Running for Beer

Make a plan and watch God laugh… That’s what they say, right? We had to take care of some errands yesterday afternoon that took us quite far from our house. By the time we finished it was rush-hour and we were clear across town. Instead of fighting traffic we just hung out and met friends.

Compounded by the fact that we had been on our feet all afternoon, we were physically exhausted. At dinner we both popped pain-killers. Something we really never do. Taking to the pavement in Summer temperatures really took it out of us. It was truly an equivalent to running.

On top of ditching the run we met our friends and each had a beer. Tsk, tsk, tsk…. I know, we shouldn’t have. We don’t even drink often. But, somehow watching what we eat and trying to exercise regularly makes me want to drink.

The good news. We ate smart and just splurged on a little frozen yogurt to cool down from the heat. But, no running yesterday.

What do you splurge on when you’re trying to lose weight?

  1. Sweets. I don’t drink – gave it up years ago because I’d rather eat my points (weight watchers).

    Sometimes plans have to change; that’s life. And nothing wrong with an indulgence as long as it isn’t too often & enjoyed with no guilt!
