A whole new world

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 Smile

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?

friday 002

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???

    Yay for a feel good run! 🙂 I do love perogies. I need to start doing yoga again. Somehow I’ve become very unflexible and besides yoga is good for the mind and soul too I really should. This weekend the family and I are doing a 5K for wounded warriors and I have work. Those are my only plans for now.

    I love pierogies, but I haven’t had one in ages. You really can’t go wrong with ANYTHING stuffed with taters!

    Pierogies are delish! Love them.

    And, I’m SO proud of you for thinking about the next morning. I practically clapped from my chair 🙂 I remember when I realized I had to start planning my nights around my exercise the next day and it was a really weird experience. But, yes. Welcome to the other side!
