Day 171 - Got My Groove Back!

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Today was such a perfect day to go for a jog. It was on the cool side but perfect with my jogging jacket. I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to jog like yesterday. Yesterday, even though I mostly walked 5 miles, I was exhausted!!! I took my shower and went to bed for hours and just rested. It was a much needed rest! emoticon

Today I feel much better and I was able to jog almost non-stop for 2.5 miles! Yay!!! After that I just slowed down to half jog and half walk. I got my 5 miles in!!! emoticon

I also lost another 1/2 pound! Probably because I just wasn't in the mood to eat yesterday due to just being so exhausted! By dinner time, my appetite returned and I made tacos. I had 3 small tacos. Yum! emoticon

My daughter moves home today. I am not sure if this is a good thing...she is bringing her two cats. She is that perfect size of 3 and she has tons of clothes! No clue where she is going to put them all... She is also the type of girly girl that showers until the hot water is gone and it takes her about 2 hours to do her hair and makeup. When she did live at home several years ago, she lived in the basement and did not disturb us. But since then, my oldest son took over her old bedroom when he moved back home last November after he did his 4 years of service in the Marines. He is in college full time now. So proud of him!!!!! emoticon

Boy I tell ya', you get the kids moved out of the house and they eventually move back home...sigh...however, my daughter is only staying until mid December. She will then move to Florida to finish up her internship as a doctor in physical therapy. So proud of her!!!!! emoticon
