I Need A Dog

I made a green smoothie today. I found a recipe online and was really excited to try it! I've tried them in the past and never got into it, but I figured since I've been trying to eat healthier I would give it another go. I drank maybe 1/4 of what was in my glass before my gag reflex kicked in. I couldn't get passed the texture.

So I had pancakes instead.

Oh well! Today is thursday which means it's my cardio day today! I have had better weeks of working out for sure, but I'm trying. I love having a workout buddy and not having one is a little depressing, lonely, and discouraging. I'm trying to convince the hubs to workout with me. I'll let you know how that goes.

This is to all you people out there who don't like cardio. I HATED it when I first started running. And I grew to love it. I posted about that somewhere on this blog, haha. To tell you the truth. I hate it again.

After my half marathon I was scared to run. The pain that engulfed me from my injury was terrifying. I didn't want it to come back. Which caused me never to really get back into running. I regret letting my endurance slip that far. I could run 13 miles! My favorite distance is five miles. I'm no where near that right now which really saddens me.

I don't like running with a stroller. It makes it so much harder pushing around a heavy non running stroller plus a 25 lb toddler. Running is my time to get away. Time for me. Time to relax. I wish I could run in the morning before LW wakes up and before the hubs leaves for work or even run in the evenings and I could. I've seen others do it. I just get to scared. I'm scared I'm going to get kidnapped (is it really kidnapping if it's an adult getting napped?) or other bad things. The only way I would run at either of those times was with a running partner or with a dog.

I would GLADLY run with a dog. It's so hard finding someone who runs my same pace or same endurance level (which isn't anything at the moment). The Hubs and I have talked about getting a dog. I really really want a dog, I've had dogs since before I can remember. The hubs... not so much. However, because I love them so much he is willing to get one. I know he will love it when we do.

Until that moment, I'll have to stick with stroller pushing. It's a small obstacle compared to others. :)

What obstacles do you have to over come to get your workout in?

Until Next Time!

  1. A dog would be awesome! My obstacles are back pain, the desire to go, and time!
