No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Ahhh, Homecoming. It makes me nostalgic. I remember my Senior year and being on the Homecoming Court. It was the first thing I did in high school that actually made my parents excited. Not the straight As, or taking all AP classes, or any of my band concerts, or being the lead in the play, or winning with my team in the firefighting competitions. But that was okay. :) As the teacher in charge of the Homecoming candidates and all of the itinerant festivities therein, I had a busy week this week, particularly yesterday. Everything went smoothly though. The parade was nice, the halftime show, where all of the candidates are presented, went well, and the king and queen and their court were crowned. I like to put on a good show! :)
This morning, I woke up around 8am, went on my run, and now I'm about to get ready to go grocery shopping, then I have to tackle the giant mound (and I DO mean giant) of grading. I have 100 or so tests to grade, 150 essays to grade, and some smaller assignments too. Plus grades are due for the first term on Monday so I have to get those ready. It will be a busy weekend!
I ran 3 miles today!!! All in 36 minutes. (That includes my warm up and cool down--once I am able to run at least 30 minutes straight, I want to cut out my warm up and cool down from the calculations to see what I can do). Without my walking before and after, I run between 10:20 and 11:00 per mile. With the walking, it's around 12:20. AND hubby came with me. I am really excited he did while at the same time being a little dismayed that he hasn't trained like I have yet he could keep up with me.
I am especially excited that he went out with me because he went in for his regular checkup at the doctor this week and found out he is borderline diabetic and borderline high-cholesterol. It really worried me. I am freaked out a little bit because he's gained quite a bit of weight since starting his new job, and he's gone all the time. I don't want to lose him!! His want to come out with me and to exercise is a good thing. He's even switched to diet soda--which isn't perfect, but considering he used to get the Big Gulp size of soda on a regular basis, it's a step in the right direction. :)
Here's the meal plan for today:
B: Considering it's already almost 10 am, I'm going to make some scrambled eggs and toast for breakfast.
L: I'm having leftovers from the Mexican restaurant yesterday and hubby is going to grill some chicken for himself
D: southwest sloppy joes and homemade apple sauce
