OK, all done whining from yesterday!
It's amazing how just starting a day right can affect your mood, and the whole rest of your day.
I think the apartment rearranging last night helped a ton, and John came over to hang out. We played Quorkle (sp?) which is kind of like Scrabble, but more about matching shapes and colors instead of words. I kicked his BUTT - and that's the first time that's ever happened! :) We watched "Evolution" while we played, which is always good for a laugh.
This morning we got up at 5:30am to meet Stacey in the park again for a walk. It was chilly and overcast, but it's such a nice way to start the day! I told them that I would love to get up that early every day, to which they replied "Uhm, so why don't you?". I really don't know! So that's something I'm going to work towards. Getting up earlier, and starting the day right.
We had softball pretty late (at 9pm!), and John and I tried to go a little earlier so that we could do some batting in the cages - but they were already closed! So we stopped at a liquor store so that John could get some PBR, and I grabbed a bottle of wine to enjoy on my cheat day this Saturday. :) It's Cupcake's Red Velvet red wine - I can't wait to try it.
Since I couldn't play (even just taking a step to pivot & throw the ball made my leg hurt) I sat on the bleachers & cheered with Kris (girlfriend of one of our teammates). It was SO chilly and windy, I was glad that Stacey gave me her huge blanket! I cheered my head off, and it was a very close game (we only lost by 1 run). It was a fun evening though!
Powerball & a banana with a cup of green tea (trying not to have coffee every day!) ;)

Bottle of homemade unsweetened Tulsi Honey Chamomile iced tea
