Weekend was a whirlwind as expected. No control as expected.
Saturday was the worst yard sale ever excepting that we had fun poking fun at how ridiculous the situation was. I ate PB&J and blueberry muffins and to self medicate the pain of wasting an entire day monitoring a pittance of an estate...we had some softserv.
Sunday DH made french toast, I cant complain, it was fabulous.
We traveled to Quechee, VT to meet a friend for lunch. It was so-so, DH thought it was great, but he is easily impressed and thinks I over analyze the food, I am too critical. Its just a different perspective, if I am going to cheat, I feel like it should be-WOW-worth it, plus I am a cheapskate I don't want to waste $15 when I know I could have made it tastier at home.
After lunch we set out to pick up some radio antenna parts--25' long aluminum tubes that needed to be dissembled in the horsefly infested woods. After 2 hours of that kind of fun we met up with DH's childhood friend and had really awesome totally cheat-worthy Chinese food from the Orient in Hanover, NH. It was a great visit everyone had fun! And we topped the night off with pure Italian gelato from Morano's. If you ever get over this way its mind blowing.
Long drive home. Midnight and up at 5:30. My mind is a bit mushy.
Don't dare step on the scale, but that's how this annual backslide always starts. I feel like I am already 4' down in the pit, but instead of diggin in and clawing my way up, I am just settling into a comfortable creep down to the bottom.
Last night I was thinking about what I need to do for the "5k my way" program. I feel like I need to start over. I wrote about how I didn't do so hot on day two, well I didn't get the time to attempt day three, motherhood got in my way, then it was my job and household BS.
So should I just keep doing week 2 until I can do it or go back to week one so I can build some confidence? I know that I should find someplace flat to run but that just adds more time, as I would have to driver there, and what seems like another obstacle that might prevent me from hitting the road at all.
Next week we are going camping. I am going to plan some healthy meals and am determined that "yumyum yohoo's" will not be a requirement on this trip. Let's see what DH thinks of that!
