Yesterday was a great day.
After sparking and posting my blog, I got a suprise phone call from my aunt inviting me over for the day. SCORE!!!
went over there, and spent the day with her, my uncle and my one cousin. We washed cars, got coffee, laid out in the sun (although it ended up SUPER WINDY!) and just enjoyed our day.
My aunt made us hot dogs, and then we got yogurtland. And, I'm happy to say I stayed OP (on plan for weight watchers) all day. Including the yogurt!
As many of you know, I love going over there. I'm super close with my aunt, and going to her house is just stress free, relaxing, and just what I need to mellow out.
This morning, I woke up and as I was drinking my coffee, my youngest cousin called. He wanted to meet for coffee (love my family!). So, I met him and his roommate at our coffee shop nearby. And, to my suprise, they had a present for me! They met this writer who is also a runner, and they got his latest book autographed for me! I'm so excited to read it. Its called "To Be A Runner - How racing up mountains, running with the bulls or just taking on a 5-K makes you a better person (and the world a better place)" by Martin Duard. And I was TOUCHED! My cousin immediately thought of me when he saw the book (i guess hes made friends with the guy thats why they were there) and it made my morning. So sweet. And perfect for motivation while getting ready to start training for the LB marathon.
After leaving coffee, I went to whole foods and got cherries - YUM!!! And some more protein mix for my smoothies (metabolic reset shake). Planning on making myself one for lunch!
No other plans for the day..goin to workout at some point and stay on plan!
I made a deal with THIRDXACHARM yesterday..last year at one of our runs, in the goody bag we got coupons for free pazookies from BJs (those of you who dont know what that is..you're missin out) warm chocolate chip cookie fresh out of the oven with ice cream on top! Anyway, they expire on june 30th. And she said 'we have a great june, then lets go out for these june 30th! And I responded with "if we are under 145, then we can have them!" so thats my deal! Gonna make it happen!!!
