So yesterday- I did meet the run club and did the group run. I ran with this super fast girl who was doing one of her easier runs- this meant she could easily run with me. We had 8 miles as our goal. I started out with her and 2 guys- the guys quickly pulled away- about 2 miles in. We were holding 8:30-9 pace. I was in a lot of pain- caused me to really be cautious and slow. I felt bad- if I was holding her back... She said no- the pace was perfect. Really felt it on the inclines we had. I made it through 8 miles 1:10/8:44 pace. Not bad- not good. I did it- that is what matters. After the run I did grocery shopping, then came home to find NO KIDS. My husband said his brother took both to go to Chucky Cheese for the day. So-= I unloaded the groceries in peace, took a bath, then hubs came up and said did I want to head down to the Country Club for a drink and to watch the tourney going on. He was supposed to be in it but due to his broken leg.... So we did. We had a couple of drinks, then later the kids and my bil met us there. We made a plan- for them to spend the night at his place with his daughter (their cousin) and also my hubs and I were doing dinner with my FIL. AWESOME. I went home and packed their overnight bags, made a reservation at Longhorn Steakhouse for the 3 of us. We had a great dinner- they had a lo-cal margarita, they have a 500 calorie menu offering- I got their 6 oz steak, a salad with balsamic on the side, and then green beans. Ate ALL of it but probably the total meal was 800 calories- including the drink. I feel I may be up in pounds - based on how clothes feel. We took the kids clothes to my BIL house after - said good night to them... Nice alone night for us. I slept until 8am! WOWEE! Today - ate a nice Kelloggs Cereal breakfast with fruit and almond milk. Then kids came back 10am. Took Ava to get her hair cut - along with me at a fundraiser for the softball leauge. She got her hair cut and styled, I got - partial foil, color, cut, and eyebrows waxed. WOW. Hey=- the proceeds went to the league- that Ava is a part of. THEN=- how sweet- my SIL took Ava from the salon to the zoo for the day. They are still not back. Son went with hubs to a birthday party 12-2. After my hair did errands, came home at lunch. Now- we are meeting my son's friends at the park to practice baseball- they all play in the farm league. (they are all 6- w brothers and my son) There is my stint for exercise today. Need to rest the ailing hammy. Had a great salad with some deli meat on top and I had a cup of wonton soup. MMM. Lots of sodium but ate sensibly. Ok that is it. Hope all are well.
