Remember how confident and cocky I was when I posted the weekend quote. Yea, well, I sure enjoyed myself this weekend. I enjoyed the stuffed shells, fresh Italian Bread, Chocolate Cheesecake, meatballs, pizza a-n-d ice cream. Mixed in with all the indiscretions was a lot of healthy stuff too, whole wheat pancakes, papaya smoothie, salmon, a ton of veggies and more then my fair share of water.
On top of the food, It was a CRAZY weekend all around. Friday night the husband and I took the toddler out, Saturday morning I had a bit of a fiasco (more in a bit) then the in-laws came, I cooked ALL day for dinner, when out to a Poker tournament that night, woke up early this morning for a run, went shopping with "the girls" (and the toddler) and attended a jewelry party with some friends from the gym. Needless to say NOTHING got done around the house and now I feel like I’m starting my week behind but it was worth it. I had a great weekend!
OK, so on to this "fiasco". Saturday morning I gear up and get ready for a boot camp class. It’s raining. I remember that I haven’t checked the mail the day before. So I place the ipod on the roof of the car so it doesn’t get wet when I walk to the mailbox. I grab the mail, hop in the car and head to the gym. When I arrive, it hits me, I FORGOT THE IPOD ON THE ROOF!
I call the husband frantically, have him run out into the rain and check the drive-way. No luck. So I *try* to decide it will be OK and I head into the gym only to discovered they canceled the class. Side note: Who cancels a boot camp class because it’s raining. IT’S BOOT CAMP!! Anyway, I hop back in the car and start to look for the ipod on my ride home.
I come home completely devastated as the iPod and the Nike+ are one of my biggest motivators. Not to mentioned I just left $180 on the roof of the car. I was SO mad at myself that I started to clean. Do you do that? When I get mad I clean and try to get organized, it’s my way to deal. Anyway, the poor husband felt so bad for me he went searching in the rain all through the community thinking it had to fall off rather quickly.
I pretty much conceded that it was gone. My in-laws were on the way and I needed to get some groceries for dinner. I hop in the car and on my way out of our community, don’t you know, I spot it! There, lying in the wet grass getting pelted with rain is my iPod Nano in tact! Unbelievable! And it worked! However, I fried the Nike+. But hey, I’d rather replace a $30 gadget then $150 mp3 player!
Needless to say I could not record my run this morning but thankfully Carrie had hers and she recorded for me. We didn’t make our 55 minute goal but it’s no big deal. We ran our butts off on some crazy hilly terrain for 4.76 miles! Carrie sent me the stats.
OK, I’m heading to bed early. I want to start the week of with a good night sleep. I am going to start keeping a running food journal on twitter, I think I need to change up my approach a bit. I do that every couple of months, if you haven’t noticed. ;~)
