I know I am not exactly on track with my running, but I know I'll get there. I was glad to get out on the bike as much as I did this week. I am having difficulty coping with the heat. Seriously sucks to be sweating before I even get into the car from my front door. 15 feet, not far and my knees of all body parts were sweating already. It is gross and bordering on unbearable. Yes I know the solution is to get up at 5 and run before work, but I am just not there yet. 

Girl Power
So I was invited to a girls overnighter on Saturday. I was super excited and expected just lame girl smack talking, drinking & laughing. As it turns out, it was girl power fest 2010. I had originally planned on driving back home (1.5 hours) late that night because Super Hubby had a full day of fishing and golfing planned today. WORST case scenario if I had too much to drink or was too tired I set my alarm for 4:30 so I could get home in time for him to head out on his Sunday adventures. Well it was a combo, I had too much to drink and was too tired. Glad I set the alarm! There were 9 girls..ahem women. 5 over 40 and 4 of us under. 3 of the 5 over 40 all work in San Francisco in the Financial district. It was great to be around women who are smart, confident and happy with their position in life. Instead of the complaining or nit picking on men, talking about what diet we're on or something else typical and shallow, we all talked about how awesome life is. Without bragging, we shared how hard each of us work, why we chose the men in our lives and how we are all exactly where we chose to be in life. It was an amazing night and alcohol had nothing to do with it although there was some great wine being poured.

Thankful Three

  1. For becoming confident enough in myself that I can share how proud I am of my life
  2. For women who encourage others to be the best version of themselves and are not threatened by other's successes
  3. For kids who let me sleep in after a long night/early morning...also for taking 2 hours naps at the same time so Mama could also sneak in an afternoon nap

A girls night out sounds like a fabulous idea and I love your Thankful three! I love women who share rather than try to tear down other women! You are very lucky to have those women in your life!
