Good afternoon! How was your week? Mine has been pretty awesome. I intended to check back in her before now but my time was better spent on movement! I get a bit in this week and I’m proud.
Let’s start with last weekend first, shall we?
Saturday was spent all day doing things Kevin wanted (mostly). It was his birthday Friday so we just spent the day together relaxing and enjoying our time. We started the day with a walk.
It wasn’t a long one because I am having terrible shin splints (I’m told time will help??) and I’m breaking my knee back into the idea of movement.
After that, we came home and got ready for the day. We first had to go for a hair appointment (me!) and then we could start having fun! We headed to an RV lot that we have been dying to visit. We both pass it at least twice per day on our commute. Well, let me just say our visit was less than stellar. We were there probably 10 minutes and no less than 3 people came out of offices, saw us, and turned back around. Needless to say, we won’t be back. We had gotten a late start because I had a hair appointment so after that, I was starving! Kevin picked Teds Montana Grill for lunch. No arguments here. I freakin love that place! We both had burgers. I had pre-calculated in My Fitness Pal what I was going to have and was fairly certain I would eat all of my calories in that one meal. That was fine with me because it was a BIG meal. And SO worth it!
I ended up eating only 1/2 of the burger, an onion ring and 2 or 3 fries. I was a bit disappointed because I did NOT want to stop eating but I was stuffed!
After that, we went to a guitar store for Kev to fiddle around with some amps and I sat in the car and read. It was such a beautiful day with the windows down. I could have sat there all day! We then went to another RV lot which is the one I’m sure we will get our RV from when the time is right. Before the night was over, we took in a move. 15:17 to Paris is really good. The acting is sub par, but it is the original guys who saved the train playing themselves so that is understandable. The story, however, takes you back to their childhood and how then wound up then and there. Really powerful and will make you think. If you see it, let me know what you think!
Sunday, we bought tickets for a Family Foodie Fare presented by the Jax Moms. It was so stinking much fun! We ate and ate and ate.
At the end of the day, Kevin won a coffee basket. How fitting, yes?
After going to see another movie (Den of Thieves… SO GOOD) we came home and crashed. Hard! it was such a busy, wonderful weekend!
During the week, I’ve been trying to acclimate myself to my new FWTFL plan. Of course as soon as my brain heard “don’t eat till noon” it wanted food as soon as my feet hit the floor every morning! Crazy times! I have gotten in a good amount of movement this week.
Well, when I say “good amount” do I mean twice? I certainly FEEL like it was more than that but these are the only screen shots I have! Poo! This is sure to change. This is going to be a daily thing for me. I have a 5k tomorrow and I’m pretty sure I’m going to get a DNF. Shin splints are still killing me. I did read today to do some heel raises (is that what they are called? Standing on your toes on a step and lifting up?) anyway, those and shortening my stride. I’m going to implement both of these today and see what happens. I will report back here Monday morning with a recap of my weekend and how the race goes!
Do you have a race this weekend?
Any advise for shin splints?
