Today is ACES day at school, which means "All Children Exercise Simultaneously." All the schools in the district will have the students outside doing exercise at the same time. We were allowed to wear warm-up pants and jerseys to school today, and our sneakers. My fiance went to Goodwill a while back and bought a high school soccer jersey don't ask why, I have no idea) that I decided to wear today. As I put it on, I thought to how it might have looked a few months ago: very unlikely that it was ever *my* soccer jersey. But now, I can actually imagine having worn this jersey. I can run now, I look quite a bit fitter, and there are no rolls peeking out from this jersey. I actually kind of look like a soccer player! And since I am already decked out in my work-out clothes, I think I may stay in town after school and get in a short little run downtown. We'll see how I feel, although it's sounding good right now.
Went to Adidas last night and got a CUTE new running skirt. It's technically a golf skirt, but it's super cute and has little shorts under it; perfect for running. I think I'll wear it on the run this Saturday. Or maybe it will be my 5K gear...? Speaking of 5Ks, I found a "clothing optional" 5K around here. I will NOT be entering that, but it made me giggle when I thought about all the jiggling parts going down the street.
Yesterday's PTA lunch was SO good. They had lots of Mexican food for Cinco de Mayo. Had a small vegetarian burrito and a piece of Mexican lasagna. YUM. I entered everything into the nutrition tracker, and I managed to stay within my ranges! Wahoo! It is getting somewhat easier to stay within my ranges since my calorie goal is so high. All this running and swimming! I like being able to eat a peanut butter and apple snack after my run and know that it will not affect my nutrition goals, even with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. My new-found knowledge of food rocks. It really helped me figure out the good choices yesterday for the PTA lunch.
This has gone on long enough. Have a Happy Hump Day!
