Didn't crawl out for morning exercise, but...

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Well it came down to the ability to sleep a little more or to haul butt out of bed this morning... I even went to bed early, slept in shorts & top, etc to make the latter more likely... but I think I really needed that extra sleep last night. My FitBit says I slept nearly 8.5 hours, which is about an hour more than I normally do. I also have an 80+ minute TM workout scheduled for tonight.

I also feel super-energized today.

I also had to quick scrabble a lunch together on my way out the door... and what a happy thing that was. I grabbed a small potato, a pat of butter, some light sour cream, a tomato, a green pepper and some cheese sticks... along with fruit and carrots. So I had a baked potato, with a salad (already have lettuce & dressing here at work) for lunch:

Also had good news on the scale this morning, I was down to 152.4. I guess the extra pound was most likely water weight, but that doesn't make it any more welcome. I stayed well in calories yesterday and will be there today too. I have already blown away my fruit and veggies for today, so my carrots and oranges for snacks are already just gravy! (TASTY gravy).

I have been watching the weather forecast nervously for the 25th of May, the Go Girl Run. Temp forecasts have been anywhere from 64-78 with a constant chance of wet. Today we are at 68. That's not bad, but with my track record for cold runs this year, I am expecting a sudden blast from the Arctic bringing northerly winds and a high of 30 plus a blizzard... hopefully by saying it, it will ward off such evile.

Hope everyone is out enjoying the sunshine we have waited so long for!

    emoticon Just remember that correlation is not causation! Therefore one might further note that you are not the bringer of bad weather (or cold weather). Chin up babydoll. You are going to have good weather this time - the odds are in your favor! LOL. Have a great week!
