Taco Tuesday, and doing all the things!

I don't feel like having tacos today. Blah. What's wrong with me? What I feel like is running. Runnin' runnin' and runnin' runnin'.... I have to be in a swimsuit really soon and I don't feel ready. Tacos surely won't help either.

Last night I had a sweet nap, a baked sweet potato (over sweet conversation with some of my favorite sweet people), a sweet soak in a lavender bath, and a sweet bedtime. Ahhhhhh.....

I made it to the gym this morning before dawn for official week 2 of crazy workout.

Pushups, lay down pushups, medicine ball squats, tricep dips, mountain climbers, bicycles, straight leg situps w/twist, and straight leg situps. It didn't seem all that difficult, and I did modify a tiny bit to keep from bending my toe (you know, the SUP incident), but man did we sweat! Our muscles just didn't seem to want to do anything. I haven't felt that worthless and lazy in a while....it was awesome!!!!

 Run because...


I'm starting Run for God tomorrow evening with a group from my church. This is so exciting. Sunday morning on my way to service I confronted myself about not getting involved. You remember how much I used to do with the church:
  • praise team 
  • women's ministry
  • VBS
  • building ministry
  • small groups
  • Wednesday Night Live
  • Angel Tree, etc. 
I haven't joined anything at my new church, and it's been leaving a hole in there. A hole in my soul. A soul hole. So I confronted myself about it, and was ready to make a move; after service I planned to see what was on the list of available classes/groups, and pick one. Buuuuut, I got to talking too much and maybe sorta kinda forgot. Oh, but God is good. He is way ahead of me. He sent two wonderful chickadees my way, inquiring if I was in fact a runner, and if I'd like to join their Wednesday night women's bible study/running club! GAH!!!! This thrills me in ways I can't describe. I'll make R4G a regular blog update subject so you can tag along. Part of the group is planning a 1/2 marathon in September, so I'm going to train with that pace group. Eeeek! 1/2 #2 for 2015, here I come!!!!

...and I have a broken toenail just in time to start. Satan will always give us roadblocks won't he? With God on my side, I will prevail. If He is for me, who can be against me??

STUFF!



I managed to eat breakfast today, turkey bacon and waffles. ...with whipped cream...









I found this little gal on the floor in our office lounge. Strange, I didn't see any children in the waiting area yesterday....













I've been watching Parks and Recreation on my tab lately. I forgot how much I LOVE that series. I restarted at the beginning of season 1. I might not have trouble occupying myself while my dude is away. Is it sad that I'd spend my free time under a blankie watching reruns on a tablet? ....NAH!!! Yay adult!

I may get to watch some djimbe on Thursday night. I'm going to visit the parental units Friday night. Brother and SIL have invited me to go on a float trip Saturday. Sunday I'll get to have lunch with the fam, and then maybe some SUPing with my gym rat buddy.

I also need to mow the lawn, clean out the refrigerator, and locate my travel strainer (for hair gel, duh).

Oh! And I get my new front tooth next week.

Wow! I may not have done all the things, but it looks like I have a lot of things to be doing! Get ready blog readers, it is about to be ON.
