Monday and Tuesday: Ouch

Wow, thanks for all of the comments on Tuesday.  I have to admit that I was hesitant to talk about paying myself for cleaning.  That it would seem silly.  But it seems to have been quite the topic. As I replied to some of the comments, I don’t pay myself every week if there has been recreational shopping or even the same amount every week. But it works for me.

Monday I hit the Desert Classic trails for another 5 mile run.  It was FUN, I saw a coyote and didn’t fall down.  Although I tried a couple of times.  And because that wasn’t enough wear and tear on my legs, I decided to do an at-home Crossfit workout Monday night, thanks to Jess at the Blond Ponytail.  It went like this:

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, Burpees, Squats, Pushups, Situps.  So 10 of each, then 9 of each, 8 of each, and so on and so on.  Um, OUCH!  It is a workout for time and I did it in 17:10.

Run: 5 miles Trail / 1:08

Because of Monday’s double-time, Tuesday was a day of walking the dogs and not much else.

I did sign up for my 5mile Trail Run!  The McDowell Mountain Frenzy.  I am VERY excited.

Food over the past couple of days is nothing exciting.  Part of a muffin, cream of wheat, egg beaters, a steak, some leftovers, I got my first red cup from Starbucks.  Nothing too exciting.

I cheated myself on the muffin.  A bad cut job left one BIG half and a skinny, little half.

What is your next race?

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.

  1. I’ve done that CF workout – it is a killer!! Great time!

    My next race is the Gobble Jog 10k on Thanksgiving morning that benefits MUST ministries in my area. I am hostessing a small turkey day gathering this year and eating in the evening so I figured I could pump out 6.2 miles before strapping on the apron and feel vindicated later when I gorge on turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie. I love Thanksgiving!
