Hello! This afternoon was more of the same — viewing commercial and residential properties and trying to decide whether or not we want to move from Florida to North Carolina. We haven’t made any decisions at all, but we sure are having fun!
The Urban Planner in me is kind of freaking out because we get to check out all these mixed-use developments. 🙂
Everything in Charlotte is so pretty. It’s definitely more aesthetically appealing than Orlando.
We grabbed lunch at EarthFare… I was so excited to try this out because I’ve seen it on Kath’s blog so frequently.
I had a salad with BBQ tofu (which was actually yucky and I didn’t eat) and a small roll. With pineapple on the side.
Plus two vegan oatmeal raisin cookies.
And an Honest Tea.
I also had a handful of trail mix:
Around 2, we met up with a realtor who showed my in-laws several properties (and when I say several, I mean 15…. it was exhausting). Check out his license plate:
In between house hunting, I snacked on a few blue chips:
And another cookie:
Addicting. Vegan crack.
Now we’re back at the hotel for some down time, and then we’re going to dinner. I’m kind of torn because I feel like I should go to the gym and run, but I really don’t want to. I feel badly because I’m registered for a long race (15.0 miles) on April 11 and haven’t been sticking to my schedule at all. It’s not like I cry myself over it or my self-esteem plummets, but I definitely struggle with exercise guilt when I miss my workouts. I hate to admit that, but it’s true.
I am concerned about losing my endurance, not putting on weight. I worry I’m losing strength and that my next long run will feel torturous (which it will).
Does anyone else struggle with exercise guilt? Can you give me any tips for just letting it go? If it’s just a day or two that I’ve missed, its easy for me "get over it," but I do feel quite guilty when I know I’ve generally been slacking on my training schedule for a few weeks.
Haha, love the license plate 😀
Hang in there, Caitlin!! Treat your body well and just exercise when you feel like it 🙂
