alone and running, in a good way!

I’ve had a crazy, busy, but mostly good week, and the weekend is about to get even better.

I get to be alone! I feel terrible saying that, but seriously, I know you all get it. Sometimes you just need to be alone.

In about an hour I’m heading out to bring Josh to my MIL for the long weekend. She loves to take him and do lots of stuff with him. I imagine the beach will be involved, as will something to do with horses, as always. We get him back on Monday. That means I get to sleep, completely soundlessly, for three whole nights. Don’t hate me!

So I did go running again yesterday, and it was hard but it still felt great. My calves were burning, but my lungs weren’t. I think that’s progress! I’m going every other day right now, just until my body gets more used to it.

I’m going to do my first 5k on July 4!! My friend Nicole and I are going to do it as a practice one. We’ll walk as needed – for both of us! She broke her toes a few weeks ago so it will slow her down enough for me to keep up. 😉 Heh.

Here’s the best thing – the running has helped me break through my plateau – I lost about 4 more pounds! Woo-freaking-hoo!!! The combination of that and going back to writing in my food journal and watching my calories again has made a huge difference. I really need to remember that the next time I hit a wall.

So my plans for the weekend are to run/walk, clean the house, nap, garden, shop (alone! OMG I can try things on!), watch whatever I want to on TV, maybe hit some yard sales, and go see Star Trek.

What are you doing with your long holiday weekend?
