From heckled to heckler

To start out, I need a favor. PLEASE (yes, I'm begging) enter Kari's giveaway today! Here's her plea.
It's a sad day if I don't get some more entries in the giveaway by the end of the day today. If I don't, I'll have to cancel it :(. Please don't make me cry and beg (plus Emily is offering those of you that enter a promo code for 20% off her Etsy shop if you enter).

And now a quick confession before I get into the nitty gritty. I had breakfast dessert today and it was one of the most unhealthiest, delicious things ever. A package of Double Stuf Oreo Cakesters. I have one rule when it comes to eating such things and that is, if you're craving it, eat it. And if you're going to eat it, never look at the nutrition information. It's ok to splurge once in a while. Except now I have an entire box of them and I am no longer craving them. I should offer a pack to the next five people who order from my shop ;-)
Mmmm devilish deliciousness.

And while we're on the subject of confessions, I'm taking an unplanned rest day today. I did my four miles yesterday (it was supposed to be 4.5, but I decided to switch days and Thursday will be 4.5) and it wasn't easy. My legs are very tired, my left calf is mooing (heh), I mean hurting, and my knees felt weak (and no, not because Hot Gym Guy was there :). Amanda ended up coming and jumping on the treadmill next to me, which somehow made the time go by faster, although I'm not sure why since we both had on our iPods and didn't speak until we were doing weights afterward. And since I don't want tomorrow's 4.5 to suck, I'm resting today.
Come rest with me, mom!

At the gym yesterday, the guy who interrupted my treadmill run a couple weekends back, to heckle me about how I'm going to "wear that thing out" showed up yesterday just as I was getting off the 'mill. Of course he had some words, thought he was funny, ha-ha-not-so-much, and then I went on my merry way with some weights. About ten minutes later he stopped his treadmill and went to get off. I then decided to heckle him, "You're getting off already?" He said that I was training for a race, while he's training just to get out of bed a little earlier and then made some crack about how there needs to be a step at the back of the treadmill so the drop isn't so far when you're getting off. Never a dull moment at the gym when you've got your headphones off.

So I'm now two days away from a haircut and I've decided there's not even any sense in doing anything with my hair anymore. I get out of the shower, brush it, and go. Around the end of the day I get so fed up that it's normally in a headband, ponytail, and out of my way. My hair is stick straight and boring, except now that it's short, it's decided to grow funny.
One side under, the other side out. WTF, hair?!
Also, man, I'm looking more like my mom!
P.P.S. I was making a face. I don't smile scarily
on a regular basis.


Oh. yeah. About a year ago I got 10 inches cut off. That's why I'm so duh about my hair. I still have no idea what I'm supposed to do with it. It used to be a lot shorter than this!

Here's how long it was the day I got it cut:
I don't miss it one bit!

That's probably enough randomness and scary photos for today. Are your eyes burning yet?

Have you ever taken an impromptu rest day, going against your training plan?

Does your hair grow funnily? I refuse to believe I'm the only one.



  1. My hair grows in a giant lion's mane. Does that count as funny?

    I love your gym adventures.

    I like your eating motto. That's the why I roll too. That's why today I skipped my healthy breakfast and opted for bagels and candy at work.

  2. I'm accidentally growing my hair out (haven't had time to get it cut) and now it's randomly getting curly at the ends. WTF hair, wtf?

    If I want something like Cakesters, I go to Wawa and buy just one pack, otherwise my pantry starts to look like a graveyard to my cravings of days past.

  3. i have half a head of wavy hair and half straight - come on hair, get with the program and work together!!

  4. I feel like a complete shit because I never got around to taking the pictures for Kari's giveaway. I've been a little distracted and I feel terrible about it.

    You know what would make my hair look awesome? New headbands! I'm excited for my sweet custom order! My hair is in the awful growing out stage, especially my bangs, so I wear lots of ponytails and headbands these days.

  5. I LOVE your one rule for food. And I agree with it! Your hair used to be so long!! I have no idea what to do with my curly mess of hair and usually end up with it in a pony tail by lunch time. I think curly hair prevents me from having shorter haircuts, but I feel like I've had shoulder length hair that I pull half back or put in a pony tail for my whole life.

    If it makes you feel better, I had planned to go for a bike ride today but I've been unusually tired this week and it started pouring unexpectedly early today so I just took a rest day.
