I've never been there but the brochure looks nice

40 minutes Elliptical

40 minute run
3.3 miles...5 minute run/1 minute walk

40 minute Elliptical

20 minute Elliptical
20 minute strength

My run Tuesday was really good. I felt good...trucked along at a slower speed (4.8)...but kept the 5/1 ratio up the entire 40 minutes and felt good.

Tuesday also included some cross training in the woods chasing these two:

Kozmo had his leash on but still managed to take off with Roxie Doxie. Mom and I trekked through woods and roads and, after an hour, found them. They were actually pretty close to Mom and Dad's...Koz had wrapped his leash around a poll and Roxie was hanging out. We are not sure if she was keeping him company or teasing him b/c she was free and he was caught!

I planned on only taking Thursday off...but I made a game day decision to stay in bed Wednesday morning too. Happy Anniversary to me!

The rest of the story:
(Paul Harvey's wife died of cancer...this is my little tribute to the two of them.)

Our anniversary was great. Scott brought me flowers to work. That sweet boy actually thought to get flowers in our wedding colors:

(a little fuzzy...thanks to the camera phone!)

We had a great dinner at the Bald Headed Bistro. It was GREAT! S told them it was our anniversary so they brought a special desert, wished us Happy Anniversary several times and called us Mrs. and Mr. Cooper all night...pretty cool!

Overall..a GREAT day!

Thursday afternoon I got home from work and planted our anniversary gift from Momma and Dad Man, a beautiful Lilac:

Last night S and I went to J Alexander' of our favorite places. We decided to be cheep (a relative term at J's) and get soup and salad. When we ordered our waiter said, "Is that all?" and as you can imagine our service went downhill from there. I was really disappointed b/c they are usually on point there.

We did decide to hit Bruster's afterward and if anyone is looking to be bad their new Key Lime Pie ice cream is to die for!

Chillin' out tonight...if only I had a Miny Julup (my pinot will do!)!

Plan for the week:
Tomorrow: Spinning
Monday: 40 minute run
Tuesday: 20 minute Elliptical/20 minute swim
Wednesday: 40 minute Elliptical
Thursday: 40 minute run

Take Care

I get a little bit closer
Everyday is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine

Those roses are gorgeous...From what I could tell they looked like peace roses maybe? If so, those are my favorites...and then the lilacs...those are my other favorite (I pick flowers on smell!!). The picture of the fuzzy kids is great!

Looks like your workouts are going really well! Great job! 2 points for ice cream on WW is good! Just to give you an idea of what it means, everything has a point value and I am allowed to eat 22 points in a day. I ALWAYS leave room for ice cream or the like at the end of the day! :) Love the roses and the lilac! Have a great week!
