Thank goodness it’s almost Wednesday.
Monday started on a sour note, coming in to work we learned that our fish- Mo Betta- had joined the great guppy in sky. He had been sick for a few weeks and we tried so many things but in the end nothing worked. I admit I refused to even look in the fish bowl (punch bowl) I let the others deal with that. We were all in a little funk after that. Have I mentioned the awesome customers? One felt bad for us and showed up a few hours later with a gift. Say hello to this little guy-
Confusion abounded while we tried to figure out what to do with him. A coworker refused to use the “death bowl” again and all we had were vases. Luckily that same coworker had a large glass jar thing. So that is currently his home, his name is also a work in progress. Wish us luck that he stays feisty.
It’s also that lovely time of year that tempts all healthy eating plans. Yup, these were delivered yesterday as well-
Girl Scout cookies!!! So much for no gluten. Not that I am allergic to gluten but it seems to be the easier way to manage this Low-FODMAP thing my doctor has me on since December. At least 85% of the time, I told him I’m not giving up pizza or a hamburger once a week 🙂 He rolled his eyes. And continuing on the healthy kick, I put spinach and kale in my smoothie tonight. Spinach!!! I hate spinach, have ever since I was a kid, can’t even stand the smell of it. I managed to drink the whole thing so woo hoo! 🙂
Today was rough for some reason. I was dragging all morning. I took yesterday as a rest day since I was still a little sore from Sunday’s run. So I wasn’t tired from a hard workout. Work turned a little crazy by the end of the day, too. I originally had plans to go to the movies tonight with a friend but that fell through. So I headed to the gym after work.
I told myself I would do an easy 4 miles to wake myself up and get me going for the rest of the week. Once I got going, I felt pretty good. I have been foam rolling often and I found a new (to me) yoga/stretching routine that seems to helping to. Things never really hurt, just sometimes I feel a lingering soreness. My easy 4 turned into an easy 5 for the night. 5 miles- 50:53. Oddly enough there was a guy running on a treadmill near me who would throw boxing jabs while running. That was interesting. 🙂 I made sure to foam roll tonight as well, plus my newest torture device-
In other news, Run or Dye is coming to town in May. I am on the fence about how I feel about these runs. Having never done one, I can only speculate. I am already stressing over the logistics of not staining my car seats or my shoes. But I have always promised C that we would run a race in tutu’s and this seems like the perfect opportunity. We actually have quite the team growing, C’s husband and NikeC and ME and more, so it should be a fun day. And colorful.
How is everyone’s week so far?
Any thoughts on color runs?
Any helpful betta fish hints?

Aww, sorry about the fish, but how cute they gave you another one!
And don’t even talk to me about girl scout cookies. We have this REALLY loud, obnoxious woman that works in my dept who is selling them for her daughter. She basically announces it daily, goes to each person individually, hangs the sign up sheet on the outside of her cubicle and then brings in some boxes she bought occasionally to get people eating them so they want to buy their own! It’s SO annoying when I’m trying to be good in an office filled with crap.
Ugh, sorry!!! That can be rough when they “aggressively sell” something. The cookies have a huge following anyway so if you say no they should leave it be.
Sorry about the fish.
Enjoy the torture device! I use a golf ball, and it’s horrible!
I’m not too interested in those color runs. I don’t think it would be fun to inhale that powder they throw at you, and like you said, get the car dirty!
A golf ball would be harder, hmm I think I have a souvenir one I can dig up and try :).
Yeah, I’m wondering if I just try and cover my face the whole run. That would look normal right? 🙂
Sorry about Mo. I’ve done the color run and the neon run, although I took someone else’s car, we just covered the seats with old blankets and took off our shoes before getting in and a few extra old clothes (clean t-shirt to go over dirty tank, etc.). No stains for us. Oh and they are coming….. Beware!
Thanks, he always brought something interesting to the day.
Blankets and spare clothes, got it thanks!
I heard they were test marketing those cookies but nowhere near me. Maybe next year:)
