Weigh In (1/30) + Weekend update

Well, another weekend has come and gone... they always go by so fast! We had another taste of springtime weather--I'm ready for it to be spring for real!

I was up 2 pounds at Saturday's weigh in; I can totally blame Aunt Flo for that one, as she made a surprise visit yesterday when I wasn't expecting her for at least another week! For the record, I really don't like her. At least that explains why all I wanted was junk food for the last week!

I got my RoadID on Friday; I'm so excited! It fits on my FitBit, so I don't have to wear yet ANOTHER bracelet (I already feel silly when I wear my FitBit and my Garmin when I run.)

"As long as it takes" is my weight loss AND running mantra; I'm slow at both ;)
On Saturday, we went to the zoo with the kids and Marc's parents, and later we went out for super tasty dinner at Brigtsen's. Why does food have to be so delicious?! After that it was nap time, and I took the opportunity to venture out with my bike all by myself; New Orleans drivers are kinda crazy, and several cyclists are killed each year. However, I pulled up my big girl pants and rode to the library to return some books, and then down Esplanade Avenue to CC's Coffee to enjoy a few quiet moments. 

Sitting in front of CC's where I could keep an eye on my bike and enjoy the view
Sunday marked 8 years since my mom died. It was easier this year than it has been, but either way I knew I wanted to get out and enjoy the day. So I got up and did my 4-mile run that was scheduled (my longest run to date!), then Marc and I took the kids to their Great-Grammy's house to hang out with Marc's parents and grandparents while we went to Mass. They live about 3/4 of mile from the church, so we decided to walk since the weather was so nice. For the record, we do typically take the kids with us to Mass, but our RCIA class now dismisses just before Communion and we go talk about the service; the kids are way too distracting and make it difficult to get anything out of the dismissal so they probably won't be coming to Mass with us again until Easter.

Later in the day, we loaded the kids into the bike trailer and took a ride around town and then to eat dinner at Parkway Bakery. It's SO YUMMY. I love their gumbo and fried pickles. I could probably eat that every day and never get sick of it.

I wound up getting a TON of exercise on Sunday, and was just under 20,000 steps for the day!
