It's so good to be back PLAYING around on my favorite Friday hop!
My BFF and her hubby went on vacay and I went out to take care of their kitty. Twice a day. Here's Sammy-
Cute, isn't he? And sweet too. Except that I ended up with the allergy attack from hell. No matter. I still love you Sammy! cough*sneeze
The allergy attack from hell prevented me from running for a while- I couldn't breathe and any exertion at all left me hacking up a lung. But I was back this week! I'm also back on the 30 Day Shred. Today is Day 4. And I'm still alive. So far.
I've discovered that the best way for me to run right now is the way Biz at My Bizzy Kitchen often does it- walk a song, run a song. It works great for me. And, sometimes, I find myself running two songs. I get frustrated a lot with the running because I feel like I'm never going to get up to running that 5k. But then I remind myself that it was only a few months ago that I couldn't run 20 or 30 feet. Now, I run way more than that. And I will run that 5k by Thanksgiving. I WILL. This would certainly be easier if I possessed any form of patience whatsoever.
I'm am revisiting Jilian Michael's 30 Day Shred. Today is Day 4 and I decided to try Level 2. What an idiot. I can't figure out whether I'm dead or dying but I'm pretty sure it's one of those. To add insult to injury? I went out for a walk/run afterwards with DoodleBug. Like I said- Idiot.
Yesterday, DoodleBug and I went to Mimi's (my mother's) to visit for the day. She wanted to see if she could take my new dress- that is too big for me- up. Three inches on BOTH sides people. The company doesn't have one in the size I need- and the size I nee does NOT have the letter x beside it! YES! I still have a long way to go, but I'm feeling pretty motivated that it WILL actually happen!
Completed the April A-Z challenge this week and then turned around and signed right up for the NaBloPoMo for May. WTH was I thinking? If you are
You have plenty of time to enter to win a quart of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil! Just go to yesterday's post which you can find HERE.
That wraps up the week! Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
