Seriously there is no telling how many calories I consumed. I'm sure it was well over my weekly allowance. I would not feel so bad about it if I had gotten in my long run Saturday.
I had a 15miler planned for Saturday morning at 6am. I woke up at 5am to eat and check the weather. The weather man said there would be strong thunderstorms moving in around 8am. So I figured I may not get in the 15miles but surely I would have enough time to squeeze in 13. WRONG. At a little before 7am the sky lit up with lightning and the bottom fell out!! The weatherman is a liar....It poured!! I was running with 2 friends and thankfully we weren't too far from my mom's house. We hoofed it there and woke my brother up. I borrowed his car to take my friends home. Bummer. We only got in 4.5 miles.
It cleared up by 10am and turned into a beautiful day, but I didn't have the time to get anymore running in on Saturday or Sunday.
My brother's wedding reception was Saturday afternoon at my house and it was perfect. It was warm and sunny, everyone enjoyed themselves, and the food was amazing!! It wouldn't be a family gathering without too much food and of course my mother's mostaccioli (which I overindulged in). Talk about carb loading! We had enough food to feed a large army!
I'm pretty sure this weekend I gained back the 6lbs. that took me 3 months to lose. And it is probably in the shape of a peep sitting on my muffin tops!
In other news, only 19 days to the Country Music Half Marathon in Nashville!!! I can not wait!!
I just talked to my Aunt who lives up there and secured my place to stay. I waited too late to book a hotel downtown and the only ones left were about $300 a night. Nothing like scoring a free place to stay! SCORE!
Saturday I receive the Stuffitts that I won from Allie at That Girl Is A Running Fool. Today the temp is going to reach 85 and that means my feet will be sweating like crazy! I'm excited to try these out! Thanks Allie!!!
I am SO thankful that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead three days later showing the righteous justification that you and I can now have in Him!!
Hope you all had a blessed Easter!!
