Work was busy, but no more than usual, especially for the end of the month.
Had a great run on Tuesday, although it turned into a bit of a race! We were supposed to do a race pace tempo run, but K. in my group was feeling fast and I spent the rest of the 5km trying to keep up with her! Our race pace is 7:07, yet we finished with an average of 6:44!!! Kept it a bit more in control on Wednesday, averaging 7:04 over our 8km. Went for a beer afterwards and continued to bask in my Melissa's glory! I am feeling really, really good about Toronto!
Found what I lost the previous week at weigh-in, but that's life, right? I seem to be enjoying the roller-coaster ride of late, and just have to ride it out until it's over. And just realized that I quietly celebrated 12 years of being a Weight Watcher's member. Now, don't freak out about the time...I'm a stubborn, slow learner and I know the plan works when you work the plan. When you're floopy about it...well, it's a roller-coaster ride!
I was dead tired yesterday, but I don't know why. What I do know is that I didn't want to risk hurting myself doing something stupid, so I skipped boot camp, came home and had a nap. And another glorious Saturday afternoon one today. Man, I miss those!!! I really have to concentrate on my sleep these next few weeks, and aim for at least 7 hours a night. I don't want to get sick, so am also upping the Emergen-C and glutamine intake.
I did head to Costco this morning for contacts, and somehow came home with over $200 worth of stuff!!! I did buy some stuff for the food drive and also stocked up on chicken, salmon, tilapia and other stuff...and just realized I forgot to look for Almond Breeze, which someone else said they found there! Drat...next trip. One thing I did get was Sabra Hummus, an artichoke spinach blend. It became part of supper, when I toasted a Dempsters multigrain thin-bun, schmeared with the hummus, some sliced artichokes and a fried piece of tilapia. Side of grape tomatoes, and dinner was quick, easy and delicious.
I've got to get ready for the Run for the Cure in the morning. Little 5k jaunt. It's a cause I love, but a race I hate. It's chaos...14,000+ walkers, runners, dogs, kids, strollers...no one seems to know where they're going or what they're doing! I haven't run it for years, but my old pacer is a survivor and wanted me on her team. So, for her I will endure. Meeting up at 7:30 to get my shirt, so I should start getting ready for bed. Early morning tomorrow.
