I just adore my family and have enjoyed spending the past couple weekends with them. Last weekend was Dana’s wedding shower, then she and Payton stayed the week at my house and then our whole family went to Ryan and Michelle’s wedding, this past Saturday. It has been some truly great times with lots of the people I love. I’m feeling very thankful and fortunate to have such a large family and to have so many people around me to love and to love me back. That’s just such an amazing feeling. So, again I say, yay for family!
On another note, I’m getting back on track with working out and all that good stuff. I didn’t work out at all last week, with Dana and Payton being here and I didn’t eat really well either, but that is all changing this week. I got up at 5:15 this morning, brushed my teeth and hair, threw on some clothes and headed out for a run. I ran/walked for 30 minutes and went a little over 2 miles. Certainly not my best time, but I actually haven’t ran it about a month, so I have to ease back into it. I’m sure tomorrow will be better. It felt so good to be outside so early, when it’s just starting to get light and it’s so quiet everywhere. It was a great run. I plan on running every morning, Monday through Friday and then doing some strength training exercises at least 3 days a week as well. Hopefully I can drop another 10 pounds by the time Dana’s wedding rolls around on August 16th. Anyway though, I’m back on track and that feels fantastic.
So, all in all, life has been pretty busy lately but it has also been pretty wonderful. Praise be to God!
Here are some pictures from the past two weekends.
