Leave the Gun ... Take the Cannoli

I had to post something because I was tired of looking at my evil face every time I pulled up the blog.

I completed Week 1 of C25K and tonight starts Week 2. It's a beautiful day to run and can't wait to get out there after work. I had a wonderful weekend.

Friday night was game night with the life group. We ate pizza and played this game called "Imagine If ..." Are you familiar? Neither was I but it was a very interesting way to get to know each other a little better. You have to draw a card and read the "Imagine If" statement about the person that is next to you. Then everyone else chooses an answer from the list of choices. Here's what mine said: "If Michele were a tool, which tool would she be?" (1) sledge hammer (2) pruning shears (3) level ... and I cannot remember what the other choices were. My answer? Sledge hammer. Definitely sledge hammer. I think one of the other ladies guessed correctly.

After my run on Saturday my daughter and I went shopping and found some lovely things. Check out the video to the right for the details. It was a blast but after a few hours we were worn out. On the way home I stopped at one of my favorite Italian places and picked up a slice of carrot cake for my daughter and a cannoli for myself and my son. I love a good cannoli and this one was spectacular.

I got up on Sunday and went to the gym and got reacquainted with the treadmill. I did 30 minutes of intervals and then ran another mile for good measure. Actually, after the intervals I didn't feel as though I had done anything so I ran the extra mile so I could work up a good sweat. After the workout came the shower and shampoo and then I grabbed the Princess again and we went to lunch at this El Salvadorian restaurant. Check out the review over at Delicious! Yummy!

I noticed that I discuss food a lot on this blog. That probably explains my inability to get my weight lower than 141. The good news is, it's also not any higher than 141.

I hope you all had a good weekend as well. It's Monday again ... make the most of it.
