What a crazy night. We went to La Locanda for my Dad's dinner party and I ended up having to leave because I felt like crap. Mom took Simon home with her so I could sleep, lest I ended up vomiting all night, which thankfully I did not.
I went for a run outside yesterday and I almost barfed up a lung. That should have been my first clue that I was not feeling well but I chalked it up to not having been able to work out since before my trip to the Dominican (will post pictures next). I definitely gained at least 5lbs during my vacation...many many Pina Coladas at happy hour will do that to you. When I weighed in on Sat I was up 3.2lbs so I was able to lose some before the meeting. I tried out a new meeting with my friend Dawn and I really liked it. Sometimes it is good to shake things up and it is nice to have Dawn there to bounce ideas off of. I really miss my old leader, Jess, but she switched to a different meeting too far away from KOP. The person that replaced her was ok. So I decided to try the Collegeville meeting and it was good.
I am not sure if I am going to be able to run a full 5k on April 17. I am still going to sign up for it and try but I am still only running about 3 minutes at a time and no more than that. But that is 3 min more than I could run in Jan so I am happy with that. There are others walking this particular race so worst case I run and then walk the rest of the way.
I have to start doing some core training - the running is not going to be enough to help me reach my final weight goal by the end of the year. I think I have a new incentive - if I reach my goal and maintain my weight for 6 weeks and make it to life time I am going to get one of my tattoos redesigned. I have 2 that are old and fading that need to be touched up but I think that I might have one redesigned in honor of my son. I have been thinking about it for a while so hopefully by the time I reach my goals I will have figured out what design I want and they will be able to do something over the existing tat I have.
OK, I have to get dressed and pic up Simon. Pics of the Dominican to follow in the next post. Ciao!
