Weekend Update

 
Happy Monday little darlings! If we're being honest I'm tired and STILL battling these allergies or cold or whatever it is that keeps me coughing at night. Good news though, my voice is back! But Monday comes whether we are ready or not, right? So let's make the best of it.
 
My weekend was nothing out of the ordinary. Well kinda. Saturday would have made ONE YEAR since Skye and I got engaged. If you are a new follower then you can find that lovely story here. It's definitely one of my favs. It's absolutely in-freaking-sane to me how much my life has changed in one year. I try to view these changes as a blessing - definitely one in disguise - but still a blessing. I know that one year from now I will look back and hopefully feel refreshed that these changes took place in my life for a reason. Remember last week I told you March is all about ME and finding some inner peace with my current life status!
 
#30milesin30days - My little heart was just thrilled to see some IG pictures and tweets about you guys logging your miles this weekend! I actually feel a little behind because my stupid crud that I'm battling! Saturday I did not make my way to the gym at all. I'm at a grand total of 3 miles right now. 27 more to go! I will be doing a challenge update on Thursday and hopefully I can figure out how to do a link-up so we can share our stories!
 
Straight from Instagram {nikkib918} I bring to you -- my weekend!
My Polar FT4 HRM came in the mail and I was soooooo excited! I'm cheap so I've been lusting over this baby forever now, but I finally treated myself and took the splurge. I found a shop on eBay that did free shipping so $65 shipped worked for me.

LOVE! Out to dinner for a friend's birthday Saturday night.


Went to church Sunday for the first time in a LONG time. The message was about having faith over fear, especially when you feel like it's too late for you to be starting over in your life. Ring a bell or what?

These little devils got delivered yesterday from my neighbor. I only got one box thankfully!

You are so amazing and you're being so strong. I am so proud of you and I know that you will only continue to get stronger, you beautiful princess!

You are an amazingly strong person Nikki! March will be your best month yet!

And I forgot to tell you, I'm doing the 30 miles in 30 days deal too. I need some motivation to get back to it!

I was worried when I read the first line about it being your ONE Year engagement anny, but just in your writing I can feel your strength and I can honestly say I am not "worried" or "hurting" for you anymore (that sounds way worse than how I actually mean it so please don't take it the wrong way;)

I am so happy that you are finding such great things in yourself, those things that all of us can see and why we love you so much!

I love watching you develop into the girl you are meant to be, and I've been in your place and know that rejuvinating feeling. you are going to do AHHHMazing things (like get in to the best shapppe evvvvaaa! ;) and live out all your dreams and I am SO excited to watch you do it.


xo
lovvvess you!

Whitney Leigh said...

thiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnn miiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnntttttssssssssss! sorry. way to excited about those.

you're such a doll. glad you had an awesome weekend. I also missed a day this weekend, but I am also at 3 miles, so I will make up for it. :)

Sarah @ It's a Vol said...

Hooray for March being all about you! I might have to join in in this 30 miles thing!

PS I used a polar watch for about two years when I was "training" for my wedding body and then for a 1/2 marathon! I loved that thing. I ought to see if I can dig it up!

Pamela said...

Not sure why I don't follow you on Instagram! Finding you now :) Dinner with friends is the absolute best! Something about how those church sermons come at the exact time you need them!

SHUG IN BOOTS {Beth} said...

I haven't been to church in forever either. And every time I do go, I cry most of the time. Why? I'm not even sure. (The crying started before the ectopic, so who knows.) But - I LOVE when you feel like the message was just for you that day. A very simple, but real reminder that God is still there and He's still got you. :)

Pamela said...

oh god I haven't seen girl scout cookies anywhere yet but I will def pick a box up if I see them!! so how are you going to keep track of everyone's miles? You are a mile ahead of me, I only did 2 on Sat while I was doing interval runs but I need to track them! I need to get a polar watch! have a great week love!

Helene said...

you are awesome and incredible. that is all.

Jess Casey said...

So proud of you girl, between the mental strength and now getting your body all sassy! Keep it up xoxo

Rachel Silski said...

So 3 boxes of girl scout cookies may have made it into my house..this weekend.

keepingupwithkristen said...

Love that you're making March all about YOU. I also love how strong you've been lately about this whole situation. I definitely admire you and I'm so proud to call you a friend!

So glad you went to church! Isn't that crazy how the messages relate to you? It's neat knowing God brought you there on that day..for that reason!

LOVE YOU!

Faith said...

oh goodness, what i would do for a box of thin mints right now.

i'm at 4 miles :) 26 to go!

Wine and Summer said...

You are amazing girl!

I refused to buy any cookies this year! We'll see how long I hold out!

Samm said...

CALLIE said...

Ok, your heart monitor thing... Should I get?? I've been contemplating forever. AAAHH

claire said...

Those little girl scouts outside of the grocery get me every time! I've been eating Samoas for breakfast with my coffee!
I fell off the church wagon a year ago and need to get back on! I could use a good sermon! Good for you! And it's awesome that your making March all about you! Love this post!

Nichole said...

Haha, I caved and got thin mints, too. I'm calling those so called "girl scouts", crack dealers instead, lol.

Kristin said...

I want to get a polar watch!!

Ashley Barnhill said...

I think you have come SO far in the last couple of months! I'm so proud of you! You've kept a positive outlook even when you didn't want to. Keep it up girl!! And side note: love your new watch! Now I want a matching one!

smk053078 said...

Girl, you have come a long way in just a few months. I am so proud of you. Time will continue to help with the healing and I tell you, that was NO coincidence about the topic of the sermon. God is speaking to you!! Love you!

My-cliffnotes said...

Kathryn said...

Ashleigh Day said...

I have been following for a few days now so I am going to have to go read how he purposed. I am sure it was cute to the both of you! & what is 30 miles in 30 days? do you just walk 1 mile a day for 30 days? or is there more too it? Also I am glad you had a fun weekend!

Adriana Lucia said...

Katie said...

Did you go to church alone? I've been wanting to go every now and then also, but my husband is less than interested in joining. Im kind of nervous to go alone.

I ordered two boxes from one girl scout and 6 from another :) whoops! hahah

Jamie said...

I am so jealous! I want one of those Polar watches. Maybe thats what I will ask for for my birthday.

Makaila said...

Girl, you are AMAZING. Your strength never ceases to amaze me. You address life head on, you should be very proud.

And this 30 in 30 thing seems... Doable! What a great idea.

Kelly said...

Aww loved your engagement story! It always brings tears to my eyes anytime I read a story like that because in the back of my mind, I am so anxious and excited for that to be me one day :)

I also have that heart rate monitor. I have tried using it a couple times, but it didn't work properly :( I think I might have it figured out now though. Love to hear how yours works for you!
