What a weekend already! First, I had a girl’s night out with Lauren last night. She invited me to an event called “Cupcakes and Cocktails”. Basically it was a women’s expo where you get 1 free drink, free cupcakes, and there are vendors there to buy from.
All of us who went forgot to bring cash. Doh. I did have enough to buy one cute thing but that’s it. Bummer because I found a pair of discontinued earrings from Premiere Jewelry that match the necklace I was wearing! Our favorite table was Lauren’s friend Jenna’s. She makes headbands and “fascinators” for babies and adults! Lauren looked cute in every one she put on.
It was a nice quiet night out! And yes, I totally ate cupcakes and drank bad things. Don’t be mad ok? LoL.
This morning, I got up and decided it was time for my first run back. I set my Garmin for 2 miles (I always set it for extra) and headed out in the chilly foggy morning.
I decided on a mile and then kept changing my mind between 1 mile or two. Around .6 miles out I decided I should only do one just to be safe (and my ankle was “feeling funny” not hurt, just somethin’). I had a great time running and can’t wait to go again!
After my run, I decided to make my smoothie for today’s Healthy Holidays Challenge. Just a quick blend of 1 banana, water, ice, and Vega Vanilla Almondilla Smoothie powder. I won this packet back in July from Colourful Palate’s smoothie challenge. I had tried the Chocolate Nutritional Shake before and loved it. Same verdict for this mix! Again, the flavor is very powerful, really making a great tasting smoothie. Two thumbs up!
Speaking of challenges… (is today’s blog jam packed or what?!), I joined another one! I had been seeing the #elf4health floating around on twitter and facebook and had no idea what it was. Finally, I stumbled onto the website and saw it was a challenge similar to my Healthy Holidays! Only the girls running it are majorly awesome and you get paired with an accountability partner to email. I signed up and will get a partner for round 2 starting December 9th. For now, I can join in on the challenges on my own! Fun! Go to the website before December 7th to sign up also!
That’s it for now! I have lunch with a good friend today and then I have to work work work. Its almost the end of the semester! Crunch time!
Are you joining in any challenges over the holiday season to keep you on track?
