WTF Wednesday from the adulting rebel

We’re getting another cold front today and I am loving it.  I got up this morning and ran 8 miles and the wind was blowing so hard it felt like it could knock me over but it felt so good. I love mornings like this well, until I get back and then have to work.  I’m not so fond of work lately.

fuck adulting

Hank has been on antibiotics since the spider bite happened.  He did okay with them until the night before last.  I woke up at 5AM and he was throwing up inside the cone.  He did the same thing this morning.  MacGyver and I think it has to be the antibiotics so we’re going to ask the vet if he can come off of them at his bandage change tomorrow.  It looks like the bite is healing nicely so I don’t see why they would need to keep him on them.

The other pets in the house are getting antsy because they really want to be able to play with Hank again.

What?  Your woodpecker doesn’t play with your dog?

I almost went to the salon last night and chopped off my hair.  I didn’t but I seriously need a new hairstyle.  My hair is looking spent.  I want something current and up to date but it has to be longish because I still need to pull my hair back into a ponytail when I run.

See!  It’s pretty ratty looking.  I have no idea what to do with it because it’s just getting thinner and thinner as I get older.  What’s a good hairstyle for someone who has thin hair but would like to keep it somewhat long and make it look thicker?  Anyone have any suggestions?

Keep in mind it has to also be low maintenance and easy to style.  If you remember I’m the girl who bought the tyme iron and still cant figure out how to use the damn thing and my hair doesn’t really hold curl all that well anyway unless I leave the curling iron on it forever and I don’t want to do that.

hair fail

Yep, that’s exactly why.

WTF, it’s Wednesday and I’m over here trying to adult and failing.

Tuesday tangents and HIIT workouts VS running a marathon

Does anyone else find it suspect that National Oreo Cookie Day and National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day are on the same day as National Dentists Day?

the National DayThings that make you go hmmmmmm

So I decided to sleep in this morning and forgo my run.  I just wasn’t feeling it.  Of course, I then got up and took both of the dogs for a walk, separately, so that I could get out of the house for a good half hour.  Apparently I need to be outside first thing in the morning whether I’m running or not.

need to be outsideDid anyone see this story?

I absolutely hate reading stories like this.  It also reminds me of the time I was running in a local park and near the end of my run I heard something in the wooded area to my right and as I looked over I saw a guy in work out attire with his junk hanging out.

I just kept running but it pissed me off because even though it wasn’t obvious, I just knew he was doing it on purpose because there were porta potties located exactly 50 feet from where he was and I knew that there were little girls in the park as well.  What the hell is wrong with these men?  And is the punishment severe enough?  Because I feel like most normal men would know that exposing themselves in any manner in a public park is just wrong.  Period.

How bout this next article?  Did anyone see this?

I do believe that running a marathon alone is not the best way to get into shape and I also think you need additional forms of exercise but I hate when I see articles like this because I think it discourages people from long distance running and of course I want everyone to love it as much as I do.  It is an interesting article though and I do like HIIT workouts for strength training.  What do you think?

Do you do HIIT workouts?

What do you think should be the punishment for someone who exposes themselves in public?

It’s a wrap, the weekends over!

Over the weekend our weather turned cooler and it was beautiful.  So beautiful that even though I had the flu all week, I ran.  I didn’t go crazy or anything but I did run 7.5 miles on Saturday and 8.5 miles on Sunday which brought me to a total of 24 for the week.  Not bad for 3 days of running even though I probably should have rested a bit more.

running is not restingIt caught up with me this morning because I went out bright an early but after only a few minutes of running I felt sick to my stomach.  I ended up walking for three miles instead and I’ll play it by ear tomorrow.

The good news is, Hank is getting better by the minute and already itching to get out and run with me.  And with the recent weather change we had to put on his warmer clothes, which means, he got to wear this:

Hank in track suit

C’mon Mom, let’s go running!

I cannot get enough of that track suit.  Seriously.

Other than the weather change and Hank feeling better not much was going on this weekend over here.  We stayed home for most of the weekend and just vegged out.  My mom was a little worried about me so she called and texted often to check on me.

My mom is hilarious.  I save her texts sometimes just so I can go back and read them when I need a little giggle.  Here, I’ll show you.

She texted me late last week to ask if I was feeling better and if I was getting back to work.  I responded and then her reply just cracked me up.

moms textHAHAHA, yep, hazmat for a kitchen fire sounds about right.

Over the weekend I sent her a picture of Hank in his track suit and told her that I also bought one for her dog.  This was the conversation that followed.

mom text 2See what I mean now?  Random hilarious stuff.  I just love my mom.

One more quick thing to show you.  MacGyver brought me some old windows to play around with and I made this over the weekend.
