Thank you all for your very supportive comments on my last post. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate it!
Last week Adam and I treated ourselves to silly gifts. Adam watched a YouTube video of some girl constructing a mini burger and fries candy set and decided he really wanted to try this out so a couple of days ago these things arrived on our doorstep:
^ A mini sushi kit, a mini donut kit and a mini hamburger candy set! Adam made the sushi kit the other night. It tasted like super sweet gummy candy but the consistency of the sushi and rice was somehow pretty true to life! So bizarre!
I went the more adult route and bought myself some pens.
I love pens, notebooks, sticky notes, highlighters and all other office supplies! When I saw the purple pen that said “so well composed” I just had to have it!
On the running front I’ve been spending a lot of time with the treadmill. Okay, well “a lot” is an exaggeration but I’ve done my last two runs in the gym. It may have something to do with this weather:
93*F just doesn’t get me excited about running outdoors. Last summer I did A LOT of treadmill running during marathon training. This year I said I wasn’t going to do any of my runs on the treadmill… but you know how that goes. By the time I get around to running after work the world is just a hot hot oven!
The good news is that my loooooonnng two hour commute into work has finally come to an end. That means I won’t have to leave my house at 7:25 in the morning anymore and I also won’t get home at 7:45 at night. Hallelujah!
My number one goal for the next 30 days is to make morning running a habit. I’ve never loved morning running but I see the advantages and I want to give it a real try – chiefly I want to skip running in 90+ degree weather.
My reminder will be my alarm, the routine will be running in the morning before work and the reward will be spending more time with Adam at night!
Hopefully running in the morning will wake me up so when I arrive to work I won’t look de-caffeinated. Instead I’ll look endorphinated!
^ Just a little selfie time yesterday morning on my stroll into the office. I was happy because it was my last day of the long commute, but I was struggling with no coffee in my system yet.
That little attempt I made to not drink coffee in the morning is over, haha. I have no idea why I was even trying that out. I should have known it wouldn’t have worked! Just the smell of coffee makes me feel 10X calmer in the morning. It’s definitely an addiction but a pretty safe one so I’ll live with it!
How have you been?
Do you have any little guilty pleasure buys like pens, notebooks, shoes, etc?
