Good things are happening!

I've been getting my workouts in. excellent. I've even been eating well. even better. My official weigh in isn't until tomorrow, but I think it will be good news! Monday I managed a cross & strength train, tuesday my speedwork, and today a ride on the trainer after work. I've tracked all my food every day this week, I've watched my portions and eaten whole foods. Candy, chips, and other sweets have had no control over me!

What's changed?

A couple things. First, I'm sure the excitement of a new year, new start have gotten myself and every other american going strong. Only I am determined to not let this momentum get lost after 2 weeks, or even a month or 8. 

Second, my relationship has been drama free. ::HUGE sigh of relief:: There has been no fighting, no late night tears, no throwing tantrums or calling names. A big reason why? Kevin has moved in! We ultimately decided to wait until the spring/summer of 2012 for our wedding to give us more time to plan and wait for his brother to be home from the Navy (before the family drama last weekend). The compromise, was that even though we wanted to wait to live together until after marriage, our relationship needed to progress. So he has moved in. Not all his stuff, we're moving a little at a time, keeping it low key, and enjoying being able to spend more time together. 

Lastly, I know my february races are coming up! New Orleans is a little more than 5 weeks away, and I've been busy planning my running costume for the Disney Princess Half! (just wait until you see the t-shirt I designed!) I also had to order my running skirt a size smaller since they were out of my regular size. And although I was assured the princess skirts were roomier, and I know my current size is a little big, I want my ass and thighs to shrink a little more before I debut the skirt at the happiest place on earth!

Tired me needs to head to bed, get rid of the rest of this cold, and wake up for a tempo run tomorrow!

My weigh in is tomorrow too! It better be a loss for both of us. Hahaha!
And I think the princess running skirt is PERFECT!
