I went to Party City this afternoon to get a couple of things for Nathan's race. Before I left the house, Jerry not-so-subtly hinted that he saw an ad that Victoria's Secret had a sale--7 panties for $26.50--so I may want to pick some up while I was out that way ;) I do like VS panties, so I ended up going there to take advantage of the sale.
It's kind of funny--I had exactly two things that I needed to get while I was out today (I went out specifically for them) and when I got home, I'd forgotten both! It will have to wait until Wednesday.
The kids went to my parents' house for a little while this evening, and Jerry and I were on our own for dinner. I didn't really want to cook for just the two of us, and when I learned that today was the last day that our local ice cream shop would be open for the season, I thought a flurry sounded good for dinner ;) So we each got a small flurry (16 PointsPlus), and that was actually really filling. (I know that eating a flurry for dinner is not exactly healthy, but I only do that once or twice a year!)
Today was a rest day, so I didn't have to run. After "dinner", though, I was really cold and had only gotten in 3,000 steps for the whole day, so I decided to go for a short three-miler. I'm supposed to run three tomorrow, but I'm not sure I'll be able to, so it didn't hurt to get it done today. I was feeling pretty energetic, and it felt good to get out and run.
I very rarely run in the evenings, but every time that I do, I tell myself that I should do it more often. It's SO nice to run as the sun is going down. I think my problem is that if I didn't do it in the morning, it would haunt me all day that I need to get in a run. I felt really good, and even had negative splits.

I sat on the porch until the mosquitos started getting to me, then headed in to get my laundry done. My flight is at 10:00 tomorrow morning, and I haven't even started packing yet! It's a super short trip (I'll be home Tuesday night), but I want to pack some running clothes. I'll have a few hours tomorrow afternoon to do whatever I'd like, and I'll just be a couple of miles from Central Park, so I think I may get brave enough to venture over there and go for a run. I'm so bad with directions that it makes me nervous to even think about, but I'll bring my clothes just in case.
I wrote the Motivational Monday post today, and it's set to go live tomorrow night. If you have something to share, and I didn't get to it, then I will save it for next week. I probably won't be writing a post on Tuesday, because I won't get home until late, but I will on Wednesday. Well, I'd better get packing. I'm excited to go to NY tomorrow!
