Yesterday’s workout:

I should wear my Garmin at work to track how far I walk

Ran 5.32 miles around the spooktacular hills of Wildwood in 39.04 min.

I had every excuse in the book to avoid running yesterday. I had a headache all day. I wore my boots that weren’t necessarily made for walking. I only had 50 minutes between when I got home and when I had to take my kid to gymnastics. And this was the irresistible entertainment going on at my house:


Forget Gangnam Style. Bring on the buttbomb!

Which reminds me. When you have a husband who is gone every otherish 24 hours, creative parenting skills rule. To kill time, we do things like go to the market for two things:


No, I didn’t let the girls dress me.

We also turn our kitchen into a swanky club:

And, yes. You can come join our dance parties, but only if you, too, took a folk, social, and square dance class in college and/or can verify that you have superb dance skills through official transcripts. This is the real deal, people.

Back to my run, I went for a couple reasons… partly because I had downed a double-espresso at 1, and I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to fall asleep if I didn’t get moving. But I also wanted to test out the theory that “experts” suggest getting some exercise can elevate your mood and make your body feel better.

Experts, shmexperts. Maybe they do know a thing or two. I felt SO much better after running AND my headache was completely gone!

What excuses do you make to avoid getting your ‘cise in for the day?

Later that night, The Sunshine tried to become one with my blanket:


You can’t see me if I can’t see you.

Who do you share your blanket with? (Incorrect grammar from an English teacher. Whatever.)
