Another bad week done

Last week felt like the longest week ever. The kids were on school break, so we were all off our schedule. My husband was home with them the first 3 days and I worked from home the other 2 days. We went from snow over the weekend to 30 days of 70 degree weather.

I didn't run at all during the week. My legs were achy from the hilly 5 miles and my legs balked when I tried to run on the treadmill. I got my 10K steps in every day except for Thursday.

Eating was horrible. Kids kept wanting to bake during the day which meant goodies in the house, their eating schedule was off which meant unplanned dinners. Finally we went out to dinner Friday night and I was so mentally exhausted that I enjoyed the food at Dave & Busters, and the alcohol, and skipped Weight Watchers. I had told myself I would still go to WW even if I was up (which I would have been) but I decided I wanted a 'I-am-not-leaving-the-house' Saturday because I had so much organizing I wanted to do. And I did it! It felt fantastic!

Sunday I was supposed to do my 3 mile race. 2017 was supposed to be the year I didn't blow off any races. But I woke up early and just wanted to run - not drive an hour, deal with everything you deal with with a race, not run until 11:00 and then come home. So I decided at about 4 am that I would run 5 miles from home, not 3 miles far away. And that is what i did - I was done by 10:00, showered, did a few things around the house and then did a well deserved sit on my butt for the rest of the day (not because I ran 5 miles - but because I've been organizing like crazy and wanted to!)

Today is Monday - kids are back at school and work is crazy as can be. I was supposed to be "back on Program" again - until leftover cans of Coke were left in the fridge and I snagged one to have with my lunch because I was dragging from staying up too late to watch the Oscars.

Here is to a better week!
