Tuesday night we got our Christmas tree. DD#2's Bball practice ended early, so DH said he would pick her up which allowed me to do my 20 min. ST routine. We all picked up DD#3 from play rehearsal and went straight to Home Depot to get our tree. Our tradition the past 3 or 4 years has been to get the tree and then go to Steak & Shake for dinner (right next to HD). I know, not the best place to go, but I went ahead and splurged and got the burger, fries & milkshake!
I ran right after work on Wednesday. DD#2 had a late Bball game (7:30). The Freshman team is not doing too well. They've lost the first 2 games. 7 out of the 11 girls on the Freshman team played together on their 8th Grade team at Middle School, but they don't have their 6'4" (at 14) player anymore. She's actually on the Varsity team. She was always good for 20+ points a game. She would just stand under the basket and the girls would feed her the ball! They need to come up with a new offensive weapon! The 2 teams that beat them both played Freshman girls that are on their Varsity roster (I'm a website stalker). Makes for a good Freshman team, but doesn't give the other girls as much playing time.
I digress, I did pretty well on the run Wednesday. I ran/walked 7min/ 3 twice and on my 3rd 7 min. run, I ran over 10 mins. I was pretty far from the car, so I had to walk for about 6 more mins. It was about 40+ mins total. I'm going to try to run right after work again today. DD#1 doesn't have to work and DD#2's Bball practice is over @ 5:30, so I have about an hour window! I'm going to go for 10 min. run/3 mins. walk (3 times). If I can do that, I'm going for a mile straight! I'll be back to 5K form in no time!
Speaking of 5K's, one of my end of the year goals is to sign up for 2 5K's to complete by February. I found 2 in my area in February (9th & 23rd). I actually did both of these this year and I really like the routes - the first one is hilly and the second one is on the greenway, so it's flat. I'm going to sign up by next week, so that will be one goal completed! That also give me over 2 months to get ready!
If I run tonight and do my ST tomorrow, I'll have met my goals for the week! DD#2 has a Bball game @ 11 am, so I'm going to do the ST before the game. When we get home, I have to pick up DD#1's boyfriend, watch the SEC championship (go Dawgs) and decorate the tree.
Sunday will be busy too. DD#2 has confirmation class in the morning (and I'm a small group leader), DD#3 is an alter server for 5 pm Mass. That give me about 4 hours in the afternoon and I think I'll just relax (maybe hike somewhere). My beloved 11-1 Falcons beat the New Orleans Saints last night so I don't "have" to watch football (but I probably will)!
Pretty good week. The eating is still not great, but I'm not snacking/overeating at night, so it's all good! We'll see on Wednesday how the scale reacts.
