I heard on the news that this year will be one second longer than last year to help deal with a slowed earth rotation or something.
I decided the one second was added at some point this week because this week seems so slow but then they told me the second is due to be added on June 30th.
Adding seconds to the year is not something I knew they were allowed to do (don’t ask me who they is, I never really know when I use the word they in these types of situations) but it sort of explains things.
Like, when we think a year flew by so fast? Maybe they took some seconds away from us and just didn’t say.
So now when time seems to be going slow, I will just assume that seconds were added to my clock and no one told me.
I forgot to buy plum tomatoes this week. I really like them– chopped up, roasted or sliced with avocado–but I completely left them off of the grocery list I write but never remember to bring with me to the store so I have been making do without them.
I hate emptying the dishwasher.
I am just staring at the clean dishes right now as I speak to you from my early morning dimly lit dining area of my kitchen.
I tackled the silverware and needed to take a break.
Can I admit something? I am super disorganized when it comes to how I load the dishwasher. I have no system or order. It’s total anarchy in there. If throwing dishes inside the machine wouldn’t result in breakage, that would be how I do it.
I have my Pro Compression socks on my feet now.
Is it just me or do your legs and feet swell something serious after running? I only know that mine do because I struggle to tug on my recovery pair of compression socks post-run.
Before running? They slide on all nice. After? It’s like trying to do a simple task with a severe case of PMS involved.
You know what else is tough after running? Going shopping for jeans.
Shopping and trying on jeans is a workout in itself, just try that after a long run with swollen legs and feet.
Not only was I out of breath by the time I left the dressing room the other day, I spent the time in the too small of a space struggling to get those skinny-styled pairs up and over my calves and then back down again.
Note to self: Jean shopping on rest days only.
And who I am to suddenly decide to wear jeans anyway? If I spoke in hashtag, this is where I would say #leggingsforlife.
Do you forget to breathe when you are working out?
Just when the Pure Barre instructor on the video tells me chin up, chest up, keep breathing is the exact point where I am probably about to turn blue.
Fascinating how she knows this by talking to me from the television screen.
I do think to wiggle my fingers every so often while running though, especially on the treadmill.
I do it to make sure I am not tensing up or holding some sort of tight grip –it helps me to keep loose and relax.
Of course I bought the Juicy Fruit Starburst gum. The strawberry kind.
It’s better than the Sour Patch Kids gum of last year but not as long-lasting as Extra Watermelon.
But I don’t know why I got excited to see Starburst gum because I never liked Starburst candy.
I always went for the chocolate stuff over the sugary and chewy stuff.
