Ran two miles last night at sunset with Ian and Chloe. So nice.

I’m eating green beans and watching TV after work and they are gritty with dirt… But I don’t want to get up and go wash them. So I will probably eat this whole bag of sandy green beans.

How do people wake up and work-out before work???

Every night Ian and I are like “alright, tomorrow is the day. We’re gonna wake up at 6 am and run and make breakfast and shit”. But the alarm goes off and we look at each other and go back to sleep for another hour.

But when I drive to work it’s so pretty and sunny and not hot yet and I WISH I had gone running.

I need a better strategy.

Also, the only thing I’ve been consistently doing these past 2 months is squats, dead lifts, and walking lunges. My butt is impressive. I didn’t realize it till I put on some pajamas I haven’t worn in 2 months. Pretty sure my butt went up a whole size.

Current obsession: coconut toasted with a little brown rice syrup and tossed with cinnamon. I got the idea from the book “I Quit Sugar”. It’s addictive.

I just ran for the first time since MAY. Agh it felt good. It always does.

Boyfriend and I were going to do so much crazy shit this summer… But we hit this weird hermitty honeymoon phase again and we just stay at home and cook and drink tequila and make-out and watch shitty TV.

It’s been pretty blissful.

But now I have one more month left before Grad school starts.

I want to get running in gear at least before that starts, because it’s hard to pick up new habits when you’re so busy. And do some camping and some hiking. Basically just drink tequila and make out in the woods instead of my house.

Ran 1 mile today: 2 miles tomorrow!

I really want that margarita on the coffee table… But I really don’t want to move an inch cause there’s a snuggly puppy sleeping on top of me.
So fucking fitblr.
