Today was a pretty decent mother's day! Halen made me a pretty rainbow tissue rose, which I want to hang up in my office at work because it's very beige in there - I think the rose will really pop in there.
Airin got me what I asked for - a Garmin Forerunner 405. It's a GPS watch for runs and training. I'm hoping it will help motivate me to keep up with the running, because I believe if I keep running, I will not only become stronger but I will become thinner too.
Here's the watch:
It is really big in person. I tried it out tonight - I only went for a walk because I was so full from dinner - and it's very lightweight. It tracked me via GPS very well. It really is 1.1 miles around my block. I like it a lot, and I hope it helps me to stay on track with my goals.
Because now, as I'm training for this 10K, I'm already thinking "Hey, I bet I could do a half marathon sometime..." whereas before I never considered it.
I did not track my calories till tonight - I ate what I wanted, when I wanted. I didn't do much worse than when I am trying - hahahha... We made dinner here instead of going to a restaurant, and we made bruschetta, shrimp in butter and garlic, and gnocchi in a blush sauce. For dessert, we had cake and ice cream. Oh, and I started drinking at about 9am - Airin put kahlua in my chai tea! Really good but really sweet...
So, as Boss likes to remind me "Today was fun. Today is done. Tomorrow is another one!" ~ Dr. Suess.
Happy mother's day to all you bada$$ muthas.
