Good Golly Miss Molly

Today for conferences I had a parent bring a box of Starbucks Mocha as a gift for me. I thought it was so nice and I love coffee! Especially since I was supposed to go through ten conferences today. I was again proud of myself for not eating the cookies I bought for my families, but I did have 2 cups of the mocha. Um, I just got off the the Starbucks website, and I believe I drank a minimum of 7 points worth of coffee today! Are you kidding me???? I hate when I consume something assuming the points are reasonable and they end up being off the charts.

I was able to manage running for 3.5 miles today in about 36 minutes. Not my fastest, but pretty good considering I'm still not 100%.

I finally ordered myself a marathon stick to massage my muscles after I run. My kids are all over rubbing it up and down my back! I can't wait to try it before and after my next run.

Oh- I hate sneaky high points foods. I have some big weaknesses, and I love saving up for those yums. Sneaky high points foods are almost always the reason I eat over in a week (usually I get mad, and eat my indulgence afterwards... so I could stop doing that... nah).

Sounds great. I can't wait until my toddler goes to school. I'm definitely going to be a parent that comes bearing gifts. If my kids turn out anything like me, their teachers deserve it!

hhhmmmm.... I'll take yummy sneaky point coffee over cookies any day (and I'm a cookie freak!) Cookies are harder to keep track of how many I ate. You know that whole just 1 more won't hurt and then you have forgotten how many 1 more's you actually ate. :)

I'm glad to hear conferences are under way, you can have a big sigh of relief really soon! I love hearing about your runs, keeps me motivated to try and get there some day :)

Starbucks drinks are full of calories....it is scary how many calories can be in one drink!

Congrats on the run, especially since you are not back to 100%
