It will be fun. Mondays are kind of scatterbrained all over the place wacky for me. I don’t know why. It takes me a whole day to get my act together. I embrace it. So lets have a post that’s kind of all over the place, tangential (is that a word? I like it) with no rhyme or reason to it. sound good? good.
Workout – based on having to do 8 “easy” miles. I rebelled. I didn’t want to run 8 miles at home. I didn’t want to run 8 miles at the gym either. I did 3 miles at about 8.1ish mph on the treadmill. I can’t be certain about anything on my basement dwelling mill, especially the pace. hoping it really was 3 miles. then I hopped on the stairmaster for 10 minutes of level 20 speed interval, back to tread for the same 3 again and back to stairmaster for same speed interval. did you follow? all over the place. just like my Monday. I tell myself the stairmaster speed interval at that level will be good hill training. really. I make that kind of logical jump all the time. I also tell myself that I would be a superstar model if I wanted to be. I just make a daily choice to be a stay at home mom. for real. who wouldn’t want this sweaty mess.
I’m sure crazy day Monday has something to do with the fact that Mondays are not nearly as fun as Sundays. What is fun about starting your day with a huge load of this
I chose to let it sit there over night. If I had folded it Sunday night – it would have ruined the perfection of the lazy day that Sunday is. I let Monday take that one. But, Monday also has lots of time with this little cutie
She obviously didn’t read my “how to do eye makeup post“. but she looks darn cute. I might start doing my eyes like that. the shadow on the brow. special.
and then this little banana. we can’t seem to stop dressing Luke up and making him wear funny things. too much fun to torment a 2 year old. You should try it. but get your own 2 year old. this ones taken.
Monday also has mail. sunday does not. In the mail today came some fun things for this mama. I ordered some running books last week. I thought I should maybe start educating myself a little bit on a “sport” that I seem to enjoy. enjoy seems like a funny way to put it. “sport” also seems like a funny way to refer to running. either way. I guess I enjoy the sport.
I don’t know which one to read first. life is full of tough decisions. I’ve been wanting to get “the Runner’s Body” for awhile. I’ll be happy to have that as a reference, I think. “Mile Markers” and “The Mind Body Method of Running by Feel” were recommended by a couple of other blogs I had read. There are so many running books out there. It’s hard to know where to start and what to read. I think this should get me going. I have no idea when I am going to read them. I think I might just sleep on them for now and see what I can absord.
More tomorrow on a detox/cleanse/get rid of all the toxins in the bod, that the hubs and I are doing and an out of this world dessert. you must make. and I will leave you hanging so that you can’t make it until I tell you about it. hehehe. not nice. but that’s what’s gonna happen. my apologies.
And what do we think about this….I took a picture of the picture in my mag. fancy shmancy.
I saw this in the back of MY Runner’s World mag. I actually had to look to see who it was. Took me a minute to realize it was Kate Gosselin. I don’t get it. I don’t get her. NOT her biggest fan – couldn’t really stand watching her on TV, but she doesn’t even look the same now…I guess she looks kind of fantastic. good for her. and she runs a lot. very good for her. and I kind of like her sneaks. a lot. guess I was just surprised to see her in the running mag?! more power to her.
Are Mondays a little whacky for you? Or do you get right into your weekly routine?
Do you like to eat bananas?
Did/do you like Kate plus 8?
How was everyones weekend?!?!
