I am a morning person but the worst part of my morning (and maybe the whole day) in the winter is making that change from comfy pajamas to running apparel.
It’s still dark, there’s a chill in the air and my body wants nothing to do with it. I start with the socks to make it easy, then go to pants and save the shirt change for last.
— I live in constant fear of one morning shaking the cumin instead of the cinnamon into my oatmeal.
I try to keep the jars separated but most of the time I reach in without looking or, if I want to be honest, reach in thinking I am looking but my mind is somewhere else completely which means I don’t even see what I am looking at.
—The phrase living in constant fear automatically makes me think of one of my favorite ecards.
But my stalking on the internet days have been over for years. My innate ability to figure things out and piece situations together with or without the use of technology is always in my back pocket though sort of like Inspector Gadget.
I reserve this ability for when it’s needed and most of the time, it’s just not necessary or worth my energy.
— I have been using spinach in place of lettuce in my son’s turkey sandwiches for lunch this week and he has yet to comment that his lettuce hasn’t been crunching so please don’t tell him.
—Did you know about this?
Neither did I and now I spend my free time trying to spot other hidden emojis inside of the other emojis.
–I got an oil change yesterday and always feel so accomplished when I do so since it’s one of those tasks I try to put off without putting it off too long.
I really don’t mind waiting for my car because they have unlimited k-cups (Green Mountain Caramel Vanilla Cream!) and wifi that actually works.
—This is the part where I say I think I am back to drinking too much coffee again but if I am dozing off on the couch while watching television before it’s even 8:00 pm some nights, how bad can the coffee really be affecting me?
— If you were to ask me what my favorite running accessory is that I cannot live without, it would be my Lululemon Fluff Over mittens.
These mittens have actually earned top spot as best purchase of my entire running career.
I run through some bitter cold (just ask my phone) and can say my hands are always warm. I have not experienced a cold fingertip at any point, the extra fluff over layer (which is removable!) is amazing, I can tap on my phone and even tie my shoes through the mittens.
Should we discuss that my double knot untied somehow while running yesterday?
If you reside in a climate which gives you winter weather, you need these gloves.
They were $48 and even if they were to cost $100, I would still find them worth every penny.
—My son is getting his braces off today! I know, we are excited too.
Be sure to check out what everyone else is thinking about today!
Do you double knot your laces? Do they still untie sometimes?
Are you a coffee drinker or tea drinker?
Favorite running accessory ever?
