Today was really a long day. Last night my daughter Gracie decided she didn't want to go to bed and was just really giving us a hard time. By 2am she was finally asleep but I was wound up and couldn't fall a sleep until about 4am and was back up at 7am to head off to work. I was tired and sluggish all day and realized by 5pm I only had about 350 calories all day! OUCH! So, I called Ashli and met her and Gracie out at Ruby Tuesdays and I pigged out on their salad bar and a turkey burger! YUM! That will help fuel my run tonight!:)
So far this week I've only done one strength session and that was on Monday. I just want to make sure my shoulder is 100% before I hit the weights hard again. I'm actually bummed out because I really do enjoy lifting but I also don't want to be fighting this shoulder come November. This morning I weighed in at 197 so another pound down which brings my July weight loss to 7 pounds.
Here are my runs from last night and tonight:
Run: 3 Miles
Run: 3 Miles
Wednesday's run was great, very enjoyable run. Tonight's run was really no fun. I guess going on three hours sleep and my nutrition all screwed up played a big part in that. Just couldn't find a good pace and felt like I was all over the place. Although if you look at my times they are pretty consistent but tonight's run was no fun even if it was only three miles. Tomorrow was going to be a make up strength session but I may skip the strength workouts until next week just to give my shoulder the extra time. I've been wearing my weight belt on my runs to help support my back issue and that has helped out. Saturday will be my day of rest and Sunday brings a 7 mile long run.
Last night Ashli and I completed the application to enroll Gracie in to Southside Christian Schools K4 program this fall. Man, I can't believe how time flies. This was a very detailed application process which totaled about 12 pages of stuff to fill out, I'm surprised they didn't ask for a blood sample.:) This will be a part time K4 program three days a week from 8:30am to 12:30 pm. She will have a blast and she seems to be very positive about it. I'm glad that Ashli has been able to be a stay at home mom with her not that I'm against day cares because they provide a great service but it was just the right thing for us. I think Ashli is already talking about finishing school and getting back to work. Being a stay at home mom is a very hard job and Ashli has just done an amazing job with Gracie...love ya hon!
Well, tomorrow I'm taking a day off from work, nothing fun just going to get some things done around the house and hang out with my beautiful wife and daughter. Hope everyone has a great Friday! - Jason
