Crazy coyote!!!

So.....ever since I had surgery, I have terrible insomnia.  Ughhh.....I can't sleep longer than a couple hours and then I'm up for a couple of hours.  It's really annoying as shit cause I NEED my sleep.  I'm not talking sleep all day kind of thing.  I'm talking my normal 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep.  That's all I ask. 

Well, I was up at 1:00 this morning so I thought I might as well head downstairs and watch some tv.  Turned on the tube and in about 5 minutes the dogs were barking like crazy.  Then I heard a loud BANG!  I thought it was our Mammoth Jack Mule "Hank" that randomly shows up in our yard and basically just has free rein of the place.  That afternoon he'd been on my porch by my kitchen.  I know, so very redneck.  But we love him.  As I was walking by the front door I noticed all 3 dogs had something cornered on the front porch.  I ran upstairs and woke Wade up.  :)  He loves me.

Went downstairs, found a flashlight and the dogs ran off.  I opened up the door and shined my light at the corner of the porch.  COYOTE!!!!  Yep, right there living, breathing, growling at me, coyote.  I did have my smart pants on though and convinced Wade we should not shoot him.  I was thinking of a large hole in the side of my house at this point.  We finally got him off the porch and hopefully there will NOT be a repeat of that anytime soon.  It was an interesting way to pass the time though.  :)

Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead!  I have my checkup tomorrow from gall bladder surgery and I'm hoping I get the ok to start some much needed harder exercise!

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 …
