Day 78 20 Year High School Reunion and a Forgotten NSV!!!

Woo hooo! Go Bulldogs! Springdale High School Class of 1990 Rules!!!

Had a great time at my class reunion today and tonight! I saw a lot of folks that I have not seen in years! I got caught up and caught a few folks up and just generally had a great time. We went to the football game but wound up leaving early to get to the restaurant so we could order food without it getting spit in for being there so late, oh and we were getting our butt's stomped on the field too. I saved about 700 calories for the meal last night and didn't use but about 300 of them! We had a good time laughing and talking and reminiscing and it seriously was about the people and not the food! I did get a couple hundred more calories when we got home at midnight as I was starving by then, but the day was qualified as a huge success!

I have been slacking in one of my measurement challenges that I set out in the beginning of my journey. I have not been measuring how big around my belly is lately. I remembered as such today and decided to get a measurement. If memory serves, I believe the last measurement was 53 inches at its widest point. Well the new measurement is now 49 inches at its widest point!!! I have knocked off 4 inches and gotten that bad boy down in the 40's!!! Monster is losing the war!!! Yeah!!!

I sure hope everyone as a great weekend and be thinking of me as I make another push for the sub 45 minute 5k please!

(I am writing this post actually on Saturday morning and am on my second cup of coffee. The enthusiasm may be a bit over the top! Sorry!)


  1. Way to rock the reunion!! Don't you just LOVE not being ruled by food!

    Wishing you the best on your 5K...you're gonna do great!

  2. You must be a morning person! Ha! :-)
    I'm glad you had a nice time at your reunion! Go tear 'em up on the field today!
