I am envious of my hubby. We went to the track tonight and there he was - running happily around the track...he did 400's, 800's and more 400's and I worked out my thumb by hitting start and stop on the stop watch - GRRRRRR. I tried to do some light running up and down the football field while he sprinted and about 3 minutes later I started to have pain again. I DID run backwards with success though since it is just like being in heels which actually makes the ankle/foot feel better. I also did some lunges and felt it twinge too...argh.
He did awesome of course. Kicked ass! His fastest 400 was 76 seconds - which is great! Next time it will be 75! :)
I was very envious as I looked at his muscley quads and tight glutes and saw the sweat drip down his face. Oh well, I know I must be patient but I was GREEN with envy. Soon enough my friends, soon enough.
Ah ha ha! How funny is that picture?? Found it and couldn't resist. It isn't me of course (unless I had some serious facial reconstruction, developed some Asian ancestry and lost about 20lbs!! :)). Speaking of green, we saw The Incredible Hulk on Sunday - AWESOME! Really a surprise but lots of fun and super entertaining!
Eating today was ON. Yippee.
On a sad note, my grandma is getting ready to move on to her next chapter. She has been very sick as of late and told the family on Friday last week that she doesn't want to fight any more. She is ready to move on and asked us to call hospice so I know we don't have much time with her. Mom called me this morning and told me that my aunt was with grandma all weekend and she is giving up and ready to go. Jody and I are going to leave on Wednesday night and make the 6 hour trek to see her and spend some time with her before she passes. I will miss her so much but yet I know she is ready to go and she will be in a much better place.
It makes Terrible Tuesday's seem silly....makes all the little stresses in life seem so minuscule and non important. I can't wait to see her and tell her face to face how much I love her and how much she has meant to me. Such a strong woman - six children and lots and lots of grandchildren. She taught me to LOVE potted meat, molasses cookies dipped in chocolate, grits, and BACON! She also helped me understand my challenges with my mom and has always supported me 100% in everything I have ever done. She gave and gave and gave....and her biscuits are LEGENDARY! Oh and her gumbo - amazing. And she would rub olive oil on dry skin patches. Man I will miss her...
Next VLOG I will do my impression of her - it makes my mom almost pee her pants every time I do it - it is pretty funny.....but in a really good-love-you-so-much-and-will-miss-you way. :) I don't have a picture of her on this computer but will post one soon for you guys. She has gorgeous white hair and eyes that twinkle.
Have a great week everyone and be grateful...tell those who mean something to you that you love them and why. You never know when you won't have a chance to say it to them again.
Love you guys!
