Didn't Have an Acceptance Speech Ready

I will start out by saying I didn't get to run last night.  I'm not going to waste another post on why, and what I could of done to still fit it in...I didn't do it, going to try harder tonight, and leave it at that.

Now, for the fun stuff.  A few days ago, I received my first Blog award.  Katie, from My Freaking Awesome Body thought I was worthy of receiving the Happiness 101 award.  Thank you Katie!!


#1 - Post who gave you this award. I did that, but I will do it again.  Katie from My Freaking Awesome Body honored me with this award.  She is a fellow weight loss blogger - and I love reading her blog.

#2 - Name 10 things you like:  Spending time with my hubby and kids, teaching, reading, blogging (duh), Facebook, running (although you wouldn't think so lately), hanging out with friends, shopping, helping others, and Winter.

#3 - Give this award to 10 other people and notify them with a comment. Okie Dokie!!

Here are my 10 picks to receive this award:

  1. Colleen from The Fit Bee:  A fellow weight loss blogger - she has been a great support to me, and I love her blog.
  2. Maggie Ann from Maggie's Losing It:  This woman shows me what true motivation can do.  She's dropped over 100lbs in 6 months.  She has also become a friend.
  3. Jack S*it from Jack S*it Getting Fit:  Thus far, I haven't found a more hilarious blog.  Not only has he lost a ton of weight, but he's shared his journey through humor - hilarious, spit coffee out of your nose, laugh until you cry humor. 
  4. Renee from Renee's Ramblings:  Renee isn't a weight loss blogger, but still an awesome blog.  She talks about family, and always has fun stuff to share.  She is a friend of mine - a very good friend.
  5. An Ounce a Day:  This blog shares an amazing woman's journey one day at a time.  She keeps it simple, but I love checking in each day and seeing her progress.
  6. Fat Girl vs World from I Go Through Life in Inches:  I first discovered this blog while following her on Twitter.  I love her point of you on things, and her blog is always one of my "must reads" each day.
  7. Mrs.FatAss from Did I Just Eat That Out Loud:  There's not much I can say here except DAMN! This woman can write!  Really great blog!
  8. Kyokocake from ...Like a Fat Kid Loves Cake:  This woman is nothing short of amazing.  Not only does she share her amazing journey, but she also does giveaways of things that she wins.  Her kindness and motivation is a MUST follow!!
  9. JewliaGoulia - This woman has made some SERIOUS progress, and she always gives me the dose of motivation I need.  I also love that she shares a lot of photos.
  10. Sharlie from Mom on a Mission:  A fellow mommy trying to focus on getting fit.  Always shares her ups and downs...a great blog!
OK, so that's it.  I want to thank Katie, again, and say that I truly feel honored that you enjoy my blog enough to give it an award.  :)

Tonight is my first Open House.  That means I will be at the school until about 7:30.  That time of night is my favorite time to run, so that's what I'm going to do.  I've seemed to become comfortable with getting up at 4am, now - so that should mean an increase in my post count again.  I've been doing what I love - writing in the morning - so that's what I'm going to keep doing.  That makes me one step closer to adjusting to the change of my schedule.  I managed to fit my blog in - now it's time to focus on getting my running back.

Till next time.  ;)
