24. Identical Twin. I love photograpy, writing, and running, even when they don't love me back. I've probably had more injuries in my running career than you can think of but I never let these trials get me down. I love challenges and proving the non-believers wrong :)

"Recipe: Bulletproof coffee gummies
1 cup hot fresh brewed organic coffee
1 TBSP grass fed butter
1TBSP Organic coconut oil
1TBSP organic vanilla extract
5 TBSP grass fed gelatin
(Sweeten to taste with stevia, honey or maple syrup)
Blend all in your blender until mixed well and frothy. Pour into candy molds and put in the fridge until set (time varies from 20 minutes to 2 hours). Pop out of the molds and store in a baggy or jar until you are ready to eat them. These travel very well and provide a quick energy boost along with healthy fats and protein!”

(gonna make this with tea. i would think best to let coffee cool down a bit before adding collagen)

Elliptical this morning

I hate that evil machine but it is the closest I can get to painless running. I even woke up 10 mins earlier than yesterday so that’s a plus even though I had to practically drag myself out of bed.

Last night Dave and I went for a walk and it was a really nice change up from just watching tv all night. And we also went grocery shopping so now I’m stocked with yummy noms and we are making tacos tonight, hooray!

Even though work may feel like a stressful mess I’m trying to keep everything else in my life positive, even if running can’t be a big part of it.

Today I went to Subway.

There were these 12 year old boys hanging around. As I got my food and left they were all checking me out like little prepubescent lemurs and one of them said “Can I get your number?” And I turned around and said “Why, you need a babysitter?”

I ran a mile this morning

Couldn’t help myself.  Oops.

But didn’t wake up nearly as early as I wanted and only had time for that mile and then 20 mins or so of walking.

How is it already 9 Pm?

today has been HELL.  Work was just 10x worse than I thought it would be. And I’m working so so so so hard and I just don’t know how everything is going to come together.  I just have to take it one step at a time I guess and just believe that everything is going to fall into place in time if I keep it uppp.

After I came home from work today I was still feeling incredibly anxious and upset so I went for an hour walk and it was wonderfullllll.  I listened to nice music and just smiled and watched the sun set and it was just what I needed.  Then after I even managed to do some strengthening so I’m quite happy with myself.

But I can’t believe it’s already 9 pm and Tuna is crawling all over me begging for food but I still have so much to do!  I’d like to be in bed by 10 but I guess we’ll see…I still need to do the dishes, get food ready for tomorrow, clean up the kitchen and the bedroom a bit, take out the trash and feed the kitties.

ONE TWO THREE GO.  At the latest I want to be in bed by 10:30!  I would like to attempt and actually wake up early tomorrow morning.
