This morning was really foggy outside.
My legs and lungs felt awesome throughout the whole run. I didn't look at my Garmin at all, just ran how I felt comfortable. I actually thought about running farther than my training plan said, that's how good I felt! But I called it quits at four miles.
|Phoebe and Estelle--my legs were numb when I got up|
That was irritating. I knew I'd be starving if we waited until after the movie to eat lunch. The next show was at 2:30, so we ultimately decided to go to Applebee's for lunch, then kill some time at the mall, and then see the show.
I ordered the jalapeno-lime shrimp (a Weight Watchers item on the menu, for 8 PointsPlus). I was skeptical, but it ended up being really good! Much better than the parmesan chicken I got last time (also a WW item).
After we finished lunch, we went back to the mall to browse around for a while. We went into Target because the kids needed new sheets for their beds, and while we were there, I found my FAVORITE holiday candy!
They are basically just a candy cane sucker with a tootsie roll in the center. They only have 60 calories, and they last a while, which is another reason why I love them.
Looking at all the candy and junk food at Target made Jerry and I say to each other simultaneously, "Don't you wish we were still fat sometimes?" BAHAHA, that is the only thing I miss about being 253 pounds. Buying lots of junk and eating it with abandon, without worrying about gaining a few pounds. They had candy cane OREOS--Jerry and I were both drooling over those, but knew that if we bought them, we'd have no control. I did buy
By the time we were done at Target, we still had 40 minutes until the movie started. The kids said they didn't even want to go see it anymore, so we just came home. I feel like I disappointed them again--since we missed out on the race yesterday morning, and then the movies today. But maybe we'll try and go next weekend.
Jerry and I spent some time in the evening going through tweets on Twitter about The Walking Dead. There are some really funny pictures on there! I love reading what people's thoughts are about the show, and it had me cracking up. Jerry had an idea for one that he asked me to make in Photoshop... a prediction of who would be on the phone that Rick answered at the end of the last episode...
Hahaha, if you don't watch The Walking Dead, then please ignore that ;)
I want to give a huge congrats to my Ragnar teammate Lealah--she finished her very first full marathon today!! And Rik, our Ragnar captain, actually went down to Oklahoma to run it alongside her, just like he did with me in Detroit three weeks ago (seriously, could we have a more awesome captain?). I'm super proud of Lealah! Their unofficial finish time is 5:27:40. Congrats Lealah!
