i would like to begin this blog by telling you that i am 7 days fast-food free!! i didn't say i've been eating healthy, but i have not had a bite of fast food in 7 whole days! that's a huge accomplishment for me! only 23 more days to go! actually, i'm hoping to break the habit!
[friday] i had an early airrosti appointment and decided to take the rest of the day off. the session went well, but still was not able to run on saturday :( i was very productive for a day off. i cooked and cleaned, went grocery shopping, did laundry, did the dishes twice! and if you know me, you know that i HATE dishes! i also spent the day packing my lunch for the week, slicing fruit and putting into containers. i bought these awesome containers (pictured above) at walmart 3/$1.50!! i bought several! i packed turkey, pepper jack cheese & spinach sandwiches, carrots & a small spinach salad in each. i also packed some spinach, grilled chicken w/parmesan cheese in others. a yummy treat!
[saturday] i intended to run 12 miles, but my shins had a mind of their own. they still hurt and i ended up walking only 10. another participant on the team, alyson, had the same problem w/her shins so we walked together- i sure hope we heal soon! after practice i made a mad dash home to shower and change and met mom at the movies. we saw EAT, PRAY, LOVE! such a great movie! i read the book and absolutely loved it! as always the book is way better, but i must say i was impressed by the movie! julia roberts did a great job...and i'm not saying that because she's my favorite actress either! i left the movies and headed to meet the boyfriend to go shopping for his one-year-old neice and then to her birthday party! birthday parties are more fun when you have kids...we have no intention of having kids, but i should have brought my god-daughter! too bad the kid had prior engagements! :)
[sunday] my boyfriend and i spent the day at seaworld. apparently everyone else in san antonio had the same idea! needless to say, we did not stay very long. however, we did have a lot of fun feeding the dolphins! precious, isn't she?
[monday] the annual labor day whine run! and i did whine a lot! my shins hurt sooo much and i think i will be staying off it for awhile. it's only when you're hurt that you notice the other hurt people on the course looking like idiots determined to finish at any expense! here is lila, me & kelley before the race:
and us w/a few fellow TNTers enjoying some wine afterwards! sangria to be exact!
then we spent the rest of the afternoon bbq'ing at kelley's house. we ate and drank and ate a lot more! a perfect way to end the wonderful weekend!
