Yesterday I attempted to write a post but things were not going well.
It was an emotional day. There were a few reasons that I won’t bore you with and great scott, I was a bit of a disaster. Anyway, the whole post started to sound like one giant whiny mess. So I hit delete.
Last week was okay in the work out department. Certainly not great and it was yet another reminder I need to kick my own ass into gear. I can’t wait for someone to do it for me. And even if they attempted I can picture myself rebelling against them. Example: If Jillian Michael’s was my trainer I would want to high tail it out of there. Then purposefully eat donuts. In my sweatpants while binging on Netflix. Self-destructo right here.
Anyway, do you also remember when I told Spring to get it together? What was I thinking?! We had some toasty, humid days and I came to my senses that 50’s in May ARE FREAKING AWESOME when you are a runner. Saturday morning I ventured out for a quick run before traveling to visit friends. It very quickly turned into a run/walk scenario. It was gross. Last night? Same deal. I will also admit, I’m a complete dodo bird. I didn’t bring water with me on either run. I know, just plain silly. I’ve been carrying my phone with me (it’s in an otterbox case and won’t fit in anything I currently have) so carrying water is a bit tough. Today I finally ordered an arm band on amazon. I thought long and hard about the flip belt and even ordered one. I don’t think it’s for me though.
There was some other exercising last week but nothing of note. I’m trying a little something this week but before I go into detail I want to see if I accomplish it. This past weekend I ventured down to visit some dear friends. We haven’t been together as a group in ages so it was wonderful to catch up on all the happenings of life. All three of them have little ones so I got in some toddler and baby snuggles.
Scary moment on the way down there – a semi decided to move into my lane right in front of me. I was boxed in on either side by other cars so I had to hit the breaks. I despise driving on the freeway. I have no idea where this defensive driving business came from and I was extremely proud of myself. When I arrived at my friend’s house, I had a delayed panic attack. Haha, at least it wasn’t while I was driving!
The next morning we went to this cutie-patootie cafe for breakfast. It had all kinds of accommodating foods and I even got gluten-free toast with my omelet! I’m still thinking about that bread, man.
Alright, this is the end of my post. I’m debating running tonight. We shall see how motivated I am after I go to the grocery store.
Does anyone else have their motivation crushed by the grocery store like I do?
