Don’t mind if I do!

September 4, 2008

I haven’t run since Monday and it’s killing me! Two days of no running make Bethie something-something…go crazy? Don’t mind if I do! At least I managed to fit in some sit-ups, push-ups, and a wall sit. I ❤ wall sits (because I’m crazy!).

My excuses:

Tuesday: I couldn’t sleep Tuesday night. I got less than 2 hours of sleep and developed a horrible stomachache before morning. I don’t think a run would have been a good idea, so this day off was justifiable.

Today: My husband’s birthday. Sure, choosing to make my husband French toast for breakfast over running at 6:00AM makes sense. But not running this evening? I really should have made time for it. *sigh* At least I did something today, right? Right.

Tomorrow most certainly is another day and I’ve promised myself a good, long, morning run. No excuses. I just love morning runs. It feels so awesome to go to work knowing that I have x number of miles under my belt already. It’s as if I’ve already accomplished something so the rest of the day is just icing on the cake.

On a side note, I’m sick of hot dogs and hamburgers. After last weekend’s BBQ, which was lightly attended due to rain, we were left with crudload (plus or minus one) of BBQ meats. Because the freezer is filled with meat, we are unable to freeze the additional crudload of hotdog and hamburger buns. I HATE wasting food, so we have been consuming hot dogs and hamburgers at an alarming rate. I don’t know if it’s the sodium, fat, or tedium content of these dinners, but it’s really weighing me down. However, this does make me all the more excited for my husband’s celebratory birthday dinner this weekend. One thing’s for sure: I will NOT be ordering a burger!
