1. As I was ellipticalling (ellipting? ellipticizing?) this morning, I started thinking about how much I hate not running. I know what you’re thinking–bitter! Party of one!
So what. Not running? Totally and completely blows. I really am trying to stay positive, but I need injury season to be over. Even though I’ve had to give up my April marathon, I’ve got my eye on one in June. I’m starting to get a little concerned that if this situation doesn’t resolve itself soon, a June marathon won’t be in the cards, either. Which is unacceptable.
From you, I need this: whatever you believe in or don’t believe in, will you say a prayer or if you don’t do that send out some freakishly positive thoughts into the universe on my behalf? I need this injury to heal. I need run. I need to regain my sanity.
Thank you. ð
2. Early spring continues here in Michigan, which means I post annoying things on Facebook about the weather.
It also means I get to have a beer and a snack out on my deck while my puppy plays in the yard.
Life doesn’t get much better than that.
(Oh, and you need to try the cauliflower chicken nuggets. For reals.)
3. The Clairisonic is life-changing.
Here’s where I sound like an infomercial: My pores are noticeably smaller, my skin noticeably smoother, my fine lines noticeably diminished. If you’ve been considering getting a Clairisonic but weren’t sure if it’s worth the money, I’m here to tell you: it is. Don’t walk–run to the store and pick one up. I’ve been using mine for 2 months, and it’s like I have a different face. Wait, that sounds weird. But you get what I mean, right?
You’ll have to tolerate a slightly blurry photo, as I was too busy cramming this sucker in my mouth to bother with things like proper lighting. This is off the hook! (And I don’t say things like off the hook, so you know I mean it.)
5. I ordered a bunch of stuff from iHerb.com (where I got the amazinginess that is PB2).
Now I have to figure out what to do with it all. I find my choices somewhat odd, too. Well, really only the nutritional yeast.
I’ve had this exactly one time in my life. I was in 4th grade and went to my friend Alana’s house, where her hippy-ish parents were already on the vegan bandwagon way back in the late 80s. Nutritional yeast on our popcorn? Oh sure, I’ll try that! Aaaaand I hated it. Why would you ruin popcorn like that??? my 9 year old self wondered. So it makes perfect sense that I would mail order it in my adult life, right?
I also got a free sample of ginger tea, which was quite tasty!
And this thing:
It appears to be some kind of miniature shammy. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do with it. Polish my PB2 jars??? If anyone knows this item’s proper usage, feel free to share it with me.
(Oh, and if you’re ordering anyway, treat yourself to a discount for $10 off your iHerb order $40 order with my code! AWO351)
Stick a fork in me.
