License Revoked

Yep, it was a crazy week. Sophie's birthday was yesterday, & we had her party on Saturday. It was at our town's children's museum & I didn't have to do a whole lot, but there was enough extra that it kept me away from my computer at night & all weekend. Plus, I just enjoyed having some "off the grid" time with the family for several days. It was nice.

But it was also not good for the scale. I gave myself a license to eat all weekend. & man am I paying for it. A 4 pound gain (which, I know, will come off quickly b/c it's mostly water weight--I can feel it in my fingers). And I haven't run since Friday. I didn't meet my 20 mile goal last week, which bums me out but I'm over it. Today starts another day to get back on the wagon. My license to eat has been revoked.

Today is busy at work, but I hope I get a chance to pop in & check on how you all are doing.

I already feel the summer-time relaxation mojo pulling me to it. I am a mere 2 1/2 weeks from vacation in St John--yes, Helen, I can't wait!

Running planned for this afternoon, probably indoors because it's rainy & muggy. But that's OK. I had a killer run on Friday on the treadmill at the gym. I think we are friends again.

OK, so you weren't perfect. As much we all love you, we know nobody's perfect. *hugs* You're setting up a time this afternoon and you have a good attitude about the weight gain. You know it can go away with a little trimming and running. And that kind of attitude is really important -- you could blow it off or think it's the end of the world. You're just being sensible. :-)

I hope the time goes quickly so you can be on your vacation soon!

youre right - it will come off quickly. some weeks are just like that and while its hard to see, the pounds will come off.

Thats kinda my gauge and I didnt even realize it until I read your post.
Totally the way I know if its jerky or (shhh) poptart gains.

hope you had a good run.
