The Turn Around

Wednesday Hump Day sounds funny, but like an out and back run it marks the turn around to the work week. It has been a great last few days. My bday weekend meant a start to recovering from sleep deprivation. I say start because while I got an AMAZING night's rest Friday, Saturday not so much. I have been watching what I eat and how much. I haven't been eating after 8:00 either. So Saturday night's 4 course meal that started at 8:45 with a hearthy "Mammoth Nut" chocolately beer  as a pre-drink. I am not complaining, my bday dinner was amazing, but oh good lord I could not get comfortable to sleep for the life of me that night. Sunday night my perfect children slept perfectly and I got 8 hours. I was supposed to run yesterday but I slept in in the AM so I thought I would run in the evening (day time 104 degree heat just isn't going to happen). Of course my perfect daughter decided not to go to bed until after 10:00 PM so I thought I would make it up this AM....ooops, slept in:) I need to remember that 3 miles on the schedule is still an important distance not to be dismissed. So while I have a 6:00 PM mani/pedi scheduled after work, I am seriously going to consider getting that make up 3 mile run in tonight.

Hope are having a great week so far and that you have great things planned for the Holiday weekend.

Thankful Three

  1. For sleep
  2. For a babysitter who sent our kids home with dinner made last night. Such a time saver.
  3. For a husband who recognizes wall sits are actually hard
