A week in my life – day five.

17 Mar

TGIF was the theme of Friday.

Fridays are great days. They are busy, but you see an end in sight to the week and know that relaxation is almost here!!

Here we go….

6:10am - Wake up, pry Ramsey out of bed for a morning run.

Set the Garmin in the window to catch a satellite. This can save 5 minutes of standing outside before a run waiting for your Garmin to catch a satellite!

I had no pants at Ramsey’s house. I had to search for a pair of his that would work. Came up with these long underwear pants. I have no clue how he wears them…they fit me and my butt is WAY smaller than his!

A week in my life – day four.

15 Mar

Ok. So taking photos is getting old. Like, really really old. BUT I put myself up to this challenge and I WILL follow through!!!

Thursday was a pretty relaxed day. Thursdays are actually one of my favorite days of the week. I get caught up at work and usually get to do something fun with my boyfriend on Thursday nights! This Thursday was no different.

As I said earlier, I am getting a little bored with all the photo taking. Thursday I tried to take some pictures of things I had yet to take photos of. Beware…TMI ahead.

yep. Another ridiculous wake up call.

When I get ready at Stacy's, I wear my American Girl robe. I have had this thing for AT LEAST 15 years. The arms are short, but the length hits above my knees now. I can't get rid of it!

This is where we have TMI. What are those?? Oh, they are my toenails. After 3 glasses of wine I finally decided it was time to get these babies off. I barely pulled and they came right off. I think they have been on the verge of falling off for over a month. #Runnerprobs

I think they have been on the verge of falling off for over a month. I apologize if you are gagging right now, or if you were eating your lunch while reading this. Even I feel sick right now, however that could be due to the wine I drank last night. #Runnerprobs

A week in my life – day two.

13 Mar

Tuesdays are my regroup days.

My life is usually crazy on Mondays, so Tuesdays are my days to get caught up.

Yesterday was a great day. I ran, got a ton done at work, grocery shopped, and made dinner. Aside from struggling to get out of bed and being forgetful, everything went well!

Now let’s review the photos, shall we?!

YAWN!!!!! I actually fell back asleep after this alarm and woke up at 4:59. In order to on on time to running, I have to leave at 4:59...I was late.
