So, I'm still doing my Couch to 5K workouts ... after tomorrow morning, I'll have one more week till I "earn" my new running shoes!!
Someone asked me what 5K I was training for, and I was thinking "The 5K I'll run several times each week, duh!" but I've read and heard a lot lately about how much people enjoy running races and how motivating it is.
Well, I think I found a 5K that will be fun to run! I may even be able to get my brother and dad to do it with me! It is a long ways off, a year from when I'll finish C25K ... but it sounds AWESOME!
Yesterday I got "Love Bombed" on my regular blog. I had written about my miscarriage, and someone nominated me to this organization (that I'm now part of too) who "bombs" someone's blog/etc with loving messages each Thursday.
What great timing! I attended the first baby shower since the miscarriage today, and being flooded with kindness from people who read my story yesterday made me feel bolstered and ready. Such a very "Sparking" website! One of my dear coworkers checked on me afterwards too - that meant the world to me.
We're doing ok with the one car thing. Today was the tough day ... hubby got home with the car at 7:30am ... I got to work at 8:15 ... normally with a 1 hour lunch I'd leave at 5:15 ... but hubby need to leave again for his job at 5:15, so I needed to GET HOME at 5:15. So I took a short lunch.
OH! And I didn't even WANT to gluttonously ravage the offerings at the shower. I indulged in a few chips and some guac, lots of raw veggies, and a bite of banana pudding rather than letting the person closest to the bowl ladle out about a pound like he was for everyone else. Booyah! I did indulge in a donut this morning ... but I had planned for that. I think the Spark is catching on in me!!!
