…running to
I’ve been on the treadmill in our basement (which has been working out beautifully!) and it faces the TV we have down there. Except the TV is not hooked up to cable; REB is using it as a gigantic monitor for his computer (Did I mention we have like 6 different laptops or computing devices in our house already? I married a compunerd!). While I run, I stream my Vevo playlist which has become my go-to running playlist! I’ve become accustomed to knowing when a certain song starts, I should be speeding up, slowing down, sprinting, etc. It’s been great!

  • Deadmau5 – Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff

  • Afrojack feat. Spree Wilson – The Spark
  • Britney Spears – Toxic

…feeling motivated!
11 down, 9 more to go! I’ve been at the “10 pounds left” spot twice before and never accomplished it. I am determined more than ever to try to get there this time. Third time’s a charm, right?

…planning a mini vacay with REB out west this summer!
It took us a while to figure out where to go. We tackled with going back to Vermont, visiting Arches Nat’l Park (but doing that in October), San Fransisco (on my list, not so much his) or doing our big Seattle/Vancouver trip. But I think we just want a quick getaway and we’ve decided on Portland, OR! I’m pretty stoked.

…realizing I’ve had a total of four drinks since Jan 1. Whoa.

…in home improvement mode and happy because our master bedroom is almost finished!

…loving March Madness! Who’s with me? Go Green!

…still going strong with the 100 Happy Days project.

…proud of myself to finally be able to run continuously for 30 minutes and taking 30 seconds off my pace. 

…gearing up and putting ideas together for upcoming photo sessions with new and returning clients. I seriously can’t wait!

…more than halfway done with my reading goal for the year.

…looking forward to a weekend of fun and family.

What’s going on in your world?

    You’re killing it! I’m glad you’re my workout buddy. I wouldn’t be in those classes if you weren’t going with me. So proud of your success so far.

      Thanks Amber! It definitely helps having a workout buddy and having a texting system to get me off my ass to go workout, too. Thanks for being such a big support and encouragement system for me! <3 we are going to be beasts when summer comes!

      Thank you so much for the supportive words, Dixya! It helps following such healthy blogs, like yours! I soo want to go to San Fran. I’m thinking it’ll end up having to be a trip I do on my own since REB isn’t as keen on going there (weirdo! lol). I’ll definitely recap how Portland goes and hopefully you can recap SF for all of us! I haven’t heard of The Storyteller but I will look it up on Goodreads!

    Lots of great things going on! Congrats on the weight loss and running progress!! So proud of you!

    I’m currently really looking forward to dinner :) Haha! Making a simple enchilada bake that I think it going to turn out wonderfully!

      Thanks Par!! <3 <3 It helps having so many people around me supporting and encouraging me. It’s such a huge motivation in addition to other things. I SO saw your tweet and post about the veggie enchilada bake. Heading over to read about it now. Love Two Peas and their Pods, but so excited to read your adaptation of it!

      I knew you’d let me know of recommendations! We’re excited to check out the food trucks, eat at all the vegan- and vegetarian-friendly places and also drive through Tillamook National Forest and go to the coast. I can’t wait!
