Happy Hump Day! Starting to feel normal again! & Help me spread some love!

Hi there!

How is everyone out there in blog land? What's new, fun & exciting?

I am starting to feel a little more back to normal. Good thing too, it's 1/2 way through June and I need to get on the ball!

Over the last few weeks I have been slacking I think. I have not been exercising like I should be and I have not been logging my food either. So, this week, I am off to a good start!

Monday, I tried to run 5K but ended up walking all but 1 1/2 miles of it. I have been really struggling over the last 2 weeks to run the 3.1 miles I have done so many times. I think it has something to do with the heat...It's been HOT!!

Tuesday was a bike day. I biked about 6 miles burned around 300 calories, did a friends nails, picked my grandfather up from the airport and took him up north and watched Supernatural reruns with my girls.

Today was a run day! I was determined to get my 3.1 miles today! And I DID!!! YAY! I was 74 degrees so not extremely hot, but I was ready for it to be over when I hit that 3.1 mark. I ran a bit slower then I have been, burned 530 calories doing and I feel good!
I do not like my scale right now. It says I have gained 3 lbs since Monday, but there is no way! I am retaining some serious water though, and I have not been getting my water in. I have not been making the best food choices but I have not eaten 3 lbs of crap either. So...I am concentrating on my food log, water intake and exercise. And I have resolved to not beat myself up over this. I need to be patient. As if that is something I am good at LOL.
Breakfast was after my run and came in at 298 Calories, 12 grams of fat, 14.83 grams of sugar, and 17 grams of protein. Now, to stay at 700 calories for the rest of the day!
Today's agenda is mainly cleaning up this messy house. My house is very lived in. There are 5 of us in here and it gets bad in seconds. I feel like I am constantly turning off lights, picking up socks and yelling at the kids to do the dishes. This is only 2 of the 7. YIKES!! Luckily they don't all look like this! Since I am not working I am going to deep clean over the next 3 days. Then talk to the family about keeping it that way :-) Doubtful but I can try!
This little girl is gonna help! She's still on house arrest :-) Mom is so mean!!
I have also decided I am going to start doing nails again. Extra money! It took me 3 tries to do my own the way I wanted them. It's so hard to do acrylics on yourself! I'm happy with the finished product!
The set I did the other day came out great! My friend is also the art instructor where I go paint. We are trading. She is going to teach me how to paint and I am going to do her nails. Great trade!
OK I am off to be like Cinderella! Time to get this house in shape! Have a great afternoon/evening! Hugs to everyone and thanks for all of your support! Especially over these last few weeks!
HELP me spread the love! I've got a few new bloggers here and since y'all are so awesome I know I can count on you to help support them too =)
