I Was Caught Double Fisting Carbs

15 Comments

Cameron left the room, came back, and caught me completely off guard. When I turned around, i couldn’t stop laughing. He caught me carb-handed. You’ll have to excuse this crazy picture, but i was laughing my ass off. If you can make me laugh to the point that my gums show and my eyes squint with tears, we will probably be friends for life.

I was a little hormonal this week, so don’t question the beer/ice cream combo.. i don’t know what i was thinking, but i wanted it.

I’ve noticed something strange going on in my running drawer since I haven’t been running… It’s all organized and neat because nothing is getting used. Normally it’s a disaster grab bag drawer, where i reach in, fish around and hope something matches. Right now, they are lined up like soldiers ready to go to battle.. don’t worry my little anti-wicking buddies, you will be let out soon!

My chiro said next Friday (5 freaking days!!) we should be able to talk about beginning to run. He said my ankle is healing beautiful and a lot quicker than he expected. This made me really happy. Although, today I went out for a walk to the local track to walk up and down the stairs and as soon as I stepped foot on the track it was like i stepped into my own movie. “Let Go” by Imogen Heap began playing in my earbuds,  the track was quiet and almost empty, the weather was perfect, and i just got overwhelmed with emotion from not running. I didn’t realize how bad I missed it until I was walking on the oval. I wasn’t sad really.. it was more or less relief of knowing i’d be running soon & just a complete sense of gratitude for how running impacts my life and makes me feel sane and strong and childlike all at once.

I changed my playlist to Kanye West and I left that sissy, emotional person in a sweat puddle on the stairs. It’s always a beautiful thing to be overwhelmed with love for life, but I had a workout to get in and “I Am a God” put me right back into my workout and got me pumped up for my comeback. When i was done a girl walking around the track gave me a thumbs up and then she went to run the stairs too. If that’s not amazing I don’t know what is. I needed the thumbs up (thank you whoever you are!) and I hope i motivated her to kill her stair workout.

My walk was 2.5 miles and if you count the mile stair climb it was 3.5m 🙂 and I ended feeling mentally refreshed. I spent a good amount of time stretching my calves & achilles, per doc’s orders.

OH i almost forgot, i accidentally ran. Not like ran, ran. I ran about 20 feet because a car was waiting for me to cross the road. I felt guilty for running those few steps, but I swear it made my heart grow three sizes because I could push off my foot pain free!

Don’t worry! I’m not getting ahead of myself here. I won’t be lacing up anything other than walking shoes for the next week. Sorry folks, I just can’t get myself into the pool. It’s not happening. If it does you’ll be the first to know. Other than that, I appreciate you guys hanging in there while my emotions and carbs are all over the place!

  1. Oh man, “I am a God” is my ultimate feel-like-a-badass song. One time I couldn’t figure out my playlist on my iPhone so I ended up playing that Kanye album on repeat for ten miles, and it did not suck.

  2. So soon!! So glad you’re nearly all fixed up 🙂 and I can’t say I’ve ever thought to eat ice cream and beer at the same time but I HAVE had beer flavored gelato and it was delicious so I’m sure you were just making smart decisions 😉

  3. I seriously can’t wait for you to be back on that track either! You are on the homestretch now – so exciting! 🙂 This weekend has been so jammed packed already that we haven’t had time to make plans for tomorrow yet but if the weather’s nice you can find me by the pool all day – and hopefully eating a burger!

  4. Love the picture – and the thing about laughing until you are exhausted and it hurts is just the best thing ever. When I get laughing my whole body shakes and that makes Lisa laugh to the point where we have no idea what it even started from! 🙂

    Awesome news on the nearly-back-to-running front … excited for you!

    That Kanye album is one of very few my boys agree on, one is a techno fan and the other a hip-hop lover … so having Daft Punk in with Kanye works well. I’m not a huge Kanye fan, think he is decent musically but hate his voice, and that album is good enough that even he can’t ruin it 😉

  5. That is great news that you will be back to running soon…AND that you ran 20 feet pain free!! I don’t think I have ever done beer and ice cream together but definitely wine and ice cream. (But I feel like wine goes with everything sooo… yeah).
    My running clothes drawer is always a complete disaster. I try to clean it out like once a year but other than that I am just pulling stuff out and I end up wearing the same stuff all the time.

  6. I must say that as a person I am not a Kanye fan, but after reading the comments about his album I think I need to buy it to run to! Glad to hear you are on the mend, you’ll be running that track before you know it. My Memorial Day was spent running a 5k and then being pretty lazy the rest of the day!

  7. You look like Anne Hathaway (but even prettier) in your yellow top pic!

  8. Great news about the running! Yay! You kinda have an Anna Kendrick thing going on in that bottom photo. I can’t do beer and sweets. Beer and chips – oh yes!
