This past week was a crazy week. After running 7 miles the previous Sunday, the following week sucked as far as getting any kind of running or other exercise in. Then my husband and I left for Ohio (an 8-hour drive) to attend his niece's wedding reception this past weekend. We left on Friday afternoon, drove part-way, stayed overnight at a hotel, and then drove the rest of the way early Saturday. I actually got up Saturday morning, put on my running clothes which I packed, and used the hotel exercise room and ran on the treadmill for two miles! I would have liked to have run longer, but we were in a hurry to get back on the road, so I figured that two miles would be better than none! Then I took advantage of the hotel's free breakfast and had some lovely oatmeal and fresh fruit. My weekend was off to a healthy start!
It just went downhill from there. Lots of beer at the reception, in addition to wedding cake. We went to bed late, had to get up early yesterday to hit the road to come back home. We stopped somewhere for breakfast and I had a vegetarian scramble with vegetables, but also eggs and cheese. Then I snacked in the car, mainly because I was bored I think. Then when we got home we were too tired to cook, so we went out for Mexican food. More cheese. Blech. This morning I woke up feeling like crap. I'm tired. My body feels abused. I was actually excited to pack my lunch filled with veggies and fruit. I could feel my body celebrating - YAY! We're back to our normal, healthy routine! I've been drinking lots of water this morning, and looking forward to my run after work this afternoon. It will probably be rough, but that's okay. I just need to sweat out the junk and breath in the good!
