Never fails. When temperatures reach the 80s, I lose my appetite. I have had a green monster for dinner for the past 3 nights. But I make sure to stuff them full of stuff like spinach, cherries, yogurt, chia and other goodies so that I get some nutritional value from them. Oh, summer.
Another fail? Well, with this new “no pressure running” that I’m committing myself to, I am not so stressed to run. So whenever something comes up that might keep me from running, I usually take it. Needless to say, I have not been running as much as I would like to. It’s not that bad, because I spent two evenings this week technology and run free—just hanging out with my husband.
It’s not that I don’t want to run, because I do, but I just want to run barefoot, but I know that would be a stupid and just asking for another stress fracture. Or three. I’ve got a date with the Brooks tonight, but you don’t you, FiveFingers, you’re my love. It’s just going to be a long, slow breakup with my sneakers.
Want to know a not-fail (yes, real word. Don’t question me.)? Well, it has to prefaced with another Abby Normally fail: I stink at taking pills. I bought some Calcium with Vitamin D and decided to carry it around in my purse so that I wouldn’t forget to take them. That was in February. The pills are still in my purse and I think I’ve taken 2. Thus why I don’t take a multivitamin. Oops. Well, I wanted to start taking iron again, but given my poor track record when it comes to taking pills, I was a little concerned about actually taking it. And then I found a solution.
Haven’t missed a day yet! And this bottle is in my purse with the calcium pills (which I still don’t take).
This just goes to prove my theory that I am, indeed, still 5 years old.
Out! I’ve got a date with my Brooks. They have trouble letting go.
