Last Day of Vacay

It's my last day in Ellijay. Honestly, I should be in bed right now, since I have to be up around 4:30 a.m. D: I have a long drive ahead of me. I'm taking Yurani to the airport on the way home, which is why we're leaving so early. It will be nice to be home when Josh gets home from work, though, so I'm not complaining.

Today was a mess, food wise, but hey - I never said I was ready to be perfect. I said I was working on it. And I really am...I just feel like my weaknesses are in social situations, on weekends, etc. During the day I'm usually really good, and when I get a work routine going again I think that will help a lot. But these are all excuses, truthfully. Tomorrow is a full day on the road. I have breakfast planned (two hard-boiled eggs, a Greek yogurt, and an apple), but snacks/lunch? Who knows. I'll probably hit up Starbucks somewhere between ATL and the Florida border, so hopefully that tides me over.

Yurani and I did go for a 5K-distance run today, which was great. It's the second one we've done since I've been here, so at least I'm getting some exercise in. I am so, SO out of shape, you guys. :[ That distance takes everything out of me - and that's INCLUDING walk breaks. I probably walked a good eight or nine minutes of the 37 it took me to complete the distance. And while walking isn't a bad thing, I used to be able to knock out a 5K distance no problem. Well...OK, that's a little bit of a lie. I never finished a 5K and thought PSH, THAT WAS EASY! But it was a different kind of difficult back when I was training diligently. I had to tell myself, "Pain is weakness leaving the body" MORE than once on that run today. It was also very hot, which is another excuse, but there you go. I'm sure in Orlando it would've been 10 times worse. I anticipate a lot of treadmill runs this summer; thank God for the Netflix iPhone app.

Completely off topic, but I've been reading/listening (during my drive up and tomorrow during my drive back down) to Game of Thrones. I watched the first season, but it's been a while so I'm reading the first book to kind of refresh it in my mind. Then I'm going to watch season 2 and read the second book, 3 and read the third book, etc. I hope I can get through them before the fourth season premieres. I want to catch up on New Girl and Community as well. I started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Netflix. Have only seen the first episode and half of the second so far, but I feel like I'm really going to like it. Also, if you're not watching Bates Motel, DO IT. The first season just ended, and Josh and I loved it.

I also want to start up my Rosetta Stone French again. I paid $400 for that thing and used it last year for like two weeks. We're planning on going to France and Germany for our honeymoon, so I need to get on it. Josh is responsible for learning enough German to get us by, and I'm responsible for the French part.

I should get going so I can enjoy these last moment with my BFF before she flies away to Denver. :[ At least Benson will be in Orlando in July. Pretty certain I'm taking him to Disney World...better start prepping now.
