Emotional

Friday, July 13, 2012

Yesterday was a great day. No, I didn't get my manicure/pedicure done. Instead, my daughter and I went to Regina for a day trip. Shopping. We got my niece and two nephews some gifts. My niece will be 1, and my younger nephew will be 2. The party is on July 22 for both of them. I got them mostly clothes. Mom and dad are on a very limited income, and the kids have plenty of toys. I did get them each a little toy to go in the gift bag. I also got some for my older nephew too. They never get a chance to get into the larger cities and pick up osh kosh for the kids, so I got them all something from there. Good thing it was on sale. Two pairs of jeans, two hoodies, a denim jumper skirt, 10 snap up undershirts, and three t-shirts all came to about $90.


A bunch of cutie pies. They all look so much like their dad. Poor Elizabeth. lol

I called my mom to make sure I got the right sizes. My niece is a tiny peanut, only in size 12-18months. My younger nephew (the 2 year old) is already in size 4. His older brother is in 5-6 so I got him size 6. I got the two boys carpenter jeans. They have been helping their dad with renovations to the farmhouse, so I figured why not.

My daughter was looking for art supplies, so we took a chance on a craft store I remembered from years ago. Luckily, it was still there, and they had a great art section. She got all sorts of stuff. And now she knows what the prices are, so if we go into town when she's working, she can let us know what she wants us to pick up. The canvases there are about 1/3 the price she's ever been able to find them at in Calgary, so she's really happy about that.

So all in all it was a great day. Nice drive. A chance for us to visit. She got some supplies. I got the kids gifts done. I got a couple of skirts. It was a good day.

Today I went running. I finished my training day strong. Really pushed myself. Now I'm feeling great.

Lee on the other hand is not. He is so hung over. He can't get up off the couch. He was drunk before we got home. I think he drove his truck home like that. He told me he didn't. That he came home and started drinking.

The sad part is I know he's lying to me. I know he was drinking earlier. I know he'd had too much to drive home. I am sick n tired of that server allowing him to drive home like that. What the HELL is wrong with her? This is the same lady who's son has behavioral issues linked to food allergies. So what does she do? She brings him home a treat - McDonalds. THE KID IS ALLERGIC TO EVERYTHING IN THEIR MENU. WHEAT AND SUGAR BEING THE TWO MAIN THINGS SHES FEEDING HIM. And then she has the nerve to try to buddy up to me to complain about how hard it is on her and her son and she can't deal with it and it's only a few treats, and and and.

GIVE ME A BREAK. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT KIDS HEALTH. YES IT'S HARD TO CHANGE, BUT IS HE NOT WORTH IT???

Mind you, I guess it's none of my business. It's her life. Her kid. I'm walking away. She'd just better never ask me for advice/help on the subject again. Or complain about it to me ever again. I've got better ways to waste my time. Like bitching in my blog about how much it all pisses me off ;)

Time to get my day started. I was going to wait for Lee, but it's looking like he's not going to get moving anytime soon. I've gotta get to Sasktel and look into changing my cell phone over. I need to look into a cell phone booster - I think they are on sale. All stuff to get ready to start my new job soon. I go for pre-employment testing on Monday. I'm not worried about that. I'm fit, I don't drink, and I've never done drugs. So it's all good.

Hope you all have a great day, who ever is reading this.

Today's Kick in the Butt

Friday, July 13, 2012

I took yesterday off. Now if I want to reach my goals, I need to step it back up.



No more waiting for a miracle to happen. I'm gonna go out there and get one for myself.





It takes so little right now to get my motivation going in full swing. To get me on the right track for a day full of the right decisions. To motivate me to make every minute, every decision count. All it takes is a half hour of hard work. Once I've done that, I'm rearing to go with the rest of my day. I want to make every decision count to back up what I did that morning. Those endorphins are great little things, aren't they.



And what is today's step? It is to get on my shoes and get out there and run. C25K Week3Day3. Time to kick it's butt to the curb. 6min run, 1min walk repeat 4 times. Finish with a 2min run. You can do this. Heck, you finished the San Francisco Marathon last fall! This is a walk in the park compared to that right???

Okay, so no comparing with who I was. Yes, the 6min runs are getting harder. But I think my heart/lungs have adjusted again. I'm sure I can do it. The third set is always the hardest. Then the break between the third and fourth is only 30seconds. I know. What a cruel joke! But I KNOW I CAN DO IT!. I just need to believe in myself. And get out there before the heat of the day hits.



I'm not going to let this challenge stop me. I am stronger than it.





***UPDATE******
Back from my run. I kicked W3D3's butt. Done strong. 2.5miles. Avg HR was 143. Came home dripping wet. I usually don't sweat water, but I really pumped it out today. I usually get a crusty salty coating when I exercise.

    Way to go! I've discovered that it's the "hard parts" where I'm actually growing and getting stronger. If it's not hard, I'm not working out hard enough.

    Wow, I'm impressed that you ran the SF Marathon! I LOVE SF and married my husband there at the beautiful city hall. There was a women's marathon happening during the time we were there--it was pretty inspirational to see Union Square crammed full of fantastic women of all ages, shapes, and sizes there to run a marathon! Lots of pink, though....You can do this running stuff, you're a seasoned PRO! Training of all sorts is really a mind game. The hardest part for me is getting out the door! Get going, have a great run! emoticon emoticon

Day 10 Prebiotic - July 13

Friday, July 13, 2012

Hmmmm. Friday the 13th. I didn't even notice until I saw that on facebook this morning...

Anyhow, I'm still feeling pretty good. No major changes to anything. No body aches. No pains. My mood is good today.

Let's hope I can keep this good feeling going, right through my morning run.
