Yesterday I had an impromptu night out.
I was at work when one of my friends from work asked me if I wanted to go out for a drink tonight. Of course I couldn’t say no!
I checked with my Mom and Justine to make sure that it would be okay if she stayed at my parent’s.
We went to a little local bar and had a drink. I didn’t want to drink too much because I knew that I wanted to make sure I got my run in, in the morning.
Can I tell you this has never happened before. I have never considered the next day and how I would feel. I have never not wanted to drink too much because I wanted to exercise the next day. I have never looked forward to the next morning because I knew the weather was going to be great for a run.
My eyes are finally opening.
I got home around 2, and had to be up at 6:00 so I could go to my parent’s house so I could see Justine before she left for school.
And then it was run time.
The weather was PERFECT. It was a cool morning, and I realized that it was a lot easier to run when it’s not hot out. I had a great run. A better run then I had on Wednesday. I ran a little bit longer and I beat my Wednesday time by a minute! Can you say amazing because that is how I felt once I was done.
I was proud of myself for not allowing a night out to deter me from my run in the morning.
Afterwards I came home and took a nap
One new thing I am loving right now is On Demand. I have been looking for some yoga workouts and have found a few good one’s on there. I have been incorporating yoga into my daily routine and love the way it makes me feel. I feel relaxed, my muscles feel relaxed and I feel strong after poses.
I feel like I’m opening myself up to a whole new world.
For lunch I had one of my favorite foods… pierogies.
Do you like pierogies?
A pasta shell filled with mashed potato…. what more could you ask for?
And even better… 3 of these babies are 160 calories. I had an extra one.
I’m sure everyone else is enjoying that it’s Friday and it’s beautiful out!
Does anyone have any fun weekend plans???
