January Totals and Other Stuff...

Happy Hump Day!
Thank you all for your comments are my coyote slaying. They made me giggle. My husband along with my friend Scott gave me such a hard time about the coyote. Scott is my coworker and likes to tease me like I am his little sister. I am expecting a stuffed coyote from him on my birthday in November. I am glad that I am able to laugh about it now. It was just the shock of hitting something and it is never fun to kill another living thing. I would not be a good hunter. Good thing my husband only fishes and normally catches and releases what he catches. My car was not damaged at all. I am thankful that I drive an SUV, if I were in a car, I am sure it would have had a nice coyote indention.

Anyways, some girlfriends and I went and had facials on Saturday and enjoyed a day at the spa and some lunch. It was such a great day! I do not get to see these girls too often since most of them are new mamas, so it was so good to get to see them. Plus, who does not love a facial and some wine! I wish I had taken pictures, but Ken had our camera for the day.

I cannot believe that January is already in the books. I added up my runs and I logged 156 miles. I was pretty excited, considering I ran 53 miles in January 2009.

I did stay in my pajamas until 6:00 pm on Sunday. I never, never do this. By the time I decided to run, it was dark and I was needing to do a long run. To the gym I went. I ran 12 miles. That is all I can handle on the treadmill, period. Hopefully, I will be motivated to do my long run outside this weekend. I do kind of have an excuse, Ken had to leave to go out of town on Sunday and I felt bad running while he was at home because I wanted to spend time with him before he left.

Kya, the cats, and I have been slumber partying all week since Ken is gone. I had cereal and M&M's for dinner last night!

12 is still a long time to be on the treadmill - nicely done.

how did i miss that you had m&m's for dinner? (and cereal of course) that is probably my favorite meal :) haha.

i am allergic to nuts so i only eat the plain m&m's. before the allergy i used to eat the peanut or pb ones and just say i was "getting some protein"... valid right?
