I ran my puny 1.20 miles today at the gym. I know people scoff at that but everyone has to start somewhere. Rome wasn't built in a day. It is easy to look at others who ran faster and longer and get discouraged. I am well aware there will always be someone smarter, prettier, faster, thinner......I'm good with that. I might as well except that now and move on with life. The pace was decent and if I wasn't so self conscious about the gentleman two treadmills from me, I may have ran longer. The problem was..I was jamming to my music, and he was jamming to nothing. No headphones just staring at TV's with no sound. I was really afraid I sounded like an asthmatic horse. He never turned his head my way, but he could have just been polite and didn't want to stare. 
   Am I the only one that gets excited when I get new cleaning supplies?
My whites will be whiter, my cabinets shinier and my Latrine, well cleaner. I don't know why I am more motivated to clean with new supplies. I guess I am just weird.
  Continuing on...I have an unhealthy obsession with Chap-stick. I am convinced the makers add a drying agent to make consumers keep using and buying and losing it and buying more. I can go from losing 4 tubes to finding 3 tubes in a day. What a happy day it is when I find one.
    I found 3 today <3


  1. Who scoffs at low millage? If they do then they've never had to start running, been injured or feeling down :) ANY run is better than no run and I think you're doing GREAT!

    Good job getting everything white too ;) lol

    1. Thanks Ali Mc! I am always harder on myself than anyone else. I logged 2 miles today. Which is good for me considering you couldn't catch me running more than 50 yards!
