Where have you been all my life?

Well, more like, where have I been for the past 2 weeks....

Desserts-o-plenty

My fiance's birthday was 2 weekends ago and we celebrated at dinner with friends, then the bar, then we drove to my parents and had birthday cake for him the next night. I made a rainbow Italian cookie inspired cake. Omg, it was amazing and beautiful:

Then I had the 5K in my home time. Following that, I was blessed enough to work from home the three days leading up to Thanksgiving, which allowed me to spend tons of time with my beloved family. I was desparately craving time with them, as I hadn't seen them in a month and a half. It also allowed me to bake some yummy desserts for Thanksgiving:

Exercise Update

In other news, I have retired my running schedule for the winter. If I get the chance, I will run on the treadmill at the gym, but it has gotten too dark and too cold for me to continue outside runs. So, I switched back to a regular rotation of the Shred on Sunday. I started small with Level 1 and 5lb weights. Ouchie Ouchie Ouchie! I totally neglected strength training to get ready for the 5K and I am paying for it.

Thank you!

A big thank you for this award :-) It's from Bare It All, one of my favorite blogs to keep up with. She's got a very realistic approach to weightloss and I feel like every woman can relate to her and get tips from her.

I've never been good about posting rules and/or passing on blog awards so why start now? Sorry, I suck when it comes to blog awards.

The shred is such a killer, but I'm with you- it's too dark & too cold to run outside anymore.

Those desserts look great! I have a major addiction to sweets...yum.
