I have been completely unmotivated for the past three weeks or so. One of my best friends died and since then I've felt "I deserve that ice cream, that cookie, that pasta and puff pastry because I am grieving!" For the first time since he died, I had a dream about him last night. He was a dinosaur. I was a dinosaur too. And Dear Husband and everyone else. We did human things and talked like humans, but we were dinosaurs.

But I'm shaking that off and for the first time in over a month, I'm going to the gym today after work. I've bought my meals for the week, my fruits and vegetables and whole grains. I've signed up to run a 10K- in TWO WEEKS!! Less than that actually- more like 11 days. I'll probably do intervals... I have a friend who beat me by 15 minutes in the C_______ Half Marathon by doing intervals of walking/running and I had run the whole way. There is certainly no shame in it.

I haven't weighed myself in three weeks but I don't think the damage is more than four pounds. I'll find out for sure on Sunday.

In another four weeks, Dear Husband and I will be in the deep south, swilling margaritas, partying and playing music with old friends. I have tickets to see Patrick Street in Atlanta. I have a new flight bag. I want to get some travel skirts and have my hair long enough to put in a ponytail by then. Please, hair, grow!

Well, I think you looked AWESOME when I saw you, so I don't think you've done too much damage. You had to do what you had to do mentally to cope with your emotional pain, and now you're shaking it off and getting back on track. *hugs*

Hair grows (on average) about half an inch a month. How close are you to pulling it back now?

Good luck with everything! Here's to our goals!!!
