156.6 - Rain rain go away

It's been rainy and cloudy and a low pressure system has been hanging over us the past two days, and I am so out of it. I've had a nagging off-and-on headache since yesterday morning, and just feel plain icky.

Last night instead of going to the store to buy groceries--is there anything worse than dragging two kids into a store in the rain, then lugging out and unloading groceries with two kids in the rain?--I went home and ordered Pizza Hut pizza and pasta.

And promptly went from 154.8 on Wednesday to 156.6 today. Good gravy, that's a lot of weight in one day.

I got in a run on Tuesday, a 3 miler around our neighborhood, and it was really nice. I ran my 2nd fastest mile ever (9:33) in mile 1, then finished up the 3 miles in 31 minutes. I'm feeling so cruddy today that I know I need to run, but don't wanna.

I've still got a ton of work to do before I leave for the day. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have time for a bit more yammering.

I am so glad that Dreadlock Boy got voted off last night. Bless his heart, he's cute as a button but how the heck he made it into the top 4 is beyond me. I have a feeling that David A. is going to win, because he appeals to so many people. But IMO, David C. is so far beyond any of the contestants, he should be a shoo in. My hope is he'll get a record contract regardless of whether he's 1st or 2nd.

It's been rainy here, too. And my weight went up overnight even though yesterday was about as pristine as I ever get. I'm going to ignore it. I hate lugging groceries in. I like shopping for them, but carrying them in, especially if I do it right after work, is a pain...even without the rain.

I know what you mean. I don't even like grocery shopping by myself when it's raining, so I can only imagine doing it with the kids.

Nice job on the run, especially since you were feeling lousy. I feel your pain lugging the kiddos to the grocery store.....any store for that matter. I would rather stick hot daggars in my eyes than take the 3 of them out. LOL

You know, the second place finishers often do better than the winners on AI. So even if DC doesn't win, I have a feeling he's going to be a huge hit anyway. And plus he's just so darn dreamy (in a bad boy kinda way!)

Sorry you're feeling yucky - must be something in the air. I've been coughing for two days, and I"m so over it already!!!

Hope you feel better! ((hugs))

Phooey to the rain. And so what - you ordered pizza - instead of opting to go grocery shopping with two children in the pouring down rain.

I think you did just fine. If you went into the grocery store feeling tired and run down with a headache and the gloomy rain, you might have been tempted to stock up on comfort foods.

Hope your weather is clearing up and you have time to get a run in.
