It’s Friday. It is November 4th. This means it is day 4 of my November thankful challenge (as well as day 4 of NoJoMo). So this Friday, I am obviously thankful that it is Friday, but other than the norm, I am thankful to have started wrapping Christmas presents last night. I wrapped 4 of them, and then I started on a 5th (one of J’s) as he was pulling up, so I had to stick it back in the brown cardboard box it was delivered in and save it for another day.
I cheated on my diet a little bit last night. Just a very little bit. I had 1 serving of ice cream (approx. – I did not measure this time). So it could have been much much worse, obviously, but J got it out and brought me a spoon. There was not much left in the carton, so we finished it off. We probably each ate 1 serving of ice cream. I have definitely had much worse ice cream days. I don’t like it, but I need to take a deep breath and accept the fact that sometimes I mess up. I need to be a little less tough on me.
I was thinking about doing a race tomorrow with a coworker, Henry. It is close to our work, and therefore close to my home. However, after going back and forth about it, I have decided to run 3 miles on Sunday instead, with Katie. It will be her first run in nearly a year. She took her entire pregnancy off from running (and did spinning instead) and is now ready to give it a try. She is less worried about running itself, and more worried about her chest. To be honest, she has NEVER had a small chest, and while I have never breast fed before, I don’t know how much bigger it actually is. Katie is a sweats or a blousy dress sort of girl, so her body shape (while always fit) can be hard to determine. :-)
So yes, another workout with Mike on Sunday. I gave J the heads up today. I just want him to talk to me if this is bugging him. That’s all. And I am not sure that I want to wait until we’re on vacation next week. I just don’t want him to be upset with me. You know?
