I tried something new today...ALEVE! That stuff is amazing :) I hope that with it I will be able to get my run done easily tomorrow. I took today completely off from exercise. I felt that was the right choice for me. Work has been really hectic and I am nervous about my schedule changing quickly. I do hope to run more outside though to get ready for a real 5K. There is a park near my work that has a paved track on it. The distance is approx .67 miles for a lap. I figure I need to do about 5 - 6 laps and that is doable!
Tonight I made shrimp scampi over rice with asparagus! It was SO delicious. I will definitely make that again. I miss homegrown asparagus though :( but make do with what is available out here. Last night was leftovers and tomorrow night will probably be leftovers for Zac. I will head down to the bar for a couple of beers. Love my social hour :) But I don't plan on staying out all night. I have a busy weekend.
I plan on helping my friend this weekend. She just bought her first place and it needs a coat of paint everywhere. I seem to love to paint, so I am helping her get it ready this weekend. We have a pattern we are doing in her bedroom on one wall and I can't wait to try it. I meant to try it here first, but just never got around to it. I hope by being busy this weekend I do better at tracking what I eat. I plan on taking good for me food! That seems to really help a lot when I am on the go.
Well I must go and work on John's taxes for a short bit. I keep putting this off and that is not going to get them done! One last thing though. I had my weigh in yesterday and I was pretty sure I knew I had struggled all week and I was right...I gained only one pound though :) I did watch everything I had for the 3 days leading up to the weigh in and I think that really helped. I have also been doing great since then...not perfect, but much better. I am trying to be a lot better and writing it all down. I WANT TO SUCCEED and I can't if I keep sabotaging my hard work. I am completely on track and willing to work hard.
Alright now here I go!
