{Semi} Wordless Wednesday: Running the River

Last night I took a nice slow run along the San Antonio river after my Nia class. It was amazing.

The path is slightly hilly and curvy which keeps things interesting. Even better is the landscaping; it’s phenomenal. So many fresh flowers and herbs I was enchanted by aromas as I ran. It was just what I needed.

I wish I could have taken more photos, maybe next time. These are from my starting/ending point. They hardly do the location justice. This is one of my favorite spots in San Antonio and I cannot wait to come back for another run real soon.

Do you happen to know what kind of flowers these are? They are so beautiful. And huge. They are almost the size of my head!

Thanks for reading!

Changing of the Guard

20111207-061219.jpg

It was time to replace my scale after a few weeks of being somewhat unreliable, i.e. not turning on, not detecting weight/pressure, and although it isn’t dead completely I just couldn’t deal with the uncertainty anymore.

It’s Freaking Cold Outside

20111207-061442.jpg

It was 28 degrees when I left my house this morning. See, it gets cold in Texas.

Car O’ Ice

My Green Monster

Since I finished off my tub of Amazing Grass Chocolate Superfood I decided to try out some of their other flavors. Today I used Amazing Grass Orange Dreamsicle Superfood (which I was kind of hesitant to buy) in my smoothie and it was fabulous!

It’s the Little Things

20111207-061819.jpg

Thirty-three is not only my age it’s also my favorite number and whenever it pops up I take as a sign if good things to come. This morning I was happy because I had 33 emails!

My Fitness Tree

How exciting! The base of the tree is covered! Yay!

Hope you have a fabulous day and thanks for reading!

{Semi} Wordless Wednesday: Progress Photos

Twice this week I had to email pictures of my progress so far on my weight loss journey, more on the reasons why later, and thought I would share them with you. It was crazy to look back on these photos and see how much I have changed over the past nine months. It made me happy and proud of the progress I have made, sad I ever neglected my body so much to get to that point and anxious and excited for what lies ahead in this joinery. So mixed emotions to say the least.

Here they are; pictures from my journey in chronological order from March to November.

{Semi} Wordless Wednesday: Pictures from my Dad

I love my Dad; he is quirky and goofy. He is also opinionated, outspoken and stands up for what he believes in. To give you a better glimpse inside his mind here are some pictures he sent me yesterday.

In the email there were these six pictures and no text.

This was his Facebook status yesterday.

Yes, I blame my father completely for my crazy oddball behavior. It’s the best trait I could have inherited! 🙂

{Semi} Wordless Wednesday: Doggie Edition

Last Friday night while doing my vlog I had to clear out all the pictures stored on my phone to make some space. Since then I have only taken pictures of my dogs. So here is Wordless Wednesday Dog Edition starring Ruby the Boston Bulldog and Maggie the Yellow Lab. Enjoy!

{Semi} Wordless Wednesday: Catching Up

I went to Ft. Hood for Paul's graduation from WLC. He made the Commandant's List. I am so proud of him!

The long bridge at LBJ Park on the Salado Greenway is actually called Morningstar Boardwalk which is named for Army Staff Sgt. Christopher Morningstar, a local serviceman who died in Iraq

Went for a hike with SF around Commanche Lookout Park. This tower was at the top. I am guessing this is where they looked for Commanches? On our hike we also saw a bunny. So cute!

Yummy vegan sandwich from Twin Sisters Bakery. It was loaded with fresh veggies and miso peanut butter. An odd combo but it worked well.

Paul and I took the girls to their favorite place- the dog park. Ruby really was much more excited than she looks.

Maggie had so much fun that she was smiling happy on the ride home.

In the waiting area with Paul before his eye surgery. I actually watched the procedure and wanted to take pictures but there was a nurse talking to me the whole time so I couldn't take any.

I knew I was fast but I had no idea they needed to post signs telling me to slow down 😉

Finally breaking in my new sneakers. I love them!

 

 

Thanks for your help. I would be lost without it 😉

Pretty flowers!

My father bought this from a young artist at an exhibition at a local college. The young artist just happened to be my wildly talented cousin, John.
