Making Strides

I haven't posted in a while, mostly because I have been ridiculously busy!  Shortly after my last post I flew across the country for the weekend to see one of my good friends get married.  It was an absolutely beautiful weekend and she was one of the most beautiful brides I've ever seen!

I got back on Monday from that extravaganza and left early Saturday morning to go pick up the latest editions to the Lake Placid troop of the Smith Family-Sam, Ruby, and Harriet.  I drove down to Virginia and my mom drove up from Orlando and we did the switch.  Since getting here they have become more at home, but those first few days were rough-we spent all of Sunday driving home and then Monday I headed back to work and the dogs proceeded to bark all day, apparently because I got a mean note--since then they are doing a better job.

Anyway...  We got to stay home this pas weekend and sorta get everything back together.  Right now they are passed out on their beds-we went to Henry's Woods after work and they got to pretend that they were wild dogs, they ran all over the trail.  Sammy got brave and ran halfway down the hill-not on the trail through the trees!

The other thing that came into my life since I last posted--this guy...
This is an OCD/super competitive girl's dream!  It syncs with my phone to tell me how many calories I have burned, how many steps I've taken and basically it rocks.  Part of my problem was not knowing how many calories I was actually burning, now I know and I can better tailor the calories I take in to make sure I am running on a deficit every day to keep losing.  I cannot express my love for this little guy-I have already lost 8 pounds since I first put him on 12 days ago...  I see beautiful things for our future ;)

That's all for now, I have another exciting update but you'll just have to wait!
