I got a facial on Wednesday and boy did I need it. We have something here called Groupon. They give you deals, like the one I purchased. I got a basic facial (usually $70) for $35. Not too shabby! You tip on the full amount and you have to pay tax, but it's definitely a good deal. I was exhausted, I felt better, but kind of crappy and for about an hour I was able to relax and my face felt great.
Now this was a basic facial, which didn't include any deep pore cleansing. I will have to get a top of the line facial soon before my wedding so I can get rid of any black heads I have. I may be pale and freckly, but overall my skin stays pretty clear! Below is a picture after I left, I didn't smile because I wanted to show my skin with no lines in it. I look hardcore! Don't mess with me!
Yesterday was great! B and I have been working hard this week communicating and figuring out how to communicate best. We are 100% committed to getting through any issues (well mostly any issues, I am pretty sure I/we can't get past any cheating) that come up no matter where they come. It is not always easy, like I said before, but I am praying and hoping it is worth it and so far it feels like it is. We are connected and focusing on us and yesterday was a good day. We felt happy again and I was able to get a great nights sleep! I think I plopped down around 9am and stayed asleep until around 7am! I woke up today feeling refreshed and focused!
Unfortunately, running was not in the cards for me all week. I am waking up early tomorrow and getting a long run in, my goal is 5 miles. After that, not sure. Maybe a bike ride, maybe cleaning, grocery shop, I don't know, all depends on the weahter. I'm not making plans this weekend, so my plan is to relax, do what I feel like and enjoy it!
Next week marks my official training schedule. I am both nervous and excited. Get ready to hear about the blisters, chaffing, bathroom breaks, oh yes, are you getting excited yet?????
