Awesome day today!

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
