I'm a bit better today, and thank you all for your well wishes. That post *was* from Monday--I had set up the links last Friday and just edited that post, and forgot to change the posting date... in case anyone noticed that the date yesterday said "Friday."
I did the best thing I could for myself yesterday afternoon--I went out for a run. I'd planned on 4 miles, but ran out of gas after about 2 miles and just headed back to finish with around 3. I'd skipped lunch--had zero appetite yesterday--and my body needed more energy, I suppose, if it was gonna do 4.
Anywho, at least I got out there and I did feel better during and after. I had a McD's salad while Sophie had swim lessons at 5:00, and then went home, let the kids play a bit, got them in bed and then read a book (Swapping Lives by Jane Green--not great, but I hate not finishing a book I've started...it's a quick & easy read). I was asleep by 9:30, but back awake at 1 a.m. when Luke woke up. Got him settled down and then I couldn't sleep. So, I had some chocolate. Not a great choice, but given the circumstances, I'll take a 250 calorie night time eating event over a pint of Ben & Jerry's, which is what I really felt like eating.
So I'm tired today, and it's probably still the PMS making me feel blah. It will be over soon, and I have my weekend away with my girlfriend in Arkansas to look forward to this Friday. I am counting down the minutes.
Planning on a run today, and I'm toying with doing 5 miles. If I can get out of the office with enough time, I'm gonna try it. It will be my first time to run 5. Keep sending me those positive vibes, and I know I can do it.
OH! I almost forgot-- yesterday at LA weigh in, I hit 155. It's official, only 10 pounds to go. I'll post a progress pic soon.
