I even ventured out to a different bathroom mirror today- just for you. Bad lighting in that bathroom but I do like that full length mirror! The truth is that I've come to just love seeing mirrors and reflections of myself. I won't go so far as to say I'm vain. I'm just so stinkin' proud of the changes I've made and upheld. Yes, I am proud that I can run a mile and that I am continuing to plug along on my running. Even though this last hurdle has lasted longer than the first, I continue to try and try and that's better than not trying at all. I'm branching out to new exercises that work my body in different ways. I'm eager to push myself and do more. When I did those Zumba classes over the past week, I did not struggle. I was not exhuasted by the end- not even after the 2 hour session (broken out into 3 sessions with short breaks in between). I was sweating, my heart rate was up but I was still going. On Wednesday, I even went from Zumba to the treadmill and did a mile (walking and running) just because I needed to run. So I'm finding my reflection anywhere I can and I am enjoying catches these little reminders of how far I've come, how much hard work I've done, and I am feeling very proud to FEEL SO GOOD!

What I Used To Eat
I started my day on Thursday with a fruit smoothie. I had plain kefir and frozen fruit that needed to be used. Peaches, strawberries, mango, plain kefir, some locally grown honey, a little water. Delicious and at least 2 servings of fruit, maybe even 3. For dinner, rump roast was already cooked and I made some peas and potatoes for the family. I had a little meat and some potato... but I loaded up on spaghetti squash. I'm just in awe of the changes and so grateful that whatever needed to click, clicked. Because I would have certainly killed my body had I continued with my previous diet.

The Crazy Bug Bit Me!
Today, I must have had a high fever or something because I decided that all of his hard work would be best showcased with some lovely flowers. I also planted flowers in the tiered wall he built last year.
The blue pot on the porch? Why, that's a strawberry pot! I planted 3 strawberries plants in the side bubbles and gerbera daisies in the top. Isn't it pretty?
I hope to start work on the raised veggie garden (the bed that Jeff built last year) in the next weekend or 2. My mom has started tomatoes that she'll bring up. I picked up a few brussels sprouts plants and some banana pepper plants. Yum! We'll see what else I pick up to plant in there- I'm open to suggestions! I'm thinking 2 or 3 tomato plants will be plenty. And then I'd love to have a variety of other veggies growing! Here's my lilac bush a few weeks ago... And a shot of the lilacs today! They smell divine! Hooray for springtime!!
