Going to visit friends is always interesting and fun. My friend in Virginia is also my old college roommate. It’s an easy relationship and one of my very favorites. We laugh until we cry, we do nothing and it’s fun, we drink like fish. I come back from seeing her feeling like I need to immediately detox with vegetables and water to get rid of the beer and fried food bonanza. This trip was an ENTIRE week so I’m thinking grand thoughts like training for a halfie (half marathon) and losing ten pounds minimum in three months. This has never worked for me before, but I keep embarking on this “I will do it THIS time” mentality.
