I use this day for confessions, and maybe even a couple of rants...
So here we go #areyoureadyforthis
Let me put it this way, we all wanted a dog - I just wanted a certain breed, that's why we have Alaska the Moose - And, I love her, there is no doubt about it. However, 4:15am, it is COLD outside. That is the time I wake my butt up, and take her on a lengthy walk. Why so early? Because I want to get to the gym by 5:30a - and get done, home and on the road to work no later than 7:20a. #iknowisoundcrazy ANYWHOOOO - So, this morning, the thermostat read 9 degrees. IT was 9 DEGREES this morning, and with the wind, it felt much colder. #frozeninsideandout Well, Moose just loves it, wagging her tail, letting the cool wind hit her in the face, she even laid down for a minute on the snow in our backyard. The whole time I was thinking #isthiswhathypothermiafeelslike
Today, is my weekly rest/off day from the training plan. I can tell you, that after my artic walk with our pup - I made a grocery list for tonight's shopping, and then - I took the warmest, longest bath ever. #wishihadbubbles It was SO nice. I was able to leisurely get dressed, do my hair and makeup - stretch out my sore muscles from last nights 2 hours of martial arts #soremusclesaretheworst I had packed my lunch and everything I needed to bring to work, so there was no kitchen scrambling to do - - however, I was a little too leisurely - - - I came up the stairs, #likeaboss , and saw it was almost 7:30a - EEEEK... flew into the car - - but, I still look like a #supermodel today. #notreally #agirlcandream
I am feeling really wonderful this week, like I am really hitting my stride. #nopunintended I guess the time I spent away from my schedule, that my husband calls #thechubbyweeks , was all for the best. I have felt very relaxed, and now that I have vowed to #endfoodshamingin2015 , I am no longer feeling paranoid, scared, or self conscious about packing my food for work, OR what I am eating when I am home. Over the past couple of days I have been documenting my lunches at work, using the hashtag: #endfoodshamingin2015 - and I hope that you guys can do the same - I think it's a wonderful idea. As women, as a culture - we need to stop focusing on EXACTLY what is going in our mouths - stop linking the nutritional value of a meal to your personal value and worth. SO, next time you eat something that you think is DELICIOUS, no matter what it is - take a foodie pic for instagram - use the hashtag - Let's see if we can make this a movement! #callmeafoodieactivist
Happy Wednesday Friends!
