Quick (Non-Video) Update!

Hey there! Hope you had a great weekend. My SD card reader died and I’m waiting for a new one to arrive (should be here Tuesday) so I don’t have a vlog for today but vlogs will return asap!

Since we last talked the floating shelf above the new dresser was installed, so now it’s up to me to find cute decor to spruce it up.

I took a quick trip to Home Goods on Sunday afternoon to look around but didn’t find anything for the bedroom. I picked up a few other things for the living room which I will show you as soon as I can vlog again!

I got in a nice 8 miler this weekend in rainy but comfortable conditions. Usually I hate running in the rain but this year I’ve been doing a lot of running in the sun and it’s HARD. I used to always run after work when the sun was either setting or already set. Now that I am running earlier and in the direct sun I welcome as many rainy and overcast days as I can get!

BTW get ready to see a lot of these shorts ^. Over the last few weeks I’ve lost another 7lbs and now these are the only shorts that don’t really chafe me. I ordered another pair in a different pattern that just arrived and you’ll probably be seeing a lot of them too.

I refuse to order a bunch of new shorts for them to only fit for a couple months while I’m on this weight loss journey, so I’m going to have to make do with these two pair for now. I will probably post another weight loss video this coming week too for those who are following along… I’ve got a lot of thoughts!

Also, look at this cute birthday boy:

Today Cecil turns 11 years old! Adam and I went shopping for his birthday gifts yesterday and I am very excited to give them to him today :). I can’t believe he’s 11 now, he still looks like a tiny baby kitten I adopted back in November 2007:

Anyway, I have lots of stuff I want to share this week: running updates, weight loss updates, Cecil updates, home renovation updates… My new SD card reader should be here Tuesday which means I hope to have a new vlog up on Wednesday! Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see new vlogs before I post them here :).

Talk again soon!

    Awww, what a cutie kitten (and now cat!). Happy b-day Cecil! What brand shorts are you wearing now? I have a few Old Navy pairs that I really love.

      I wear Skirt Sports now —- looooove them! They are super comfortable but most importantly they have a pocket on both sides to keep your phone, fuel, etc. so you don’t have to wear a belt or arm pocket or anything else! The less layers the better IMHO!
