Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Pardon my french

Good morning! Boy did 5:30 come fast. Luckily the weather man was wrong (shocker) and we happily ran in 28 degrees, versus the forecasted 16 degrees.  Erin and I walked/ran our five-mile loop which was just what the doctor ordered. Since I ate  my weight in mini wheats yesterday  I was a little nervous about the consequences; everything worked out just fine. As I was about to jump in the shower, it occurred to me that WMM had to happen. There I planked, naked in my living room. It was quite the scene. Eleanor was a little too curious about the situation (if ya know what I mean) so she had to get locked in her kennel.

In the shower I started singing an old gospel song I learned at camp forever ago. That’s right, I spent three summers at a sleep away religious camp when I was in grade school. I LOOOVEEED it. Looking back it was a total cult–we had to attend church three times per day, then go home and read from the bible. I was “saved” as I marched around a bonfire, and had to sign something saying I wouldn’t have sex till marriage. Opps, I fucked that one up. (No pun intended.) The best part about camp is that we sang and sang; I still remember the lyrics and the hand gestures that go along with them. In college that was my late night specialty. I’d bust out a little gospel song and dance as people were taking bong hits and wrestling on the dirty kitchen floor. Ohhh, good times.

So the day to come is pretty relaxed: babysit for two hours then hit up the mall for some returns. Not bad at all. No breakfast has entered my belly yet but I shall post pictures later.

  1. Haha I know what you mean, I was the queen of sleep away camp when I was a kid, and sometimes I definitely find myself singing some of the songs that we learned there. We are having the same ridonkulously cold weather here too – I feel your pain!

  2. How much do you bundle up for a run when it’s so cold?! I need to start running outside and have NO idea what to wear!

    • Hey girlfriend!! You aren’t going to be in Yardley anytime in Feb are you? My sis and I want to plan a blogger meet up!
      So, I wore a tight pair of running pants (like spandex tight), another looser pair of workout pants, a tank top, long sleeve, light fleece and a hat. I was perfect!

      • Sadly, no 😦 Damnit! I’ll be home in April though for 3 weeks and then for good in August!!

        And good job getting up at freaking 5:30!! Seriously! I set my alarm for 5:45 and didn’t get out of bed until 8. Yeah, absolutely pathetic. I’m usually pretty good about working out in the a.m., but am still adjusting to my schedule!

  3. omg I don’t know how you get up that early to workout! I wish I could. I set my alarm but it just doesn’t happen lol. It would be so much more convenient for me if I could though. ugh.

    Do you feel a big difference in your energy levels when you workout in the morning?

    • Well you also have a kid so that makes it harder. I LOVE working out in the am. And yes, it gives me energy both mentally and physically.

  4. I am slowly getting myself back to early…my “normal” is 4:45. Haha this morning I did yoga on the living room rug, the dogs always try to get in my business. I have to stop and yell at them to get on the couch and stay there…very zen behavior, definitely.

  5. hahaha. I LOVE the naked plank. I always have to laugh at myself when I’m about to jump in the shower and forget to do something (i.e. naked plank, naked unloading dishwasher, naked coffee brewing) 🙂
