Friday, I saw Hotel Transylvania with some girlfriends and some good Mexican food. Saturday we hit up the mall, but quickly left because it was so packed you would have thought it was the Saturday before Christmas! It was nice to just be with each other.
BUT, we had a bit of a busy Saturday night. Brandon had a migraine. This isn't new for us, but he had some numbness in his right arm, hand and side of his face. So we headed to the U of M Hospital. I was totally amazed and blown away by how awesome this hospital was. We received top notch care and the facility is state of the art.
I didn't get a long run in yesterday because we got home so late. So I've gotta get that in this week at some point. I also had a scratchy throat when I woke up, but it went away once I got going for the day. However, I woke up today full of congestion and I know it's allergy stuff. I always get it this time of year. I normally wouldn't mind, but there is a certain race that is less than two weeks away that I've got to be in tip top shape for!
I think I'm going to take another nap before class tonight. Trying to get all the rest I can in between working on projects for school and my runs.
I have to confess that the last few weeks have been hard for me weight loss wise. I am set to lose both weeks, but I have realized that my biggest struggle in the year comes right now. All the food that I love most, I eat in the fall and early winter when the holidays roll around and that's hard for me. There are plenty of options that I can do so that it's not over the top, but it has just been hard for me to say no. For the next two weeks, I am taking super good care of myself because of the race, but that should be my mentality year round. It's just so crazy that just about the time you think you've beaten the demon, there is something else to fight.
Hope this finds you well on Monday!
