This is my new gel polish color. It’s supposed to be a charcoal gray but it took four coats to even get it like this. Maybe gel polish works better with lighter and pinker colors?
My sister and her hubby were here this weekend and we had a nice visit. My sister and I don’t always get along but this weekend was good. My sisters hubby is Spanish (just moved to the U.S. in August) and doesn’t speak English. I made eggs and hashbrowns for breakfast and he didn’t like them. I guess they usually have cookies or pastries or something sweet in the morning, so my hashbrowns didn’t cut it. Boo- they were excellent hashbrowns, too!
I prepped a bangin’ breakfast and lunch for this week. For breakfast, a tropical fruit bowl of pineapple, banana, grapes and honey tangerine. For lunch, a whole wheat pocket stuffed with roasted red pepper hummus and shredded chicken, with a side of unsweetened applesauce. I’m still going strong on the no refined sugar, and no problems yet. I did have to pass on cake on Friday for my sister in laws birthday, but surprisingly I didn’t feel deprived.
I finally went on a short 3 mile run today (I’ve been mad sick all week). It felt great to be in the fresh air and sunshine, and since the days are going to be light until 7 now, I’m planning another 3 after work tomorrow. It’s also supposed to reach 50 tomorrow and Tuesday- woohoo!
I’m in bed right now with fresh sheets- is there anything better? :-)
Sister and sister’s hubby are here for the weekend. Just watched Penn State lose a heartbreaking 3-2 hockey game in overtime.
Have a beautiful weekend, people.

Having a terrible body image day. All week I’ve wanted to go shopping for some new and fancy under-garments. Just something fun to wear for me and to give myself a little mood booster and boom-boom in my step.
Anyways, I find a few cute balconette bras and try them on. The one is super adorable- all lacy and feminine. But then I turn around to look at my back in the mirror and its like roll city. Seriously my back fat is out of control.
Cue terrible body image. Humph.
Today is day 5 without refined sugar! I’ve made a conscious effort all week to not eat anything with refined sugar, added sugar, or artificial sweeteners. I don’t promise I’ve been perfect, I only promise I’ve been as honest and careful as I know how. I have allowed myself to have coconut palm sugar/honey in my crockpot of overnight steel cut oats for the week, and I may have had some ketchup on eggs, but otherwise I’m proud of myself for making this effort.
Now I need to just stay away from the shamrock shakes this weekend and the candy section at the movies tonight.
Throwback to the time I ran a 5k as a bumble bee.
Pre and post 5 sweaty miles.
