Weekend Plans and Running

I HAVE THE DAY OFF!!

Can you tell I'm excited?? It's a floating holiday at work! As a contractor..that means no money for me...but I could freaking care less because I'm so excited to be posting from my couch instead of from my desk at work where I stare at a cinder block wall all day...taking breaks only to potentially kill myself with alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, or sulfuric acid.

My plan for the day is as follows:

  • 30 Day Shred
  • weights at the gym
  • finish grocery list
  • shower
  • make Oreo Truffles with the lovely...ready to have her baby ANY DAY NOW Tammie!
  • grocery shopping
  • RELAX!!

I'm so excited to be getting our grocery shopping done today so tomorrow we can totally chill all day!! I'm also going to try to shop for 2 weeks. We never do this...but I thought maybe it would save us some money in the long run and also a trip to the store every other week. I'll let you know how that idea fares :)

I hope y'all have a great weekend and an especially fantastic Easter. I'm blessed with so much and it's such a great time for reflection and admiration for what Jesus did for all of us. Where I would be today without Him, well..I don't even want to know.

Oh...and an update on my running!! I have good runs and bad runs...but I never stop. I've stuck to my training and I have run all the days I am supposed to and for as long as I am supposed to. The more I run, the slower I get...but I'm just happy to be running for as long as I am. I am now running for 5 minutes at a time with a 2 minute walk in between....so essentially 20 minutes out of my 30 minute work out are running! Next week it bumps up to 8 minutes of running at a time...so (yikes!) we'll see how that goes! I'm nervous...and some days I just want to quit. BUT...this week at WW...they said that next week they were bringing in this guest to talk about a WW 5K...which would be perfect for me. They're going to have training and everything...so I think it was God telling me to quit being such a baby and get my butt in gear!

Enjoy your day off. It sure feels nice to take a break sometimes. Way to go with your running. You're doing such a great job - I think I might even be inspired to try to run a 5 k again someday soon ... but maybe not too soon.
