This morning I woke up to a super bright, gorgeous blue sky. I was a bit tentative when I opened the door for the dog to go out this morning, but I was hit right in the face with a FIFTY FIVE degree day. I couldn't get into my running clothes fast enough--and as soon as I got by the pond, I saw all the turtles out getting their sun and I remembered yet again why I live in the south. I had a great 5K run, and then took the dog for a walk...I checked the weather and the rest of the week is supposed to get even better.
I really need some sun and outside time---nothing new is wrong yet I have been feeling all blue and pensive about mine and Mr. P's mortality, and I am sure the gray, cold skies are making it worse. Plus, this might sound ridiculous, but I took too much time off, and I am having a very hard time getting my ass back into gear!
Mr. P and I had a very nice weekend. We stocked up on healthy foods at Costco on Friday. Saturday morning we went running (in the pouring down rain, booyah), went to visit with Teddy's family, and capped off the day watching the Colts win with some friends (with drinks!). Yesterday I made Goulash soup in the crock pot and caught up on my DVR.
I weighed in this morning with a 1lb loss, which gets me to 83.87% of my starting weight. However, according to my fat percentage I lost 3.26 pounds of FAT! I guess getting back into the swing of weights and Body Pump are beginning to pay benefits, I hope Mr. P and I do better about going to the gym year round, not just the winter this year.
On another healthy front, I am halfway through my training for the 1/2 marathon, and I am getting both nervous and excited. This week's training includes a 10.2 mile run on Sunday. YIKES!!
