Yesterday was just what I needed. Gym. Tan. Shopping. Just not in that order.
After a few weeks of less than stellar weather, we finally had a cloudless sky. Ryne and I really had no option other than to head to the pool.
We cut our relaxing pool day short after a loud, middle aged woman starting throwing f-bombs all over the place. It was a war zone out there. Instead of subjecting our ears to this attention-starved woman’s antics, we decided to call it a day. We threw on some clothes (read: didn’t shower) and headed to TJ-Maxx. The sales were on point yesterday!
Side note: does buying workout clothes guilt you into working out? It totally makes me feel like a fraud if I haven’t been very athletic lately. New gear makes me want to get my sweat on! It’s like… shopping for your health. New excuse for shopping? CHECK.
After my small shopping spree, I actually went to the gym. Given my track record lately, this was extremely shocking. I ran 6 miles… which was even more shocking. Maybe all these breaks lately have been good for me. It wasn’t the fastest run in the world, but it still felt pretty good! (In case you were wondering, my new goal for the half marathon is not to puke/to finish. I’m 80 percent sure I’ll be able to achieve this.)
Oh, and did I work out today? No. Because I didn’t go shopping. See? It’s definitely a causal relationship. Scientific fact. Your children will be learning this in school.
And now I would like to end this post on a sad note…
Buddy’s left ear is deformed. I know. It’s upsetting me, too.
