Friday Five – Post-vaycay, running and better eating

Five Things:

  1. I’m not feeling sad about being back from vacation anymore. I have moved into the phase of just being thankful I got one and renewed in my motivation to plug away at daily living. But I am a bit sad that we don’t have another actual paid vacation until the end of May!
  2. I’m dying for a quick beach trip but looking at the next three weekends at least, we’re busy each and every one.  We have races and practice and my brother-in-law is scheduled to come next weekend, though he’s been having headache issues and unsure at this point. Even still, no time!
  3. My across the street neighbor died a couple nights ago, apparently from cancer. She was pretty old and when we got back from NY, she had a lot of people in and out of her home. I feel kind of bad because I would normally send flowers or something but I don’t know who I would send them to. Her son is mentally challenged and lives… somewhere in town. And I found out she has a sister here but I don’t know where she is either. Ugh. It’s a dilemma.
  4. I wasn’t going to run yesterday but I ended up doing sprints. Man, those will wear you out! But I am feeling particularly fat this week – just in my stomach – so I had to do something. I’m also planning to do a four miler on Saturday. I’ve got to get back to good eating and longer runs.
  5. We’re going to Carrabba’s for lunch and I am craving their spicy chicken soup and their lettuce wraps. It sounds so good right now!

OK the fifth photo won’t post and WordPress is being weird. See you next week!


One thought on “Friday Five – Post-vaycay, running and better eating

  1. It’s sad when some dies and we don’t know the family well enough to be able to send flowers or a sympathy card my sister’s patners mother died last week and her funeral is on Monday I will be going because she was a lovely old lady
