Monday night after my run, we met our neighbors in the back yard. They had saved some of their cascarones (hand painted confetti eggs) so the boys could enjoy them since we got home late on Easter night. We had so much fun with these! I had never heard of them before!
Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I'm excited to tell you all about my runs this week!

It was a great week of runs! And I was happy to get in a walk with my boys too!
Let's talk about my weight loss! You probably remember me talking about wanting to hit that 10 lbs. lost goal in my Weekly Chase post on Monday. So you can imagine my shock when I stepped on the scale this week and I had lost 2.5 pounds! Not only did I hit the 10 pound mark...I blew it out of the water! Of course having such a big loss this week makes me nervous about next week's weigh in. But I will say that I am enjoying eating healthier. My body doesn't want the unhealthy fried foods and sugary foods that I was so accustomed to eating before. It's a great feeling! :-)
Tomorrow I am running 6 miles. I'm no longer training for anything but plan to do long runs every weekend ranging from 5-8 miles until I start training again in the fall. I want to keep my long run mileage up as much as possible. I'm hoping this will help me stay injury free in the fall (when my knee usually starts to hurt) and I begin training again.
QOTD: What was your best run or workout this week? Do you still run in the summer? Have you ever heard of cascarones?
