Random Wednesday: Last day of work, Happy Hour, and Baseball

It's Random Wednesday Beautiful People!

Yesterday was my last day sitting behind a desk. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....All day long people kept telling me that I was glowing. And I was. You could not wipe the grin off of my face. I am so ready to begin the next chapter of my life.

*****

Sometimes I really just want to eat a giant plate of french fries for dinner.

*****

So yesterday I went to the mall at lunch to walk for 2 miles and then after my exit interview I went back to the mall to walk 3 more before happy hour. I ended up walking 4 more. Go Me!

What I didn't consider is that I would show up to Happy Hour starving.


*****

The bet is on for the Push Up challenge. Still have to pick a date, but now I know what is at stake. I went full on this morning. I want to win! (it's only lunch, don't get too excited)


*****

Today I had a margarita (at lunch!) and a mocha frappuccino. My margarita was Skinny. And my frappuccino was Light.

My plan for this morning was to tackle this new beginning head on. I was going to run for 5 miles. Do 30 minutes of core work. And finish with 30 minutes of yoga.

Since I got my pedicure I did 11 miles of walking in two days. I have a blister forming at the base of my big toe at the fresh skin. I have a 5K this Sunday morning. I have to let it rest.

I also got in late last night. So this morning I still woke up early, but let myself lay in bed and read for an hour before getting up (my own personal little celebration). Then I got up for Core and Yoga. The downfall is that I had not showered since Monday night and I had walked and sweated a little the day before. My stink was starting to make me nauseous. I couldn't do any more.

*****

I was walking past Old Navy yesterday and saw the big sales. I was intrigued, but I talked myself out of going in. And then I saw the long maxi skirts on sale for $15. I went in. Turns out they were maternity. Would anyone know if I got one for myself?  I didn't, but dang it they were cute!

*****

Baseball season is here and I could not be more excited. I read an article about crazy unique foods being offered at the ballparks. An 18 inch stuffed corn dog. There is a 3 pound hot dog. The corn dog can be found at the Arizona Diamondbacks stadium.

Ironically there was a complaint from fans that the food was getting too healthy.  Nice response. What ever happened to just enjoying a hot dog and peanuts at a game? Why does there have to be so much gluttony?
