I'm not walking, but waking on sunshine. As in, the sun was actually UP when I work up this morning. What a wonderful feeling.
You see, I ditched my running group and the planned 20 miles this Sunday. It's not what you think...I ran with my girls on SATURDAY, a slightly less taxing 14 miles. Well, 14.20. I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed by our schedule, so I decided to step back a bit. Not that 14 miles is anything to sneeze at. (why do people say that? I can't sneeze on command anyway) A "cool front" came in the night before with some rain and it actually wasn't unbearable outside. Gives me hope that Fall will arrive some day. Oh, I so enjoyed catching up and really enjoying my long run. I'll be back with my group next Sunday for 16 miles. But this run with my girls was a much needed boost for my running spirit. I'm so blessed to have such great running girls! (plus I can always count on bagels afterwards, who doesn't love that?!?!)
Continuing my awesome weekend, I finally found a churro last night at the grocery store. I guess because it is the Hatch Green Chile Festival, they upped the selection of Mexican treats. Mmm, churro-ey.
Sadly, it really wasn't very good and I only ate about 2 bites of one churro. Boo! I think churros are probably best served hot and fresh, not packaged. Oh well. It was all in the hunt.
Today I almost didn't know what to do with all my free time. But somehow I managed! I slept past 4 something, fixed a good breakfast for me and Hubs, cleaned house, tackled some yardwork...got some sun, took a walk. All in all a great weekend!
On Jennifer's suggestion, I downloaded a new (FREE) app for my iPhone. Lose it. You can track your activity and food, put in your goal (lose, gain, maintain) and keep up with your progress. We'll see how this works - might be a lot easier than keeping a paper or Excel log. There is NO excuse for me not losing weight as hard as I'm training. No excuse. These cupcake sojourns have got to stop!
Now I'm off to enjoy ABDC. I'm a Massive Monkey's fan. Who do YOU like?
