I've decided I'm sick of the titles being all just Blog streak whatever, but I skipped too many days so I definitely need to re-start now.
So anyway, so much fun with my family. My IT band isn't better, but it isn't any worse, and I ran a LR with my sister (10+) Saturday, 7 miles on Sunday, and 3 miles this morning. So I'm gonna keep working on it, 11 miles tomorrow, 5 miles Wednesday, and then I get a rest day (or maybe two) before my half marathon Saturday. Hopefully that will help me get over the hump with it.
Food has been kinda all over the place - it's tough with people in town, especially really indecisive people. I tried to get us to make a plan in advance but no one really responded to me and when we were here it wasn't any better, so I just had to kinda go with the flow. At least I've been running a lot! :)
So the family is all going to Maine today, staying overnight with someone there, and then coming back tomorrow. They're trying to visit as many Northeastern family connections as possible in this trip. I couldn't make it because there is no room in their vehicle and DH can't get off work and I wasn't going to strand him without a car, so hence the break. They might not have been coming back only my sister didn't drive the whole trip with them, she flew into Connecticut but she'll be flying OUT of VERMONT, so they have to come back. I'm glad because I kinda thought this trip was mostly about seeing me, and using me as an excuse to be able to visit other people, but if they didn't come back it'd almost be more like I was the excuse to visit other people period, and not really visiting me very much at all. :( I thought they'd do Maine before or after Vermont and not right in the middle. But oh well.
We had a lot of good time together already and we'll have some more before they leave.
This morning we went to the chocolate factory....
I had a Snickers Marathon Bar "Smart Stuff" bar this morning, then chocolate samples. hahah. So nutritionally kinda questionable, but not calorie heavy for me for a breakfast. I'm excited to kinda eat "normal" for today and tomorrow - we'll go out for dinner Tuesday evening when they get back, but at a place that is pretty easy to eat kinda healthy I think.
Well... I feel caught up here now. :)
