Well, I'm sitting here as Erin is sleeping - he worked last night. Our shower is not functioning at this time as we're waiting for the mud to dry. Gosh, I can't wait until the bathroom part of the remodeling process is done!! A shower is something I can not live without. SO, here I am , on the internet, on SP and I've nearly run out of options of things to do....so I thought I'd try blogging. Perhaps this will keep me more motivated? I don't know.
I have revised my page colors...and my goals. I'm shooting for a smaller goal weight of 120# by the end of October. I need to get on this. I was 130.6 this morning and it's just so frustrating! I'm really going to start watching my calorie intake here at home. I do great for breakfast and lunch, but when I get home, it's all over from there. I need to just do it. We've been going out to eat about once per week lately too, which is very much unlike us, but fun to say the least. I need to start making better choices in that area as well. I always think..."Well, since we rarely eat out, I'll treat myself to whichever meal I want tonight." Unfortunately, eating out more often meals more high fat, high carb meals. Urg....I'll stop that now.
I'm running a 5K tomorrow. I haven't ran in about 2 weeks. Yikes! I'm a bit scared. Not that 3.1 miles is anything to be scared of, but my competition with myself is strong and I always have to beat my previous time. Don't think it'll happen tomorrow. It's not that I didn't want to "practice" and run the past few weeks, but I swear I've been super busy after work and on weekends! I KNOW I can fit it in, but I also know I'd be exhausted and very crabby about it, so I didn't. Bad me. I am also signed up for another one next week. I WILL run this week to prepare. I promise myself. I will also keep running from here on out. I would like to take 1st in my age range most of the time next summer...if not al lthe time. I know it's something I can do, but I just haven't put the effort towards preparing myself for that. :) I will do it.
I am going now, to finish SPing, then going for a run. Not sure if one run in two weeks, the day before a 5K will hinder me. I'm assuming it will, but I want to run. Yey me.
