Last night I was all cranked up to go to the base and get my "twofer" in. Yep, didn't happen. We got to Kingwood and the town Christmas parade was happening and they had no alternative routes marked to get around it. After trying a couple of side streets, we said heck with it, turned around and went to the grocery store.
Oh well, I still ran 4+ miles yesterday.
Its a rainy day today, but its warm. Unless its just absolutely pouring at lunch time, I will get out and run. I can't stand the thought of the dreadmill again. I told myself though, if the weather is really poopy at lunch and I decide to go to the gym after work, I will do the elliptical. I know I will complete an elliptical workout. I'm not sure if I will have the motivation in the evening to complete 3+ miles on the dreadmill. Blahhhh.
I got so much done last night. We went to the grocery store, so I put all the groceries away, folded all the laundry, packed my gym clothes, packed my breakfast and lunch, and prepared dinner for tonight. I am making the SP "Slow cooker pineapple chicken teriyaki". So this morning, I pulled the dish out of the fridge, dropped it in the crockpot, set it to low and I should have yumminess as soon as I walk through the door this evening! I felt very accomplished last night. AND, I still had time to do two crossword puzzles (USA Today and Washington Post), a couple of other word games, shower and enjoy some husby time! Whew, what a night. I was asleep by 10. :)
Have a great Tuesday!

I took a 2 day hiatus from everything to focus my time off on my husband. Saturday and Sunday were the first two days off that we've had together in months. It was wonderful.
I think I ate well, but I didn't exercise... and I didn't track. Clothes still fit and nothing jiggles more than it did before the weekend, so I guess I'm good to go right?? :)
I am in the process of planning the rest of this week. I need to get back into my routine, starting with my gateway to 8k run today at lunch. It was a balmy 17F this morning. I'm really hoping for a warm up before then. The sun is shining so hopefully it will be enough that my joints won't hurt while I'm running.
I am getting yet another head cold. Well, my body acts like I am. I am fighting it with vitamins, lots of water, etc.
Husby and I are planning to hit the pool this evening, but I'm thinking maybe a circuit training session at the gym then hot tub and aim for the pool wednesday night. :)
Have a beautiful Monday. :)

I decided to go on a long and slow run while the turkey was in the oven. Probably the slowest run I've done in months, but it was really nice to enjoy the beauty of where I live.
I put down another 4 miles today. I didn't really mean to go that far, but it was a nice day and I was in the state park so I wasn't worried about being shot.
My house smelled divine with the turkey and stuffing cooking in the oven and the potatoes on the stove... I can't wait to have stuffing! :)
Everyone have a beautiful, blessed day!

T-minus 5.5 hours until vacation officially begins. I so need this.
I have had stomach issues yesterday and today. I am a little apprehensive about running today... I don't know if my guts are up for it. I figure I'll go and I'll do my best. What's the worst that could happen? I guess I find out what the inside of the port-a-potty at the cemetary looks like.
I'm starting to feel better as the morning goes on. I'm still very tired, though. I woke up at 0300 this morning after a very realistic nightmare and couldn't get back to sleep. Needless to say, the bedroom is cleaned and vacuumed, including all the cobwebs and the blinds. Husby texted me this morning when he got home and said (in regards to the bedroom) "Oh my. Looks great. You are the BEST ever. I love you so much" and put the little smiley next to it. Makes it all worth it.
I'm supposed to do gateway to 8k today. I am going to do what I am able. If that is the whole workout, great. If not, I will be thankful for what I can do and not beat myself up over it. Janette, you WILL NOT beat yourself up. Janette, you WILL NOT beat yourself up. I need to remember this on the drive back from the cemetary.
Ok, back to work. Have a great day!
