Ello Mates! Yes, you are correct. I am Australian today. Cheesy? Perhaps. Do I care? Nah. The makeover is still in progress so just work with me on the site right now. I’m loving how it’s turning out. It’s Marvelous! Let’s join Healthy Diva Eats in having a marvelous Monday shall we? We shall.
Friday I was very stressed and if you remember, I worked out A LOT to calm myself down. When I got home in the evening on my front porch was my BEAUTY BOX!!! I was so excited. It really helped my mood. You’ll have to wait until the 31st to see what was inside but let me just say, it was AWESOME!!!! Learn all about it here and sign up for next month now !
Breakfast yesterday was same oatmeal, blueberries, and coffee.
I got to work at 10:45 and in the refrigerator were two veggie burgers that were left for me and my co worker from an employee appreciation bbq. There was bbq beans along with Cole slaw but I just took the veggie burger for lunch, oh and about 1,000 pickles. It was delicious.
Then I headed to work. I was trying to hard to not stress about not getting my long run in but it was pretty hard. My work was so wonderful marvelous and paid for my dinner at Panera Bread Co… or St. Louis Bread Co as we call it here.
Fugi Chicken Salad. Yum. Yum.
Did you notice… I basically ate free yesterday. Now, THAT is marvelous.
The kids had fun over the weekend and Scarlet caught her first fish.
I couldn’t wait to get them in my arms. I’ve missed them so much and I get so bored without them. We do fun things like… play with dominos. We don’t actually know how to play we just like setting them up and making them fall. Does anyone really know how to play? I don’t think so.
and sit in little chairs and watch YouTube on my cell phone.
When getting all of Scarlet’s baby stuff out for the yard sale it brought many memories back for her and she missed being a baby. Okay maybe I strapped her in there and pretended she was still 1.
and play with water balloons. Yes, I was soaked 5 seconds after this was snapped.
Training Run: After work Josh encouraged me to go for a run with him. I’m not going to lie, I didn’t want to. BUT he poked me enough to get me out the door. We ended up doing 5 miles at a 9 minute pace. If felt nice to run that fast outside with all of the hills around here but for some reason my mind wanted to get under that 9 so bad. I know I’ll be at an 8:30 pace very very soon. When we came home I took a shower and calmed down a little.
It’s so hard not to compare your running to someone else’s. Especially when you are surrounded by amazing runners every single day. I just need to take some deep breaths, meditate on my 8:30 pace and work hard for it. I WILL get there and then I’ll work for 8:00 then 7:30 then 7 and beyond. There’s no limitations and I need to stop letting other people make me feel like there is.
Out of nowhere a quotes came into my mind…
The words of other people are just words, only YOU can give them POWER.That voice Inside of your head that tells you “You can’t,” is a liar.
I am marvelous. Today is marvelous. Some people don’t get the opportunity to run. I need to be grateful for what I can do and be proud of how far I’ve come.
4 days until the big move!!!
So my friends..What was marvelous about your weekend? Does your work ever do anything cool for you?
(BBQ’s and Free Food. Plus we have fun days like flip flop day, hat day, ect)
