Another Beautiful Sunset
I knew that the weather was going to be beautiful again, like it was yesterday. So Adam and I planned on heading back to the outer harbor again with Zeus MaGoose.
This time I was going to run. Sneaks were laced, buds in the ears, I was ready to go. About two minutes in, my pants start sliding down in front.
Stop, adjust pants, restart.
“Here we go…..out for a run…..”
3 minutes later:
“Dammit. Ok, don’t think about the pants, try to keep going.”
2 minutes later
“Ugh, my mouth is so dry, it tastes awful, I need water, I’m dying”
I quit the whole running thang and just went for a walk. I found my husband walking our pooch, and we walked together for a while longer.
While we were walking, Adam and I were discussing my failed attempt at a run. I think I finally have come to the conclusion that running just isn’t for me.
First, until I find out what the hell is going on with my hip, its probably not a good idea to keep “trying”.
(I have an appointment on Tuesday with an orthopedic doc, I don’t think it’s a bone issue, but I’m exploring all my options.)
Second, it’s not getting any easier. WHY ISN’T IT GETTING ANY EASIER?!
I’m still gasping my ass off as hard as I was day frickin one.
My problem is, that I ‘m still holding out hope that running will be the “thing” that pushes me through my weight loss plateau. I’m afraid to give up on it for fear of missing out on the amazing things it could do to my body.
Helloooo runners high.
Besides, I’m exploring my options for a gym switch-a-roo. My gym membership didn’t cost me anything, and the location is good because its close to work. But they don’t have any classes and they have awful weekend hours.
The new gym I found has spinning (which I LOVE) and a Body Pump-type class that I’ve read a lot about (it’s a class that’s mostly weight training, done to fast paced music in a group setting), and would really like to try.
Maybe that’s the “thing”.
PLEASE GOD, LET IT BE THE THING!!
Observe beautiful sunset, to distract from my crazy.
After our walk, I came home and attempted to make myself an apple pie smoothie.
I took a plain greek yogurt, 2 apples (peeled and cored) a generous dash of cinnamon, and a healthy squirt of honey. Add all ingredients to the blender with LOTS of ice.
Blend, blend away.
I actually didn’t have tons of ice, so mine is a little on the watery/thin side. But the flavors are all there, and pretty good too.
One plus side of this evening, is that I finally got Zeus to pose for a sunset photo op with me.
Oooh, perfect. Give me a little more tongue.
Off to watch my favorite Wednesday shows.
