First Day for Two Things

Today was Kennedy's first day of preschool! She was so excited! Truthfully I think she was just so jazzed to finally get to use her lady bug backpack we got her a couple weeks ago, but whatever gets her going is fine with me. 

She woke up super happy and wanted to get ready and look cute, which she never cares about. And because she was so excited she gave me her creeper smile while taking the traditional (and nauseatingly overseen) first-day-of-school-in-front-of-the-house-with-a-backpack-on picture. 
Even in her toned-down, second attempt, the anticipation is breaking through. 
 And she was way too cool to hold my hand or even walk beside me as we went inside. She just took off towards the doors. I wanted to get a picture of her in her class but her teachers swooped right in and carried her off (probably anticipating having some criers) but Kennedy didn't cry. She gave me a hug and turned and left. She told me her first day was good and she fell down on the playground and cried. That's more than I ever got out of her last year, so the first day is looking awesome! 

We also had another first today... 

I don't know why I have waited so long to start matching them but I have developed a taste for it now, so they're 
screwed. The best part? These overalls were only $10. 

I also kicked dinners butt tonight. 
I made fajitas but went without the tortilla and topped it with Greek yogurt and fresh pico de gallo. Superb. 

Two more things:

I've accepted a challenge at the gym to go a week without refined sugar. Basically sweets. Today was day one. 
So far so good. 

I have developed a mild case of plantar fasciitis in my right foot. I want to keep it mild, so I haven't ran since last weekend and I've been stretching and wearing a compression sock. It has gotten better so I'm hoping it gives me zero problems this weekend for the half marathon. I'm also hoping the half marathon doesn't make it worse for the marathon. Why must I have an injury now?! At least it's not serious and I can still do my thang. 

Tomorrow is Wednesday. Hump day. Go and make it a great one.
