I'm back!!

I can access Blogger from work again which is really helpful because I don't seem to keep up well from home.  I kept myself busy all weekend, but as of this morning, I'm now 414 blog posts behind.  Whoa! 


I had the afternoon off and went to take my car in AGAIN.  I have a loaner and they are supposed to have it fixed and for good this week.  I will believe it when I see it.  Then I went to the Mall to pick up my packet for my 5K and while I was there I picked up a couple of different water bottles for running.  I enjoyed a nice evening at home watching TV!!


I got up and went to Jazzercise which was a nice way to start off the day.  I ran some errands and then went to see the Conspirator in the afternoon.  If you haven't seen it, I recommend it.  I have no idea if it is at all historically accurate, but it was entertaining!  After the movie, I went to church then out to dinner with my friend Ben.  I ended up going to bed early.


My totally LAZY day!  I sat around all morning and watched the Indy 500 festivities and race.  Then I went to my friend's house to play in the pool for a little bit.  Then I went home and watched the Nascar race and caught up on some other TV.


5K day.  This one I ran with my friend, Alisha, from my support group.  Or rather, we started running together and I told her not to let me hold her back.  Girl kicked my butt!!  My pace was off from last time by 26 seconds per mile, so I ended up almost a minute and a half slower than the last race.  But it had a lot more hills than the last one, so I'm not going to be too disappointed.
This is us before we started. 

This is us after...all sweaty and gross, but victorious! 

Random:  okay, so you all remember the guy that poked me on Facebook?  Well yesterday, he "liked" this picture and "liked" a friend's comment telling me that I look AMAZING.  Isn't that interesting?

Anyway, I'm meeting my sorority daughter for dinner tonight which will be lots of fun!! 

Oh wait...monthly weigh in.  Damn it.  I knew I was avoiding something.  Anyway, this month is the first time I have gained weight over the course of a month (except for when I was deflated for my tonsillectomy).  I'm not going to lie, I was disappointed.  Especially after all my tough talk about hitting 100 pounds this month.  Ugh.  Anyway, I sucked it up and updated my ticker. 

I have reasons and excuses, but it is what it is.  June will be better, I have no doubt.  This little bump doesn't take away my happiness.  Just reminds me that it is a lifelong journey and I need to continue to bring my focus back to center as often as necessary.

Happy short week!

Alright Girl with the FB crush!!! ;-)

Congrats on doing the 5K! Whether you did 26 seconds more per mile or not, you are still doing it and that is what counts.

So glad you are back!

Sounds like a great weekend!!! I really need to find a 5k and sign up. I guess I worry about wakling one though because I'm not quite up to running.

Don't worry too much about the scale, you will kick butt in June!
