No running........

And I'm  bitchy GROUCHY about it.
I tried running on the treadmill today to see if my foot/ankle/again have no idea....was feeling any better.  I THOUGHT it was.  No good though.  Fifteen seconds in and it hurt like hell.  I had to settle for pushups, situps and squats.  Like my ass needs to get any bigger.  Let's do some squats!!  Ughhhh.......This week has pretty much been a big pile of crap.  I'm usually not such a Debbie Downer, but it really has not been a good one. 

To top off the day, we were going to have practice tonight and didn't get coordinated with everyone in time and tables were set up for a funeral before we got there.  Totally my fault for the dumbass attack and had to make sure all kids were ok to get home.  Good job!!  Coach of the year right there. 

So, tomorrow's a new day!!!  Whooop whoop!  I'm going to ice my foot, and hope that next week is better and I can get some runs in.  I NEVER thought I would miss running after just 4 days without it.

And on a completely different subject.  Weight Watchers just endorsed McDonalds on some "healthy" foods on their menu.  Really???  Just because they have some lower points values doesn't mean they are healthy.  Don't get me wrong.  I love Weight Watchers concept.  It helped me lose weight after having Knight.  Just don't get it. 

And with that, I bid you good day.  I promise my next post will be full of sunshine and roses.  Or at least partly cloudy and ditch weed.  Hey, these kinds of transformations take time.  :)

A few of my favorite running quotes........

I love motivational quotes, pictures, sayings.  They're good for the soul and make me feel like I can accomplish what I set out to do.  I used some when the volleyball season started this year and it really helped the girls see they can accomplish what they set out to do.  Here are some of my favorites!!

I love this one!!  People constantly tell me they have no time for exercise.  They assume since I am a stay at home mom that I sit around all day with hours of free time.  NOT.  I know alot of people who are really busy that still find time to exercise!!

Just found this one today!  Love it and it will be on my fridge soon!

Or a bigger one.......which I think is happening to me.  :(

The "for the rest of your life" kinda scared me at first.  :)  But it's the truth.  If you want it you have to work for it!

I tell myself this when I want to quit.

I've started and now I know that I won't quit!  I love running and I love how it makes me feel!

Ode to the running shoe.......

Size 11.  And I'm not referring to my pant size.  That's my ginormous shoe size.  Who cares, you say!  I care.  I'm 5'3".  Yeah, you read that right.  I wear a size 11 shoe have a head the size of a watermelon and nothing in between stretched far enough to be called tall.  When my husband and I were dating, my future MIL asked me why I was wearing his shoes.  And she wasn't joking.  Not only are my feet huge, they are flat as a pancake.  I'm also bow legged and pigeon toed.  Major problem.  I was so bow legged when I was little my parents had to put Forest Gump braces on my legs at night to sleep.  Seriously.  And "f" off for laughing!!!!!   I have a hell of a time finding the right shoes.  Nothing was different when I began the search for the "perfect" running shoe.

We live on a ranch 21 miles from the closest town and 100 miles from a Walmart.  I rarely run on pavement.  This is my running "track" most days and while I love …

Taking a run on the dreadmill.........

This is sorta how I feel when I have to run on the treadmill.   I've come to dread it!!  I would much rather run outside, but there are days when I just have enough time to run upstairs and start up the treadmill.  I try to watch mindless reality tv that requires no deep thought or concentration.  What I usually end up doing though is watching my mileage and at the EXACT moment I hit my target for the day, I hurtle myself from that damn machine.  Literally, I cannot get off fast enough. 

A few weeks ago we spent the night at my MIL's house.  She just got her home gym all set up and so I used her treadmill for a quick workout while I was there.  I despise her...............because she has a BITCHIN treadmill.  Seriously, felt like I was floating on a cloud instead of pounding the concrete like mine now feels like after experiencing HEAVEN on hers.  This is how I felt while on the BITCHIN treadmill.
No REALLY!!!!!!!!  It was like I was outside cause it has one of those monitors …
