Oh my goodness. Spring break is less than a week away and we have SNOW on the ground. As a teacher I loooove these days off to stay home and snuggle with my 3 kiddos, but I am really hoping for nice weather next week as we head to the Outer Banks!

Just a week ago - swinging on a sunny day!

Well, I have been using the Spark People iphone app lately for tracking exercise and calories, so today I took advantage of this nice day at home to play on the real, live website. I love it! The kiddos have done water color painting, puzzles, coloring, games, lego building...right now they are watching a video so I can take a little break.

My running journey has been going well lately. I'm training for the Monument Ave 10k and have been running with a team almost every Saturday for the past 7 weeks. Running 5 miles feels normal (?!) but I would love to see myself get faster. I've been toying with the idea of a half marathon...but haven't committed to anything yet.

Tonight we will head to the gym so I can ZUMBA and the kids can run/crawl around the awesome kids zone.

Right now I'm FINALLY past my pre-pregnancy weight plateau. My daughter is 8 months old and when I reached my pre-pregnancy weight, my body decided to hang out there for a while. BUT thanks to running miles and miles and turning down sugary treats for a few weeks, I'm now five pounds LOWER than my pre-pregnancy weight. Also known as the lowest weight I have seen in EIGHT years, and a total of 45 pounds down from my highest weight. That is something to celebrate, but I'm going to keep looking forward and I am going to keep working this weight off!

    The kids and I are so ready for nice weather too! My son finally gave up his winter long protest to hats and gloves just to finally get outside again. Last year in March they were swimming in the kiddie pool! What a difference.
