Yay Happy Monday!! Wow was I tired this morning- it was so damn hard to get myself up, and I felt lightheaded until I got some coffee in me!
What a crazy weekend for me! It wasn't all bad, but could have been better for my eating/drinking.
Friday night I finally got to spend some quality time with my Best friend Katie- we've been distant it seems since we went to vegas a month ago. Plus were both busy with work and family, still though it was great to see her. She came of to my apartment which was nice- not a lot of people come over! I love sharing my life and home with people! Sometimes its too much if a secluded sanctuary for just me, josh and the kitties! I ate healthy all week, Friday as well! We went to see Silver Linings Playbook (phenomenal!) and then hung out after watching E! and baby videos on youtube lol.
Saturday morning I woke up feeling good- not super pumped about my run outside, but I got myself there. I had to run 3 miles once this weekend and since ALL of our snow melted because it was warm on Friday I decided to head outside. WELL it was still only low 40s and VERY windy. 1 minute after starting to run I was like "no way can I run 3 miles like this!" but somehow- like I always do- I pushed through and ran 3.1 miles in 35 minutes. I impressed myself! I just realized I wasnt even sore on Sunday.
After my run Josh and I went grocery shopping before heading our seperate ways for the Packer game. He headed to one of his buddie's houses for a party, and I headed downtown to go out with a friend. And unfortunately my health concerns went out the window that night. I had wings, fries and mac and cheese bites. Also i drank about 10 beers, 3 shots and a malibu drink with 5 varieties mixed together. I was drunk, friends, D-R-U-N-K. And with that came the drunk taco bell run before my friend brought me home. I seriously went overboard. Like $17 worth of food (to split with my friend) overboard.
It was a sad picture to have Josh come home unexpectedly and find me with taco bell sprawled all over the bed, reaking like cigarettes and trying to watch gossip girl on my ipad. But he forgave me, even offered to sleep in the living room so I could have the bed to myself. But I knew he was only joking about that part. ;)
Needless to say I became conscious around 12:30 p.m. Sunday morning, went and puked and was just a pile of junk all day. I had half a bagel w/ cr cheese and a piece of string cheese until later that day. My bestie had a Golden Globe party last night, our friends brought Little Cesars pizza, I finished the wings I left in my car Saturday night, and had a few cookies. However I don't think I was too over last night with my WW points, at least not too much.
Today is a big day, guys! I start the 18 week Half-Marathon training schedule today! For the past 2 weeks i've been following the first week's schedule, so I feel confident I have prepared myself enough to keep up with it! I have marked down the days I will need to work around for vacations and events so I am good with that! I MAY miss one day of running when I go to NYC with mom and sister. But ALSO, how cool would it be to say I jogged in Central Park?! We're only 5 blocks from it, so I just might.
I know this is going to be a really tough adventure I'm starting here. But I need something to keep me busy. I'm feeling a little low lately, because I feel kind of bored with my life right now. I don't mean that to reflect negatively on anyone in my life at all! Or my job. I just feel like I need something more right now. Something to help me focus on me, and to better myself. I feel disconnected from who I am lately, so I may try yoga or meditation to really come back to myself and really understand my feelings, emotions, needs etc...
On another note- I am seriously impressed with how well Weight Watchers has been working for me again. It's SO easy to just follow points and not cheat. Even though I have gone over too many times so far, but I feel more of a solidity with this system than with counting calories. It's stress-less too.x
Well here's to having a wonderful week- I hope everyone stays on track! Hopefully surpass your fitness goals and really kick some butt!
