I should be on the last day of Aunt Flow. Thank the Lord! I cannot believe how bad the hormones fuck with my head for that few days leading up to and first couple days of. I'm going to take a hard look at going on the pill. I've been totally against it, because I don't like to take pills, etc. It's so funny...since I eat such garbage all the time. It's just as bad as taking pills, etc. Anyway, I can live with the heavy flow, but I can no longer live with how bad it fucks with my head. It's pure craziness. So, if the pill can help that part of it, with it's regulation, I'm going to do it.
We went to the Chili Fest on Saturday and met up with a couple of Brian's coworkers. Let me tell you something: it was freaking cold! Everything had meat in it, so I couldn't take part in the tastings, but the boys went crazy. I, went crazy on the beer. I got a pretty huge buzz on, and then Brian and I went to a local dive bar and drank some more and had dinner. We really had a good time. We actually had a good talk about everything. This whole move is still just so stressful....me, not having a job, etc. It's a lot to deal with. So, it was a long day of drinking, which isn't the end of the world....except I drank more that day than I have since we've been back in IL. Of course, I did this the day/night before having to be up at 6 A.M. for my first 5k. Ugh. I met my friend Marie (who was on her 5th 5k of the year) in a nearby town. OMG. I loved, loved, loved it. We just walked it, but for me it was a good pace. Look, I know 56 minutes 30 seconds is nothing to brag about, but it's my start! I can't wait to do the next one. I love seeing all of the different body types, and all of the encouragement that goes along with it. It was so nice to visit with Marie, too. I hadn't seen her since we got back to IL. All around, what a great experience. Marie and I are already planning our next one. We will also be doing a 10k next month, which will be great. Cold, but great ;)
I hope your Monday had gone as good as it could be for a Mon. The Seahawks are about to start, so I've got to get ready! Go Hawks!
