Hump Day and a Treadmill Workout

Little man has started this super-charming habit of waking up at 3:30 in the morning. When my alarm is set for 4:30 - there's no sense in going back to sleep. Cody got up with him, but then I ended up listening to see if S was still fussy, so I just got up. Sigh - I'm sleepy.
We forgive his 3am tendencies 'cause he's adorable.

The good news is, I was able to get in a workout on my treadmill this morning! I did 20 minutes of 1 minute walk/1 minute jog. When I hit 17 minutes, I knew that was enough. My lower back started to tighten and get a little stabby (totally a medical term, trust me). It feels good that my legs and lungs are fine and I'm barely out of breath after the jog segments. I hope once my back starts to get better, building back up to faster speeds and longer distances won't be too bad.

This morning, several little things happened. When I went to get out of the car at the bus stop, the handle of my bag got wrapped around the gear shift and it took several tugs to pull it loose. Then I forgot to grab my lunch and Cody had to hurry and knock on the bus door before it took off to give it to me. My tired brain made a silly mistake at work and I felt stupid. It wasn't a big deal, but I hate feeling like a doofus. Any of these things individually, and especially all of them together on top of being tired, would have sent me into a tailspin a few days ago. Now, I'm able to be a little annoyed, but then laugh it off and move on. Endorphins, I've missed you. I'm feeling much more like myself. Yay!

Yeah, I'm not sure what's going on with my face either.
Yesterday I pulled one of my favorite shirts out of the drawer (okay, let's be honest - it was in a stack of clean laundry that I folded on Sunday) and noticed it had a stain on it. Solution? Hope a scarf distracts others from the stain. No one seemed to notice, so I'm considering it a success. Then again, maybe people don't scrutinize my outfits as closely as I do. Hmmmm...

Happy Hump Day everyone! **Please note this is said with the inflection of the "Hump Day" camel.


  1. What a beautiful child you have, well what a beautiful child I have. Life's like that.

  2. Hahahah I love the scarf fix! That's definitely something I would do too ... if the weather ever got cold enough here to wear a scarf! :D
