London, Fall, Reality TV

Happily we are getting closer to the weekend so let's celebrate with some rambling.  I'm linking up with Amanda over at Running With Spoons today, join us here.

The big 100k race is done, London is done and I'm back home.  That's not a complaint....well maybe a little bit actually.  It's strange how something can be so tough and you want to quit so badly then after it's done you wish you could go back and relive bits.  The only regret I have is not knowing we were passing the original Rocky Horror mansion - there could have been singing dammit! This photo from one of the night legs captures the spirit of the thing a little. Heading out from an aid point into a field of cows most likely.

As soon as I got back I got right into workouts and eating better, I started a weight loss challenge with a personal goal of 10 pounds off by the end of the year.  So how is it going?  I got sick after 2 days and basically still have no energy to do anything, I did try to run on the weekend but had to cut it short both times.  I think I gained weight.  So in summary, it's totally super awesome thanks.

I'm giving myself the week off workout classes.  I have zero guilt about this.

Stuff I'm enjoying:

90 Day Fiance. Why? Because someone's life is more of a mess than my own of course.  Maybe it's relative.  Either way I can't look away from this show.

New earrings from Kellie on Etsy.  I looked for a long time to find exactly these. Glass, tiny, cute, comfortable et voila:

I tweeted about Mittens and she got way more RTs, likes and comments than I ever get.  I asked her about pursuing a career in social media but she's a cat and cares only for food and cuddles. Obviously. Her mother is too lazy to start one on her behalf.

Fall!  It's awfully pretty out there right now.  I should be running more.


  1. Run through Fish Creek. But do it soon. Feel no guilt about taking a break from workouts every now and then.

    1. Bit of a weather change today! You're right, sometimes a break is the best.
