Good: Went to Olive Garden for lunch and ate more salad than fettucine Alfredo. Brought the other 1/2 of the portion home for lunch tomorrow (NOT easy for me to do!)
Not so much: REALLY want to eat that portion now. It's 10:00p.m.
Good: Did the Couch to 5K workout tonight as planned. Didn't bail.
Not so much: Couldn't take the dogs for their usual walk after the run. Why? Wait for it...
Good: Bailey had her last mange treatment today and was pronounced cured...BUT...
Not so much: Discovered when we got home that Bailey is in heat again. WTF?? It's only been 4 months!!
Good: We have a local low-cost spay/neuter clinic that will do the operation.
Not so much: Usual cost is $75 but will be $10 extra because she's in heat. Still better than having puppies we can't afford, though.
Good (?): Trying to get her an appointment for next week.
Not so much: Dog walks will be limited until this is taken care of. Too many loose male dogs in the neighborhood.
Good: Spoke with my Marine to make sure he was still available for the team duathlon (17 DAYS!!!!) and we're still on.
Not so much: He is being deployed on January 1. I know it's what he wants, but it's still scary.
Good: Found a duathlon scheduled for Oct. 2nd and my Marine said he's very interested in teaming up with me again.
Not so much: I was thinking I might do this one on my own, but it's a 5K/15/5K and I'm not sure I'll be at that level by then. So...I'm excited Marine Mark will be racing with me; I hope to one day be able to do one of these on my own.
Two thoughts fighting for dominance in my head tonight.
- How on EARTH do people run miles and miles? I can't even run ONE!
- Well, they had to start somewhere. KEEP GOING!!!
- Be more consistent - Bike, run, and core training
- Stop coming up with excuses NOT to do the above
It's amazing how my own head gets in my way sometimes.
