Vegas is super sad.
Some days I love to run.
Some days I’d rather light myself on fire.
Today I have an uncharacteristically sappy story to go along with my cloudy (thank god – it finally cooled down) run.
It’s about what motivates me, even when I don’t realllllly feel like dragging my ass to the gym or out for a run. Exercising was not really my “thing” until about age 24. To be honest, you would have been hard-pressed to convince me to much more than walk to dinner. My mentality was “I’m not a big person, so why bother?”
I’m moving slow this week.
Because I was attacked by an octopus.
Ok, so maybe not for real. I’ve been crazy sore and the octopus action helped me with recovery. It’s actually called supping therapy (you may have seen similar spots on Michael Phelps).
The Olympics have taken over our TV.
Is everyone else this obsessed?
I feel like this week has been background to the Olympics. I work while watching the Olympics, I plan workouts while watching the Olympics, Vegas and I eat dinner in front of the TV… we are obsessed.
I did get away for a run though. It was a gorgeous day, despite all the hills.
Working out in the heat is 100x harder.
Especially cardio and leg day.
I’ve actually gotten in a few good runs. Maybe I’ll one day earn the “sprint” back. Until then, I’ll be satisfied with my current summer heat pace. It’s definitely faster than I’ve been in a couple of years!
It’s that time again…
No, not THAT time.
Back to school. Even if you don’t have kids you’re trying to hustle out the door, you probably have to leave a little earlier thanks to the additional school traffic.
I’m blogging over at Farmer Direct today with 5 Make Ahead Back-to-School Breakfast Ideas. It’s round up of ideas from fellow bloggers… a few even involve oats in a crockpot. Who knew THAT was possible?!
My friends always ask me “do you even work?!”
Ah, the beach life…
I work for myself, which means flexibility. It’s something I value above all else. I go to the gym when I want, I basically alternate between PJs and gym clothes, and – best of all – I can work from anywhere.
One of my favorite types of posts to read are “day in the life” stories. Today I thought I’d try my hand at one, along with the usual WIAW post.
Serena Williams is a beast.
(In the best way possible.)
I was on the elliptical (effing cardio) reading an interview with Serena Williams… and nearly stopped in my tracks when I read this quote:
I hate losing more than I like winning.”
Why does Friday seems SO far away on a short week?
Especially when you have Friday off too.
Vegas and I are camping all weekend in the RV. It’s the annual OTL tournament in San Diego, so we’ll be with hundreds of our closest friends on an island playing ball. It’s an insane tradition here, and we’re happy to adopt it!
As such, I have nothing creative for you to make today. However, I did compile another random list of things that are awesome this week.
This article, 11 Wines to Drink While Crying to Adele’s New Album, is brilliant. The tasting notes, the gifs… I’m a little ashamed I didn’t think of this first.
