I am typing this as we are passing through Vegas, I drank way too much water this morning and now I am suffering the consequences (we like to take the least amount of stops as possible on road trips) and I am getting a little antsy.
I did do something awesome and woke up an hour earlier than I was going to (5:45) to get an hour walk with an incline in on my treadmill. I did not want to be my usual road trip self and ask Billy every five minutes to pull over so I can stretch out and do a few laps around the car so I wanted to get a little bit of walking in on my ‘rest’ day.
It felt great to just walk. I loved it. Mainly because I got to watch Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss edition on Hulu at the same time! If you haven’t seen that show, it is your homework to watch it today okay!?!
Yes, that was me crying while walking on my treadmill at 6 a.m. because of the amazing inspiration these people are to me. A lot of them have been through SO MUCH and it is a much more realistic approach to weight loss than the Biggest Loser.
Sorry if this post doesn’t make sense but I am googling on my phone if anyone has ever died from their bladder exploding at the same time I am writing this.
We had a giftcard to Runner’s Corner and I got all this gear yesterday for 30 bucks. Boom.
I really get an adrenaline rush from getting a good deal.
I LOVE Shot Bloks but they talked me into trying chomps and PowerBar’s new gu-like product. Gu’s make me gag but they promised me that this new PowerBar thing is more like gatorade but just a little bit thicker. I may sue the worker if the taste or texture is anything like Gu’s.
What is your favorite FUEL during a run?
-Skittles but I guess they don’t have electrolytes or something and they aren’t the best option, so I guess I will say Shot Bloks.
What was the LONGEST road trip you have ever taken?
-When I was little we went on a month vacation all over the US by car. It was awesome and we would stop along the way every now and then and my mom would run up and down a hill for a few minutes…..you try a month long road trip with five little ones…I don’t know what they were thinking.
Have you seen Extreme Makeover: Weight loss Edition?!?! What did you think?
