I spent three hours yesterday working on my bill spreadsheet. It’s an Excel spreadsheet I’ve had for several years and I just pop in periodically and update it. I change the colors…add more dates…tweak what bills need to be paid. This particular time I added an extra year because I always budget a year ahead so I took it out to January of 2019. Great time and energy was put into this before my computer ate it and spit out the original causing me to wonder…did I dream the last three hours of budgeting, typing and bill paying? I want my morning back please.
I went to King Sooper today (Kroger for those of you outside of the area) and came across this little item… from a local company called Rocky Mtn Provisions. I wanted to pick them up for Sean, not me, to be clear…for those of you wondering why I was looking for chocolate. ha. It looked right up his alley. I flipped that sucker over right away to see if it had soy in it because my poor husband has an allergy (sad day) and what do you think I found?? How good ARE you guys?? Hmm? Let’s see if you can spot it…
First person to spot it wins the prize… !
Look what I found!
Does that look like the best running guide ever?? I’m pretty excited to dive in. From 5k’s to Marathons…I can just imagine the magic inside…
What a great story…Edna Kiplagat, women’s winner of the Boston Marathon, wife and mother of FIVE kids (two biological, and three adopted…I mean seriously) plus she owns a farm. This woman is amazing. Plus, did you see her killer time at the 20 mile mark? I die..5:02 (that’s crazy). I love her quote, “We do not run because we are poor,” she says. “We run because it’s our passion.”. Right? Side note: our awesome country wouldn’t let her husband and coach in. No visa for him. Nice huh? He’s been here many times but now that we have this administration..nope.
I completed day one of the ten week workout but really…once you get into a work out plan the goal is to not quit. The goal is to keep moving and keep working out for a healthier you forever. I’ve worked out my entire life with the exception of a few injuries I’ve had here and there and this last year which was miserable. My work today was lousy and hard and I very nearly just laid down and napped on the carpet rather than even finish a lunge. And I’m still working on the rhythm of it so I felt very out of sync with the whole thing. Nevertheless…I did it and I lived through it.
Today I got my HIIT workout done and 10,000 steps which isn’t nearly enough but I wasted a considerable part of my day on the computer trying to get the budget thing done and then back. So tomorrow’s lesson…do it first.
Now I have to figure out a menu so I eat more than…a banana.
