Monday my credit card number was compromised and fraudulent purchases made on top of an incredibly crazy stressful work day.
Tuesday I broke the Tupperware containing my lunch.
This morning at my follow up appointment with my general doctor after my heart surgery, she lovingly pointed out the 6 pounds I gained over the holidays. I countered that no sane person is going to say no to cookies that only come around once a year and I'm back to healthy eating plus running 4 days a week, thank you very much.
Next she mentioned that the heart problem I had has a small chance of re-occurrence as the pathway closed could just make a new one. Fantastic.
Then she pointed out that I'm now 28 year's old and asked when I'm going to have a baby.
HAPPY WEDNESDAY! Excuse me while I find a straw and steal the Gentleman Jack bottle from my boss's office.

For my birthday Nick got me new running shoes AND a Garmin which I'm super stoked to have gotten. I was hoping to get the watch for two reasons:
1. Doing intervals and monitoring speed is easy on a treadmill. Running outside I'd use the Run Keeper App through my phone which I wear on an arm band to track mileage and pace. However I can't continually monitor my time/pace since it only updates me at the completion of a mile and I can't see the screen. The training program I'm using incorporates sprint workouts and specific timed runs. Thus the watch makes my life so much easier to stay consistent in my training.
2. Since I had heart surgery and was fully cured/cleared, it's probably a prudent idea to track my heart rate when I exercise. So now I'll get to wear a heart monitor strapped to my chest that will be recording for ya know, emergencies or freak heart issues.
Because of the weather (oh hey Antarctica, didn't realized I moved to you!) I've been on the treadmill in the basement this week. I love my treadmill for interval work outs but for steady running I'm good for about 2 miles before I hate my life. At least running steadily outside I'm planning my route, trying to not get hit by cars, and have a kick ass playlist to keep me moving. In my basement I'm thinking of all the excuses to jump off and just do something else more inviting like snuggle my dog.
On a sort of unrelated note I decided I was watching too much Netflix and not doing enough reading as of the end of last year (Sons Of Anarchy WTF! WHY IS SEASON 6 NOT ON THERE YET?!) So I've also made it my resolution to read before bed instead of watching
Multi-tasking at its finest my friends.
