Also, I would like to confess now that my hope of losing or maintaining weight during the holidays did not happen. Through my own mediocre efforts at working-out/eating right, I ended up gaining about 3 lbs. I'm sitting at 152.2 today. Frustrating, but not awful. What is awful is how crummy I feel--lethargic, puffy, bloated, and fat. I know 3 lbs isn't super visible on a person--it's the mental part that is making me feel fat. So, time to hit it hard. I've only been half invested in this process over the last month or so. It is time to evaluate my priorities and get back on track.
Speaking of hitting it hard...I leave for Florida in less than 3 days to run my relay race. HOLY CRAP! It was about -5 degrees all weekend in Idaho where I was visiting family so I was unable (and definitely unwilling) to run outside in those nasty temperatures. The local gym was also closed, so there was no hope of training. That being said, I am not as trained as I would like to be for this race but I feel like it is manageable. I know I can do the big runs; I just know it's going to hurt! So please send nice thoughts my way!

I spent my New Years with family. My sister just had a baby so we went up to her house to see her and be with the other kids. It was such a wonderful way to spend the holiday! Rather than go into details, I thought I would just share some photos from the past two weeks throughout this post. These are a few of my very favorite things!
