Happy 1st Friday of November!!! Are you ready for a great weekend? We are doing a local race tomorrow morning. Hubby running the 5K and I am walking the 1 mile. This race specifically states no walkers on the 5K course. I am cool with that. My surgery is TWO WEEKS from today. I am both nervous and ready for this. Nervous because I don’t know how long I will be “down”, in pain, etc. Ready because once I have it, my leg can start healing and hopefully I will be able to start walking faster and longer.
Also on tap this weekend is a trip to Target and a wedding (my cousin’s). Very excited we get an extra hour this weekend. Don’t forget to change your clocks!
I succeeded in my goal of NO Halloween candy yesterday. I allowed myself a few pieces on Halloween, but didn’t want it to continue for a second day. Is there Halloween candy at the office? YES. The majority of it is in the back – far, far from my desk. I did keep 5 pieces at my desk for “emergencies.”
Check out my sweet Halloween gift from Jenn at fitappetit.com . (There are a few items not shown.) Jenn and I are both Girls Gone Sporty ambassadors and some of us participated in a Halloween swap. I hope she enjoyed the package I sent her. Prayers for her since she has been without power for days due to the Hurricane.

15 or 30 Minute Incline Walking Workout by Julie – Julie always suggests great workouts. Looking for something short – do 1 round of her workout. Have a little more time – just repeat it. Hey dog Sadie is also ADORABLE.
168 Hours: Where Does The Time Go? by Caitlin – We all have the same amount of time in a week, just seems some get more done than others. I enjoyed this post by Caitlin and am thinking about getting the book as well.
