on my own

Well my husband is off to Scotland and I'm a single girl for 5 days. I'm off work tomorrow YAY!! and I plan to enjoy every minute in the house with my dogs and finally get some really good rest for my ankles which are still really bothering me.

This is the first year in many that I'm not involved in the Breast Cancer 3-Day in Atlanta and it's taking place this weekend. Luckily I decided not to participate this year because between the ankles and the fact my husband is gone, I wouldn't be able to do it. Today I had to go up to where the opening ceremonies will be held to drop off a banner I had from last year and it just made my stomach do flip-flops. Just seeing that starting point again of a really, really long journey. My thoughts are with all the walkers, crew and staff this weekend as the weather is supposed to be miserable and cold. Just like it's been every year. I can't remember a time where we woke up and didn't have ice on our tents. I wish they'd push it back a few weeks but then it might be too hot. I will be walking next year come hell or high water!

This weather has gotten me wanting to eat everything in sight. I'm going to stop at Trader Joe's tonight and stock up on healthier options of my favorite things and things my husband doesn't like! Monday I will be back at the gym which is another great reason to rest as much as I can this weekend. Hopefully that will get me back on track. I haven't gained any but haven't lost either which isn't bad for no exercise and an overdose of white bread to keep my medication down.

Hope everyone out there is doing well. I'm feeling quite a bit better. I hope that's it for the bad news for a while!
