(while on the phone with Faith)
Faith (to her kids): Stop running into each other!

and again -

Faith: Don't run into the walls.

and later -

Faith: I don't know what you're talking about, but your shoes are on the wrong feet sweetie.

Good times at Faithy's house.

Back on Track

I maybe took this picture a little too much to heart.

But as of five minutes ago (midnight) I'm back on track!

Last Night...

...I went to sleep in my workout clothes.

On purpose.

I had had that random thought on Sunday night but didn't do it. Then yesterday I was inspired by my sister who old me that she had slept in her workout clothes on Sunday night in order to minimize excuses to getting up early.

So I tried it last night.

Other than waking up at midnight, 2:30, and 4:20, there wasn't much difference.

Unfortunately, that's kind of a big difference... So I'm not sure if I'll do it again tonight or not.

But, I did finally wake up - and GET up early!

And here are the fruits of my labors (not bad for being done before 6 in the morning, right?) -

this was during my three minutes of cooling down (rounding out the 45 minutes).
the other 42 minutes were split 50/50 between running 5 mph at a 4% decline (totally works the abs)
and walking 3.5 mph at a 15% incline (with 1 minute of 40% incline thrown in there just for fun).
 i'm sore.

I just got back from a good long walk with the pups. I need to remember how much I enjoy those.

We walked around Draper park to admire the lights on the trees. I love the big tree with the white lights. It's magical. (I need to go back when it's a little darker to get better pictures. These are definitely not awesome.)

Then I came home and found the hole that Max created to slip out of the yard and covered that up. Hopefully this walk will keep him from creating his own opportunities to go on walks - at least for a few days...
