I decided to get all dolled up last night for dinner.
I absolutely adore this dress and I haven’t worn it in a while, I forgot how sexy I felt in it.
Sometimes during all the training, all the lululemon clothes, early to bed evenings, I forget what getting dressed up feels like.
One thing about all the running & cross training I’ve been doing….it sure does a body good!

Heaven is for Real
I don’t talk a lot about my faith on the blog, but this book was a life-changer.
I urge you to read it, its tiny and I think I burned thru it in a long run.
I have it on my cell & my iPad and when I need to reminded of things “bigger than me”…
I read it, over and over and over again.
Headed now to see the movie, Kleenex in tow….

Yesterday was a lot of running around and cooking.
While out grocery shopping, I found something exciting….
SUGAR FREE PEEPS
I used to love peeps, but since getting diabetes, I haven’t been eating them.
I was a very happy peep eater yesterday! Smile
They actually taste great too, not exactly the same, but very close.

After all my errands were done, I did manage to squeeze in a fun lunch w/my bestie Karen.
We had fun catching up and eating yummy food at Aioli.
Once the hubby got home, we hit Lady Chancellor for a KILLER speed/hill workout.
It kicked my buttI’m even a little sore today.
No taking it easy this week – only 10 days to go till race #1!
