So after yesterday's reflective-ness, I'm feeling like today is really a great day.
Last night, after I got a bit sad, Matt and I decided to head to the Winking Lizard and I'm proud to say I had a nice healthy dinner BEFORE I went.
I'm not proud to say I had a tasty Hoegarten beer....but I will say I did drink it with a LOT of water and didn't finish all of the 22 ouncer.
Then I'm definitely not proud to say we went to Mitchell's (DOH) and got a sundae.
But I AM proud to say I only ate about a third and am saving the rest for tomorrow to celebrate my kick a$$ race.
I am getting a little bit nervous--haven't raced a short distance hard in a LOOOONG time. But I know that the numbers say I'll be fine, and I know that I am the strongest I've been in a long time fitness-wise. So I'm trying just to focus on that when I get the butterflies.
Today I slept in until 8:30!!! (NOTE: 8:30, several years ago, was EARLY for me. That was when I was lazy TriSaraTops) Then I got up, had a nice bowl of Optimum Zen with blueberries (my new morning crack) and I'm drinking a nice cuppa joe. The Pug Man is asleep on my lap and snoring. (no joke) He snores quite loud and it's so darn cute.
Today I'm going to do some chores around the house, and then head to get a massage--yay! After that I'm going to do just a little yoga--probably a half hour or so--to clear my head and stretch a bit. Tonight for dinner my inner Italian goes berzerk as we enjoy a pasta marinara meal for Good Friday. Then we'll probably watch a movie tonight and I'll try to get some good sleep for tomorrow's race. The weather should be OK--not too hot, which for me is VITAL, but maybe a little rain. No biggie.
Very excited for all the Boston-bound bloggers out there! Good luck to Okolo, Elizabeth, and Kim! You guys will have an amazing time and I can't wait to hear the reports! :)
