Oh and yesterday I went to Fleet Feet in Fair Oaks and looked at some running tights - My XL's are too big and very loose in several places and the last thing you want to be doing is tugging on your tights in the middle of a run! So I browsed the racks and found the same brand (Nike of course) and the same style and found a L. I kept holding them up and thinking "there is no way these cute little things are going to fit on my butt!" I did that for probably a good 10 minutes and finally the lady there snapped me out of it by saying "Why don't you just try them on??" OK - I tried them on and they fit and actually looked really good on me! I liked them so much I bough two pair!!

So I'm not so good at taking pictures while I run, I should have zoomed more on this - but way off in the distance there is a bridge that goes over the water (which is Lake Natoma) - it almost looks like the horizon line, but it is a bridge that we ran all th way to, under, kept going up the trail for another mile or so and then turned and came back!
Even if you can't tell there is a bridge way over there - this is the scenery that we had while we were running and you can tell it was a pretty amazing day weather wise.

I finished The Daily Fix this afternoon and I would recommend it for anyone who wants to get a little healthier, lose weight, or just feel better!! It focuses on steps that you should take everyday to improve your health, lose weight and feel better. I was pleased to read that I was already doing most things right and the rest I wasn't doing 100%, but some variation on it. It gave me a ton of tips that I will use in the future and some really great tips on eating out! It really made me think about what I'm doing now and the things I will be doing once I hit my goal weight to maintain my weight and fitness level. It's late so I really am not putting my thoughts together like I would hvae liked - but I loved this book and I highly recommend it!!

I have earned my 70 pound reward that hubby already let me buy - I got the new Ipod shuffle - it is so nice and we bought it last weekend, so I don't have to feel guilty anymore about using it and not earned it yet!
Oh and we had a substitute leader today and we were talking about walking and running before the meeting and I told her I didn't do a race that just passed because I had a training run the previous day and she asked me who I trained with, I told her Sacfit and she said me too! She is in the same training group I'm in, but with 500 memebers and her being in a different pace group than me, I have never met her!
Oh and Carol, my friend at WW got in to the Nike race as well! It has been a really up day today!!!

This lovely piece of furniture weighs 68 pounds... Can you believe that?? I also found an electric bike, some really big fishies, and some children weighing 68 pounds. Also in 2004 Austria Weighed in With New Coin: 68 Pounds of Gold Worth a Half-Million Dollars. Funny, I have lost 68 pounds and I feel like a million bucks - not just half a million!

Oh and at the end - Your finishers medal is a necklace designed by Tiffany and Co. and given to you by a firefighter dressed in a tux!
On a side note - I almost didn't get to weigh in today! I woke up at what I thought was 6ish and we didn't set the clocks ahead so it wasn't until I glanced down at the computer clock that I realized I was already late! I made it there just as the meeting started! Whew!

I was really nervous about this one because on my rest day (Friday) - the day we are supposed to do NOTHING - we helped my older son move. We only moved stuff from one apartment to another in the same complex, but it was still a lot of walking back and forth, and the killer? Stairs in the new apartment! We had stuff that had to go up stairs! My legs really hurt after moving day, but the miles flew by today and I was so proud of everyone in my group - they are all doing so well!!
