.... so YAY FAMILY'S HERE! :D
I intended to eat something when I got home, but then I called them and they were going to be here in like an hour and I asked if they'd be ready to eat dinner then, and the answer was yes, so I waited. This resulted in a difference of at least 4 hrs between meals which I'm trying to work on eating every 2-3 hours.
But we went out to eat to the greek place and I made a pretty wise meal choice I think -- lamb souvlaki w/ a greek salad. :) I did have a couple small pieces of their garlic bread, but my meal was essentially grilled meat and veggies w/ olive oil! WOOT! So ok, that wasn't too much, but it was filling and delicious. :)
Then it was a marathon Rock Band Session until my mom and dad were super tired pretty much it was almost 11PM their time, so they went back to their hotel. (I guess all the better for them to sleep in today while I'm at work! HAHA)
But then we got hungry again -- it was about the time I usually eat dinner and it had been a good 5 hours since eating last???
Then the poor eating choices happened -- a frozen chimichanga, an ice cream cone, and 2 dove dark chocolates. Calorically -- it was not too bad. According to my estimates for eating out plus this -- I came in at my MIN on calories. But the content??? HAHAHAH. I was over on fat and under on carbs and protein. :P doh.
THEN MORE GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
So I was looking at the weather and it's supposed to rain pretty much all weekend -- I was like OH NO when am I going to run!!! And it doesn't bode well for a family outing to the park. So anyway, I thought, maybe I can run before work today. I looked at the weather -- supposed to be raining.
Well -- at first I just thought. Can't do it! And decided to just wake up at my normal Saturday work time...but then I decided I could at least get up and see if it was raining.
WELL IT WASN'T! :D And I got in a GREAT run! The weather was pleasantly cool with no bright sun due to the hour (I ran about 15min after sunrise). I saw a couple of runners out, one with her two adorable dogs. :) It was just very nice. And I got in the mileage I was hoping for PLUS a bit. So I am feeling VERY happy with that today.
I'm just going to accept that my food schedule is going to be weird this weekend due to planning food outings w/ my family and if I try to eat more in between it's just going to make things suck for them and me eat too much overall I think. I'll just get back on track with food come Monday.
SO! SOMETHING I MEANT TO BLOG ABOUT THE OTHER DAY:
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE IS BACK!!!!!!!! I love music, I LOVE dancing... I love this show. But you know what else I love about it??? The amazing bodies the dancers have. So muscular and powerful and beautiful! :D Ok so at this point it's still the auditions, and some of the bodies are not the pinnacle of form and function and admiration I'm talking about -- but those really amazing dancers??? They just blow me away not JUST with their dancing. If I could have a body like a dancer I would be totally thrilled. :)
So many different types of beautiful healthy strong bodies -- like I was blogging about the other day with the athletes!! And you know what, a gymnast's body is amazing and beautiful in it's own way as well. LOVE sprinter's bodies. Have to say, the Long Distance Runner's bodies freak me out. The Pole Vaulters usually look pretty awesome. Love those swimmers! hahaha :D There's the long and lean, the thick and muscular, the in between softly defined muscles, the woman on the street with the killer curves, the ballroom dancers with the killer calve muscles from dancing in those heels, the PEOPLE I SAW TODAY RUNNING and enjoying the fit healthy movement of their bodies!!! There was an older gentleman and then the woman with her dogs. SO CUTE! :)
I truly believe that a healthy body is a beautiful body -- no matter the size or shape. Someone who is healthy and fit has a glow from within. And health and fitness DOES NOT LOOK THE SAME in everyone!!! It may not even look the same for the same person at different times in their life.
Those of you who aren't at your goal yet, but are striving for health -- you have that glow in you, too. :) The healthy lifestyle habits give you that beauty -- from the good foods you use to feed yourself, to the paces you put yourself through when working out.
And now I'm kinda rambling.
Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!!!!
