Thursday=not so fun:(

Today has not really been a very good day. It all started with my run this morning. I got up at 6 am to do a 3 miler. For some reason I was crazy sore, I am guessing it's from soccer the other day. And the calf pain that won't go away!! My hips, hamstrings, quads, left ankle, and especially my right calf were giving me trouble! Every step was ouch, ouch, ouch! But I was bound and determined to do 3 miles. I told myself just get through this run and you can have the next 2 days off since you will be working all day. I did get through it at a 10:23 min/mile pace. Not terribly bad for all the pain I was feeling. I did stop twice to try to stretch out my calf. I have been icing it all day also. It's just in one huge knot! Like I can literally see a knot sticking out of my leg! Haha. Hopefully 2 days off will help:)

They day didn't get any better after that. I promised Al I would go down to 201 Poplar (jail and court) with him so he could try to get out of his speeding ticket. I hate going there. I feel so scared the whole time! For those of you who aren't in Memphis, I am sure I was surrounded not only by speeders but by thieves and murderers waiting for their court. And I'm not kidding. Luckily I'm a VERY nice girlfriend! And to make matters worse, when they scanned my purse, they asked if I had a camera in there. I said yes because I always have my camera with me. Well apparently cameras are not allowed at 201 Poplar and I had to truck it all the way back to my car to put it up ALONE. AGH! I'm surprised I'm still alive! Ha

I did all my grocery shopping today and just realized that all my cereal I bought at Walmart is missing!! Ahhh! That's alot of cereal and it's the expensive Kashi kind! Plus I'm too lazy to go back and deal with them to try to get it back. I did go to Whole Foods today and that always puts me in a good mood! I got all kinds of yummy fruits and veggies!!

Tomorrow I am starting The Simple Life Challenge that Bobbi at NHerShoes is putting on. Click here to read about it! It sounds awesome! Basically there are certain ways you can get points. One is to cook all your meals yourself and not eat out. This will be very hard for me but is definitely something I need to work on!! Second is to walk, run, bike to places like work or stores to run errands when you would normally drive. And third is doing something extra that you normally don't to be simple and green. I have some good ideas for this one but would LOVE any other ideas!! I think this is such a great and fun idea for a challenge! I totally stocked up on lots of yummy things to eat! I will keep ya'll updated on how I'm doing:)


  1. Being sore sucks. make sure to ice everything!

  2. those days stink! hope today is better! and you get unsore. we played kickball last Monday, and i am just now getting unsore! :(
    - i think it's so stupid you can't have your camera in there- who wants to take pictures inside 201-?

  3. Ouch, reading that makes me sore, haha!!! That simple life challenge sounds GREAT!!! Can't wait to hear how it works for you!
