I am typing this post on my new tablet!! While I am excited about it, it also caused me some stress. My dying phone meant I needed to get a new one. I was on my mom’s phone plan but when she moved to a different state with her husband our carrier didn’t have good service in the small town she moved to so she went on her husband’s plan. So when getting a new phone it was time to get my own phone plan. Signing up for another bill and plan is always gut wrenching for me, Costco threw in this tablet for $10/month. I took the deal and am slowly relaxing but it took some time. Being an adult really sucks sometimes lol. This is the last bill my mom was still paying for me and now I am taking it over……oh adulthood.
Well on to more fun topics, April’s barkbox arrived!!
It is baseball themed
My roommates dog was certainly excited about it!
Work was busy today but I got through it.
Now I am relaxing and watching some TV. Tomorrow 8 miles are in the plan. I might have to split it up into 2 runs since I have to work tomorrow at the farm and I don’t want to run too long in the dark.
Woke up at 3:30 this morning!!!!! Though i laid in bed and played on my phone and cuddled with the dog until 4. Hit the gym and did 20 min the water.
With workout 1 done i changed for workout 2
I knew it was going to be a hard day when i rolled out of bed this morning and was sore all over from training and running yesterday.
Spinning was good
My waterbottle was at that point where it was starting to get gross so i broke down and out it in the dish washer. Bought gatorade at the gym
My new favorite flavor, glacial frost.
The delicious cheese i think i mentioned yesterday.
Today was ice cream sundae day at work
I tried to be good and not go overboard. The first half was delicous then i started feeling horrible but eat these kinds of sweets so infrequently that i forced myself to finish it and felt bloated and gross for like 2 hours. Old habits die hard.
My new vitamins arrived. I track my food in myfitnesspal and one of the things it has shown me is that i never hit my daily calcium goal so i will start taking these a few days a week to combat that a bit.
Barkbox came today!!!!! I love opening these boxes!!!
It is always interesting to see what Artemis is going to like toy wise and what she is going to ignore. Anything Artemis doesn’t want Jasper, my roommates dog, will eventually adopt as his own.
I am feeling a little lonely tonight. I miss having a boyfriend, i miss having my girls around for dinner dates and coffee dates. I am doing a lot better with my breakup and getting back out there but some nights i still get really sad and lonely. Mostly when i disappointed by the state of men and dating today and get depressed that I’ll never find someone.
This too shall pass.
Well thats it on my end.
How was your day?
As you’ll see in my insane videos i was supposed to run my 2nd 5k in the winter 5k race series but didn’t.
As you’ll see in this video i did like 2 minutes after i got off the treadmill i was a little out of it. Directly post hard run my brain is a little foggy. My 5k that was in the 41:00 range was in December not January as this is January lol.
So i actually only beat my best time by 13 seconds but i will take it! Any improvement is improvement.
It didnt help that im not feeling 100% and that i may have eatin pizza last night…….and this morning.
We got our barkbox!!!
She is already liking the hippie toy.
We did a lot of sleeping and cuddling today which was really nice.
It was sooooo sweet!!!!
My trusty garmin……i LOVE it!!! I would like to take another minute to thank my aunt for in essence being my sponser and helping me finance it.
How was your Saturday?
If you have run a 5k what is your PR?
Well yesterday was the first day back after the holidays and first work day of the new year. After that snow ‘storm’ aka dusting everything got icy and froze.
I had to slowly roll each window down and break the ice layer.
The parking lot at work was pretty much empty lol.
But as it defrosted my view was beautiful!!
Today’s running tip.
About 2 years ago i subrscribed to one of those monthly delivery boxes like bark box but full of girly products that were also eco friendly. It was $15/month called eco emi. I am still working my way through stuff lol. I am almost out of face wash and I keep forgetting to pick some up…thank goodness for these little extras
On the dating front I have started and stopped talking to 2 guys so far. I think we stopped talking because i have tattoos and want more………one for sure we stopped talking because i want sleeves one day and i think the other one pretty much for the same reason because all of a sudden he said he had a change of heart and was conservative……and no mom, we weren’t talking dirty or anything!!!!!!
The single photo i had sent was of the vine tattoo on my foot, nothing kinky about that. Apperently it’s gonna be reaaaaaal fun this time around.
How was your first day back to work?
Sunday morning my roommate convinced me to get up and go to yoga.
I am glad i went. These are the days when it is really good to have a workout partner. It made me introspective which made me a little depressed but i pulled myself out of it.
Our second Barkbox came!!!
I love this!! You put treats in it and the dog can slowly chew them out.
I got a treat tin to out all her treats in!! I’m stoked about that!
This is the perfect toy for Artemis, the head is a tennis ball and the body is ropes and squeakers. Artemis can’t have anything with stuffing because she will eat it and get sick.
I swear this looks like a slim jim.
I bought probiotics from Amazon because i caught a stomach bug that is going around. Those came on Saturday so i am starting to take those to balance me out.
I did a bit of organizing and decorating of my room. I need to get settled.
How was your weekend?
