best part of my day. and what not.

Well, week really, it's been a pretty productive one. For example, I am officially finished with teaching for 2009, I can now say I have been a college instructor for an entire year. I feel so grown up. How the heck did THAT happen? Crazy. I have a few months to roll around all happy as can be in that fact until I start up with Spring 2010.

In addition to that monumental occasion, I started walking this week. On the treadmill, 20 whole minutes. Plus I jumped back on the workout and eating healthy wagon, it's been a few months. I've been a bit disappointed in my weight and eating habits lately. It's a bit of an unfortunate situation. Because when you aren't training for a marathon, or any race or running period? You can't eat like you are. Ummm, someone should have told me that back in April. To prove my point, so far this week I've walked once, hit up some yoga, two spin classes and am a few pounds closer to being at the weight at which I feel best. And it's only Wednesday!

Speaking of weight, just because I'm trying to eat better, doesn't mean I will give up a celebratory beer. Ed got some good news at his job today, so yay Ed. He has worked his butt off for the past four years and made some really tough decisions, and it's finally starting to pay off for him.

To the beer, the best part of my day:
*please note the beer bottle matches the glass, both Goose Island, of Chicago. awwww takes me back to our trip there in October, good times*

Really this was just a catch up post more than anything. Just like everyone, I've been busy, and the holidays and what not make it that much more busy. But I still wanted to ramble on and on, and prove that I can still post two days in a row. Mission accomplished.

Must be nice to be getting some activity again! I hear you on learning not to eat like you're training for a marathon all the time. Learned that one the hard way...

Congrats to Ed!

While my miles are still high, they're not quite marathon training high. Also, during training I was so disciplined with my eating. Yeah, I faced the harsh reality with the scale last week and had to call the "Post marathon celebration" to an official 6 week end!
Kenton and I have a new years weight loss challenge. If we make it we're buying a Wii!!
So, I'm there with ya! Trying to just say no to ALL the holiday goodness!
