Excitement Ensues

3 awesome things to be excited about right now!

First, I won Pumpkin to Princess' Sparkly Skirt give away! HOORAY! I chose the mermaid green sparkly running skirt (that goes perfectly with my green Zensah compression sleeves) for the Disney Princess half outfit. I will definitely post pictures when I get the skirt in. Now all I need is a purple top and some green shoes haha. So, Thanks to Amy for having such a fun give away!

Another thing that I am excited about is the fact that I FINALLY broke through my weight plateau!
If anyone remembers, I was stuck at 212-215 for like 4 months. But, the other day, I got on the scale and low and behold 206!!! FRIGGIN SWEET! I am now 7 pounds away from being under 200 for the first time in almost 9 years. Holy crap crackers Batman! 7 pounds before I accomplish my first of many goals!

Goal 1: Get under 200lbs.
Goal 2: Get under 180lbs.
Goal 3: Get to a comfortable size 10 or 12.

The way my bone structure is, I don't want to lose too much weight because I think I will look awkward. But a healthy size 10 or so should about do it for me. I'm so close, I can taste it!

Speaking of tasting things........   Finally, the third thing I am excited about is this:


Pumpkin Pie and Apple Cider Yogurts?! As soon as I saw them at Target, I snatched them up. They are on an awesome sale as well- 10 for $5! I got 3 pumpkin pie and 2 apple ciders (I have to share haha) but I fully intend on going back and stocking up some more. The pumpkin pie one is my all time favorite. It's 170 calories, but it's perfect for breakfast, as a snack at work, or even something after I workout. The apple cider is only 80 calories which is fantastic. Needless to say, my two favorite things of the fall season have just gotten even better! YUMMY!!!

What's your favorite thing about Fall?

Congrats girl!!! We have very similar goals. I am working on hitting my 175 goal and then to a size 10. Please let me know when you get your skirt. Hahaha...I saw something really funny on my run last night and though of you. I saw an old man ride one of those old time bikes with a huge wheel in front and a tiny wheel in the back.
