Things started out pretty hectic - hubby missed his bus so he took the car. Problem is, Monday is my BUSIEST day! After I walked Colin to school (in the RAIN I might add) I had to get Susie to her gymnastics within 30 minutes. YIKES! So I dropped him off and then hauled cookies to her lesson. So I ended up with an unplanned 4 mile run today! Most of it was downhill - which is surprisingly difficult to do for long distances! There were a few uphill doozies! PHEW! It was a good, unexpected workout! I was a little late getting her to class but not too bad! Then I went back to pick Colin up from school, fed them lunch, and headed out for Colin's lesson. Thank God gymnastics are almost over! Anyway, I picked up Pete on his lunch break. We dropped Colin off at his lesson and Susie off at the gym's daycare - and then Pete and I lifted weights together! It was SO GREAT to workout together! The only thing that tore my heart out was that Susie was crying when I went back for her. I guess another kid had a snack and she was very upset that she didn't have one. Note to self, pack Susie a snack next time! HA!
I've been eating really well today! I only went over 1 points, but since my weight watcher's pedometer says I earned 21 points today, I'm not going to fret about it! I may even have some sort of dessert. No clue what - but I'm jonesing for something sweet!
Tomorrow I have a 4.5 or 5 mile run planned. Hopefully I'm not too sore to do it! I'm actually looking forward to it. I'm not sure what happened, but it's like a switch flipped because now I really REALLY look forward to running! I actually enjoy myself now! How cool is that? I'm really looking forward to my 10k on Thanksgiving! I suspect it is not going to be as hard as my last one. Don't get me wrong- it will be hard, but I feel MUCH more prepared for this one!!
Thanks for reading - if anyone is even still out there! I hope you are! :-) -Monica
