Headed West

I get to see the mountains today :)

I had been thinking about taking a trip to visit some of my favorite people, and after some discussion Curtis agreed that he could hold down the fort while I took a solo trip. It's been about 4 years since I have been to Denver, so I am looking forward to reacquainting myself with one of my favorite US cities. I have a car rented and a docket full of activities for my 4 day stay. I can't wait!!

This vacation is also coming at the perfect time. Do you ever just have those days where you need to see your girlfriends?? Sometimes talking on the phone just isn't enough. I haven't seen the girls I am visiting in a long time, and since then, both have had babies. I am excited to meet the latest additions to our "friend family" and to have some time to catch up with a few of my greatest girlfriends.

In other news, I stepped on the scale this morning since I won't have access to my scale tomorrow. 194.3!! I have lost 35.7 pounds since November 1. The changes are really starting to take place since I have incorporated heavier lifting sessions and longer runs into my routine. It's amazing how much of a difference I feel in my body, my mind and my endurance level. On Monday, I ran a 5k on my treadmill in just over 32 minutes. Not bad considering I was running it in 40 minutes 2 weeks ago :)

It's wet and rainy here today, but there are clear skies in Denver. Rocky Mountains here I come!!

Enjoy the weekend!!
