Saturday, I ran my first 5K in four months. There were several challenges but I felt strong and finished with a time a couple minutes longer than last year which made me happy.
After the race, I had a nice lunch with my family which included uncles who were visiting from out of town. I took the dog for a walk and got laundry done. It was a good day.
Then Sunday came. I took lazy and brooding to a whole new level. I barely moved. DH took our yellow lab to the groomer so I did not take her for a walk. She would have turnd into a half black lab with the melted snow and I had zero energy for that clean up!
I did make it to a friend's house for a little while but made up an excuse why I had to leave after a couple hours. I promptly returned to my couch by 3:30pm and started falling asleep. I said 'this cannot stand', got up and went to the store for a couple things I needed. I walked a couple laps around the store and decided 'that's enough.' I prompty returned to the couch where I kept eating and dozing off.
About 9:00, I deciced to take the advice I have given to other Spark members, I had to end the day positive. I had two tangerines, a glass of water, did 10 pushups and a few minutes of stretching.
I woke up this morning feeling hung over. How sad is that to wake up on St. Patrick's day morning feeling like I have a hangover from too much sleeping?!
I told myself this morning to get it in gear, put the brooding away and get going. So I've got healthy meals planned including a few greens to celebrate the holiday. Three hours into my day and I already have more steps than I had all day yesterday. I'm about to take my first walking break of the day and I have yoga tonight.
I hope everyone is having a positive day.
May you always walk in sunshine. May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door. ~Irish blessing
