Friday's Letters, Confessions and Fitness

This is a long post, but I love linking up for each of these on Friday and I love being able to look back and see what was going on.

dear kevin: Thank you for making this birthday extra special! And thank you for cooking and having dinner started so much recently! You are the best. I hit the jack pot when I married you! I love you! dear boys: You two are the cutest people on this planet. Hands down. I love your sweet hugs and kisses and all of your snuggles. I can't wait for some fun summer times! dear kayla: Thank you for my birthday card! It made my day! dear readers: Thank you for coming back again and again. I'm really humbled that you read my random thoughts and come back for more. I love talking with you and reading your blogs. dear God: Thank you for all of your answered prayers, grace and guidance. dear weekend: You and I have a lot to do. Please bring pretty weather!  


This week, I'm confessing that...

... I ate Key Lime Pie and a handful of potato chips for dinner last night.

... I'm already hooked on this new book I'm reading.

... I got super excited when I read that the spa I like is giving a $15 discount to April babies on an hour massage.

... I sometimes wish I didn't always have to be the bigger person which I always am.

... I really want a mini vacation to somewhere warm for just a few days or a long weekend.

... I'm really excited for Kaden's upcoming birthday!



This was a good week of workouts! I managed to run all but one day and do some other workouts (predominately abs) most days. One new thing I've done this week is slow down. I don't normally do recovery runs, but I decided to do some slower runs and my legs have thanked me. One of my 27 at 27 goals is to run each day for a month and I think April is going to be that month.

We have an extremely hectic week ahead, so I'm going to plan my workouts carefully. I want to start upping my weekly mileage to be consistently around 20 miles a week and I want to start doing this ab workout that Hungry Runner Girl has been talking about.

First of all -- you're a human blonde robot with all that working out. You go, Anna! Hehe ;)

Second, you're so welcome for the card. Hope your day was SO special!

Third, I am so jealous you had key lime pie for dinner tonight. That is so something I would do... mmm!

I always have trouble remembering what link ups are when and deciding. Love that you included all 3. I may or may not have had Cheetos and chocolate candy for dinner. Oops. :) have a great weekend sweet friend.
