Catch-up and Thanksgiving Plans...

So apparently I've lost my blogging mojo.  I keep thinking "I need to blog" and then draw a blank.  Sorry folks.  It is what it is.
I'm looking forward to some family time Thursday.  I have every intention of enjoying my day but with that being said, I won't be going nutso.  The plan is to run 5 miles and lift Thanksgiving morning and then eat/drink in moderation.  My 2 pitfalls are usually my grandma's (from scratch) rolls and dessert.  I'll be enjoying one of each and savoring.  I also know that I cannot let it become a multi-day extravaganza (this is an important point for me). 
It feels good to have a plan to execute. 
I made it through the potential pitfall of birthday cake last week without any issues.  Made the cake, had a few licks of frosting, ate a couple bites off kiddos plate and moved on. Yay me :)
Sunday was "measurements" day.  I'm happy to report that I've lost another 1" on my waist, 1/2" on the bust and  1/4" on my hips.  I don't know if I'm going to hit my 149 lb goal by Thanksgiving but if I don't, I'm okay.  The scale is a fickle creature.  I'm losing inches, getting faster and stronger every day.  Those three things are more important to me than a number.  I almost broke an 8 min/mile pace last night on my 5 mile run (without paying attention)...that's HUGE to me. Woo-hoo for non-scale victories!!
Finally, I'll leave you with this little gem-
    Have a great day folks!

I go through blog ups and downs. Somedays I'm all in and other days I'm bored with it. Lately I've been trying to make fitness goals as opposed to weight goals. Amazingly my numbers on the scale are going down as I reach my fitness goals! I found that I'm a lot more excited and proud reaching the fitness goals.
