Happy Hump Day Bleeps!
Raise your hand if you have a sweet tooth! *two hands and both feet are up*
So yesterday I read the most glorious thing EVER. Oreo, you know my most favorite of all cookies, is coming out with a special Candy Corn Oreo. It's coming out Monday in Targets only.
My first response was quite Pavlovian...I drooled. Not kidding. Second
response: my heart started racing. Then I got pissed. I can't wait
until Monday! COME ON! And then I got excited. I have Monday off. I
can be one of those crazy stalkers and park my chair outside waiting for
them to open. Two of my most favorite sweets are getting married! I
really should be there to celebrate. I mean I am in a Half Marathon the day before...
Argh. This is how I get myself in trouble. Could they sell them in packs of 2? If I buy a whole bag I think we all know that I will have polished it off before noon. I will start with 2 and walk away. And then I will talk myself into two more. And before you know it the thought process is: Well if I finish it off today then I can't be tempted tomorrow. Seriously, if I had a nickel for every time I thought that, I would have enough money for my certification exam...Not kidding.
It's easy right now to say that I won't go buy them. But, goodness only knows what's going to happen. I will have something during the Half and I have a very hard time resisting at that time. Yep, it's coming...I've got two giant pimples to prove it. One is on my neck and driving me crazy. I was telling Ms. Barb about it and she said "Go ahead and pop it." But I told her I can't. It's being mean and won't pop. So we have nicknamed it "The Grinch".
Okay, so you know I don't like to use porta potties. I HATE them. So yeah, I will have my period and only access to porta potties Sunday....kill me now. I'm going to need to bring baby wipes with me. I will be too skeeved out. I'm a little nervous. I'm less bloated and crampy if I eat right and workout. But, I am keeping saturday open for my day of rest...let's hope the rest of the week is enough to keep it cool.
So tomorrow night is the Turn The Riverfront Pink 5K. I checked and there are currently 454 women signed up to walk for Breast Cancer. I can't wait. I hope to have some pictures for you. That is, if I can lift my arms to do that.
I haven't lifted for two weeks so tonight I had planned on an upper body workout. It felt so good that I went at it. I was on fire. Well okay, let me confess that I'm planning on wearing a tank top for the race and I wanted to make sure I got in a big arms workout...must impress. I became a little obsessed with looking at my triceps. I kept bending and straightening my arms and looking that the muscle just pop out....I really am blonde. haha.
Today I finally sat down and studied at lunch before my Bible Study. I was loving it and then I realized that I was only 4 pages away from the end of the chapter right before it was time for my Bible Study. I contemplated skipping and just finishing up, but that was ridiculous. I could finish tonight. And I will because the next chapter is about designing strength programs and I am simply beside myself with joy. I cannot WAIT to get started on that.
And on that note...
