Good afternoon! Today is absolutely flying by! Early this evening, Ryan and I have a guest arriving in town. My father-in-law is coming to visit and booked a last-minute flight to Charlotte to stay with us through next Tuesday.
We’re looking forward to showing him around our new hometown (he’s our first guest in our new house!) and we’re hoping to make it out to a few local restaurants, a festival and go on a couple of hikes during his time with us.
In preparation for my father-in-law’s visit, I spent most of the morning organizing the guest room and straightening up around the house in between answering emails and participating in a conference call.
Before I knew it, my stomach let me know it was lunchtime. I threw together a quick meal that began with a cup of Fage Greek yogurt to take the edge off.
I ate the yogurt while chopping up all the ingredients I needed to make a delicious salad with ham, romaine, tomato, zucchini and yogurt ranch dressing.
Plus an apple on the side.
Now I’m off to a local middle school for my first Girls on the Run coaching experience! (I am technically leading girls through the Girls on Track program since I am working with 6, 7 and 8th graders.)
I initially thought I was going to have to miss our first practice, but one benefit of forgetting my passport on Saturday is that now I’m able to be there for the first practice with my team! I’m coaching with two assistant coaches who have both volunteered with the organization before, so one of my co-coaches will be leading the lesson today before I dive in on Thursday. I’m so happy I’ll have some experts coaching with me! A bunch of you expressed interest in hearing more about my experience during this season and I’ll be sure to keep you updated as everything progresses.
See ya later!
