Hump Day Update

I was going to run last night but blew it off, which was fun - I haven't done that in a while! Instead I made tacos and drank wine. Today I did manage to run almost 4 miles @ an 8:13 pace. It felt good, but not great. I'm just glad I finally got out there again.

I'm planning on doing day one of the 100 push ups thing tonight. I was going to do the test last night but I blew that off too. I'm guessing that I could do 6 pushups, so I'm basically starting from square one. If I find this level too easy I'll just jump ahead.

Also planning to go to yoga tonight....still deciding between bikram and vinyasa. I'm going to do bikram with Alisa and the Gazelle on Saturday so am pumped about that. I hope I don't pass out.

I weighed myself this morning and was happy to see that I didn't gain weight during my taper (or food/alcohol binging over the last few days).

I have not made any progress on the race/training plan for 2009. And yes, it is still stressing me out.

I have tried to make progress in the wedding department by searching for more venues. I did get my J Crew dresses in the mail today too! I tried all three on immediately. They're all cute/pretty but I wasn't wowed by any of them.

Just to keep it interesting, here is a photo of one of my favorite meals of all time - the Chipati. Made by Pizza House in Ann Arbor, MI. It is essentially a really fresh salad inside of a just baked whole wheat pita. Oh, these are sooo damn good, I wish I could have one right now!

Happy Hump Day!

Glad you enjoyed blowing off your run! Enjoy this time as much as you can, I'm sure you'll be balls deep in a new plan before you know it.

I am doing the 100 pushups challenge too.. yikes!

I swear my friend used to work at the Pizza House and I used to get those all the time in the summers. Wow, I want one (and I just finihsed eating my dinner).

Really exciting about the dresses. Do you plan to get married back in MI or in OR or somewhere else? Where's your fiance from? I used to be a wedding planner if you need any help. :)

Ann Arbor is a whore.

I started the 100 push challenge like three times last winter/spring. I got almost all the way through (doing girlie ones) but could never quite make it. I applaud you...esp if you're doing the real kind.

Yay for won't pass out!

Ah, Pizza House!! Love that orange sauce!!

Good luck with the push up challenge. I think I'm giving up after repeating week 4 twice.
