PEBUAC* (I am smrt.)

Oh, hi Tuesday.

**Have you voted in my poll yet??? (–>)

Today felt like it went by reeeeeeeally fast. Yesterday was a slow hazy headachy day (I only slept for 3 hours on Sunday night… oy evay) and today was a blur! It started off a little rocky, but turned out nicely. Let’s recap:

After finally sleeping MUCH better last night I woke up feeling like a new woman. I sent the Hubster off to work, curled up in my huge computer chair that I recently stole from the Hubs side of le office and caught up on some lovely blogs until I decided it was time to run.

Now then, I should probably tell you that I am fabulous at distracting myself from the task at hand. I put on my running clothes at 8:30. I went to the bathroom to brush my teeth and decided that I needed to clean the bathroom right away. So I did. Then I saw workmen coming to repair my front stairs and decided I needed to spy on them. So I did. Then I decided I should probably check my email / procrastinate some more. So I did.

Then it was 9:30 and I decided it was time to go. So I did.

In the past two days I’ve really tried to up the intensity of my running. I haven’t built up my endurance enough yet to increase the distance by much (I add a little more each week) but I’m now trying to run my route instead of jogging it. It’s exhausting, but I feel great when I’m done! Sadly, I’m still maintaining my weight (no pound lost this week) but I’m starting to see results. The Hubs has already commented that my calves are looking thinner and more toned, and I’m starting to see some definition in my big thunders (aka thighs). Really, I started this thing to get in shape, so I am not at all disappointed. I know the scale will move when it wants to (they are fickle that way).

After my super run I had to rush to get ready as today I decided it was time to visit an employment agency. (Hire me? Please?) Actually, the Hubs suggested it to me as I’ve been trying to find work since the beginning of the summer and so I made myself all pretty, put on a pretty summer skirt and sat at my computer to print my resume. It was 11:15am, and the agency closes at 1pm. It’s a 20 minute walk and the appointment takes an hour, so I thought I was fiiiiiiiine. So I clicked print. And I waited. And waited.

…and realized we were completely out of computer paper.

(*insert mini panic attack here*)

After frantically searching the house and emailing the Hubs 100 times I decided to put my resume on a USB and he’d print it for me at work as his office isn’t far from the agency. So I ran down there, USB in hand and, like an Olympic baton relay race, passed it off to the Hubs upon my arrival and he sprinted off to the finish line (aka: his computer). Unfortunately, my computer genius Hubster ended up with a computer illiterate wifester who somehow managed not to save her resume to the USB, even though she checked it. Twice.

So, I put on my grumpy pants and grumbled a bit about the long walk and whatnot, then my darling Hubster brightened my day by suggesting an impromptu lunch date. Spending time with my main man always brightens my spirits so by the time I left for home I was in much better spirits. I really do have the best Hubster ever.

The rest of the day was kinda lazy… I napped, applied for a couple of teaching positions, wrote in my blog, added things to my ginormous to-do list, made a lazy summer dinner of BLT sandwiches and listened to sappy love songs.

Life is good.

    USBs can be evil. I think yours was in cahoots wth the printer.

    Hey, Shop Girl! If you're working that hard on upping your INTENSITY don't worry so much about distance – as far as bang-for-the-buck intensity's more important. You push your body to higher levels where it can't operate if you're going slower (even if you go further…) so you train harder, see more results and quicker. Kudos to you, my dear!! Sadly, this summer, I've been working largely on distance…But I FINALLY fit into an 8 (SMALLER than pre-pregnancy! WOOHOO!) sooo I'm still pleased with my results.

    D'oh! Computer clutzo. It's ok, I'm a computer nerd and my boyfriend is terrible with them. It makes us nerds feel important, so don't feel bad! ;-) That's awesome on the running. Don't feel bad about the scale. I'm learning that weight doesn't matter, since muscle weighs more than fat, blah blah blah. And I agree with Red, distance isn't always a good thing, especially for weight loss. I trained for a half marathon and GAINED a ton. I find the shorter distances, with intervals of sprints helps to burn more fat. Good luck on the job search!

    I'm definitely lazy right now. But my laziness from the school break is somehow not so effective since i have my music getting in the way every single time. Boo.
