Arguing with Myself

Yesterday started with a 4 mile run and a little over one mile with the girls.  Since I have allowed myself to take walk breaks, I noticed yesterday that I was talking myself into needing a break. 


Luckily, I have my Garmin heart rate monitor to keep me honest.  At one point my brain was saying, “AhMahGah, I’m so tired. I can’t breath. I need a break.” When I looked at my heart rate, I was only at 173.  Ha! Not even up to my normal steady state pace rate (which is 176). So I started running again!

It’s amazing how much energy I suddenly had! Stupid brain.

This is where listening to music would come in handy.  I could spend less time arguing with myself and just get lost in a song. Unfortunately, I have only ran with music a few times and I get a little motion sickness.



The girls laid next to me while I put my feet up the wall.  They were worn out too.


After getting everyone moving around here, I headed to Pilates.  It felt so good while being super challenging.


After eating some lunch, we headed over to my sister’s new house.  I haven’t been over there since I helped her move and it looks so nice!  She is very crafty and DIY, so I got lots of good ideas. It was like walking through a real life Pinterest!


Meal #1: Gluten free oats with protein powder


Meal #2: Two eggs and two slices of gluten free toast. I almost forgot to snap a picture.  Inhaled the other egg and toast before I remembered.


Meal #3: Snacked on tortilla chips and french onion dip.

Meal #4: Chicken thighs and ice burg lettuce with blue cheese dressing and bacon crumbles.


We wrapped up the day with watching Big Brother. Oooooh, it was a good one! I won’t ruin it in case you had to record it, but it was exciting!

Daylight is finally peaking out, time to lace my running shoes. See you tomorrow, Friends!


  1. Oh my goodness! That Frank is unbelievable! How does he do it?! I LOVED Brittany's farewell video. Ha! That was good!
