Last night was a rough night. I started feeling extremely tired at work and then the migraine symptoms started... spotted vision, things sounding weird, looking weird, extreme exhaustion, etc.
It was a good thing Wyatt's game was cancelled because I needed to just do nothing. I asked Dale if he could handle dinner. No problem. I laid down on the couch and was out. I'm thankful it didn't turn into a full blown migraine. I haven't had issues with that in a really long time. I'm not really sure what's up but I need to get this out of my system. I got up to eat and go to bed and that was about it. I did throw some laundry in the washer and actually got a load completed even dried and folded AND put away with very little fuss. Dale took care of dinner, baths, and the clean up. So thankful for having such a great husband.
I feel better today but still a little on the tired side. I really need to fuel up for Saturday! I'm excited and I'm ready to just run it. No pressure about time. I want to push my limits a little but not too early. I want to go with the flow as much as possible. I might even turn the sound on my app off of and only look when I feel like I need to. We'll see how it goes.
I did my last run on Monday. It was around 12 miles with an 8:20 pace in the rain. I did have to take a break at mile 5 because of the storm and lightning that was getting too close, but at the end of my 12 I still felt like I could keep going. I have no worries of surviving Saturday. I'm totally in this to run off of how I feel. Of course I want a good time, but I'm not breaking any records or anything. I'm totally in this for the experience. No negative thoughts. Nothing but self love and praise!
This is my friend/might as well be sister Lyndsey. Can you believe that is her natural eye color? Beautiful! I love this picture of her. She married one of my husband's best friends from college and we've been in each other's lives ever since. They came to support me for the show and I had Wyatt's bday party kind of short notice to make sure they would be here for it.
My brother, my soon to be sister-in-law, T, Stacyyyyyy
Billy is up next on that WBFF stage. LOL! He'd never!
I whined because I didn't have shades and they thought this was a good solution.
Siblings... there when you need them.
Totally related and totally all squint our noses the same when we are cracking up apparently.
We don't feel like we get enough pictures together.
This is about all I have of party pics. My dad was playing photographer. These 2 are the only ones I have with my good camera. And, of course Wyatt's face would be hidden!
Found these on my phone...
I threw this one in there because I forgot I took these early this spring. It was cold but they wouldn't stop playing in the muddy water.
Wyatt's field day - blast!
The girls beat them twice.
This one... well, that's my son and his "friend" Kyra. He's talked about her since the beginning of school and they will be having an ice cream "date" this Friday for his birthday. I haven't told him yet.
I'm excited about this summer. I'm excited about not having an official plans or goals until the end of August as far as running and lifting goes. I haven't worked out at all this week and I miss it bad. Hopefully I can work it out to go to the gym with Dale during the week and run in between. Who knows, I might get up early for a few early morning runs just because I miss it.
I want to get stronger though. I want more muscle bulk, like 5 to 7 pounds. I don't want to get ripped and I know this will be hard with running so much, but I want more mass. So, I'm thinking about things like that and how to get there. I'm also thinking that next week I will get something moving around a Saturday morning get together with a bunch of people who want to get in shape and learn some things. I'm no expert but I'm here to help where I can.
I'm excited to hang out with super heroes in little clothes who steal my high heels.
I'm excited about good times with good friends.
I'm excited about what this summer and next year will bring after I come down off the high of living so fully so far this year. Who knows what all there is to come, but it's exciting!
