Ive moved....AGAIN

Hello cupcakes. I have moved...yet again...visit me at


Hello blogland. HOLY HELL BATMAN I have been so sleepy lately. Lets go back to Monday night. I fell asleep on the couch around 9:00, got in bed about 10:30, then got up at 6:00. I was so sleepy.  I dont know if its the time change or just being inactive, but I am just super tired lately. It appears that I get enough sleep, so I dont know what the problem is. I usually eat ground turkey instead of beef, but I am not eating it anymore to see if that helps. Sheesh, whats a girl to do?

How much sleep do YOU need each night?

I need a vacation

Do you ever have days where you just want to escape to an island....just you, a hammock, and a margarita? Yep my friends, that is definitely one of those days today. Everything that couldve gone wrong has...or so it seems. My kiddo is sick. GREAT. I am feeling a little under the weather mentally. I have a lot of work to do but now have to take the day off. Fun stuff huh? I think I have to take the day off tomorrow too because the daycares policy is they cant be there for 24 hours after a fever. It will be nice to have a day off work so I can kind of unwind, but this isn't the ideal situation for me.

On the workout front, haven't worked out in a few weeks. What??? What happened to half marathon training? Well I still have 3 months so I am not too off track. I have just been dealing with the girls by myself, and quite frankly, I haven't had it in my to work out. I know we talked about excuses and how they suck and the people that use excuses suck. Well my friends, I suck! 

Eating has been okay. I finally got the scale down to 139! Go me. Last week I had a tummy bug, got down to 138. I spent the past few days eating junk, so I was up to 140.2. I hate being sick because afterwards I consume too many carbs to make myself not feel like crap. By no means do I count carbs, I just noticed that I do consume more carbs after I am sick. Sigh.

So here's my pity party post for the day. I am off to get the kiddo...and dream about a vacation.

Hello cupcakes!

What a's only Wednesday too. Sigh.

I want to talk about smoking today....I am a former smoker. And let me tell you, after the past few days I have been having, the thought of smoking is almost appealing. I also saw a friends facebook post that said nursing school is driving her to want to smoke again. smoke a stress relief?  Possibly..but guess is RUNNING!

I was having a horrible day today and I made myself go to the gym because I knew that a nice run would make me feel a little better. Guess what? It did. I came back much less stressed than when I left.

I made a choice today. I chose to run instead of smoke. The minute I smoke, it will hurt my lungs and affect my breathing while running. Its kind of counter productive to working out. (At least for me). If I can't breathe while working out, it flat out sucks. So if working out will give me the same stress relief as smoking, then I might as well work out! 

And let me tell you, that run helped me 100% mentally. I was on the verge of having a panic attack this morning. Right now, I am pretty much calm. Thank you treadmill.

On another running note, I ran for 20 minutes this morning and I have noticed its getting much easier to do. My breathing was awesome. I wasn't fatigued. My legs were getting tired. I think the more I run and the more weight that comes off, the easier it will be. I have also noticed the slower I run, the more tired my legs are. Thoughts on that?

Happy Wednesday all!
