I got to spend all day yesterday with J, it was the first time we've had the same day off since late August.  It was a wonderful thing. 

I jokingly asked him how I should wear my hair for the day and he quickly answered "in braided pigtails".
"Why that?" I asked.
"It's cute, and then I can pull them which satisfies the seven year old boy in me."
So I wore my hair in pigtails.  And he occasionally pulled them.
I have started logging all of my meals at Sparkpeople again.  I had taken a pause from the site after the race I ran in early August that ended up lasting until a week ago.  During that pause I regained some of the weight I had managed to take off.  Boo.  For me sparkpeople is less about being on a diet than simply being aware.  For example, the salad I get when I go to Boston Market turns out to be 1100 calories.  So not okay.
I also got moving again last week, going back to yoga and running for the first time since the most recent race.  It seems less vital to be setting aside exercise time when I'm working on my feet all day - but it felt good.
My big plans for later today include picking up my custom-made hula hoop.  Whee!
