Monday: 1 Ringy Dingy, 2 Ringy Dingy

Monday started with a crappy-ass night of sleep and two dogs on the bed.  Once again, I just couldn’t stay asleep.  I had a 7am meeting to be at so I knew I was going to have to motivate myself out of the house right after the alarm if I wanted to get my 5 miles in and still be on time.  And I did manage to do it!  I was panicked that my iPod was going to die when I saw that red line where my battery icon should be.  But that little puppy held on for me.   And I felt like I ran at a good, steady pace through the whole 5.  Even up the hill that is called Central.

Run 5.0 miles/56:20

I drank my coffee while on conference call #1 and had a protein bar after call #2.  Then I dipped into some carrots, calls #3 and #4 and then leftover Chicken Tortilla Soup and chips for lunch.  A nectarine and a few more carrots later brought dinner.

I had so many beautiful salad ingredients from my Bountiful Basket on Saturday that I decided to use them for dinner.  A wonderful steak salad with ranch dressing.  I had also chopped up some bruschetta with a sliced-up loaf of french bread.

I have no shame in admitting that I spent a big chunk of time today on the couch watching DDD and Property Vigins.  These shows never seem to get old.  And I hadn’t seen these episodes yet.   Even if I had seen them, I probably would have kept watching.


About nfoste2245

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
