I have been knocked completely off course.
My kids leave in just over a week to spend the rest of the summer with their father and I'm a wreck. Our favorite summer activities center around the boat, which is still in the shop, and I feel like when my sons leave my summer is over. I'm panicking . . . trying to have fun, family time before they go.
My sons have always wanted to be awesome BBQ'ers. Yesterday we smoked ribs all day (which had marinated in a dry rub overnight) and had a fun BBQ before Nick went to work. We prepped a brisket last night and put it on at 6:30 am. We will have another BBQ this afternoon. Hopefully tomorrow we'll float the river.
I would love to pack up and leave town but I Nick couldn't get the time off work because he didn't give enough notice. I'd like to go down to the theater and give them a piece of my mind, but he loves his job and they have agreed to hold it for him so he'll have a job in the fall. I will hold my tongue and temper.
I'm discouraged with my weight loss and I'm seriously going to re-evaluate my workout goal for next week. If I miss one day, which I think everybody needs a day-of-rest, I am okay. If I miss 2, it means working out over 3 hours a day to make up for it. It's overwhelming.
On the upside, I ran the other day. 4.3 miles!! I couldn't believe I went that far. I just zoned out on my stride and the stretch of road directly in front of me. My dog ran with me. It was nice.
I'm in the last days of TOM so I'm hoping I feel better tomorrow.
Congratulations to everybody that's on track. Shay - this means you, too!! Achieving your water goal is still achieving a goal!!
Take care. I'll check back later!!
