I have not been gone for a whole week yet but I am scaring it to death. I think the last time I was on was Wednesday, please accept my apology. I had a week that was packed full of work, workouts and so much more. I wish I could tell you everything I did but I'm not sure I can remember it all.
I had to work at the office 2 days in a row which is abnormal for me. I usually have one full day at the office and then when I need to be there the rest of the week. But this week I picked up an extra shift at the gym so it was crazy all the way around. Then one night last week I went on a date and another out with my sisters to celebrate a birthday so I was home around midnight and very much ready to go to bed. See I told you I was crazy!!!!!
Thursday night I hung with my sisters at Sonic. We can rock out some late night Sonic visits. (Thats where we film our amazing commercials!) The girls will go at least once a day for the best diet coke with ice in the entire county. And they let us sit there for hours without making us feel like we are bothering them. Good times. But I think I partied to hard on Thursday because when I woke up on Friday morning I could not get going. I was awake at 5:30 wandering around my house trying to wake up. I tried a cup of coffee, some breakfast, nothing was working. I actually drifted off to sleep sitting on the couch. I finally gave up and went back to bed. I had kept up to all my workouts and knew I could make it up.
So on Saturday I woke up early to go out for a run with my girls to make up for my absence. I didn't have long because I was going on a canoe trip. It was one of the best runs I have had in a while. It was more running than walking, which is more than I can say for my last 2 weeks, and I wasn't hurting anywhere so no complaints. A little hotter than I would have cared for but it didn't effect me like it does some days. I was very pleased with my run on Saturday morning.
The rest of the day was action packed and full of calorie burning. I went to canoe the river after the run. I love to canoe more than just about anything which is kind of amazing since I'm not really an outdoor kinda person. I like to run outside on concrete, not trails, and I don't want to sleep outside or anything like that. I also like to row by myself so that I get a good workout. My canoe was a little bit heavy so it was harder to row than normal and I started off the trip with two sulled up teenagers but once everyone got in a good mood it was a good time. Then I got home and had to mow the lawn...again!!!!!!!! I swear my neighbors are fertilizing my yard when I go off to work. It needs mowing about every 3 days. New rule...no more rain!!!!
So now I am going to go to bed and vow to be better with my blogging next week. Right now it seems to be a little more tame than this past week but you never know in the Real Estate business. I hope the dam breaks and everyone in this town want to buy a house. I would gladly take the busy over then nothing.
Wish me luck with the run tomorrow! Hopefully another good one!!!!
