Mr. Treadmill stared at me all morning long.  Taunting me saying, “Think of how much fun we could have together running the hills of Boston while watching the Biggest Loser.”

I knew better and reminded myself the importance of RECOVERY DAYS.  No use doing a killer workout and then not letting your muscles rebuild themselves.   Recovery is just as important as our workouts.  I know my body needs one rest day a week…remember, everyone is different.

It’s all about compromise people.  So instead of running I foam rolled like a demon and then spent some quality time on the treadmill by working on my running journal and inspiration board while watching Biggest Loser on Hulu.

This is how to make a relationship work.  I also finished off my chocolate milk straight from the jug while I worked.


FYI Christmas Pj’s, a birds nest for hair and a jacket that you have worn 574 times and yet to wash, is the cool thing to do.  That is how you score a hot husband……um, how did I get him?Oh yeah, I have a sweet spirit.

Lunch was protein and nutrient packed.  Day 2 of upping my protein is right on track.  Billy is watching his words because he knows I could take him now with all this body building protein.

Tuna galore, spinach, guac, cheese, red onions, black beans and corn.  It was a fiesta plus I added half a bottle of salsa on afterwards.  I may have stolen it from my mom’s food storage, don’t tell her k.  Yes, that is a family sized serving bowl.  It’s normal.


We are off to church followed by family dinner at the sister’s house.  I am craving children time.  Weird, I know, but I haven’t been around kids for a while and I feel like we think a lot alike….(ie candy, movies like Tangled, hide and go seek in the dark, trampoline love and no desire to brush my hair).  Why do I have to be 25?
