Thanks for all the encouragement to keep up the morning workouts, guys!
So far it hasn’t been that much of an issue. Granted, I’m usually not at 100% mental capacity until maybe 30 minutes or so after waking up. And by that point, I’m either mid-run or mid-ellip (I guess?), so there’s no turning back. Pure trickery. Muahahahaha.
Plus, the nice thing is, since I’m getting home later, I can collapse onto the couch with no hesitation.
Or at least pretend. Still not there yet. But the roomie and I both happened to have free time. Seemed like the efficient thing to do.
This is the third year I’ve had this Christmas tree and I tend to make it look the same every year. Why fix it if it’s not broken?
My lovely friend Annie got this tree for me a few years back. She said she knew I’d never get one on my own like I kept saying I would, so she just bought it for me.
Annie was totally right. I kept saying I’d get a nice tree on sale after Christmas, but I’m cheap as bleep and would have had a hard time parting with cash for something that wasn’t happening for another year anyway.
Her thoughtfulness is always much appreciated at this time of year.
Hilariously enough, we did not play holiday music while trimming the tree. Nor did we watch a Christmas movie.
Instead, we watched the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Clearly we’re not the most traditional household out there.
But hey- that show is probably what powered me through my 4-mile run this morning.
Health is important and I won’t discount it as a reason to stay physically fit. Let’s make that very clear.
But let’s also get real. Vanity, whether we like to admit it or not, is a fantastic motivator.
Don’t think I’ll be strutting my stuff down any runways in my skivvies anytime soon, but whatev. I can pretend if it’s gonna make me run that much faster…
