Today....

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

I didn't know what else to call today...but today....so there it is.

Today started with a physical. I dread these - especially the "girlie" part of the exam....so I was pleasantly surprised when my doc told me I didn't need to have the "girlie" part until January of 2013....WHOO HOO!!!!

I was also very excited that I weighed exactly the same as last January....I know I am trying to loose, but after the last couple of months of falling off of the wagon and knowing that the scale had tipped up so much, I am happy to be back where I was in January 2010....now to keep shrinking. The BP was fantastic...102/68, and my resting pusle was 48, which on the chart I found is low for an 18 year old....Yeah Happy Heart!!!!

The exam went well, until they had me schedule my very first Mammogram, after my 40th birthday - but have to stay healthy and that's the best way to test for things...so I'll be going in September....

Came home to 2 couch potatoes.....who then took off moving and shaking for the day - 12 yr. old to a friend, and 9 yr. old in the hood on a small inflatable water slide.

Off to baseball next, and I met the family at the field and got in a 4.1 mile run. This is where the 900 calories from yesterday found me....I just didn't have it - between just feeling off and the 85' weather it was a long run. I took a giant walk break (5 minutes) in the middle, and it was on a hill (I NEVER walk a hill no matter what) - but I just couldn't deal with this one - and the whole time I walked it was uphill. I still managed to do the 4.1 in 44 minutes....so with that giant walk break I'm pretty psyched.

Dinner was ham and mac-n-cheese and a BIG salad and green beans...>YUMMO.

Now here I am - going to bed a little later than planned, but I hadn't got my spark on much today and I was feeling as if I neglected my friends....boy have you all been busy today - I did the best I could catching up - but don't think I got it all.

Good night.

    Congrats on the Dr. Appt and YAY for doing that run even though you didn't "feel it"! That speaks volumes about your commitment. You're doing just fine - Keep up the good work!
