2. I feel that it must be noted that I am having a FABULOUS hair day today.
i was trying to show you the back because normally it is super flat... but that didn't work out so well. i don't know what the weird pose is about. i'm really not good at taking pictures of myself.
Anyway, I don't think it photographed as good as it actually looks. Or at least as good as I feel like it actually looks. It's just more bouncy and full of life than normal. And what do you know, I don't have anywhere important to go today. Maybe B should take me out on a date. yes?
Usually it looks like this:
3. Cleansing diet update: It has been postponed until further notice (maybe next week?) I just decided that this was a really bad week to do it...
- I am having a visit from Aunt Flo this week, and no she's not actually a relative (although that was my Grandma's name so that makes this kind of awkward). So naturally my body is like OMG eat lots of chocolate!!!!! and when it is that week you just can't say no.
- Josh's parents are having a cookout this weekend, on the day that I'm supposed to eat ONLY BANANAS. If it was the day I could eat 32 steaks it would be a different story but I didn't want his family to think I was turning into a monkey. Although, Morgan would probably have no problem following the banana diet with me.
Those are the 2 main reasons. So I will try again on Monday. I did really good yesterday though. And they even had my favorite chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips freshly baked at my mom's house and I didn't even eat one!!! I ate only fruit and soup, until dinner. The soup actually turned out really good!! And I'm going to eat it for lunch again today. I was pretty hungry by the end of the day, but I think that would have been solved if I had brought more soup with me to work. I just didn't know how much I would need. By the time I got home I was FAMISHED (although I did also just run), and after I decided to postpone the diet, I ate a piece of pizza. BAD MISTAKE.
Even though it was healthy-ish for pizza (chicken, pineapple, peppers, onions, etc) and Josh said it was covered in fruit so I could eat it on my diet (no), after I ate it, I had SERIOUS HEARTBURN. At least I think that's what it was. I've never had heartburn so I don't know. But my abdomen got REALLY tight and it hurt to breathe and it was also hurting my back... it just felt like my whole torso was super tight and if I could have burped really good it would have gone away. It never did but I guess I slept it off.
So I guess that was my body's way of saying WTF?! to eating a greasy piece of pizza after super-healthy fruit & veggie soup all day. Crazy.
4. I had a great run yesterday!! I kind of felt like Speedy Gonzales and I wasn't even trying to go fast.
I was originally planning on doing spin class since the storms were coming, but they ended up not coming until late so I had plenty of time to run! It was 80-something degrees (HOT) and super windy, which are HORRIBLE running conditions if you ask me (although I need to get used to them.. marathon training starts in 2 weeks and it's only gonna get hotter!) But for some crazy reason I actually ran my fastest pace since coming back from my injuries! Of course, it was only 2.5 miles but still! I felt great afterwards and kind of wanted to keep going! I was surprised, and dare I say it... a little proud of myself :)
Love when that happens :)
5. I started scrapbooking again! Only this time it's digital.
I had seen this software that photographers use to create photo books for clients on one of Josh's photography workshop DVDs. It was super amazing and awesome and as it turns out they have scrapbooking software too! And with it being only $40, I finally splurged and purchased it yesterday.
You see, I used to scrapbook every weekend in high school with my friends. We'd stay up all night (literally) and scrapbook scrapbook scrapbook (and only end up with 3 finished pages the next day). It was awesome. But that was when I had all the time in the world and could spend all my moolah on scrapbooking stuff. NOW I hardly have time to wash my underwear -- let alone scrapbook -- and all my monies go to important stuff like food and car insurance. So 40 bucks for awesome scrapbooking software, where the papers and graphics are included and there's no mess to clean up afterwards? Yes, please.
So there I was, creating page after page (digital is SO much faster!!) when all of a sudden I'm done with a page and LOOK WHAT THEY DID TO IT:
Apparently something I used on this page was not included with my purchase... I must now purchase the next level ($120!!) to get the watermarks removed. I feel like they should NOT make stuff available if it's not going to let me actually use it! Lame. So now I am sad.
I probably will buy it at some point because $120 is still cheaper than if I were to go buy allll the scrapbooking stuff I would need to catch up on my life (my last completed scrapbook was from 2004). Plus this digital stuff is gonna save me so much time!!! But dang, they are such a tease!
6. MAKE IT STOP.
She's totally gonna be bigger than Kosmo. And don't they look naked without their collars? They had just gotten baths.. Papa thought they needed to be clean and smell good before they got their picture taken.... because their stinkiness can be smelled through the photo ;)
Happy Thursday!!! Phew, that was longer than I thought it would be. You get a cookie and 27 points if you made it to the end!
Anyone got big plans for the holiday weekend?
