I wish I could say that I am feeling bright and chipper today, but that is just not the case. There is nothing particularly upsetting me. I think I just need some sunny spring weather. In attempt to vent and then move on, I thought I would list 5 things that make me grimace and then move on to 5 things that make me happy. Sound good? Okay then, on we go.
#1 Reason To Grimace - Conda
|"Hi, I'm Conda and I am the wuuuurst."|
#2 Reason To Grimace - Righteous Diets
|Just evolve already!|
#3 Reason To Grimace - Haters (I understand the irony of this one after #2)
#4 Reason To Grimace -Lazy People
There is one lady who works out at BifG. I am not going to lie, training at that gym is pricey and she is soooo slow. I was working out with my trainer on Monday and she was there with her trainer. I was sweating and feeling light headed. As I sat there trying to catch my breath I was looking at her pedal slow and chatting it up with the people around her. I was exhausted and the irrational amount of annoyance I had for this women was probably more of a reflection of my character than it was for her character.
#5 Reason To Grimace - SLC Marathon Ambiguity
The Salt Lake Marathon is still on thin ice. The scheduled race date is fast approaching and there is still no race director. For years there have been rumors of failure of the racing company to pay vendors and winners (that's why I didn't "go all out" to win it). It looks like everything will work itself out, but I want it to be official so I can shell out the entry fee and push hard on my training runs.
Okay, so there you have five reasons to grimace. Everybody depressed now? Oh my. Let's move on to happier things and maybe we can all cheer up.
#1 Reason To Smile - Toddlers Skiing
I am not a huge fan of children, but I will say there is something so endearing about toddlers on skis. Every time I see a young child on the slopes, I can't help but start giggling.
#2 Reason To Smile - Reggie Got Paid
My car is paid off!!! Woo hoo. HM and I are currently car debt free! Unst Unst Unst. That was one of my new year resolutions. It is very exciting to be able to role the money we would normally shell out on car payments and use it for other purposes.....like paying down our mortgage.....or more poodles. Only in my dreams.
#3 Reason To Smile - 4 Day Work Week
After having a three day weekend, I only have to work a 4 day week before I get another weekend! I have a long run (8 miles) on Saturday and then HM and I are going to look at open houses. On Sunday, I plan to sleep in and then grab brunch with my handsome husband. I might even take the poodle for a hike....if it is sunny.
#4 Reason To Smile - Gift Cards
# 5 Reason To Smile - Feeling Fitter
|HM always tells me I look fitter, but he might be biased.|
Thank you for indulging me Sweets. I needed this. Now I owe you one (or five). Tell me something that makes you grimace or smile.
