One day off

Today is going to be a busy day! I worked the past 3 days (12-hour shifts), have today off, then back to work tomorrow. So it's going to feel jam-packed today. I have a ton of reading to finish for school, a 2 page paper to write (not hard, just gotta get it done), laundry, working out, groceries, a quick trip to Kohl's to use my Kohl's cash, conferences tonight and Biggest Loser. My husband offered to get the groceries, but I don't have the whole list made out yet and sometimes it's easier for me just to run through and get the things that I know we need. Plus, I'm a little controlling about the shopping. Sometimes when he goes, he spends all the money for the week, and there was still stuff that we needed. I think this is one of the "learning" moments that I'm supposed to let him do it so I can get stuff done today other than that, but the whole control issue keeps coming back :-(.

I ran my longest distance at the gym the other day. 5 miles. Woo hoo! I know it doesn't sound that long to some people, but it's long for me! I'm not sure what I'm going to do for a workout today. Probably something at home since it'll be a busy day. Either treadmill or dvd. I've been counting points for weight watchers the past 2 weeks, I've lost 4 pounds. Three the first week, just 1 this week. I was a little bummed cause I was hoping for 2, but a loss is a loss. I'm trying to decide what weights program to do. I would like to focus on running, so I don't think that I want to do heavy weights right now. I was doing New Rules of Lifting for Women, which was a great program, but it's a lot of heavy lifting, and it doesn't work real well with running. I've read that I should be doing lighter weights for my legs since they're already "bulky" and I don't want to bulk them up anymore, they need to thin out!

My husband is still really leaning towards doing a marathon this spring. I'm proud of him. I think it's great to have a goal. I'm looking to do a 10K this summer. With working and school, I don't have time to train for a marathon w/ him, plus he said he needs me to drive him back home. He's looking into the St. Louis one in April.

Well, time to get the kids to school, then start my homework for the day.... Have a fantastic day!
