Running in Skirts

i’m still blogging i swear!

Posted on: May 26, 2009

wow so i had three posts in a week last week, and dead air since then.  but i can explain!  it wasn’t even me not wanting or forgetting to blog.  the past six days have been a blur.  lets see how much i can actually remember (and how much i probably wish i don’t remember!)

tuesday night:  i am PUMPED to go for another 20 minute run. at least my head is… my body not so much.  i make it 5 minutes, so with warm-up/cool-down i had exercised for a whopping 15 minutes.  i felt like crap when i got home, until i checked my cpa exam score online.  I PASSED!  and not only did i pass, but i passed with a 91!  and not only did i get a 91, but it was the only exam i had left!  guess who’s a cpa?!  (*dances*)  so needless to say that made me feel better… and prompted me to have a glass of wine 🙂

wednesday:  you couldnt touch my mood on wednesday, even if i did have to stay at work til 8pm.  but i was taking off on thursday, and we had a four day weekend for the holiday, so i figured it was worth a few extra hours of work.  of course i decided not to exercise, because the night before had thrown off my schedule… so the bf and i went out for burgers and frozen drinks. 

thursday: didnt quite work out how i’d planned… aka i had wanted to get one more arms workout in before i had to wear a strapless dress on saturday.  guess what didnt happen?  and guess who met one of her friends at chick-fil-a in the mall?  and who then proceeded to drink orange juice and melon rum with her bff later that night?  (yes, btw, this makes three days in a row with an alcoholic beverage.)  oh but it was so good to just talk with my ashley girl. 

friday:  the day before the wedding!  i was supposed to plug in the treadmill at my parents house and crank out another 20 minutes… well i’m sure you can tell where this is going!  so i took my brother to the dentist instead, and then ran out immediately to spend the rest of the day with ashley girl.  it was well worth it in my opinion – i got a pretty red pedi for summer, and went shopping with my best friend, what could be worse than that?  i ate horribly that day too – including, but not limited to: mozzarella sticks, cheese fries, buffalo chicken sandwich, and crabby fries (with cheese, of course) at chickies and petes for the rehersal dinner.  oh, and beer.  (for those keeping track, that makes four days.)  but we had so much fun – i realized how much i’m going to miss some of the incidental people in ashleys life too, like her family and even waynes friends… i wont see them much even when she comes home to visit from CA, so it was nice to spend some time with them.

saturday was the wedding.  i will have a whole post on this when i upload the pictures to my computer.  it wont be about food or running or anything, just happiness – and i am going to make sure you all are forced to see the pictures 🙂  i hardly ate much on saturday – we didn’t have any time !  but at the reception i had filet and mashed potatoes.  and umm… wine.  no dessert though, i wasnt keen on anything they really had to offer.  it was prob for the best! 

sunday:  things started off well when i ordered my favorite veggie sandwich on million-grain wheat bread.  yum!  and i only ate  FEW fries (seriously!)  we went home and the bf and i completely vegged out, we even took a nap!  i havent napped since soph year in college!  and then we decided to go on a little date to the movies to see wolverine, and also to our favorite little brewery in king of prussia.  we had coupons, so we got a shrimp appetizer, which i was upset came fried (somehow missed “crispy” in the description), and an ahi tuna salad.  and beer.  (6 days.)

finally monday, and this weekend just caught up to me.  i had a greasy chicken sandwich for lunch, and wine.  (yup, one week straight of having at least one alcoholic beverage.  i am never drinking again! haha) by the time dinner came around i was feeling sick with a capital S.  luckily for me (but not so much for heather ) i read about how you shouldn’t really eat anything else if you have a stomach ache, so i had a few bites of burger and put it down again, and had some peppermint tea instead.  i am finally feeling better and ready to detox my life!  i bought a bunch of fresh veggies for dinner this week, and am glad to be back home and to my slowly-becoming-normal lifestyle.  i’m looking forward to exercising tonight and wearing my new running skirt that ashley gave me on friday for my birthday!  (do i have the best best friend or what?!)

anyway i know that was a mean ramble, and thanks for anyone who stuck with me the whole time.  i am pretty upset with the way i treated my body this weekend, so hopefully i’ll turn this wagon around this week and get back on track.  now that i’m not worried about fitting in my bridesmaid dress, i can actually focus on more substantial goals, like running that 5k!  hooray!

what do you all do when you’ve fallen off the wagon?  how do you turn yourselves around?
