Ill have to find the balance between work and play. Meaning 3 beers and pizza does not equate waking up to run before the heat and it definitely doesn’t mean sleeping in and then running in the heat. Today = day off. I had every intention including pre filling my water bottles. Darn. It’s okay rest day. Tomorrow col comes around noon so I will wake up early and get my run on. Today’s beach was nice 3 hours. My skin is no longer browning. It’s absorbed enough d and brown. The end. I can’t wait to get home and jump in my pool today I got stung by a jelly fish. Twice. Wtf Gulf of Mexico keep those things away from me! Oh well. Nice lazy day today. Fell asleep on the deck too before the rain came down. Packed a little. Waiting til Friday night for that duh. Sunset soon can’t wait. 2 days left ugh !!!
Literally. Woke up – ran 3. … Miles felt good.
Unfortuantely when I walked pickles we were attacked by sticky plants!!! Horrible. He’s still plucking them from his fur. I feel bad!
Went to outlets. Went into Disney outlet and was the first customer. Apparently first customers are a major deal. After a spiel from a man who I thought was a total Disney weirdo employee I was sprinkled with pixie dust and a magical wand said I was going to have a magical day full of suprises. I also got a small certificate stating i was the first customer!! What a mind fixer. Love Disney and their crazy but wonderful attitude towards life and customers.
Kicked butt for piper and vinny at Osh gosh and children’s place. Major good deals.
Got a surprise from the president. Thank you sir.
Beached it up for just under two hours before storm hit. Ran in just in time and watched the storm with Pickles.
Got Icecream for dinner with Picky and he got a scoop of vanilla for free! Had a nice convo with the girl server about her black German shepherd. Wild.
Relaxing now with the pick til fun time tonight. Last stop at south street so sad. Winding down.
Boo hoo. My final week, well final 5 days. Countdown. 4 days left. So sad. Making each day count and not leaving anything left undone. That’s how each day should be lived. Ran 3 miles out and back. Didn’t want to but was happy I did. Beached it up while missing an important phone call. Boo. Got hurricane grill and two rug burn beers. 2 was plenty. Wow. Had chicken fingers that I took home and had some Parmesan fries there. They were good but I prefer sweet potato fries. Yummiest. Got stamps from the post office out of a dispenser machine. Pretty neat. New experience my mommy had to help me figure out- guess everything is a priority. Who knew. My post cards are on their way. I wish I could have sent one to mommom but I don’t know heavens zip code. Hmm one day ill know it. Hopefully not too soon because I have a new niece or nephew coming this year!!!! Everything is definitely going to be changing and I’m pretty excited what may change, stay the same, or totally take me by surprise. Or maybe boring is enough … ;).
Somehow I ran there and back for a little over a 5k. First time probably ever. Funny running in fla feels double or triple the amount of miles. I was beyond proud of myself today. Shocked too. But I guess that means I can’t go backwards now?!?! Fml. I also walked my usual 2 miles to the rocks and back, wore sneakers this time – way better on my ankles and knees!! Beached it up a lot – then Pickles needed to get out so we went to petsmart and purchased $1.47 hedgehogs. 4 more to be exact. And he’s eaten 3 so far. And for dinner I needed some greens. Got a market salad with strips from chick fil a. It was delish with their avocado lime dressing and my left over avocado from lunch. Hit the greenery spot. Sunset sucked again and only because there was no sun. Oh well. Tomorrows a new day. But today was a great one. 🙂
Wow this week went so fast!!!! This time next week ill be packing my bags. So sad. Ugh. Well today went great. I ran 2 miles out and back ya two was enough but felt good and was a tad quicker and the miles were dead on the same. I was happy. Got my third hole in my ear pierced- for free , earring and all! Thank you $25 coupon. Exchanged my pink Vera bag for a brown one– fall colors. Necessary of course. Went to hurricane grill for lunch and had chicken tenders yummy and ate the rest for dinner. Got some not that great yogurt mountain. It’s no yogo factory. Walked to the rocks and back for 2 more miles and dragged pickles up and down the road. For well over 5 miles today – had to — the garlic parm dipping sauce was probably the 500 cals I burned all day hahaa. Pickles needed a bath and got one. Poor mosquito bites!! Not a great sunset but they are all beautiful. Will run and beach it up tomorrow. Count down begins. Ah!!!
Technically it’s been a week since I’ve started constant running. Today my ironman could not find GPS so I decided to run on the beach for time – 20 minutes. But I walked one beach access and finished out my run then dragged pickles for a walk for a total time of 45 minutes. Felt good and hot. As usual of course. The beach is sucking lately – no rain but lots of waves and stewing sea grass and leaves ; turning my beautiful gulf into brackish wavefest – could certainly be back in Jersey … But I won’t cuz this is still better. :). Picked Shannon up almond butter from Trader Joes – almond butter shortage all over and I finally had to try cookie butter and it did not disappoint!! Basically creamy and crunchy I got the crunch because I like to crunch – it’s like gingerbread and biscotti but not over kill. It’s delicate and flipping amazing. I’ve eaten two tablespoons with a spoon. But it would be great on waffles, pancakes, cool whip, pretzels, fingers. You get the point it’s darn good. Whole foods was only good for avocados. They are way more expensive here then in jersey and its sick. $4.99 a lb for a tomato. No thanks. I spent my $4 on a shity cup cake. Not worth it. Enjoy the pics below.
4 magic hat #9 was too much for this little blonde to handle. Oopsy or what auto correct just spelled oompah. Doompah dooo. Or didn’t do. Hahaa. Tomorrow is going to be a little cooler in the am and I already have my ironman charging. Ready to go :)! Had left over pizza all day long it was yummo. Tonight will be spent with these lovely Georgians :).
It was soooo hot and muggy and tomorrow will be the same in the am. Awesome. 🙂 no complaints because it hasn’t rained in days. Overall today was beautiful another 3 hours in hot sun getting browner by the day aha. My trip is winding down. The one I wait for every year as soon as I leave. I just need to enjoy it and not worry about my jobless moneyless future because Obama can’t help forever.
Yay for a healthy royal baby. Can’t wait for our own little prince or princess from shanny banany 🙂
I totally did not want to wake up and run but pickles said to stop being lazy soooo I rolled outta bed and went for my run. I know it’s working because today was hard but it felt easier and it was even a little quicker. My goal is to run the 3.1 miles nonstop at around 32 minutes. That would put me back to the 2 5ks I ran last year down here. One was 34 the other was 32. By the end of two weeks I will because it’ll have been 3 weeks of running. I can do it :). The beach was fantastic today. So hot and I’m getting darker by the day lol a trip to the dermatologist is a just when I return. Every magazine I read has something about tanning and moles and I’ve got a tan and a few moles. And if I’m ever gonna die its not gonna be because of tanness. That would suck! Any who had an amazing grouper sandwich for dinner. Melted in my mouth. My next adventure is to find food produce!! Vine tomatoes. No thanks they blow :-/. Until tomorrow ……
