Thick Thursday

2 must be my lucky number! :)
I'm down 2 pounds and 2 inches overall!

Weighed in this morning at 185!

Arms:   14" {loss of 1/2"}
Chest:   39"
Waist: 41 1/2" {loss of 1"}
Hips:    42" {loss of 1/2"}
Thighs: 26"

No bitching this week!
* and the crowd roars*

I'm actually quite pleased with these results.
Did I want to drop the pounds by leaps and bounds?
But I'm embracing the fact that a loss is a loss!

I currently am in love with eating healthy! And by that, I mean, I enjoy taking normally fattening recipes/meals and slimming them down with healthier ingredients!

When my mom was here, we made dinner every night. (not a normal phenomenon in our house. My poor hubby usually has to grab/make whatever he gets his hands on cos I usually make "boring" his opinion!) By not caving in to the not-as-healthy options for them, I tweaked some things to have the (relatively) same meal just in a healthier version for myself. And, I introduced my mom to some meals she would probably never have eaten in her lifetime!
Perhaps, I will post some of those recipes in the next day or so! :)

I'm also thoroughly enjoying getting back into running!
There is a 5K I'm thinking about doing in September.
The only thing holding me back is that I'm not quite sure if we'll be going up to Pittsburgh the same weekend as the 5K here for my brother-in-law's 30th birthday.
The race is to benefit to local twin 4-year-old girls who have been diagnosed with cerebral palsy.
I love a 5K.
But I love when it's to benefit a worthy cause even more!

One more thing...I went into the office yesterday to get some work done and i took one of those vain pics of myself in the mirror (I HATE THOSE PICS ON FACEBOOK!!!!!!!) cos I was digging my outfit and felt good about myself.
It's kinda blurry (which shows I'm not one of those girls that post mirror pic after mirro pic of themselves!!) but I was wearing a purple "mini" skirt from Victoria's Secret Pink shop and the top is from Forever 21 like 2 years ago.
Just humor me! :)

Giving that sass!
Happy Day!
