Flipflops in the Rain


on hiatus

the past two weeks have been a mess of tears, frustrations, conferences, visitors, new employees, canceled obligations and a whirlwind of other activities that have left my brain reeling and my body begging to crash headfirst into bed and not wake up for days. until i can catch a break from the work-related stressors, i prefer not to spend my downtime staring at a computer screen. instead, i’ve been filling my evenings with exercise (yea!) and my weekends with sunshine.

so while i can’t say how long or short this bloggy break will be, i can say i can’t wait to be back, bragging about my fast food fast (seven weeks today!) and gushing about my new veronica mars dvds.

latas.



oh, yeah…

…and i just found out i’m a horrible cat mom. my “fluffy” princess has gained half her body weight in the 11 months i’ve had her. whoops!

i’m now required to feed her less and to exercise her 15 minutes a day. i’m so buying a leash.



endorphins make you happy!

i’m so proud of myself it makes me wanna puke:
i went to the gym last night. for two hours (ish).

and i rocked. (well, i rocked harder than most out-of-shape, slightly round, lazy lil ladies out there.) i ran, i biked (i hate biking), i stretched. and THEN i sweated out all my toxins in the sauna.

and i loved it. (literally — cloud nine all night, which is saying a lot considering the funk i was in the rest of the day because of the rain.)

and i plan to go back tonight. as a reformed tomboy/athlete, i always forget how much i enjoy the overwhelming serenity of a good workout. again, if i just put it out there on the internet, i now have some form of accountability.

on that note, day four of no fast food. amber and i have joined together in the fight against chik fil a. (restaurants with no drive-thru’s don’t count.)

i still don’t know your name, and — even though, you’re personally responsible for getting me in shape — i still hate half downward facing dog.



hot cocoa, not hot yoga…

it’s that time of year. my sunday post is actually how i’ve felt every day this week. i’m grumpy and lethargic and don’t want to do anything. my exercise routine has tapered off to one or two days a week (which honestly is more than it’s been for years, so i deserve some time to sit around and mope!). i’m crawling out of my skin, and i don’t even really want to talk about myself.

effing rain. i need to move to cabo.
