Yet another weekend has gone by where I left you all hanging in the exciting aspects of my life.  Sorry about that, it’s because I spent most of the weekend looking like this.

Sweaty, dirty and wearing my glasses.  That was Saturday night.  I actually did put on some makeup and real clothes and go out for Sushi with the girls on Friday night.  Look I have proof!

Actually, they might not even be the same two people.  I’ll have to get back to you.  Anyway, because the winter weather severely screwed up my schedule last week, I ended up going to the gym on Friday after work; typically unheard of for me.  I did a 4 mile tempo run 1 mile warm-up at 9:40 pace, then the two middle miles ranging from a 9:05-8:30 pace, 1 mile cool-down at 9:40 pace.  Then I hauled ass home because the roommates were starving and we had dinner plans.  My Sushi craving finally resolved, we met up with two of our other girlfriends for a few drinks, calling it a night a little after midnight.

Saturday morning I woke up to my alarm blaring and the reminder that I had to be at the vet with Pumpkin in 20 minutes.  Woops.  Luckily the appointment went quickly, they were able to get the urine sample, and now I’m just waiting for the test results.  It will depend on the results to see what the next step is, they might need a culture? Whatever that means.  My plan for Saturday was to drop Pumpkin off at home and then immediately head to the gym.  Instead I ended up comfy on my couch until 3:30 in the afternoon when I finally bribed myself with Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner if I went and worked out.  My run was 5.3 miles in about 50 minutes, followed by a 10 minute cool down on the elliptical, bringing my grand total for mileage for the week to about 13.5.  Week one of training is in the books, now maybe I should actually formulate a real training plan.

Oh other exciting news, I had to buy a new Blackberry because mine crapped out on me on Saturday morning and won’t charge.  SO exciting since I was due for an upgrade in about six months, thanks for lasting BB, thanks.  Also exciting?  The new (actually used/refurbished) BB is in transit since they don’t keep them in stock, so to get my phone to charge I have to sit there holding the charger in place.  If I don’t return calls or texts, it’s because I had better things to do then sit holding my phone and charging it.  Don’t take it personally.  I did have the option of an early upgrade to another Blackberry, but I’m holding out until June for an iPhone.  I’ve been a loyal BB user since 2008, but it’s time for a change.

Hey last day of January!  Normally I’d be dreading the change of the calendar to February, but that puts us one month closer to spring and my Chicago trip!  Alright, happy Monday fools.

  1. I had the same problem with my blackberry in the fall. But it was a refurbished phone that only lasted 2 months. This time around I have been really careful with it, but I’m like you–cannot wait to get the iPhone.

  2. My old blackberry crapped out on my before I was allowed to upgrade, but after the warranty was up. I was not happy about that crap rule. I got my new one, but it took a major fight. Still, the iphone is too confusing for me. My boyfriend has one and I can’t work it.

  3. Wow glad I went with the droid not the blackberry…seems like people have this problem a lot!

  4. I have to bribe myself to get to the gym too 🙂

    YES– one more day closer to spring and sunshine!! Woo hoo!

  5. I ran Friday night too. It felt awkward, but good at the same time.

    Hope things are okay with Pumpkin. Me and Lisa talked about your cat on our run Friday, haha. Stalkers much?

  6. Happy Monday! I agree – i’m ready for a new month. January was kind of a dud. Nice job on all of that gymming – I didn’t go this weekend!

  7. gosh my sister is super pretty…Saturday night anyway, once showered and makeup-ed 😉 February is also closer to May which is apparently the next time I’ll see you. Boo.

  8. I usually spend at least one weekend night, sometimes both, in my sweats on the couch.

    Sorry about your blackberry. Sucks that it crapped out.

  9. I’m feeling way hateful towards my crackberry right now. It doesn’t die completely, just random pieces fall off of it. Just die, already!

  10. I love your hair in the “sushi picture.” I spent the majority of my weekend like your first picture.. it was fabulous!
