TGIF and winner of the ENERGYbits giveaway!

I'm so glad it's Friday!  It hasn't been a bad week by any means; I'm just tired and looking forward to a moderately quiet weekend.

I am now officially three days soda free, which is pretty fantastic for me as of late.  I'm not quite where I want to be with my water intake, but I will keep working on that and keeping my Pepsi intake to a minimum. I also need to keep working on tracking my food on MyFitnessPal, but I consider this week to be somewhat successful.  I didn't track every day, but I did track my meals for a few days, so I took some baby steps. 

I was rather snack-y this afternoon, which I feel a little bit guilty about.  We signed holiday cards at work and I brought in a movie ("Elf") and some snacks to make the process a bit more fun.  In my defense, in addition to the junk food I bought, I also brought in a fruit tray.  Alas, I didn't even touch the fruit, as it was the Chex Mix calling my name.  It's ok, though.  It's was a minor lapse in judgement that won't be repeated any time soon.  

I'm hoping to get a run in this weekend and I'm planning to use the last of my ENERGYbits before I head out.  I'm excited to test them out again! Which brings me to the winner of my very first giveaway!  Thank you to everyone who participated; you all rock!  Congratulations to Jessica S. who won a sample of ENERGYbits!  Jessica, I can't wait to hear about your experience with them! 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  What are your plans for this weekend?

I love today's quote, because it sums up exactly what running means to me and what it has brought to my life. 

"I run because it's so symbolic of life. You have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles. You might feel that you can't. But then you find your inner strength, and realize you're capable of so much more than you thought."
