All You Have Left

Yesterday, I just really needed a day. 

Irrelevant to this post...but it was my lunch yesterday and it pretty?

It has honestly been a really long two weeks, and yesterday I reached a point where I kinda just shut down.

Attitude is really everything though.  

In the past two weeks I have: turned in six papers (yay for accelerated classes, right?), went without power for three days, thrown away hundreds of dollars worth of food, destroyed my cell phone, broke a window, struggled with unemployment woes, juggled a huge work load at work, sat in Municipal Court for three hours, worked mandated overtime, ruptured my ear drum, had a puking dog, had my annual review at work and many others.

But yesterday at 2:00 PM it all melted away.

Why? 

Answer: The Ice Cream truck.


Yeah that's right the ice cream truck showed up at work.  My work is the boss, and got all our employees ice crizzeam!! Remind me to NEVER use the word crizzeam again, it sounds gross.

Attitude is really everything.

With the right attitude and ice cream, I can handle anything.

By the way, the right ice cream is a frozen Snickers bar.


Yesterday, I just really needed a day.

Tomorrow, I start working on me again...

I love Snickers ice cream -- but other than that I like the drumsticks -- so damn good.

I fear my long runs on Saturday's - not sure if this helps or hurts my performance, but I do them anyway.

Unfortunately, haven't had ice cream in months. Although prior to my weight loss, I would go for the Push Up - that orange sherbert thing on a stick...LOVE IT.

Tomorrow is a rest day. Saturday - 7 miles.

Tomorrow is a rest day! And if my knee holds up (it's being a jerk to me) I have 5 miles on my first setepback week.

And let's not even talk about how this has been one of the most stressful weeks of the summer and i just ate ice cream for dinner. :)

@Holly: I LOVE drumsticks too!! Mmm the ones with caramel in the middle...droolskis

@Paul: a life without ice cream would be rough for me, but great job on the mental fortitude to give it up! Good luck with your long runs during half training!!

@Michelle: Ice cream for dinner is genius, Applause! I hope your knee holds up. Injuries are the pits.
