones"). I felt like I needed rest too, so I lounged around on the couch and went to bed early!

DD#2 and I want to run tonight after we drop DD#1 off at work. We'll probably run in the gym because it's pretty cold and she's a sissy! DH is working the cookie booth tonight with DD#3 (hate those cookie booths)!

I really wanted to see my great nephew tomorrow. My sister is babysitting at my niece's house (about 45 min. away), but I'm not going to be able to go. DD#2 has basketball from 1-3 and DD#3 has a cookie booth - which I have to help emoticon

My sister is going to see if her daughter trusts her to drive the baby back to our house so he can visit with us and his great grandparents!

I don't think DD#2 will be playing games on Saturday, I think they're still doing evaluations, so I might run/walk while she's at basketball (she'll be at a park with trails).

Not sure what's going on Sunday. It's going to be cold all weekend - low 40's, which I know most people in the country would not consider cold, but hey, I have southern bones & joints (and old)! I used to be able to handle the cold better.

It will be a busy weekend, but I'm looking forward to adding to those NSV's!
