Runner. Mother. Writer (kind of). I don't know, but I am trying to figure it out.

 

Today is a keep your head down kind of day. My coworker is annoying me with his laziness yet better than you attitude.

We have a manage position open. I swear if he gets it…(and of course he thinks he’s a top candidate.)

currently deciding between gshock and fossil watch. hnng. need help. y’all got any opinions? trynna up those wrist accessory gains

I freaking love Fossil watches. I vote Fossil!

The first thing I ever bought with my first real paycheck was a fossil watch. It was like $90 which was about 20 hours of work.

I really wanted that watch. I wore it until my ex husband bought me a new one 7 years later.

I have small wrists so I have to buy fully adjustable watches. The ones were you can remove a few links are always too big. So I’m picky.

Trying to find a psychiatrist is making me angrier than not having a psychiatrist.

Vent: I’m doing the the right things to take care of myself. I’ve made 7 phone calls, 4 voicemails, one appointment, two emails, one online form, and the best I’ve got is a name of a doctor with 1.4 stars and horrible ratings. Not listening. Running late. Not returning phone calls.

I asked for another name, just in case, and I’m hitting more walls. My doctor is just making suggestions I already said I tried. I don’t see how only giving one doctor’s name is helpful with this type of referral. I want choices.

Is it normally this hard ?

Trying to find a psychiatrist is making me angrier than not having a psychiatrist.

I know doing two hard back to back runs isn’t good. But can I get away with a 5 mile tempo run tomorrow morning after today’s speed work?

I’m getting my haircut tomorrow after work and it will look the best the day of and day after then never that good again because I’m not good at doing my hair.

Serious crisis.

Track work Tuesday!

I wrote my splits out….easier than typing on my phone.

So another successful speed session! Right at my goal.

Okay, not showing you my arm pit intentionally, but you see those random bruises. I’ve been noticing them more and more. I don’t recall hitting my arm either, and I think I’d remember.

And I have mixed feelings about the third picture. I feel soft. I watched so many people who were about my size running with just a sports bra on Sunday but they had more muscle definition. I know part of it is an willingness to cut back on fats and carbs. My diet is actually a fairly good ration of carbs, fats and protein (little low on protein) but it’s balanced. It is not really geared towards lowering body fat. I hover around 19%. I swear all in my stomach.

Because we never focus on the flaws and magnetize them in our heads…nope. Not me.

I’m bored and I have culture club in my head. This is what happens…

I had a CD of their greatest hits in 6th grade. I think it’s safe to say, I may have been the only 12 year old in 1997 with a culture club CD. 

Jennifer…go to sleep. Clearly this is the hidden meaning.

This is such a forced smile. 5 miles done though. And lifting. Busy busy. 

And time for bed because I have speed work in the morning!

I left a cup in my car. It’s a little hot here in Texas.

My nine random questions are:
If you had it to do over again what would you study in school?

I loved English and it worked out okay but it wasn’t all that practical. I wouldn’t change what I studied so much as where I went. Hindsight.


What was your first paying job?

Cashier at a grocery store.


Why were you given your name?

Because my parents are trend followers. Jennifer in the 80s. Original.


What is the story behind one of your scars?

I have two on my upper lip from being bitten by a dog when I was 8.


What grown-up job did you want to have when you were a child?

Lawyer or president


If you had a time machine and you could go back and change anything, what would it be?

Probably where I went to school. I feel like it’s been a huge disadvantage.


When in your life have you had a “now or never” moment?

When I lived overseas. If I didn’t go then, I’d never get to again.


Do you feel you have a purpose or calling in life?

Not particularly. Not on some meta-level anyway.


If you could win a ‘life-time supply’ of anything what would you want it to be?

Running shoes!
