I'm feeling good this morning, because I put on a pair of previously tight jeans, & they fit perfectly. Best Monday morning moment of today. Please excuse the rest of the way I look. I had a conference call at 7:00 am, so this is the best I could do.

Today is my rest day, and I'm very happy about that. My legs need it after my 12 mile run yesterday. I'm actually feeling okay, but the stairs are killer. My 1/2 marathon is in mid-July, but now I'm thinking I should sign up for one in June. I feel ready. Any suggestions?
Yesterday was a good eating day. I went slightly over my normal calories in the evening - I was starving & couldn't go to bed without something else to eat. A little short on fruit, but otherwise, a fairly balanced day.
Breakfast - coffee, strawberries & blueberries, sauteed spinach and egg on a bagel thin with feta
Snack (right after my run) - trail mix with dried fruit & nuts
Lunch (I practically shoveled this in my face when I got home) - cottage cheese + tomato soup + 1 pc of bread with turkey
Snack - apple + pretzel rods dipped in hummus
Dinner - 1 glass of wine + homemade spaghetti
Michael & I leave for Las Vegas in 10 days, so I'm determined to eat well & keep things together. I want to rock my bikini! I'm a little nervous for an upcoming girls weekend I'm attending this weekend, in honor of my aunt's 50th birthday. I need to get in two runs (10 & 7 miles), & eat well. Always a challenge when most of the meals will be eaten out, and the schedule is determined by others. I'm working on a plan of attack so I can enjoy my weekend, but still get my training in. Fingers crossed that the weather will cooperate & I won't have to suffer through another bitter rainy long run.
What are your plans for the week ahead?
Any suggestions on a fun 1/2 marathon in June? Am I crazy for signing up for one a month earlier than planned?
