155.6 - Sloth & Surprise



That was me this weekend--a sloth hanging around doing absolutely freaking nothin'.

Friday--no run because our client who said she'd come in to sign papers at 4:00 didn't make it until 4:30, and by then my window to workout was gone.

Saturday--no run because we sat around all day in our PJs and did a whole lot of nada. I got a lot of reading done in my new book (The Other Boleyn Girl), which is a fun read so far. I felt so out of it that I didn't even take a shower. It was the laziest day I've had in ages.

Sunday--no run because after church I had a couple of errands to run with Sophie and by the time I got home around 3 p.m., I was done for the day and back in my PJs

I didn't eat like mad, but I did have half a Q'doba burrito Sunday for lunch with chips and also had plenty of other carby foods the rest of the weekend to account for the weight gain.

So today I weighed in and shrugged my shoulders and thought, damn I guess my body isn't going to stay between 152-154 just because I say it will. Guess it's time to get back to work.

I've eaten my lunch already and I'm planning on running during the day as my lunch hour, because I will be darned if I miss a run again because of work stuff. [Edited to add: I made it to the gym; did 4 miles in 45 minutes. And I made an appointment to see the doctor tomorrow morning about my lungs, because I had the same breathing issues with this run that I did last week.]

The surprise is from DH, who bought me tickets to see my favorite band in concert this summer at Deer Creek in Indianapolis.



It's for my birthday, which isn't for another 2 weeks, and Mark meant for me not to even find out about it until July 25th, the day of the concert. He went out Saturday morning when tickets went on sale and bought them, but the silly boy put them on our debit card and I look at our checking account at least a few times a week. So this morning I see a charge from Ticketmaster and I ask him about it. He's a very bad liar, and I'm very persistent, so he finally just told me what it was for. Truthfully, I'm glad the surprise is spoiled because it's just what I needed today to cheer me up.
