A little pickle juice after my Friday run. Mmm-mm.
Friday, May 03, 2013
I haven't been to the gym since April 16th.
I ran 2.5 miles last Saturday, and 1.8 miles Tuesday.
That's all folks. No push-ups. No sit-ups. No yoga. No tricep dips. No strength classes. Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Ok...you get the point. I've been lazy! I feel bad, phyically and mentally.
Tonight I'm going for a short (2m) run, then a walk/jog with a neighbor that wants to get started.
I must get back on board. I LOVE running. I LOVE R.I.P.P.E.D. on Saturdays. I LOVE our Tough Mudder training. But I just haven't been in the right mind I guess. Blah.
This month I'm also going booze-less. I'm not an overdrinker, but I know it causes bloat, and this friend and I decided we are going to slim down a little by holding back instead of tipping back. I know what you're thinking, "You're mexi by marriage! Cinco de Mayo is coming up! It's almost the weekend! The grass is green! Blue is a color!" Yes, yes, all of those are reasons to celebrate with a little bubbly. We have made a decision though, and we're sticking to it....so we say. We'll see. I'm for sure going to withhold the first few weeks of July b/c I'm going to San Diego to see my super skinny, super tan, super gorgeous friend. I assume I'll be in a swimmy suit so I need to be ready. I'll drink while I'm there, ya know, to catch up.
Here are some things I've been eating, doing, and seeing lately:
|Breakfast I threw together b/c we were out of milk|
|Dinner when the naysayer says we have nay|
|Lunch from the nothing dinner|
|Fish soup. mmmm|
If you like his shirt, you can get one here and support this runner gal.

Instead, I did this:
I waited until yesterday because our weather has been so spotty. ...and then I woke up today to a yard full of frost. Awesome. I will not pray for the plants to survive, but I will have faith that they will and will prepare for the harvest.
While 'gardening' I found this:
A little snake. We seem to have a family of them in our yard. This is the 2nd snake I've killed in as many weeks. I saw the big snake holes in the dirt. I am a little nervous as to the size of the next one I will find....

1: Monday for example, I was in a funk, even though my blog said I would think positive. Actually, I did. I was positive that I was in a bad mood. Hmph.
2: Yesterday I had to go to Sam's. If you have a warehouse store membership, you know what I mean. When you have to go, you have to go! I got some yummy things though. Cheap avocados for this weekend, cookies for work today, straw-ber-ritas....for whenever.
3: Today is Wednesday, and I have to go help with the youth group at church.
4: And THEN, tonight is Game 2 of the playoffs against Houston. See? I just can't get to the gym.
I did do push-ups while hanging half-way out of a too hot tanning bed at lunch. Does that count? Quit imagining how weird it is. You know you do squats or calf raises when you're in a stand up booth. Mm-hmm.
On top of not having time yesterday, it was deeeee-sgusting outside. We had a late cold snap and temps dropped from 78 to 56 overnight, and then continued to fall to 36 by the evening...with drizzle.
|Not taken while driving. I was at the longest red light ever.|
Oh! I do have good news though: I registered today for my next 5k. May 18th, The Speedy Skunk Run.

Wear pants, boots, and a coat to work. Leave coat at office, and change into sandals for lunch. Roll up pants and tie up shirt for commute home, with a/c on. Curse yourself tomorrow morning because you left your boots and coat at work and its now 11 degrees again.
It's time to knock the uuuuhhhhh out of Monday around here.
Did you watch the first OKC Playoff game last night?! It was so fantastic! I was super stoked to have ma man (13) back in the house, but I couldn't be a fan too long, cause we had to put the beat down on him and the Rockets. Game 2 baby! See you Wednesday night.
Today I will buy some cute shoes that I can wear to work that aren't heels. Today I will say something sexy to my man. Today I will smile whenever I feel down. Today I will pray for healing in my life, my community, and the entire world. Today, if I cry, it will be tears of joy for something. Today I will be a conqueror.
Who is your NBA team?
What are you thankful for today?
You may have seen my mini post on Saturday about my dismal race. I do hate being negative, but I was really unhappy with my performance. The breathing problems, the stumbling, the walking, the dramatics....I was a total mess.
Today I want to show you all the awesome stuff leading up to the race!
M ran the race pushing her daughter, and not in a little jogging stroller, but in the fully enclosed bike trailer/stroller! And she beat me! Grrr. She was awesome! She said she was a little stoked that she beat me too. She should be. We aren't racing each other, but a W is a W.

This is the back. Awwww.

Today i gave an effort. Not good. Not bad. Just, an. I'm pretty sure I've developed adult asthma based on the near black-out 50yd before the finish line.
I PR'd but that isn't saying much: still +35min. Yeowza. I'm not a marathoner, yet. I don't compete with others, only myself. I let God carry me. I feel I'm doing all the right things, I'm just not there yet. That's ok.
But disappointing nonetheless. You know.
Happy running today. Good luck Ragnar/SoCal girls, and everyone around the globe.
