Happy Friday the 13th

For your viewing pleasure on this wonderful Friday the 13th I give you me. Before and after my run this morning. I look much happier post run, though my face looks thicker, lol. Probably just the angle I have my phone. Love the red cheeks and hair that is anywhere but where it's suppose to be. I also don't usually run with my glasses on because I don't like the way they slide over my face.

Anyway, it's been a great week and I just thought I would post a few sentences to finish it out. I'm doing okay on my current dietbet game. I've lost 2.4 lbs so far and have 5 more to go. I have 20 days to do those 5 lbs, so I really need to get my rear in gear.

Other then all that, I really do not have much to update. I guess I'll leave you with a recipe for Cranberry muffins that I made for breakfast this morning. They were the perfect combination of sweet and tart and hit the spot.
