Last night, our running clinic had a 4.5 group mile run. Keep in mind, I was three runs behind them because of sickness and one day of laziness. I was terrified to say the least because I knew I’d feel it. I tried not to whine to Leigh Ann too much because the girl has given me atleast 34514 pep talks since we’ve been friends. Had to give her a day of peace lol! I arrived at the gym around 5:15pm and thought “holy crap this is gonna suck!” and to be honest, for the first half mile it did. I kept thinking I’d never make it through the whole thing but shockingly enough, it got easier. I felt great after, dare I call it a runner’s high? Even Leigh Ann commented that she saw a difference in my post-run demeaner. You mean like I didn’t seem like I’d pass out and/or puke? Sweet.
Tomorrow I am attempting to run my Saturday 3 miler with my husband. We will see how that goes. That lucky duck has the ability to run for miles and miles after not running for months. We are planning to run to the gym, do some strength training, then run home. God help me.
After that we will shower (I promise) and head out to my very first family reunion. Fun times there. I am excited to see some family members I haven’t seen in a while and get introduced 48382756 times to the family I’ve never met (not). I am more concerned about the food than anything because it’s being catered so I have no idea what to expect. I am used to my routine of knowing exactly what is in everything I make and eat. Counting calories is hard when you don't make the food, but I will survives (as long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive)
Sunday we are going to my mom’s for a barbeque. I was asked to bring a side dish so I’m making “skinny” green bean casserole. I LOVE this dish because it feels so bad even though it’s really not. I use fat free cream of mushroom. My husband will be running errands today so I asked him to pick up the ingredients.
Had to throw in a little Honey Boo Boo for you this week! Just can't escape it
I am also devastated to announce that I have in fact decided to return the famous pink pants. I know I caused a stir with them yesterday, and I truly wanted to be a bad ass and wear them proudly, but I just can’t. They fit well, I just discovered this morning that I have not a single article of clothing that looks good with them. I tried yall, really I did! I think I will return them for either a khaki pair that matches with everything or those red polka dotted ones I was eyeing! I promise to keep you updated, as I know this is pressing information in all y of our lives. Kidding.
Have a good weekend ya’ll!
