Well, I am back home after being gone almost a week! We went to my daughter's house in Emporia to do some work on the place. She has been living there for the past few years but it is now time for her to move closer to home (like in with me! lol!) We bought the house for her to live in while she attended college but she is now attending on-line classes only so the house isn't necessary any more. We put in some new light fixtures and ceiling fans and did a few minor repairs in order to get it put on the market. Of course the day after we listed it, the snow started falling and there was several inches on the ground - along with ice. YUCK! We actually got "stuck" in Emporia for an extra day because of the weather and the road conditions. It was fun though 'cause all my grandbabies were there (my other daughter & her kids had come with us).
I had packed my running clothes and shoes, etc. and had every intention of running at least once or twice while we were there. Well, that didn't happen. The day before it started storming I had the WORST headache that I have had in a long, long time. I sometimes get those "barometer headaches" before it rains. Don't think I have ever had one before a snow though. It was weird and SO painful. So, that day was out for running for sure. Too bad though 'cause it was a beautiful and fairly warm day. Of course, after that, there was several inches of ice and snow on the ground so running was a no-no.
Besides not getting any exercise the entire time I was gone (except for housework stuff) I also didn't eat too well. I didn't track anything and pretty much ate whatever I wanted. I now feel horrible, fat and yucky! I did gain a couple of pounds and I feel swollen and bloated. Why do I do that to myself? I am finding more and more that I really have a hard time when I am away from home. That is why I really balk when I have to go somewhere for any period of time. Home is safe and home is where I can stay on track! Gonna have to figure out how to deal with that one of these days or I am going to end up being a complete hermit!
The good news is that I am now back home. I'm tracking my food again and know that I will now be able to eat properly and also get my exercise back on track. Can't wait to get my shoes on and run today! It is already in the 60's temperature-wise! Hurray for spring! No traces of snow left, thank goodness!!!
It's good to be home. :)

Well, maybe not total rest. I didn't run today anyway. It's been a pretty good day. Very quiet around here without my little granddaughter toddling around!
I did do about 45 minutes of working out this afternoon and now my legs are a bit sore. Hope they don't stay that way. I progress to running 12 minutes on my C25K tomorrow. No problem though... I tested myself on Friday and ran as long as I could on my final interval, which turned out to be 13 minutes. Yay for me. Guess I should be able to do the 12 minute intervals tomorrow and the rest of the week.
Sure hope the sun comes out tomorrow. I am so sick of the gray days and chilly weather. I need some natural Vitamin D synthesis! I'm looking forward to running in the morning and then coming home to clean all the little fingerprints and handprints off all the glass! So cute! Hate cleaning windows and glass but I had better have a clean slate for her the next time the toddler comes to visit. LOL!
Peace to you all and remember to count your blessings.

Today is sort of a blah kind of day. The sky is cloudy and it is sort of cold. My daughter and grandbaby, who have been here for almost 3 weeks, left this morning. My husband is being an insensitive jerk and I don't like it.
We were supposed to go to a wedding together this evening - sort of a date night. We haven't had one of those for quite some time. I got dressed, did my hair, put on make-up, packed my bag and got all ready to drive to his place to go on our date. I just had a sneaking feeling that I had better confirm before I drove 90 miles so I called him. Just as I suspected... he didn't care one way or the other whether we went or not. What an ass! He has been working on taxes all day and was headed to the accountant's office so I suppose that is what put him in a "mood." He really hurt my feelings. We hardly ever fight or have problems so this minor little thing in most marriages is feeling pretty awful in mine right now. I am sure that he has no clue that he hurt me but I will have to wait until I am over it a little more before I can tell him.
Oh well... tomorrow is a new day. There will be exercise to do and perhaps the sun will shine. Forever onward!
