Overall, my weekend went pretty well. M and I had plans to go hiking Saturday, but we got a bit distracted, because someone (Me) got drunk on Friday (off four beers. FOUR. I don't even want to tell you how many it used to take me, I'm quickly becoming a lightweight), and somehow, somewhere, dropped my phone. I was so sad, and embarrassed, and angry. It was going to cost me a 90 dollar deductable, but I ended up getting my old phone working somehow, so I'm using that :-) It's slow, and glitchy and I remember why I hated it so much, but hey, it's a phone, it works, that's all I can ask for. :-)
I did manage to have good days on Saturday and Sunday, staying in my points,eating healthy meals, and getting in my activity (even though we didn't hike on Saturday, I ended up playing outside with the little boy I babysit for. 2 hours of running after a 3 year old should definetly give me something! haha) and having a really good workout on Sunday, even though while running my stomach started to cramp up for no reason at all. Grr...
I also decided to give running outside a go again on Monday. Again, it was awesome :-) Maybe it's just that beach, haha. I ran 2.47 miles in about 35 minutes. Slower than I normally would in a 5K, (my time was 42 for the full 3.2) but I did take a 3 minute break halfway to try and work out the shin pain I was having, and I walked in the begining and end. So I should have no problem working that extra mile up :-) I'm definetly going to start running outside more too, Maybe 1-2 times a week. I can't help but really like it more, it's very peaceful and I feel so accomplished by the end of it :-)
After my awesome run I went out to dinner with a friend of mine, which was another victory. I got the chicken philly, which is basically chicken and cheese with fries, but it is amazing :-) I only ate 2/3 of it, and about half my fries, so I didn't do a terrible amount of damage. with the two beers I had over the course of 3 hours of good conversation, I only put myself over my dailies by 10, which I definetly had to use. It was a really nice night. This is a friend who up until a drunken meltdown a month ago we hadn't really talked much, and had definetly moved away from one another a lot. It was nice to be able to talk again like old times, and be honest with one another, it was a good time :-)
Unfortunetly, it was followed by my worst allergy episode in a long time. I normally get sinus infections about 2X a year. this was different.
But thankfully, unlike most times I'm sick, I didn't just eat everything in sight. I ate full meals, and honestly wasn't that hungry. I did treat myself to a raspberry lime rickey, but hey, I had like 8 points left for the day :-)
So WI on Friday, and I'm hoping for something. I've been good this week, gotten two good workouts in (with two more planned), and a weekend full of babysitting (two different families, lots of money!), which leaves little room for the temptation to fall off plan :-)
