Stuck in Thoughts

on March 14, 2013

Morning my friends. Smile   I hope you have had a great week so far!   It’s funny, as I set here typing this up I am trying to find the words to say.  Do you ever have those days where you might just feel stuck in what you want to talk about?  I hope that I am not alone in this.  It’s Thursday.  Not much is going on.  It’s a normal week.  We are about to have a couple of people go on vacation that will change the dynamics at work, but other than that, nothing really special is going on. 

I kind of felt like I was dreaming when my alarm went off this morning.  Dazed. 


When I got home from work yesterday, I got in my running gear and headed for the treadmill for a sprint.  As you know, one of my goals is to have an under 8:00 minute mile.  I’ve done it twice now, but have yet to hit it again.  Yesterday was no exception.  I felt great getting on the mill, but as soon as I started to run my legs were like, “no way!”   They felt really heavy and I just wanted to stop.  Something seems to happen to my tummy when I do these runs.  I am sure it’s the bouncing around, but man!  After each run I get this yucky feeling and it kind of burns.  I also feel very sleepy and tired after these runs.  The sleep thing I am not concerned with at all, but the stomach thing really does bug me.  I was talking to Kevin about it last night, but the only thing that I could come up with is that I am running on an empty stomach.  So…..the next time I do the run I am going to try eating something beforehand.  Not anything too big, just something to set on my stomach while I bounce it around. 





I am down 2 more pounds!!   That puts me at a total of 18 pounds lost!   172 to 154.  Um, I am actually staring to have trouble finding things that fit in my closet! 







Two eggs cooked in olive oil and one pumpkin spice waffle.



Mid-morning snack will be:



Not being able to just honk on an apple (braces) is pretty frustrating.  When these things come off that is the first thing that I am eating!!


Thankfully, the pressure has gone from, ‘I want to rip my teeth out’ to ‘what?  I’m wearing braces?’   Smile



So I am hoping that this feeling of being stuck with words passes.  I am sure that it will, but sometimes you just don’t have much to say.  I even contemplated not posting. 



Long Distance:


One of the things that is the most difficult right now is having the distance between Kevin and I.  He is 36 hours away.  Two hours behind.  I miss him all the time, especially the closer we get.  I know that we will be together soon, but when you have those moments of wanting and needing to be near them you are reminded that you have to wait a bit longer.  I want to be there for him, help him, talk to him, hug him.  But right now we just have to do this by phone.  I really do think that it makes our relationship stronger in the long run and Kevin is so great at including me in his day.  Because lets face it ladies, I could text and talk to him all day.  Winking smile 

What do you do when you have those “girl” moments and just want to be held??  Smile 


We are now down to 43 days until we get to be together and I am just super excited about it!  When we hit the number 39 it will just zoom by……….I am hoping anyway. 



Well, I am out….you guys have a great day and pardon the randomness of the post.

    Posts of randomness are the best 🙂 almost 42 days, love! It will get here quick, i know it. Whenever i was down and missing joe, i’d do something special for myself (try to anyway)….read a favorite book, make a special meal, take a bubble bath, listen to some favorite music, etc so that hopefully I’d feel better. Talking to him or my fam/friends helped too! Have a wonderful day 🙂

  2. Props for getting in some sub 8 minute mile runs! I HATE running fast! lol!

  3. That’s AWESOME about the weight loss, girl! You are amazing! And the long distance thing used to be so hard for Travis and I, but it all works out. It gets easier the more you get used to it, and you start to make patterns and look forward to days, just like you are!
