Friday, yes, whoop whoop! One day away from frolicking in New York City with my 2 little twinsies!
Go enter the Pacific Beach Peanut Butter giveaway if you haven’t!
Also “whoop whoop” worthy is this little gem that I stumbled upon yesterday when I was analyzing my site statistics. I found that 20ish people were coming from one link.
Top 50 Running Blogs. I’m still laughing that I made this list. I actually feel pretty blessed to have made a list that includes my blog role model, Janae, of Hungry Runner Girl.
I’m also blessed to have amazing friends in my life. Yesterday was apparently a really good day for me, because my friend sent me a text saying that he saw a quote that made him think of me.
He followed it up with this:
I’m not sure what the “shit” is that he is talking about, but it was really heart-warming to read that text. I think a lot of us are so focused on the present, that we forget to look at the past and see how far we’ve come, the progress that we’ve made, and the new outlook on life as a whole, that we have. Maybe you’re in the mindset of, “ugh, what the heck, I’ve hit such a plateau and in a funk.” Yet it’s so easy to rewind a bit and remember that, “hey, you lost X number of inches or pounds,” or you said “later gator to that crudy ex-boyfriend you had.”
That’s what I love so much about CrossFit. Everyone is there to be better than they were the day before. It’s the only team I’ve been a part of where I’ve seen everyone get stronger and more determined and more patient and more confident each and every day.
Now for the most awkward topic transition. I received an early birthday gift of organic Ava Anderson deodorant. I requested it because it smells like mint chocolate chip. The smell doesn’t linger at all, and I smelled of mint chocolate all day and night yesterday. I wanted to eat my armpits. The chapstick doesn’t taste like mint choco, which is such a shame.
I went to The Farm with Emily last night and I ordered the most awkward salad ever. Da fuq am I supposed to eat this? I debated eating it like a grinder. I’ve never been so angry eating a salad before. Also, I think there is approximately ONE bacon crumble on there. Good thing it was free with my Groupon coupon (haha rhyming).
I wasted a solid hour reading these, and I will spend my Friday night reading the rest of these.
What should Beth and I do in NYC? I’m there with her Saturday-Monday. Okay, go!
