This weekend was my family reunion, and it was WONDERFUL. It was so nice to see so many people that I love and enjoy. Plus we had a blast--there was a zipline and canoe racing and all sorts of fun activities. It was much more fun than I expected. Also, I didn't let my weight get in the weight of enjoying the zipline. I nearly passed on it because I was worried my arms couldn't support my weight or I would cause the line to sag so much that I would end up in the lake soaked to the core, but I went anyway. Guess what? None of my fears proved true--it was awesome!

In an effort to still get in a killer workout, I decided to run 5 miles outside for the first time. I was staying at my sister's house which is around 6500 feet in elevation. In Utah, I run at about 4300 feet above sea level. Apparently that difference in elevation made a difference. Also, I was running and wasn't paying attention to where I was going and tripped and twisted my calf muscle. That's bad news item #2. I tried to run through the pain, but after a mile or so of trying to push through it I realized it was only getting worse. So I walked 1.5 miles back to the house defeated. Sad. I also got a wicked sunburn for being outside for that hour. Apparently it was not my day when it came to running! Better luck next time!
Bad news item #3...I sucked at eating within my calories. My family had WAY too much tasty food around, and apparently I was ravenous. I didn't overeat like I would normally do, but I still ate more than I knew I should. I haven't done the official calorie count yet but I'm sure it will be ugly. This week will be much better as I can be in control of what is available for me to eat!
