To start, I wanted to give a huge shout out and thank you to the anonymous commenter on my last post who told me:
“You nee to get some serious moisturizer and a good hair conditioner too! You look so OLD!!!!”
I wish this person left a name because they can’t spell the word “need” and I’d like to hook them up with a tutor or community college or something.
I can’t tell you how uplifting and constructive that comment was! Thank you for taking the time to add some positivity to the world. And, even better that you remained anonymous because that shows your true character and willingness to be accountable for the things that you say and write.
And, if it was a joke from one of my friends, you ROCK and ignore all of that crap above. Erika, was that you getting me back just because I stole your wedding ring? Lighten up.
Moving on. Yes, for those observant types, I removed the penis banana picture from my last post. Do you ever wake up in the night and think maybe you’ve crossed a line? I mean, seriously, I cross lines everyday on this blog and I’m not sure what a banana mimicking a penis would concern me, but at 2:00 a.m. it did. But, for some reason now at 11:10 a.m. it doesn’t, so here it is again. If it offends you, just think of it as a piece of fruit with some frosting:
I ran this morning. Let the angels sing. It hurt like a mother. But since I like to Run Like a Mother, I thinking Hurting Like a Mother might be okay too. Maybe not. I have been instructed to not run if it hurts where the fracture was. It does not. So, I kept running bits at a time for a total of 12 minutes over 3 miles. My body is readjusting to this thing called running. Running’s hard on your body. Hasn’t your grandma or some random stranger or a physical therapist told you that?
12 minutes. I’ll take it.
The winner of the Healthy Living Giveaway Grace was who said:
♥ my resolution this year was not lose X amount of weight. it was to loose weight and be healthy by working out daily and eating right. this year i have been cooking most of my breakfast, lunch and dinners!
♥ to keep track i am keeping a calendar with my goals for the month and highlighting them once they've been accomplished. i will also be running at least one race each month for the rest of the year. i have list and am going to cross them off as completed!
♥ to start of the year, i joined John Bingham's 100 day challenge. Its 100 days of at least 30 minutes of movement. After i reach 100 days, I am going to do 100 more and then 156 more to complete a whole year! 356 days sounds like so much, but by breaking it up--it sounds so easy!
No, she did not win because she used cute little hearts. I love how she breaks her goals down into manageable pieces. Her aspirations for healthy living are admirable and will require tons of discipline, yet they are achievable and measurable. Grace, email me at email@example.com and I’ll get you your prize.
I almost picked Chris K who said:
Just one more example of men being discriminated against on girly runner blog giveaways. No fair. How about giving away a whoopie cushion or one of those pens when you turn it upside down the ink flows down and the girl is naked.
Thanks Chris. Did you know I modeled for one of those pens?
Off to get some new hair conditioner,
