There are so many of life's lessons that we KNOW, yet we don't implement in our daily lives. And by "we" I mean "I."
I am not a stupid girl (most of the time).
I make good decisions (some of the time).
I think things through (once in a while).
But some (stupid) things I do over and over again.
Drinking before long runs is not a good idea. I have blogged about the consequences of this numerous times. Yet, do I learn? Of course not. So yes, I drank last night - a few glasses of wine at dinner and then 2 vodka sodas after dinner. And yes, I enjoyed the pooptastic benefits of a hungover 8 miler this morning.
Mile 1: 9:24 - head bouncing around; can't see straight
Mile 2: 9:22 - headache really kicks in
Mile 3: 9:48 - Oh shit I'm thirsty (with no water pack today)
Mile 4: 9:39 - Half way, I can do this
Mile 5: 9:34 - Ok, this isn't too bad
Mile 6: 9:31 - Thank Sweet Baby Jesus it's not sunny yet
Mile 7: 9:11 - Seriously, this needs to end
Mile 8: 9:04 - I'm done! I will NEVER drink before a run again (yeah right)
Total: 1:15: 33 - 880 calories (not to bad for hung over. I think the fartleks are making me faster FO SHO)
Dating. Enough said? Ok, I'll elaborate a bit.
About 3 years ago, I made the list. The most important list of all. A list of the qualities that I want in my significant other. Hey, you gotta put it out in the universe if you want it happen, right? Remember THE SECRET???
The list has 2 columns. (Single girls - do this now!)
Column 1 is a list of "Must Haves" - things that are deal breakers.
Column 2 is a list of "Would be nice, but not a deal breaker.
My list is long and I swear it freakin' grows everyday.
Now, that is not the bad part.
The bad part (where I make stupid decisions) is that I have this awesome list and I know what I want. BUT I meet guys that do not qualify and I date them anyway. I understand that nobody will be perfect. But if there are things that are deal breakers, then I need to break the deal.
Someone just drop a freakin' ANVIL on my head. Then maybe I'll get it.
