What a Week!

I am so glad the last 10 days are over!! The wedding went beautifully (even with its Groomzilla), Munchkin was a vision in pink tulle, Hubby looked pretty good in a tux and I managed not to embarrass the family as I ran around in heels (and I didn't break an ankle). There were picnics and BBQs galore in the days after the wedding so everyone could visit with the out-of-town relatives and Munchkin had a blast playing with her cousins. 

Once most of the wedding and visiting stuff was over I had a massive panic attack when I realized that I had a math test on the 10th. To say I wasn't prepared would be an understatement but I managed to cram in tons of study time. Not sure how I did yet, I have a sneaky suspision it wasn't very well but...*sigh*

On Saturday I completed my first 5k! I came in last but I did finish the race. I've been running on the treadmill and thought I would do all right but I did several things wrong. First, like everyone has told me, running on pavement is MUCH different than the treadmill and I didn't do much pavement work. Second, I run barefoot but for this race (since I knew it was mostly road) I decided to wear shoes. And not my VFFs, my Nikes. So, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that by halfway in the race my legs were aching and I was moving slower and slower...and slower...

Ah well, there's always the next race.

I did not eat clean over the past week. Even at the picnics and BBQs I could probably have figured out a way to but I didn't. And, once I slipped off the wagon, it was easy to allow other little things in especially with all the stress going on. Strangely I still lost 1 pound but I felt pretty cruddy by Sunday. Its was actually nice today to get back into the kitchen and whip up some bone broth and to dig into a gigantic salad, plus it tasted a heck of a lot better than some of the junk food I'd been noshing on.

How was your week? Did you do anything fun and exciting?
