Heck of a week, heck of a week!
Monday: slammed at work, packed Dan up for his trip, heard runner and ARC member got killed while running 😦
Tuesday: weights at the gym in the AM, then Houston trip for work. LONG day. Ran errands on the way home.
Wednesday: ran before work, caught up at work. Sick. Came home to recover.
Thursday: weights before work, all day business meeting (no break for lunch, grrr!), Moonlight Margarita 5K, which benefits Trail Foundation. Sister, AK, and I all went downtown together. Got a black armband to wear to honor Scott Birk. I wasn’t feeling great again, so I ran with sister (I took a DNF because we were bib-timed and our finish was slower than my first 5K ever). She had a really hard time. I don’t think she eats enough and certainly didn’t drink enough liquids before. She was really dehydrated by the first mile.
You have to eat people! Even if you are trying to lose weight, YOU NEED TO FREAKING EAT! Starving yourself is just going to cause more problems. We met AK’s husband for a late dinner at Guerro’s. I’ll keep my observations about eating to myself. But if it comes down to health and safety, I am going to open my big mouth.
Oh and I forgot to mention, my neighborhood was on fire Thursday. I came home a little early from work to check on it. All I will say is, when you actually need information from the news, they are useless. As was the city, who said no exvacuations, but the Austin newspaper said hundreds were being evacuated (which was true, just not my section). They promised the fire crews were staying overnight, so I felt a little better. My house wasn’t directly threatened, but it could have been bad. I think the final count was 60ish acres, no houses.
Friday: long day at work, meetings, team lunch at Gloria’s (their tropical mexican salad with shrimp is GOOD!). Exhausted. Came home, Dan back from Canada. I was so out of it this week, I though he was in Chicago. That is next week.
Dinner was burgers, sweet potato fries, and grilled veggies (I like football-ish food to watch Friday Night Lights)….on the Foreman. It was 105 in the sun. No way in hell was I going to grill outdoors on our patio which is 100% full sun in the PM.
Saturday: Drove to Georgetown and ran a bit on road and trail. Then ran the “No Frill’s 5k”. Wore my black armband again to honor Scott Birk (who died Monday). The turnout was their biggest ever. Even though I was tired and wasn’t feeling great, I had a decent effort, no PR though (which I wasn’t even about to attempt in the heat).
After the race, I drove to Sprouts and got some produce, then on to Weight Watchers, which is down the street. I didn’t get to a meeting this week and felt I needed to. I will say, that if I hear “free fruit is a miracle” one more time, I am going to scream. I always ate fruit and wasn’t afraid of it, not even when it cost me points on the old program. I enjoy fruit and don’t avoid it, never have. I didn’t get fat eating fruit.
Ballgame tonight followed by Jack Ingram Concert. Think some shopping may be called for before that. Dan says he has some work to do. I think I need to work on stimulating the economy of Georgetown 😉
