Haya there! I have no prophetic words this morning, just a lot of little thinks twinkling in this bog ol- head of mine.
*Sopapilla bars are dangerous. I hosted a Bake-Off/Bake Sale at work for the American Heart Association. One of the entries was Sinful Sopapilla Bars. I tried to stay away. I tasted one. I bought two more. THEY WERE AMAZING. They also contained cream cheese and some other sort of ooey gooey goodness which I think was butter and cinnamon. My little bars and the sliver of German Chocolate Cake I ate (it was a sliver) set me back almost 700 calories!!!! THankfully I only had a protein shake for breakfast, had a light lunch and a light dinner. Went for a 3 mile run after work and ended up with a big calorie deficit.
*Did my first outdoor run of the year. It wasn't too bad considering it was 45 degrees and I haven't run in a while. Managed to run 75% of it, probably closer to 80%. Had to skip the big hills and walk up those bad boys. Took me 50 minutes to do a little over 3 miles. My 5k time is 36-37 minutes so this was definitely a liesurely run and those hills set me back a bit but it was a good workout.
*I am nervous about getting on the scale tomorrow. I haven't been as tight with my nutrition and exercise as I have intended. At the start of the year I had a goal of 214 by 02/14. I am highly doubtful I am there. I am probably still at 218 from a week and a half ago. But I will get on the dang thing anyway. My ultimate goal is to lose 7 lbs in February. I am down 2 and need 5 more.
*I have a big emotional decision to make. My daughter passing will be 3 years on May 29th. Every year The March of Dimes does a huge walk and my family walked every year until her passing and immediately after her passing we raised money. The past 2 years I have been an emotional wreck and couldn't do it. I really feel like I owe it to Alicia to walk and raise money and awareness for her but am afraid that I will have an emotional setback after the walk. However, I also think it could be an wmotional break thru for me as well. I am flirting with the idea and ultimately I want to do what is best for my baby and kiddos like her.
Well I have to run to the dentist. Getting Invisalign. Talk to you later.
