The most AMAZING day and Giveaway winner.

Yesterday was an AMAZING day. In order of importance....

 First and foremost my new baby niece Gwenyth Grace was born. I was going crazy all day because I accidently left my cell phone at home, so had to resort to facebook to find out she was born and to see photos. She is the first grand daughter / niece in our family and I cannot wait to meet her :) 

Second, it was the last day of my Ultimate Reset-- woo woo. Lucky for me I started that special time of the month earlier this week so I'm still a little bloated, but as of right now I'm down 11lbs and 7 inches. I'm going to check again tomorrow / Friday when my bloating finally subsides to see if numbers change, then I'll post a photo. I'll do a whole follow up post on the reset later in week, but for now, let's just leave it at it was the best decision and 

To celebrate being able to work out I already went to yoga this morning, will go for a lunch run this afternoon, and round out the day with bootcamp. I also had my first cup of coffee today- golden french toast- YUM. I have my biometric screening tomorrow at work, so the diet will still be the same today and then tomorrow I might be daring and add in some eggs and we'll go from there...

Lastly, I finally joined the Nashville Sportsleague and registered to play kickball this spring!
I've played the past 3 seasons on the work league at lunch, and will continue to do so, however I need to get out and meet more people in the area and thought this was the perfect way to do so. Often times the league sells out quick, so I was excited that I was able to find a spot for Tuesday nights!

Anything exciting happen to you yesterday?

What are your thoughts on yoga?
I made the mistake of telling the instructor (one of my friends at work) that my hips were super tight and I need to strengthen them... sure enough we focused A LOT on opening the hips up and stretching them. It sucked at the time, but now I feel like a million bucks.... well almost. 


  1. Awww congrats on all accounts! Yay for being an Auntie, she is absolutely adorable and you will love spoiling her wrotten. Congrats on your success with the challenge and have playing kick-ball. I am jealous that sounds like a blast!

  2. Awwww what a sweet face!!! Congrats Auntie!!! I really could use some bending and stretching in my life!!!

  3. Congrats! she looks so sweet! Almost makes me want another...almost.

    And congrats on 11 pounds!

  4. Oh my goodness! Congrats on your beautiful niece! I love her name! My niece turned 18 a few months ago and while it's still crazy to me she is so old, I adore her. You are going to be a wonderful auntie!
    Kickball sounds fun! I'm sure it will be a total riot, can't wait to hear more!

  5. Adorable niece- so exciting!! And wow, 11 pounds? That's impressive. Glad you're back to running!

  6. Congratulations to the new aunt! She is adorable! Oh and I love yoga :) I only wish I could squeeze more than 1 time during the week.

    I'm looking forward to more details of the reset. So tempting!!

  7. Check out that beautiful baby girl!!! She looks cute and some babies are all odd colored but she's not! Plus, she looks like she smiles in her sleep, I wonder if I do that too? Probably not.

    You've lost 11 LBS!!? That's freaking fantastic! It's not easy losing weight ever. Keep it rolling or should I say "kickin" now that you're gonna be playing kick ball again!? :)

  8. Yoga is so good for runners!! I always find an excuse not to do though. I don't enjoy it while I'm doing it, but feel so much better afterwards.
    Congrats on being an aunt!!

  9. smart, smart on the yoga! your niece is BEAUTIFUL!! Hope you get in see her IRL soon :)
