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.
