Life is better..........

Thursday, June 14, 2018

Pre event stress is out of the way now. After a big family get together with way too much potato salad. I went on a 2 1/2 day juice cleanse. Boy did that help. I have also made sleeping a priority.

Had a big play day with the family and another water fight. All 6 grandchildren in one place. The cousins had a Blast! Grandma and Grandpa had a blast blasting the kids with water!

Yesterday was spent with my daughter and 4 grandkids. once again 6 kids and a Wonderful 5 hours at the local pool. Big non scale victory was when I could go down the water slide at the pool. I asked the lifeguard if I could go down and she said. "You are definitely under 250lbs so yes you can!". Made me remember when I was over 250 :).

Now it is wind down time. In 3 days Dale and I will be taking off to the Rocky Mountains for 4 days of peace and quite couple time. The weather here has been high 90's to 100 today. In the mountains it will be a high of 60 and low of 45. Possible chance of rain. We have both admitted that for us that will be heaven. Just tucked away in our cabin (with GiGi) and have everything we could want delivered. Ahhhh Wonderful.

For the running.. Has been few runs lately. Having trouble with my left foot. Enough discomfort that I have only been walking. Going to take a few days rest and see if it corrects it self. Might have just over done it with the Half, followed by two 5K's. May have to do more water aerobics for a week or two. Will decide that once we return from our pampered rest.

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

    Rocky Mountain high and family fun. Looks like great fun to me. Hi Dale, hi Julian, Hi Elise! About your foot. Rice You know what that is, rest, ice, compression, elevation. If you have a boot, wear it for a couple of days! seriously it will protect you and help it heal. emoticon

    What great photos! It looks like you all had a great time. I'm sorry to hear that your foot is still bugging you, I can see you staring out the window sobbing lightly for all the lost runs.

    Looking forward to seeing your vacation photos, the Rockies are such a great place. I lived in Banff for awhile, so much beauty.

    What fun! I'm so glad you were able to spend such a great time with your family. And now it's couple time! And in the Rocky Mountains! Oh my, am I envious right now. I love those mountains. They were made for hiking ;-) Take lots of pictures! I hope your foot feels better soon. Good call to take it easy on it for a bit. You are awesome taking on all of those runs like you did. Inspiring lady you are!

    You are doing well to pay attention when that left foot complains... give it time to heal and there will be happy runs in the future! And nothing better than water fights in the warm Summer weather! emoticon emoticon
