Not feeling creative with the title for today's post!
What can I say, I stepped on the scale this morning and the number was not pretty! It's not my normal weigh in day but no one wants to see a number 5 pounds above the last one! Ouch!
I haven't been tracking AT ALL. I haven't even been trying to track. I'm in one of those "I don't care" moods. Needless to say, Halloween Candy has not been helping in the least! So, goal for today is NO HALLOWEEN CANDY (even though it was just refilled by evil office coworkers!).
I was determined to make this week better than last week. My mood a few days last week was grumpy! This week, I vowed to have a happy week regardless of issues at work/home, etc.
And it worked! The power of positive thinking! Now to get my eating under control. Also, I haven't been able to work out nearly as much as usual. No wonder the scale wasn't happy. So this morning, I got up early, rode the stationary bike in my living room for 25 mins, did another 5 mins of weights and then got on with my day. I'm going to try to do that a few extra times next week too since I think I won't have enough time with a certain friend coming into town from Nebraska this weekend and not leaving until Thursday!
I got my hair cut yesterday. It's still the same cut, short on an angle. I trimmed up my bangs. I almost think they are a teeny tiny bit too short but they grow so fast that it shouldn't matter.
I have the Hot Chocolate 15k this weekend (Saturday). Oh my goodness, it's going to be cold out there. SOOOO not looking forward to that! But I'm going to do my best.
Here are my goals for the run. I would like to, at a minimum, finish under 1 hour 40 mins. And to make me really happy, I would like to finish at about 1.35. I've never run just a 15k before so I'm not exactly sure what my time will be. If it's as cold as I think it is, I may be running faster just to finish as quickly as possible! Brrrrrr!!!!! Cold running is not my thing!
And, uh...lastly...my new friend from Nebraska is coming into town this weekend. Yes, Matt, the one that I have endless conversations on the phone with for the last two weeks. Whoa, can't believe this day is finally here! I'm really excited! I mean...really excited! But I'll be really nervous by about 3 pm today. I'm heading over to meet him at my cousin's house tonight around 7 pm. He should be getting there around 6 pm.
He told me he is bringing me a surprise. A gift that should make me laugh. Now why do people go and tell you they have a surprise! Kind of defeats the purpose of a surprise, doesn't it?? Uh! And it just makes me want to know what the heck it is! I was talking to him yesterday and he said he "got my surprise and was putting it together." What??? So curious! lol
Oh and lastly, had a date again with the first guy Ken the other day. I hadn't been out with him since I had started talking to Matt, so I really wanted to see what I thought about being out with Ken again. We went bowling and to eat. It was fine. I really love bowling! But yeah, no sparks with Ken at all. I kept looking at him and thinking..."Well? Maybe?? Anything??" But no, can't really find anything there. And I kept thinking about Matt the whole time too. That's never good when you are on a date with someone! And I always want the date to end early. So I think it may be time to cut Ken loose. And not because of Matt, just because of my lack of feelings for Ken.
So that's the details so far of my personal dating life. Definitely will be more to tell after this weekend! I'm seeing Matt for a few hours tonight, then tomorrow at the HUGE family party. I am spending the night at my cousins....which was planned LONG BEFORE Matt was coming and spending the night at my cousins (that was such a set up!). And my cousin, Matt and I will all be spending the day on Sunday together. If things are going well, I'll be taking off of work on Tuesday to hang out with Matt more before he has to leave on Thursday. If things don't go well, I'll be working that day! lol
I won't be posting until next week, maybe Monday. I hope you all have a great weekend! If you have anything exciting planned, please share!
