Random awesomeness from Michigan.

One of the best side effects of getting healthy {and putting it all over the Internet via blogger and Facebook} is motivating others to do the same.
Both my Aunt, Uncle,  husband, and Dad have all lost weight and taken up running.
We we heard they were having a 5k down the road from where we are staying we were all pumped to run our first family run together.


My main goal was to beat my Uncle T {in the green shirt}, what can I say I'm competitive!
He's got a good 6 inches on me and I know he can run faster than me, but I didn't let that stop me from whooping him by a good 45 seconds :)
In fact I ran a new PR, 26:25!

My husband didn't run the race, he didn't have his running gear, but we did squeeze in an Insanity workout together.


That shit was hard. I was sweating my ass off the entire 40 minutes.

Other than working out, the girls have been shopping. 
I found the cutest mirror in a barn off the side of the road for 10 bucks.
I have no clue where to put it, but it was too darling to pass up :)


We hit the beach yesterday.  The weather was nice, but the water chilly. 
I had to do a little motivating to get my cute cousin in the water.


The men went fishing, my husband caught his dinner.


I hope he knows he has to finish it off here, we will NOT be transporting fish back to Dallas on Wednesday.

Hitting up some more antique stores along the lake today, hoping to find some good deals. 
Like this awesome deer head.


I really wanted her, so I could do this....


I know it's a little freaky right?

Happy Monday!

  1. Great job at inspiring others!! I'd love to but my energy level is at zero lately! My mom actually mentioned I should get my thyroid checked... so that'll be happening and then maybe I can get motivated again!!! I did great for 3 months while in boot camp then that ended and I've been severly lacking. I wish I had your energy to get up (or you to motivate me, but not like how you pulled your cousin.. that's just funny!!)
