Day 49 - Mind Over Body ~^..^~
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
It's been about a week since I've blogged and I was starting to kind of feel like a slacker.....it also made me realize how much the blogging keeps me motivated to push harder.....
So let's see, what's been happening on my end of things, hmmm...... Well, I had an awesome weekend with the hubby for starters.....got up at 6am on Saturday to help him set up for the Rose parade and then rode in the back seat while they were in the parade (cat napped for half of that, lol...)...came home and went to the gym to run for an hour, then came back and we went to a BBQ at a friend's house and had a great time visiting and I had fun playing volleyball with the kids, until they starting "making" their own rules, lol!!
Then I helped him in studio Saturday night while he did his show, which was some good bonding time for us even though he was at work - gave me a chance to see what he does every weekend too...
Sunday I got up and went to the gym, came home and then turned around and went to play water polo for an hour and a half with some friends at the Finley Center. Then we packed a healthy lunch and spent the rest of the afternoon playing tourist in San Francisco. The weather was PERFECT and we had such a great time together, it made my day, week, month....well, you get the picture, it was awesome!!
Then we went to the "ChickenFoot" show at the Fillmore in SF that night.....which was also awesome, although I drank quite a bit and was pretty tipsy by the end........
But it was SO worth it!!
I worked out pretty hard over the weekend, even with all the events planned so I ended up taking both Monday and Tuesday off from the gym, which I think I totally needed.........and got back into the swing of things today.
BUT......in cleaning up the house last night for America Idol (TOTAL Idol junkie!) I dropped a 10lb weight on my foot.
Oh yeah, it sucked BIG TIME.
But, I still got up and ran my hour at the gym this morning.....the only thing that got me through was that whole "mind over body" thought process and kind of meditated the pain out of my head.....which makes me believe it can't be broken if I could run it for an hour, right?
Well, that's what I am going with at this point, lol!!
So hopefully my foot will heal up fast, it's pretty black and blue but I'm hoping it will just pass quickly......because I am doing so good and am so tired of the way I used to live, or should I just say the way I used to PRETEND to live.
On to the goals for today:
1. Drink 8 Glasses of Water
2. Avoid drinking soda
3. Stick to packed lunch choices
4. Roll out on foam roller
7. Get in bed by 11pm
