Reason #1 that I absolutely love running at home:
I roll out of bed, brush my teeth and run. I don’t have to worry about the random birds nest on my head or the mascara that is smeared all over my face. PS this is also random…I am loving running in t-shirts. I don’t know why but they are so soft and comfortable.
Reason #2 I love running at home: My Burt’s Bees has a permanent home. I have threatened Billy that if he moves it there will be consequences. I might have applied chapstick 4 times during my run this morning. In case I run out of that beautiful yellow tube there is an emergency stash hidden behind one of the loose bricks in my wall.
Something that saves me 2:31 each morning is the fact that my school offers chocolate milk. At home we just stir in Hershey’s syrup into our milk because it is cheaper that way. I usually end up spilling and it takes forever to clean up etc. but on school days I just get one of these cartons. Drinking it with a straw is even better.
I started watching the premiere of Biggest Loser this morning and I am so excited. The theme this season is NO MORE EXCUSES. I think this is the best theme ever. At the beginning the contestants told what their biggest excuses have been over the years as to why they didn’t work out or eat healthy. They were all very common excuses but I love that the show is trying to prove to people that those excuses aren’t going to fly.
My Most Common Excuses and Responses:
1. I am tired. Answer: I will have so much more energy the rest of the day if I get my sweat on.
2. My bed is so warm. Answer: My body will be warm once I start moving for a few minutes.
3. I don’t want to have to shower. Answer: Then don’t.
I don’t know why my brain is all over the place and I am just typing whatever I am thinking but last night I had a dream that we had one of those jumping snakes in our backyard and he was incredibly fast. He chased me for at least an hour. I made Billy walk me out to my car this morning and I wore the tallest boots I could find in order to lower my chances of getting bitten.
