I ventured to downtown this week, I never go downtown. But I had a great reason to go DT.....Someone who was like a second mother to me was in town with her husband for a convention so I went down to have lunch and a nice long chat over coffee. It was a great day but traffic on the way home was HORRIBLE....I don't know how people do this bumper to bumper commute every freaking day!
Pretty view on the way down though.....
|View on way downtown|
|View on way home....took the side roads to avoid some highway traffic|
I am irritated with myself.
Before I went on the restrictive diet in January I was addicted to the gym (or running outside weather depending) Always 6 days a week. If I didn't get my runs in look out I was a bitch.
My knee was injured training for a fitness test for the tactical team last year and it re occurs but I usually ignore for the most part. So being on the restrictive diet gave me a chance to rest my knee. I went on maintenance and hit the gym. I am only at about 2-3 runs a week and I am pissed at myself! What is wrong with me! I can't get my head back into it.
I go on vacation in a couple days so that is my number one goal to get back to at least 5 days a week by the end of the month. ugh....Can't believe this is even an issue that I have to be thinking about. For years its just been second nature. I have a physical re cert that I need to get at least a 9 on the beep test and a half marathon coming up in May......
On a side note...I saw these a few days ago at the grocery store....I just walked by.....
Then R was at the store yesterday and called me to ask a question. I, out of a moment of pure weakness, said "do you see that display next to the self check out?" "Get me a box!"
