Grab Bag Friday

First up, the lucky winner of Yet Another CSN Giveaway is...










***

RWB sent me this prize pack from her Run Naked giveaway.  Awesome stuff! I love mail, I love surprises and I love goodies! I have been in desperate need of a new water bottle for work, obviously I put the Nathan Shower Wipes to good use and the Hotties Hand Warmers will come in very handy (hehe) with these crazy temps. The Sport Beans, Bondi Band and 26.2 sticker are perfect too!



***

I bought myself a new party dress for my company Christmas party. I may or may not be trying it on and checking myself out in the mirror every chance I get. I'm not gonna lie, I look pretty good! Stay tuned for photos after the 23rd...

Friday is my weigh-in day and as of this morning I have lost 12.2 lbs and 3.5%BF since November 1st. I don't think I've been this weight since I was a chubby 10 year old! I'm starting to see why people are commenting that I am "withering away", but don't worry - there's still plenty of me to love! But I need a new wardrobe in a serious way. It looks like I'm playing dress-up in Mommy's clothes! Gift cards for Christmas!!


***

This morning hubs and I hit the gym early for an easy t-mill run. Now I'll have my lunch hour free for shopping and the evening free for paint prep (*cringe*). The plan is another short run before Bootcamp tomorrow morning, painting all day, then a long run with the group on Sunday, followed by more painting. It will be no small miracle if I can drag myself out of bed come Monday morning...


Have a great weekend!

I am soo jealous of 12+lbs since November 1st. That is awesome! I can't drop an ounce to save my life. I think a fast is in my future to clear out some of the junk I've been giving my body!

Nice job on the HBBC! You are doing great on your workouts.
