Hello! How’s it going? This morning I had a major fail in an attempt to do some speed work. Bah! It’s hard enough for me to make myself do it without extra obstacles.
I do speed work on this flat part of the running path that is exactly a half a mile long. It’s perfect for 800s.
This never happens so I don’t think I need to find a new route just yet but I’m thinking of heading to a track next time. It would make me feel so fancy.
Since I was foiled on my run I turned around and did a few miles in the other direction. Then, I hit the gym for a strength class.
I had two breakfasts this morning. Sometimes that’s what you gotta do.
First, I had Pumpkin Granola with yogurt.
Then, some eggs and toast.
After the gym I ran some errands and almost died. DIED.
I cannot even handle this baby koala costume. Get me a baby! (My niece wouldn’t fit in this since it only goes to 12 months.)
Lunch was a massive salad with some random new Thousand Island dressing I bought recently. I don’t know why I would buy that kind since I would NOT order it ever, but it’s good. That is Sriracha and ketchup too.
My table is completely covered with an organization project so I took a picture on the chair. Someone was very interested to check it out…
See? I’m going through my make-up because it’s a chaotic mess. All this stuff was just thrown on my bathroom counter and it was stressing me out.
So, I did what any responsible “type C” personality adult would do in that situation – I ignored it for 4 months until it got worse and then decided to clean it. From there I moved everything to the kitchen table where I ignored it for 24 hours until I realized I need the table to eat
Eating > My lack of discipline
So I finally went through it all today. While having a snack.
Things you shouldn’t REPEAT:
Now onto the big butt advice… I’m sporting my new ombre leggings today. I highly recommend ombre leggings or pants for anyone that has an area of their body that might be bigger than the other parts near it.
While I try to embrace my shape I HATE feeling self conscious with what I’m wearing. You just end up pulling at your clothes or not standing tall or awkwardly standing against the wall so no one looks at your back (is that just me?).
Ombre leggings or pants are kind of cool because we all know black is slimming. Well, if the darkest part of your pants is on your biggest body part and the color gets lighter toward your smaller parts it kind of creates a more balanced look. (Read: My butt and thighs are a lot bigger than my calves so this helps it look a little more like these body parts should belong on one person and I’m not Mr. Potato Head or something.)
Question: Do you think I should get the koala costume for my cat? How sad would that be?
