We are spending Thanksgiving Day at my Dad's house. We haven't done Thanksgiving there in a few years so I'm excited to see everyone!
This weekend was pretty low key. We didn't have any plans and I was ok with that since lately the weekends have been so busy!
Friday night we spent some time with my sister Christy and niece Ella! We took Ella to the park and let her "walk" some. She's 14 months old and not walking on her own yet. But she LOVES to walk while holding your hand! She's fast too! She just needs some confidence to walk by herself! Pretty soon she is going to take off!
Can you tell that I just love being an Aunt to this sweet little girl??? :-)
We also got to watch the sunset. It was gorgeous! I am so thankful I live here on the beautiful Gulf Coast!
Saturday morning I ran 2 miles PAIN FREE!!!! I know 2 miles is nothing but for someone who has had calf pain for the past month this is HUGE! :-) I was a happy girl for sure!
Saturday afternoon the boys begged and begged to put up the Christmas tree. We usually put it up the weekend after Thanksgiving. But....why not? So we are now all decorated for Christmas! And this year it was MY turn to put on the star! :-)
Sunday was a very special day. Hayden was baptized!!! Andy's parents and his sister and her husband all came to church with us. I'm so proud of my sweet boy and the amazing decision he has made!
Now it's time for the Weekly Chase! It's a new week and I have new goals to achieve! I hope you will link up your own goals with me too! And feel free to use the badge below in your post too! You can grab the badge HERE! :-)
Here are my goals from last week!
- Goal #1: Run every day! Yes! I kept my streak alive another week!
- Goal #2: Roll, stretch, and ice daily. Done!
- Goal #3: Maintain my weight by logging my calories. Yes!
- Goal #4: Get everything ready for Hayden's Montgomery trip. Yes...and we had a blast!
- Goal #5: Get everything ready for our Thanksgiving Feast at the preschool. Yes! My class was so cute as pilgrims! And their placemats and table centerpieces turned out great!
Here's my plan for this week!
Goal #1: Run every day! I still plan on keeping the streak alive this week! I hit 183 days this past week! I'll be at 200 days soon...I can't believe it!
Goal #2: Roll, stretch, and ice daily. I've just made this part of my daily routine. The calf is starting to feel much better. I'm hoping I only have a few more treatments left with Dr. Justin and that I can start running long again soon! The calf only gets tight during my runs now...there isn't any pain. After the run there is a little pain in one spot but after about an hour it subsides. So it's progress!
Goal #3: Maintain my weight by logging my calories. This will be a little tougher this week due to Thanksgiving I'm sure. But even if I go over I'm not going to get too mad at myself. I'm going to try my best to say no to foods when I'm not hungry instead of just eating because it's there like I've always done in the past.
Goal #4: Make my plan for Black Friday shopping. It's a tradition every year for me and my hubby to go out on Black Friday and shop! Last year we started Thanksgiving night! We may do that this year too. But I need my plan so I know which stores to hit first! ;-)
Short and simple this week! I hope you all have a very happy Thanksgiving! Remember all the things you have to be thankful for! I know I am very very blessed!
Good luck with your goals this week!
