Busy but good!

Day #5 of no exercise and my body feels like a big, flat slug.  Not that it made me spring out of bed and go running this morning or anything.  Because I SO didn't.  I did bring my clothes to work though and the plan is to run a couple of miles after work.  I have my 5K on Saturday, so it really is necessary for me not to sit around for another week!

Tomorrow is the end of the month.  The end of No Scale August.  It is interesting because Lizard was supposed to bring my scale today and she forgot...and I didn't really care.  I guess my attachment to that little device has waned a bit over the last few weeks.  It is will be interesting to see how long that lasts.  Of course, I think part of my nonchalance stems from not feeling as though I have lost anything this month.  I have worked out like a beast (until this week), but I have not had good eating habits and I've certainly not made the best food choices.  My jeans don't seem to fit any tighter, but I don't think they are any looser either.  I guess I will find out in the morning...

I had a WONDERFUL time in Louisiana.  BFF is from a super small town near Lafayette and life there is really SLOOOOOOOWWW.  Visiting is just delightful!  Plus, BFF Daddy made gumbo and I'm convinced that he makes the best gumbo on the planet.  I even got to bring some home!  He also walked me through the steps, so I might be trying to make my very own gumbo (when it isn't 100 billion degrees outside.)

Tomorrow I leave for Louisville to visit my brother and his family for a long holiday weekend.  I'm really looking forward to it since I haven't seen the kids since Christmas.  My oldest nephew is allegedly now taller than me.  ::shudder:: 

I miss you all a whole bunch!!  If I have some down time in Louisville I will try to read up, but I'm guessing that will not be happening.  :)  But I will catch up with you all very soon.

Love & hugs!!

OMG...mail me the kids to your place and leave the Gumbo in the freezer. I will gladly take that off your hands. I'm just saying. That's what friends are for.

Enjoy the time with your brother and his family. Don't worry about catching up...just have fun.

Oops...not the kids...the keys to your place. LOL

I am a little bit nervous to step on the scale! eek!
have fun!

Laura Belle said...

Yes, Dawnya and I will be right over to take care of the Gumbo. It's fine.

Excited to see what your results are, BUT! I still think you kick major cute butt for all the CF you did this month. Girl, you're fantastic! (no matter what the scale says)

Oh, I love it anytime I can get off the go-fast life and do or go somewhere slooooow ... have a fab rest of your trip !

Yay, so glad you checked in!

You might have to make us all some gumbo in Chicago. Once I figure out the logistics of that, I'll let you know. ;)

Ooooh hello hero!! We've missed you. You are absolutely excused from exercise for a week darlin! Best of luck in your 5K. You'll kick that 3.1's ass! :)
