another rainy day (or weekend)

I decided to take today off from working out. Partly because I have a full workout week ahead of me, and partly because work was so crazy I didn't get out until 4:30.  It down poured in the middle of the day, but was clear later. I had a dinner date with my friend Shelley tonight. Shelley has become a runner with me as well, we ran in the Holyoke St. Patricks Day race 2 years ago. We decided to go out for sushi and shared a few rolls, then splurged on ice cream after (small dish!). I worked on convincing her to sign up for the triathlon with me. I love having my friends involved with my workout goals, because I feel even more vested in the outcome. I know that they are expecting a certain something from me, and I don't want to let them down! I want to prove that I am fit & athletic! Tomorrow I was planning a bike & job outdoors, but the weather will keep me indoors, so it will have to be a gym trip after work.

I don't think I've updated on the relationship status lately. HUGE fight tuesday. yelling, screaming (mind you, this was all over the telephone), and pretty much just a big mess. We finally calmed down around 1am (yawwwwn, thats why no gym wednesday am!) He said he understands me now, I hate how it takes a big fight for him to "understand" me. I think he really just doesn't listen or care until I'm so mad, I'm ready to leave him, then he gets that it's really important. In the end, he asked for the engagement ring back (I had been wearing it around my neck), so that he can plan the re-proposal. I am sort of hoping that it will happen while we're in Mexico on vacation somewhere romantic with the beach involved. I am trying to have no expectations. Anything will be better than the last way this happened.

Bed time for now, work tomorrow, followed by gym time!

That's awesome you can get your friends involved in your fitness goals. You're right that added accountability really helps to keep yourself motivated. And it's so much more fun to have someone to talk to before the race.

I hope everything works out for you relationship wise. Sounds like you guys are making a few steps in the right direction!
