Thank you times a billion for the sweet engagement comments and tweets!!!!! You have no idea how much each one meant to the both of us. I always knew the two of us would be super excited to start our lives together, but I never imagined all of the support we would receive along the way…absolutely amazing!
Since the engagement, I’ve been thinking a lot about my half marathon training and the importance I place on following my plan (to the tee). Well, I’m still going to run the race in August, but I think I’m definitely going to have to be more flexible with my plan. I already know of three Sundays where I may not be able to run due to travel, so long runs may have to be shifted around. It’s all about priorities, I suppose. I’m not going to lie, I feel very jittery just thinking about deviating from my plan but after this past week and weekend, I think I’ll be ok. Let’s review and then debrief…
[Note: I’m not using my usual chart format because I’m lazy and because this week was really a dud in terms of working out and running…]
Tuesday: 3.5 mile run
Wednesday: 3 mile walk
Thursday: No More Trouble Zones DVD (Jillian Michaels)
So you see…I didn’t follow the plan at all. There was supposed to be a little cross-training and 5k action going on, but I clearly strayed. I’m not going to get down on myself though. I got engaged on Friday, and I wanted to spend every minute I could with Vishnu. I honestly wouldn’t change a thing about Week 4. Priorities!
I think that even after this half is over and I’m back to my old workout routine (4-5 times a week), I will have to keep reminding myself to remain flexible, especially on the weekends. Indian wedding planning is a very involved process (and kind of exhausting from what I hear). Don’t get me wrong, I’m so excited to set a date and begin, but it is what it is…all about priorities!
Completely random side note…check out this cute little cartoon I found!!
Vishnu & Parita as cartoons
Anyways…I’m sure I’ll be blogging about how to deal with stress and change and conflicting priorities as this is what my life is going to be for the next few months. Practice what you preach, right?!
And to top it all off, work is getting to be very busy as of late.
My once a day blogging routine may change to once every other day or so…oh life, how you get in the way!!!
Thanks, y’all…for reading, for supporting, and for being so excited for me. I wish I could give each and every one of you a BIG hug!!! Hopefully one day it’ll really happen, but until then, let’s pretend!
<- That’s us!!!
So tell me…how did (is) wedding planning going for you? If you’re not married or engaged, do you want a super fancy wedding or something simple and cute!?
