When I finally got there, it was nice and relaxing. My mom started my laundry for me (I get spoiled with laundry services when I go home...and since I don't have a washer/dryer in my new place), and we just got to catch up
I'm glad they found a replacement for Abby and Lilah (Delilah's nickname) is perfect! She's also a shepherd cross and just so curious about everything. So naturally, I had to take some pics with my new "girlfriend"... Don't mind my gross face/hair--I had been in a hot car all day (windows down most of the time til it got WAY too hot.
|Isn't Lilah gorgeous?! She loves me!!|
Now for my next confession: I was so BAD at the cookout! Ate completely off plan! It was so bad that I wasn't even gonna fess up to Pleasants. But I did. He doesn't know how bad the damage was, and I'm too ashamed to say, even on here, but it is out of my system. All I will say is that last weekend I was good, though I probably under-ate on my carb load day
So why did I crumble? Well, it was a cookout--it was the nature of the event that got me started.

Aren't we so pretty?!?!
This just leaves me nervous. I've been trying to make up for the cookout the past day and a half by further cutting my carb intake, hoping things will balance. I missed my second cardio session yesterday since by the time I was back in C'ville (yeah, traffic blew on the way back--TERRIBLE), Gold's was closed. They closed at 2 for the holiday, I didn't get back til around 3:30. It was too unbearably hot to go outside when it wasn't 100% necessary. Yes, it was 100% necessary for me to do cardio, but I would rather not get heat stroke or anything.
I did, however, have an amazing run along the beach in Sandbridge yesterday morning, at the crack of dawn. Literally. I got up at
After running down and back along the coast--which wasn't easy, let me tell you!--I took to the streets. The beach run was great, don't get me wrong, and my glutes felt it the entire way (sloping, soft sand makes for a tough run!), but I wasn't at my 30 minute mark and I wanted a bit of hard, level asphalt for a bit. The transition was funny. My body didn't like it. It would have preferred to stay on the beach :)
The rest of my "holiday" was spent driving/getting the left side of my body sunburned. Oh, and of course I realized when I was halfway back to Charlottesville that I left all the new workout clothes I had bought from the Nike and Under Armour outlets back at my mom's place! Now that I'm back, I'm more determined than ever to make sure I don't fall off the wagon (or any sort of wagon) again! Gym this morning was calves, abs, and 30 minutes of increasing speed on the treadmill (starting at 7.2, increasing to 9.0). And of course I'll return in a couple of hours for lifting and more cardio :) All I'm saying is I better be down to what I was when I weighed in Sunday or I'll be very angry with myself!! And I'm sure Pleasants won't be too pleased either.
