Productive and unproductive all at the same time

I slept in this morning with The Beagle. Got up, ate me some flax crunchies cereal with rice milk, ate some bacon then set off on my run. I filled my two mini-water bottles from the water belt the wonderful TH got me for H2C back in August, with about a tablespoon on honey and the rest with water. I think each bottle ( I had 2) is about 8oz. It was raining and about 40 degrees out. I wore my new Target running tights (bargain winner!) and my Costco thermal top. I also had on my Dollar Tree headbands (classy). Apparently, I'm all about being thrifty. The first 2 miles sucked because they alwas do. I took it really slow knowing that I didn't want to kill myself. I just did an 8 mile out and back. Once I got past the turnaround, the next 4 miles went by fast. I drank my honey-water during the crosswalks and ended up drinking both before I got home. It felt great to finish that run. I was smiling the entire last 2 miles feeling proud of myself. I got home, showered, iced, drank 3 glasses of chocolate rice milk, raked the leaves from the back yard, then Momma Bear and I went to get groceries. An hour later it was 2pm meaning that Starbucks had their Buy one, get one Holiday Drinks special. We stopped by and each got a peppermint white mocha. SOOOOOOOOOOO sugary, but so good. I will say that the drinks were a good treat, but not something I could do everyday. When we got home we took The Beagle for a long walk and let him run loose at the high school football fields (I'm pretty sure that's illegal). Momma Bear and I really love to live a life of danger. I had to give The Beagle a bath when we got home since he was covered in mud. After The Beagle ran around the house like a maniac to dry off, Momma Bear decided to open up a bottle of wine. Enough said.

It's 4pm and I'm NOW just thinking about doing some outlining. hum. I guess the title of the post says it all.

Workout: 8 mile easy run.

(P.S. honey water rocks! It gave me a lil kick)

  1. I have to say, I also love procrastinating by being otherwise productive. :)
