I’m at the pediatric dentist for Sophie and there is a mom here who has a stylized mullet. I mean she fluffed up the “business in the front” part while leaving the “party in the back” long and flowing.

Biting my tongue. Biting. My. Tongue.

Convo with John

I told John that if I was a wife who wanted to kill her husband for the insurance money, I really wouldn’t have to do anything. John has had to go to urgent care 4 times in 7 months and is on track to doing himself in all on his own. 

But then John pointed out if something was to happen to him, with all of the urgent care visits, I would probably be suspect #1 or at least featured on Dateline as the wife who killed her husband.

Riiiight… going to go wrap John up in bubble wrap before we have to make urgent care trip #5!

I average 60-65 bpm when my age avg is 71-74.  Feels good to know.

I took mine just now: 59 but I’ve been running, lifting and cooking/cleaning and generally keeping a toddler happy.

In the morning, at the the health screenings at work, it was 54 but that was 8-9 months ago. I’m fitted now I think.

I’ll never remember to take it in the morning but I’d be curious to know. I think my resting heart rate was in the mid-70s before I started running. I’m not 100% sure what it even means except it’s apparently a good thing.

My HR is usually 57 which puts me in the athlete range. But I have 20 pounds to shift and that isn’t vanity weight. I have a fitter athlete trying to break out of this body!!!

I’m at the crossroad between wanting to stay in bed all day and wanting a paycheck.

Sigh, paycheck won. Getting out of bed now.

First run in a month! Just two laps of my hilly neighborhood route this evening. Just me and the bats flying in the wind!!!

Next time you think you are having a bad day, my friend can top it. She was running the Ragnar NW Passage this weekend when her cell phone fell out of her pocket…while she was using the porta-potty.

Yes it fell in.

Yes, she had to fish it out (using a plastic bag for a glove).

So the next time you think you’re having a bad day, ask yourself “is it as bad as fishing your cell phone out of a public porta-potty”? Because I guarandammtee you it isn’t.

John now has a prescription for 800 mg of ibuprofin, Vicodin, and Flexerall. He’s not in as much pain as he was this morning and he doesn’t really care that he’s in any pain.

We are going to take the girls to see “How I Trained A Dragon 2”. The girls will love it and I just need to make sure John doesn’t snore too loudly in the theater!

We are heading out to Urgent Care for John’s back.

For those keeping track, this is visit #3 for the year. Or maybe #4. Dang, even I lost track! Poor guy really lost the health lottery this year.

Hoping I can sneak in a run this afternoon while he is hopped up on pain meds. I took last week off due to the beach trip and I can see the progress I lost. I don’t have a game today either so I have no excuse not to run.


"I think women’s soccer is so important. Soccer is the biggest sport for little girls. It’s so important for us to give these girls a dream and something they can aspire to be. It’s not to be paid millions of dollars. None of us play for that. None of us female athletes play for that."

I won MyFitnessPal!

By lunchtime I burned over 700 calories working 2.5 hours on my parents patio. I had only taken in barely 700 calories after I added in my lunch. I was a net -45 calories for the day!

Ok, I’ll definitely be over after dinner but I’m trying to be good over the weekend.
