Science and Running

Hi everyone. I still need to finish up posting pictures from Thanksgiving, and will try to get on that before Winter Break is upon us :). I had a subpar week for running this past week, since my cold got worse. I even took a day off from work which I generally only do if I'm about to die. It wasn't that bad, but I decided not to push it and use one of my many sick days. I ended up with no running the whole week, but did get in a fun run with another couple on Saturday and a hard 'long' (6.37 miles) run on Sunday. This week I'm hoping to keep a normal schedule, even with all the present wrapping, craft supply buying, cooking baking, and lesson planning I need to do to make this a good week at school :). The kids are making ornaments for their parents, which is fun, since I generally never get to do crafty things with them (ah....state standards). We are making cute Christmas Trees out of wooden spoon sticks, and wreaths out of puzzle pieces. They're having fun, and so am I!

This is always a fun week, even though the kids are a bit nutty. Lots to get done in the next 4 days though.

I'll leave you with a backwards picture of the craft I did today for science. I took it with my computer and can't seem to rotate it, but you can still get the gist :). I was telling my sister about it and she wanted to see it, so here it is!

Have great ones all :D

edited to add: I have been pretty quiet about my efforts at eating healthier lately, but I need to brag because I am (as of tonight) down 17.8 lbs and am officially no longer overweight :D. I have about 7 to lose to reach my lifetime weight and another 10 after that to reach my goal wedding weight. I'm feeling really good though, and loving that I can be losing weight while still enjoying good food and good wine. Running really does make everything wonderful :D

Yeah, the kids are nutty, and sooooo much to do in the next 4 days! :)
Awesome job on the weight-loss front! Stay healthy, and you will have no problems I think. Keep it up!
