morning afternoon, dah-lings! I just got back from a 10 miler on the dreadmill. It was pouring when I woke up, and I had a 12 miler on the training plan (half marathon is this Saturday – !!!!) so I compromised with a 10 on the treadmill. I watched the entire movie, Law Abiding Citizen, which will undoubtedly give me nightmares, but was good nonetheless.
The 10 miles passed by surprisingly quickly. Before I knew it, there was just 3 miles left, and the I finished the ten in 1:37:53
What 10 miles on a treadmill looks like:
Be glad you can’t smell the internet
Just Flat Out wrap with a smushed nanner and some PB & Co. Cinnamon Raisin PB in it.
So good, so simple!
A Mediterranean scramble on some whole wheat toast – included were 2 eggs, 2 egg whites, artichoke hearts, kamalata olives, sun dried tomatoes, spinach, and goat cheese.
Oh, and hot sauce YUM!
Man…I have quite the story for you guys.
So in light of recent changes and realizations, my husband, has been planning on selling his
mistress beloved BMW:
I believe he wept a little on the inside.
He has been researching trucks, and found “the one” on Friday night. When I get home from my last training appointment that night, he said he’d planned on driving up to Elgin, Illinois (almost three hours north) on Saturday to get it. I volunteered to push back my long run to today and go along with him after my Saturday morning clients.
So before I headed out the door to train on Saturday morning, I had a lovely quick breakfast:
A toasted Ezekiel muffin with organic strawberry jam on one half and a carob powder/banana/AB sauce on the other half. Deeeelicious
Trained a bit, came home, and made up some “driving fuel” aka a Green Monster”
Just the basics – ice, 1 frozen banana, 1/2 scoop protein powder, almond milk, and a bunch of spinach.
And we were off!
It was kind of a long drive, so we stopped to have some lunch:
hahah kidding, we didn’t have lunch here, but I thought it would be a fun photo op
We really just made a quick pit stop at Subway since we didn’t want to be gone all day long…little did we know then…
I ate about half, and eventually had to throw the other half out (I’ll explain later)
So we finally got to the HUGE dealership around 2:45 and started haggling. Both Shane and I hate this part of car shopping. But after about 4 counter offers, we caved and signed all the papers. Done and Done two hours later. Or so we thought…
We waited. And waited. And WAITED. Two hours had passed and it was almost SEVEN o clock. That’s FOUR hours after we arrived. The finance guy was back logged they said. We told him we had to drive three hours south after this and had a dog to let out. They couldn’t have cared any less. EVERY single manager was as rude as could be.
Oh! but around 7:00, we got free pizza for our patience…
The hubski got so mad he raised his voice and said a few choice words to one of the managers who completely ignored us when we asked about how much longer it would be. Oh, and this was around 8:30. Then 9:00 rolled around…we’d been there six hours.
By this time we were so slap happy from staring at the same four walls and hearing the same music over and over again that we couldn’t stop laughing LOL.
Our “Honda faces”
LOL – about to go insane!
FINALLY around 9:30, we went back to sign the finance papers.
Shane told the only couple waiting after us that we had just posted bail and we were free bahaha
Seriously it was the worst car buying experience ever. We really didn’t have any options. We had sold our car, and couldn’t take the new car because of liability purposes. And apparently we couldn’t take a rental car because they couldn’t find any plates. I call BS but whatever.
We rolllled on into our house around 1:00 in the morning, and needless to say CRASHED.
hehehe. It was very disturbing, but hey, it’s a story to tell. The Honda behind it all…
Well loves, I have a pretty busy day ahead so I better get crack a lackin! I’m working on a new flyer/poster advertising my personal training services to post around the gym. Right now mine are just made from Word…time to get fancy schmancy up in here!
What’s the worst waiting experience you’ve had? It could be at a car dealership, an airport, the store, whatever!
