Last night was a night of things going wrong.  I tried to make macarons–they failed (I suspect undermixing or that my kitchen was too hot/humid).  I tried to go for a run last night, that was a fail (my calf seized up).  I tried not to cave to the urge to eat my emotions (through distracting myself with umpteen different distractions), but ended up caving and downing a number of busted macaron shells and potato chips.  In summation, Wednesday night was a #fail.

Oh well…onward and upward, right?  Right.

Fortunately my calf doesn’t hurt to the touch like it did yesterday…so I am hopeful that I might be able to get in a decently long run this evening.  It’s a bit cool today, so if the wind isn’t too bad, I might even run outside.

The other day one of my favourite fashion blogs, Closet Strategy, was speaking of the virtues of a great denim jacket.  I have not had in my wardrobe in a long time.  The last one I bought was 9 years ago and has long since been retired as I no longer fit it (I was over 200 lbs when I had bought it).  Anyway, I have decided to treat myself to a new jacket–but there is a catch.

From today until June 9th, I am going to workout every single day of the month.  My only allowance for a day off will be migraines because, well, migraines make going for a run impossible.  So…for the next 31 days, I will be working out big time.  My goal is to get back into cross fit (2X week), run 4 times a week and then do some low impact cardio like swimming or cycling/spinning on the 7th day.

Fingers crossed that this gets me back into the proverbial swing of all things fitness related.  After all, half marathons don’t run themselves and I have a big one coming up in late August (hello Dumbo Double Dare Challenge).

Much luv and thanks for listening to me vent! 🙂


P.S. For the record, I do not plan on giving up on macarons.  Eventually I will get them to be perfect…every time.  And then I will laugh and scream with joy with such ferocity that I think the entire world will wonder what is going on! 😉
