A sparkfriend recently had a blog about sparkmembers who have been inactive and have not posted or commented in a long time. I did a few deletes and believe me, I had to look carefully and think about who to remove. Some didn't even add me and so that was easy, others just haven't posted since April of last year. I don't like doing that, but if you don't have the support from them, it just doesn't make sense to keep them. I love seeing good and bad news, but I try to be upbeat for everyone. The sparkfriends I have right now, I am comfortable to say almost anything. I will be reaching an anniversary, my first year here. Goes by fast!

I knew I was in trouble when I took in my daughter's corned beef sandwich that she didn't like and I hated it going to waste. I know that was such a "mommy" thing to do. About a half hour ago, I just got settled in and the top of my head started feeling numb and then I got dizzy. It's a good thing I was sitting. I don't know if it's fatigue or eating too much salt. I gotta get back to my workout tomorrow. I know that I said that I rather go on the trail but I am on my 3rd day of my 5k and the only way I can track my timing and distance is the treadmill. When my husband took his garmin to the trail a week ago, he discovered that the markers were off. I don't like to be cheated or feel like cheating if it's not exact. I haven't weighed myself in almost two weeks because I had planned to weigh myself at the end of the month now instead of going on every week. I am just hoping that I didn't gain at all after this.

Sunday was date night, Monday was a yucky day and yesterday should have been my going back to exercise day but didn't. Today, I finally got out on the trail. It was such a lovely day, I just couldn't stay home and do nothing. I usually go to the gym, but I wanted to try to do my 5k program on solid ground. The treadmill is ok, but nothing feels better than your feet hitting some dirt and pine needles. I did ok, I noticed how much farther I can jog now than five months ago. St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow and I got corned beef and cabbage to stick in the crock pot. The house smells great once it starts to simmer for a few hours. Even though I have not one drop of Irish in me, I gotta have some corned beef. Tonight, I watched our high school winter guard and it wasn't what I was expecting. They were great with the flags, but I guess I like watching the marching band more. It's not easy to enjoy it though when I developed major sinus pain.

So, two nights ago, I asked my darling hubby if we can have a date night, but it had to be informal he says. I was hoping we can make up for our formal Valentine date we didn't do yet. I agreed to it and of course all I could think of was what to wear. Last night, after taking my #2 son to get a haircut that is so needed, he is starting a new first job, I went to Fashion Bug to find a blouse to wear for tonight. I almost ended up with a blouse that had silver lines vertically, looked nice, but not really a date night material. After being there for almost half hour, and was reminded that it's almost 8 and we haven't had dinner, I stopped looking and by the last seconds, found one. It was half price and so I got it for 7.45. Well, last night, I was getting my outfit together and found my leggings to wear with it. The weird thing is that while looking for the leggings, I found more blouses that I forgot I even have. So, we can have more date nights and I have others to wear. Now, I just need darling hubby to get new shirts too. While dear hubby is going out for his run, I will be playing dress up and get ready. Maybe while we are out, I can get a picture of us. We haven't had one taken since our Vegas break.

Today I went to the gym with every intention of doing my second day of my 5k and well, I'm not happy. I shouldn't make any reason for my lack luster workout, but TOM came along with me. So for the first two intervals, I did fine, but when I got to the third through last interval, I was getting sluggy. I didn't give up, but my speed decreased a bit. I finished at 1.6 miles in 30 minutes. Kinda weird, my timing somehow is faster than yesterday. Yesterday was at 1.8 miles. I don't know if I can go tomorrow to the gym, my son is marching at the St. Patrick's Day parade.
