Tuesday Tidbits

  • I ran four miles last night.  Considering the slump I’ve been in, that’s a pretty major victory.  It wasn’t fast (10:24 pace), but the sign at the sporting goods store I ran past said 88 degrees and I was in full sun.  I’ll take it for now.
  • I’m seriously considering getting my dogs a salt lick so maybe they will quit mauling me when I come in after running
  • I’m making upper body strength training a priority.  When I was running in Gatlinburg, I caught my reflection in a storefront window and saw my arms jiggle.  We ain’t having that.
  • I bought the most pungent, strongest tasting onion in the history of the world this weekend.  Seriously, I wish they would invent scratch-and-sniff for blogger.  You wouldn’t believe it.
  • Google Chrome has been the solution to all my blogger/commenting woes.
  • I keep seeing the word “edamame” in recipes in blogs.  I finally googled it a few weeks ago to see WTF edamame is.  I’ve since been looking in my grocery store but can’t find it.
  • I got dealt a pretty big blow at work last Monday.  How can a company expect employee loyalty when that company shows the employee no appreciation whatsoever?  (I’m not even referring to myself this time, but it does directly affect me.)
  • I’m interviewing AGAIN for the vacant position in my office.  It’s been vacant since January and I haven’t been able to find any help yet.  And as a result of this big blow I was dealt last week, in August I will be short another person.  AND I just received two weeks’ notice from another substitute carrier this morning.  This is beginning to piss me off.
  • This is my 200th post.
  • I’m addicted to Cuties mandarins.
  • I am also addicted to caramel Hershey kisses.
  • I stayed awake for an ENTIRE movie Friday night!  “Just Go With It.”  It was pretty funny!
  • I haven’t bought the VFFs yet.  The photo from a couple of posts ago was from where I tried them on in a store.  I was planning to order them online.  Now I’m not so sure.  I read about Amanda’s top-of-foot pain and Jen’s continued injuries and it makes me really, really nervous about even trying minimalist running.  I’m not injured now, and I’m kind of looking at things from the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” perspective.
  • Intervals this afternoon!

  1. Ha! Why do dogs love sweat so much??? So weird 🙂

    I definitely agree with the “if it ain't broke don't fix it” perspective. It applies to lots of things.

    Sorry you're dealing with work stress! It's the WORST!


  2. You can find edamame in the frozen section, usually in a bag.

    and you don't want to go near black pepper bread. It has cheese in the middle, with tons of cracked pepper on the top. When you heat it up it turns heavenly.


  3. Boo to the work stress! I love cuties too…so easy to just pop in your mouth and go.

    Yes, please don't be discouraged by my experiment. I just did it wrong. Easy is the word!


  4. Glad you are back out there, that heat blows. Keep your head up lady!
    Try the frozen section for edamame, good stuff.
    Sorry work is a downer, it really grinds my gears when so much is expected of employees and then employers just don' heed any of their own preachings and take a big deuce on them.
    Congrats on your post, young lady!


  5. Glad I can make you chuckle once in a while maybe : )

    PS. I meant to write that I have been digging the NB Minimus and they have a road and trail version for minimalist. Just throwing it out there for you!
