I'm still not running. My foot is still bothering me. It felt much better over the weekend & today. Hopefully, we're nearing the end of this bout of tendonitis. I'm all signed up to run a St. Patrick's Day race Sunday. It's 3.17 mi. Cute huh? My friends Allison & Karen are running too so it should be fun. I even bought a cute shirt to wear.
Lent - I gave up treats. Cookies, candy, cake, donuts, etc. I've done surprisingly well. Granted it's only been 5 days. I'm hoping that this will also help me not crave sweets. Life would just be easier that way.
Diet - After losing the weight I lost a few years ago about 8 lbs. have crept back. Some of it I think is muscle but I don't know how much so I'd like to lose about 5 lbs.. More importantly, I'd like to tone up. Even though I'm not running at the moment I've still been working out. I've been doing more weights than I ever have. We have a beach trip planned for May with my brother, sis-in-law & Logan so I'm hoping I'll see a difference by then.
Friday night Dean & I went to the LSU baseball game. It was cold. I lasted 4 innings & then I went to the truck & read for a few innings until Dean was ready to go. I always carry my Nook with me!
Saturday we went to Sam's. We go early before it's crazy. Saturday, crazy came early. We were loading our car at 9:00 & I heard a voice say "I'm twerking for gas". I looked up to see a woman twerking in the parking lot. If you don't know what twerking it is, google it along with the words "Miley Cyrus". You won't be impressed. Trust me. I have no idea who she was talking to because there was nobody anywhere near her. I was having a hard time not staring but I also didn't want to make eye contact.
Dean worked in the yard & got a lot of things cut back so hopefully the cold weather is on its way out & everything will start to get pretty again. While he worked outside I did laundry, worked out & caught up on reality TV. We went to Mass & then to Caliente for an early dinner before the LSU game. There wasn't any wind & it felt 30 degrees warmer than Friday night when it was really only 10 degrees warmer.
After the game we stopped at a neighbor's & hung out for a bit. We haven't gotten together with everyone in awhile so it was fun.
Sunday - I did our grocery shopping for the week & my friend Allison came over. We'd been saying that we wanted to try a new juice bar in town - The Big Squeezy. Cute name right? They were giving out samples at the Louisiana Marathon & I liked it. They have smoothies, juice & almond milk on the menu. We tried a few juices. We decided that we do not like juice with celery in it. I like celery, Allison hates celery. In juice, it's just too strong of a flavor. We ended up with fresh made smoothies.
I skipped the game yesterday. I stayed home & worked out, read & watched the Kardashians. I used to watch it all the time & then got tired of it but for some reason it's reeled me back in. I just love seeing what they're wearing, what their makeup looks like & seeing the houses. I've said before that I'm very interested in how rich people live. I don't know why but I figure there are worse things.
Once Dean got home from the game he grilled & I sat outside & had a glass of wine.
How was y'alls weekend?
