Today is my sons high school graduation prom. As a Brit living in Canada I am still somewhat bemused by all the fuss, expense, grad gowns, suits, flowers, photo sessions etc ( our eldest daughter graduated two years ago, and we really had no idea that time!). It's worse than a wedding I think and with 130 graduates at the school, the whole town seems to be turned upside down.
So, what was the first thing I did this morning ( after dispatching DH to work with strict instructions to be home at the appropriate time)? Did I wash my hair, paint my nails, iron shirts for the men, polish shoes? Nope. I put on a baseball cap ( to cover the fact I hadn't had my shower and washed my hair like I do every morning) and took off on my W3R3.
I did it. I'm slightly disappointed that it still felt hard, I had hoped it would seem easier than wednesdays run but it was the same.
What I really feel good about is that I want this badly enough to fit in even when life is doing everything to get in the way.
I plan to walk both days this weekend and then start week 4 on Monday. For now, however, I must go and try to turn myself into a bit of a girlie, girl (not my natural habitat). I'd rather go in running gear than a dress, but that's not going to happen. The things we do for our kids!!
Well done to all those finishing Week 3, see you all next week.😀😀👗👗👠👠😱😱
