Has Been…

19 Sep

I didn’t remember until last night but I the day off today.  Ha!!

Once I remembered it, I thought I’d better go in to work because I didn’t need it off and I didn’t have anything to do.  I knew I’d just laze about.  The Who (daughter) talked me into staying home because she was waiting to go back to school until this morning AND she wanted me to take her to breakfast before she left.

Mick joined us for breakfast.  He cracks me up because the guy can chow.  He always looks awesome probably because he works out religiously every night.  Look at the obnoxious platter he got…

After a nice breakfast at the The Depot (old train depot) got Girlee on her merry way.

I decided that since I had the day off, I’d go see a movie.  I don’t know why I was so obsessed with seeing it but I really wanted to see Straw Dogs.  I went to the 11:10 showing.  I think I wanted to see Eric from True Blood (Alexander Skarsgard).  I mostly love all movies (regardless if they’re really good or not).  I kind of wish I wouldn’t have seen this one because it was pretty brutal.  I’m not wimpy…there were just certain things that bothered me.  I won’t share anymore because I wouldn’t want to spoil it for anyone else.

So excited because the 3rd season of Breaking Bad was ready for me to pick up at the library.  It’s one of my favorite series.

Speaking of obsessions, I’m also strangely obsessed with Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad.

In the special features of either season one or season two he was wearing a “Has Been” shirt.  I couldn’t find it anywhere so I had one made.  A little messed up, I know.

Starting at 3:49pm, I ran 4 miles with an 8:08 average mile. 

My Garmin was real screwy on my run.  It displayed a 9:45 average and then after 10 minutes it was showing an average 4:40.  I’m thinking it was messed up because it lost its GPS signal?!  When it was showing the high 9’s I thought there was something wrong with me because I felt like I was pushing myself and the pace would NOT improve?!  I was relieved when it showed the lower, impossible pace because I knew I wasn’t losing my mind.  WHAT EVS!

Crazy but I’m considering doing this “free to the public” 20 mile training run offered this Saturday morning at 8am.  Let’s call it a “FUN RUN“.  It’s not so scary when I call it that.

My thinking is that if I can do the 20 miler, I could do a marathon in October of this year.  This is surprising considering how much I hated the 1/2 I did yesterday.  At first I thought it’d be too soon to do a marathon but @SamSkinnyJeans is doing it.  She mentioned it today on her blog at http://www.healthhappinessandskinnyjeans.com/?p=447.

I flip-flop all over the place but I know I want to earn and get a “26.2” tattoo.  I realize that’s stupid to probably 97% of the people but I don’t care what anyone else says.  I like tattoos.  It’s that simple.  At least to me.

Whether I do the marathon in Oct ’11 or May ’12, I know that I’d have to go a heck of a lot slower.  I’m good with that.  It’s important to my survival, right?  Ha Ha….  Also,  going slow ensures that I can set the bar low so if I did do other marathons, it’d be easier for me to see improvement.  I don’t know how I’ll ever beat my 1/2 marathon time I did yesterday (7:48 pace).

Oh yeah, BABY!!  Dancing With The Stars is on tonight.  I cannot wait.  There are so many good people on this time.  I DVR’d it so I can skip through all the commercials. It’s hard to watch TV live when you can watch it through DVR, right?

I’m A Cowgirl…

12 Aug

Swell.  Today was swell.  How could it not be?  It’s Friday.

Today, I wore an  old dress from Lucky Brand (2 years ago?!). 

I purchased it at the Chicago store. 

I love it and I especially love my Lucchese cowboy boots.   I turn into a cowgirl when I wear them. 

 I’m wearing some of my favorite bracelets too.  Going from left to right, J Crew, BCBG (gift from my daughter), and a bracelet that I purchased from a friend’s mom who used old vintage beads.

After work, I went to the library to pick up the latest Dexter DVD’s.  Sad to say, that I ordered Season 4 thinking it was the latest season.  I was wrong and had to rerequest the 5th season.  I love Dexter.   Michael C. Hall is so gorgeous.

I also love the series, Breaking Bad.

Just realized that my People subscription was about to run out.  They send you warnings for about 4 months that the world is ending and your subscription  is soo close to being over.  Because of all the mailings, I was so used to ignoring and pitching them that I almost let the subscription lapse out.  Pheww.  I think I caught it in time.  Mick, The Who, and I fight over the weekly magazine every Friday when it comes in the mailbox.  It’s mine and they forget that it’s a privilege that I let them read it.

Took Brucee to soccer practice.  Instead of sitting in the car and watching The Lincoln Lawyer, I thought I’d better take a walk since I overate at dinner… again.

I walked 3.83 miles but I definitely should have done more.  I walked less because I walked right into the middle of a Folk Festival.  I was relieved I didn’t have my purse because I could have done some damage.  My pace was awful because I kept stopping here and there.  Plus, I kept looking at texts, FB, Pandora, and Twitter while trying to walk.  I’m lucky I didn’t trip or walk out in front of a car. 

Brucee and I got ice cream after his practice (you know, to offset the walk I did).   I didn’t feel too bad about the ice cream because I feel like all the running I’m doing, I’m losing more than I’m eating and I don’t want to get too skinny and wasteful looking.

Folding laundry and watching The Lincoln Lawyer are going to be how I wrap up this day.   

RANDOM FACT ABOUT ME — I mix up the colors green and orange all the time.  Weird, huh? 

Night Night….
