Day 146 (Monday 3/31)

Well blogger buddies Monday is behind us and we are well on our way to Friday!

Monday morning I got up and hit the gym before work for a 30 minute run. About 4-5 minutes of that was walking and I finally got in a full 5K! Now my goal is to shoot for running a full 5K with no walking. I am pretty sure I can do it!

After my workout I had breakfast consisting of oatmeal w/blueberries and a sliced apple for 3 points. DSC02200 

Around noon I had my morning snack (late I know!) – ww strawberry yogurt with 1/4 c grape nuts for 2 points.

I took a later lunch on Monday so I was glad that I had my morning snack late too! I made a VERY filling lunch…so filling that I couldn’t eat it all and brought it back to work to munch on throughout the afternoon. I had a ham, turkey, & cheese wrap, 1 sliced cucumber w/ff ranch, 1 c cantaloupe, and 1/2 c cottage cheese for 7 points.

After work I was hoping to get my supper in early because I had a home party to go to, but didn’t quite turn out that way. Time got away from me and I planned to run to my friend’s apartment that was hosting the party.  But I think I was ok because of my oh so filling lunch! So around a little before 6 I started out on what I had planned on to be a 2.7 mile run to her place. Well things changed a tad…hold on ‘cause this could be a long story!

So I started out and happen to notice that this one car had went by me numerous times in a few different directions. I didn’t think much of it at first and after about mile 1 I took an un-planned turn and took a one way street to see if this car would go that way too. Well they did…and went by almost 7 more times! And yep I said one way….they had to turn around and come back up from behind me. So I decided to stop running, take my head phones off, and called DH while just walking along. Well he was working and wasn’t free. I was hoping that if I was on the phone they would go away. I got a hold of my neighbor and he happened to be out driving close to where I was and insisted on coming to get me. In our 5 minute phone conversation this car drove by at least 4-5 more times before my neighbor got to me. So in the end I was really glad that my neighbor came and got me and took me to my friend’s apartment. I think the car saw me get into my neighbor’s truck and took a screeching turn in the opposite direction!

I have never felt like that before while out. But also I usually don’t run in that direction. But still it was a nice residential neighborhood and it was 6 o’clock in the evening, bright and lots of cars driving around. Part of me wonders what would have happened if I would have kept running…if they were just bored and it was a COMPLETE coincidence that they went by so many times or if they were looking for trouble. But I’m glad I didn’t stick around to find out! Wow! That got my heart rate up! But I still got in at least 18 minutes of running/walking.

The party was fun. Ordered a diffuser…those things that smell good! And I think I might host a show…it was for PartyLite. And of course my friend hosting the party had snacks. I am going to estimate that I had 6 points worth of snacking while at her place. (jelly beans, snack mix, and a new cheerio cheddar snack mix thing)

Another friend brought me home and I quickly fired up the grill for supper, it was after 8pm already! I had a grilled teriyaki chicken sandwich with cheese and an orange for 6 points. The chicken was good…I’m so ready for summer and grilling season!

That whole running/driving thing freaks me out!!

I had something similar happen to me once but it turned out to be someone I kinda knew. Still freaky nonetheless.

Glad to hear that you got to your destination safe though.

Good luck with your WI!

The running story is scary! You need to get yourself some pepper spray!! Be safe!

Kelly said...

OMG, Darci! That's so scary. I'm glad your neighbor was nearby. Get yourself some mace or pepper spray or a gun or something! Dang! Be careful out there.

That chicken sandwich looks incredible.

Dancing Sweet Pea said...

Wow Darcy that is so scary! I'm glad you were able to get a hold of your neighbour and be picked up! There are definitely some weirdos out there!
Sounds like a lot of fun at the party too!
Good luck at WI!

Leah said...

Scary story. Oh my gosh!
Good luck tonight!

Kari said...

Oh my goodness girl I'm SO glad that you called and got your neighbor to come get you. That sounds a little too suspicious to just be a coincidence. How about one of those emergency whistles or something?
And just so ya know...I had major craving for your chicken sandwich so I stopped after work to pick up some stuff to make me a chicken sandwich with cheese. lol.

Smart thinking on your part to get someone to help you. Definitely a heeby-jeeby moment.

As far as your weight, it is what it is. You've had some splurges, but you've also had a lot of healthy meals and good exercise to balance it out!

Sandy said...

I'm sooo glad he was able to get you. In this day and age, the chance is just not worth it, kwim?

GL with WI!!! Hope you have a great week :)

Laura said...
