Dashing through the snow

This is the view from my window... I woke up this morning to a lovely dusting of snow and decided it was the perfect opportunity to get my bum out of bed and run four miles. I feel totally invigorated now after lounging about for the greater part of yesterday evening watching Harry Potter.

I was 126.6 after my run this morning, so my plan is to eat a decent breakfast (1 banana with 2T natural peanut butter and 1/2c plain soy milk) as my only meal of the day. I'm eating it now and I'm not sure if I can even finish. I normally eat rice cakes for breakfast! Seriously, I left about a 1/4 of the banana in the bowl, I just can't do it. Anyway... I figure this breakfast should tide me over until (hopefully!) tomorrow. I need to hydrate well today because the air inside is very dry now. Lots of tea, water, and seltzer for me today.

Juan is coming on the 17th,  I hope he is surprised with my weight loss. The last time I saw him I was about ten pounds more than this. It's funny, because my clothes are obviously fitting differently, but when I look in the mirror I see absolutely no changes. I am still dissatisfied, particularly with my arms and legs. I now have eleven days to get to 125 or under.

I am going to get to leaving some comments. I was terrible over the weekend and barely wrote on anyone's blogs! Je suis désolée mes petites fleurs!

P.S. I will definitely post pictures of our new cat very soon... little Moses :)
P.P.S. Mich, I got the Evian spray at Sephora.

Which brand of natural peanut butter do you use?

You certainly have a lot of discipline to feel encouraged to run in the snow. Anything below 45F and I can't be arsed.

You are sooo dedicated to run in the snow! I can barely get myself to leave my house in this! Lol

wowww! The last time I tried to run in the cold my lungs froze, so i decided I'd never do that again. idk how you do it! I'm sure Juan will think you are just beautiful, and yall will have the best time :))

I'm so impressed you ran in the snow! We have so much here that you can barely walk and the gym is only opening a few hours a day. Scotland doesn't know what to do with snow.
You can definitely get to under 125 in 11 days, I believe in you. :)

C'est pas grand chose, mon ami! (I love online translators!)

That photo...the snow...is beuwteefull!!! What a gorgeous view!

The hotel is so romantic and the restaurant looks fantastic!! I'm such a sucker for Mediterranean food. Exquisite menu, healthy too.

I'm so excited for you, I hope you guys have a time to remember.

I understand that feeling of dissatisfaction, but I've seen the photo's, you're hot! Juan's gonna be so impressed!

Sorry about the essay. Have a great evening. XXX.

That hotel looks nice, and the restaurant sounds yummy. You'll definitely get under 125 in eleven days! Especially with the way you run. <3
