Happy Tuesday My Lovelies and Gents,

Sorry Gents, this is a Chicks post. Please come back tomorrow :-)

Well here we are one year after the first Rock'n'Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon. Do you remember what I had during the race? Well...Bingo!  Last month I was a few days late (thank you very much Study Stress). Well this month I was a couple days early, which pretty much puts me back on schedule.

I have been PRAYING to get it done and over with before the race. There is no where to change a tampon during a race. Technically you can change it in a porta potty, but you can't wash your hands. In theory I should be able to run a couple hours without needing to, but it's not just the run. It's the drive there, the wait for it to start, and the drive home.

So I got mine on Sunday night and did the happy dance. It's been fairly light and that's been awesome. See what a difference stress makes? 

I think we now know why I was craving that Dairy Queen on Sunday. I am like a chocoholic right now. GIMME GIMME GIMME!  Seriously, Mr. Wil's Chocolate jar has stood no chance against me. Okay, it's not that bad, but only because I have practically tied myself to my chair. I can go hours and be fine. And the I will go over and get one itty bitty little bite sized kit kat and I am licking the wrapper clean. I would seriously bathe in that chocolate.

At lunch time Ms. Tracey had asked if I wanted to go to Babies r Us with her. It was hot and humid outside and I was fairly sure I could avoid spending money there so I said I was in.  I'll be honest, I actually went down the food aisle looking to see if there were any quick snacks for me for the weekend.

I saw these Veggie chips that look tortilla chips. They said they were one serving of them was one serving of vegetables. I think that's good and that's bad. It's a good alternative to regular chips, but I am just hesitant that kids might then think that regular chips count as vegetables.

Okay, first let me just say HOLY COW that store was cold.   We were freezing. Were were looking around for a little while and then it was time to go. As we were checking out I noticed the freezer at the register selling ice cream. They had a Reeces Peanut Butter cup that was like a klondike bar..um....HELLO!  First, I will cry foul...that's not fair to parents. That's just mean. Mom can I have an ice cream? PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE! Second, I didn't get one. No matter how much I wanted one.

So back at work I started to feel not so good. I had back cramps all morning and after lunch it started to move to the front too. I wanted to crawl under my desk and curl up into the fetal position. *sad face*  I was starting to feel nauseous. I took some medicine, but if it didn't get better soon I would be going home early. I didn't want to. But, I couldn't take it. Eventually I felt better and decided I was going to the gym. It would be a light walk and then another massage.

That massage felt good. GOOOOOOOD.

On my way home I stopped for a few items. Um...DAMN YOU HALLOWEEN CANDY AISLE!  I didn't go down, but I wanted to. All I could think of was "Grab a candy bar as you pay! No, go get some ice cream. Get both!"

I was looking for an open aisle with no line and it happened to be the one with no candy. I jumped. It was exhausting resisting temptation.

Sometimes being a female is too difficult. But, we shall live another day.

Lord Please Keep Me From Temptation.

Have a Blessed Night.
