What does Wednesday mean??? My dreaded date with the scale. Last week I saw a 1.4 pound increase. BOOO! Well, this week I lost that 1.4 pounds again along with an additional .6 more. That's right, 2 whole pounds.
My calf is still freaking killing me and I want to go run sooo bad but when I try I think I'd rather hack my leg off with a dull butter knife. So wait it out it is. I've been icing, stretching, and using an ace bandage. Which by the way, I had to buy another one. What the frick man? I own about 12 billion of them yet I can't find any of them. Someone this clumsy has a surplus of ace bandages....trust me.
Onto the weekend! It was pretty fantabulous. I got my "me" day on Saturday (Thanks Granny, you're the bees knees!) and took advantage of it. I started off with an extra long, extra scalding hot shower. Then I went to this place:
Aren't they amazing! It was a choice between those and a pair of Brooks.
Talk about the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I'm in love.
Then I went home to relax a bit more, drank some coffee, watched some TV, was an all around bum. I wanted to run but the (incredibly short) run from testing my shoes already had me wishing that I didn't have a leg. So yes, I was icing my leg while watching TV and drinking coffee.
Once my leg felt better, I ran to target to pick up a new sports bra, a light weight jacket (it's starting to get chilly) and a new pair of pants to run in. Then back home for a nap. Yup, that's right, this momma got a nap. As in, by myself, no feet kicking me in the ribs, little hands smacking my face, none of that. A 1.5 hour, all by myself nap in the middle of the day on a Saturday. It was heavenly.
Then I woke up and went to here:
Sorry, forgot to get a picture there, so their website provided me with their logo!
They have lots of nifty stuff there for sale in their "boutique" in addition to offering other spa services. I was just there for my hair though. Maybe a massage will be in my future. ;)
I went from this:
Yay shorter hair! Then Saturday night, one of the besties and I went to the bar for celebratory drinks because she got hired from her externship! Woohoo!! And no, we didn't get shit-hammered, take pictures of ourselves puking in the toilet while flicking off the camera drunk. Just a couple of drinks.
Then I lost at giant Jenga:
It's the first time she beat me and she got it on camera. But it's ok, I got a good one of her last time we went out. Right after she asked if it (the jenga game) was getting taller mind you. I told her no, that she was just shrinking. I still haven't let her live that down.
I promise she doesn't really have a giant black hole for a face
Sunday was a relaxing day at home with H. Nothing really happened. Here she is playing dress-up:
I promise her room wasn't that messy before she started playing.
Now to go catch up on the 18 billion blog posts that I've missed.
