I had crazy dreams last night and didn't get much sleep. I kept waking up. My husband IMed me after I had gone to bed as well. I like that he does keep in contact, but still, another distraction.
I set my alarm for 0500 this morning and was set on finishing the P90X video I started. Nope. Got up, shut the alarm off, went back to bed.
Tonight is card night with Mom and Granny. I wish we could find a fourth person to play bridge. It works with three, but takes a little jockeying around.
It is cold and rainy here today. 37F with drizzle. I cannot stand this weather... warm and rain, cold and snow are fine. Cold and rain. Bleh. This is when I need an extra shot of Vitamin D and to go sit under my lamp. I guess working in the basement of my office doesn't help either.
Yesterday, I stood on my front porch in bare feet. Ok, it was a little cold for bare feet, but it was sunny and pretty (and almost 50F)! I really enjoyed my run. It was nice to get out of the house/office and just do it. It also reassured me that my obstacles on the dreadmill are 100% psychological. I need to get over myself and start pounding out good workouts on that thing.
I came to work this morning, but looking at the weather, I think I may want to head back up the hill soon. They are calling for ice this evening at my place. We shall see. My boss is pretty loose on things like that.
So, lets try a list of positives and a list of goals like Debs does (thanks again for the idea!):
-I ran outside (broken record here!)
-I stayed in my WW points target yesterday (had .5 left at the end of the day)
-Tried a subway kids meal with apples and water instead of chips
-Got some chores done around the house, including changing the snowblower off the tractor and put the blade back on and plowed my 1/2 mile long driveway
-Played cards with Mom and Granny for a half hour between WW and running
-Stay on track food wise
-Card night with Mom and Granny!
-Resistance bands when I get home
-Run in the rain (although the weather is reported as "overcast" right now)
-Straighten the house since I'm leaving for husby's either tonight or tomorrow
If I could give you each a gift, here are the things that popped into my head:
-John - a hug
-Apple - a sugar free cola that wasn't yucky
-Chris - a spa day (away from that high stress job of yours!)
-Robin - a 5k with beautiful scenery that we could do together
-All my spark friends - happiness and health in 2011
