TGIF! Oh yeah!
It's been a long week kids. There have been some good decisions and some bad decisions :-(
Remember what I said about If You Buy It You WILL Eat It? Well it's true. I broke down and bought a bag of the candy cane hershey kisses. I don't even want to tell you, but it did not last long...just a few days. I couldn't help it. It's like some Crazy-Eyed monster took over. I seriously had no control. I know you may not believe me, but it's true. I don't know what happens. I can put them in the drawer and within 5 minutes I'm consumed with wanting to eat them. Just one more...well one more handful... I really don't know if I will ever be able to kick this chocolate addiction.
I've been doing some overtime so I haven't gotten the workouts at night that I would like to. This wouldn't be so bad if I had walked a lot during lunch this week. Sadly, I walked twice. Just Monday and Thursday. Although technically I walked today. lol. I was telling my friend about the SkinnyGirl Margarita mix and how the Wine & Spirit store has them on sale right now (because oh yeah, I stopped for another bottle last night...I wanted to make sure I had enough for Thanksgiving :-). She said she wanted to go and wanted me to go with her. I wanted to walk. So we walked to the store at lunch. It's not exactly a safe walk (lack of sidewalks) so I doubt we will do that again, but I didn't feel so bad about not walking.
Tonight I was meeting a friend at the mall, but I was going to get there an hour early. I figured I could grab something to eat and look around before she got there. I could not decide what I wanted. I immediately thought Subway, but I had that earlier this week. I had a serious craving for Bourbon chicken and found a place that had it. It came with rice and one side. I chose the mixed veggies. It was so delicious. The veggies were awesome. I felt good. I also felt full. Not uncomfortable, but not skinny. Sounds like the perfect time to go try on some new workout outfits for the Half. NOT. I did it anyway.
It was...how shall I put this...HORRIBLE. I felt so bloated. I had not had enough water during the day. I was full of chicken and rice. UGH. It was a dumb DUMB move. Plus, I'm short so some of the pants were way too long. I did find a pair of pants that I will probably go back for (my butt looked AMAZING by the way). The tops were okay, but I want to keep looking for the right one.
I did find something awesome for me tonight. I love homedic massagers. I found a lumbar massager on clearance. It normally sells for $45 and I got it for $10. Right now is massaging my lower back. But I will be moving it to my feet shortly. Merry Christmas to me! It's especially nice because my company is now offering 10 minute chair massages on Wednesdays. I got mine this week, but I got robbed on time. I barely got 5 minutes. It was such a tease :-( Everyone was getting their massages while my chick was helping move furniture. I had barely sat down before they announced time was up for everyone. It was a big reminder to take care of your muscles though. It felt good. I am going to treat myself to a foot massage after the race. My poor legs and feet are beat up. They are skinny, but they are sore.
So tomorrow was supposed to be my next trial run. I am still planning on walking, but I have a ton of things to do before I leave for the Outerbanks next week. So I'm going to have to dial it back. I may only get 8 miles in, but I have to be happy with that. I will be walking a LOT next week :-) So I will be okay. I have total faith in my body at this point. That's such a good feeling.
Before I go wanted to just talk about one thing. When I signed up for the 5K and for the Half they both asked what size shirt I wanted. I totally had a panic attack. How small do they run? Are they made for boobs? Maybe I should go big just in case. I chose a medium for both. It was hard for me to do that though. My first thought was go for the Large. I'm proud that I kept it to medium though. Clothing sizes are still hard to adjust to. I have a sweet poncho sweater that I got from Old Navy a couple years ago. I love it. But, I always loved it because it hid the right things. I wore it again this week and was actually sad that I was covering up so much :-) I always get compliments when I wear it though so it's easy to adjust. I just think it's fun that I am not trying to cover up anymore. GO ME!
Have a wonderful weekend. I'll be back tomorrow, I promise.I have some more overtime to do and I'll need a break. haha.
