relax...don't do it!

well, you can sum up my three day weekend with one word: relaxation! i went to my zumba class friday evening and ended the night w/a nice hot shower and turned in early. it seems these are what my future friday nights will hold since i will be practicing early saturday mornings w/tnt again! this will be my 6th season!

practice saturday morning was at 7am, but after kickoff when the season really begins we will be practicing at 6am! ugh! but we have a great team so far and it's really something i am looking forward to--plus the greatest incentive is i'm helping to save lives in the process! we only ran two miles, but my new friend debbie was really fast so it felt more like 5 miles! the sun came up and i don't do well w/that-i had a horrible migraine the rest of the day and spent the day watching lifetime! not too bad if you ask me. note to self: when training for marathon, be sure to add advil to the grocery list!

i was able to spend sunday w/my honey. we spent the morning shopping, had lunch at red lobster and spent the remainder of the evening at half price books. i bought a few books since they had a really good sale going on, (i love memorial day) and one really caught my eye. the wine and food lover's diet!

the introduction went like this, "i love good food. i hate being overweight. i love to drink wine w/dinner. i hate the self-deprivation of dieting." i was hooked. if you've been reading my blog, you know that i've been struggling w/weight loss.(mostly because i don't know how to stop eating and don't exercise as much as i should) anyway, i thought i'd give it a try. becoming a raw foodie may be too extreme for me right now...but i just may continue to incorporate some of the good eats and smoothies!

what i like about this book is it is 28 days and has a menu as well as a recipe for breakfast, lunch & dinner for every day! this is exactly what i need! when i try something new, the longest i last is usually about a week, mainly because i get tired of eating the same things. hopefully this will hold me accountable!

i'm starting this diet tomorrow, since it is 28 days it will end exactly june 30th, the last day of the month. i'd like to think i was that clever, but really, i just didn't feel like going grocery shopping yesterday! :) i spent my day off organizing my closet and relaxing a little more! hey, i work hard, i deserve it! also, i have a feeling this month is going to be a crazy one, so i will relax when i can! today also starts the juneathon!! good luck everyone!
