Regardless, I have paid up when i have owed, prompted or otherwise. The best and also most annoying is after a 'slip up' the angelic voices of my children singing out 'Dad, thats 2 bucks' or ' Lets hear the clink of that twonie Dad' which in the moment makes we want to swear more, but I have to hold it in for fear of owing more money.
As the total climbs in the jar, the jokes have started to increase also, in regards to what purchase will be made, beginning with a night out for the family, to a trip to Disneyland.
What a memory that would be hey, we went to Disneyland because my dad couldnt stop calling the the dog a 'dickhead fuckface'.
Pretty sure that isnt how my parents got us to Disneyland but its a different time.
Coming to work is my swearing oasis now. I can sit in my office and quietly swear to myself over various emails, swear along with my colleagues in meetings, or fellow gym goers on lunch breaks at the pool.
Aside from my swearing struggles, last week was a great week for workouts, they went like dis:
Tuesday: 750m + 500m swim
Wednesday: 5km run + weights session with the boy
Thursday: 1500m swim + 5km run
Friday: weights session with the boy
Saturday: 5km run + 13mile ride
Even though i had a decent week, and was really pumped to get my running up to 3 times a week, I have decided to forego #cigarSundays until I can get back to getting in all 3 of the triathlon disciplines 3 times a week. So 3 swims, 3 bikes, 3 runs.
Distances can vary but I want to start getting back into stride soon. So it may be a couple of weeks before i can get my body moving that much, plus the 2-3 workouts the boy needs to get in will all add to the challenge. But I am looking forward to trying.
I am going back to myFitness pal in February. I am still struggling with managing my calories, and at least with the new iPhone it should sync everything up the way my Blackberry never could. Lastly I am in the process of cutting pop and coffee out for a while. In my research on 'sour belly' that i had a week or so ago, those two fellas are major contributors to that ailment, and I never ever want to get that again so I am going to give my belly a break for a bit. I know I will never cut them completely but have started lowing my intake considerably from what I was consuming the last month or so, so we shall see.
I really miss them both, especially the coffee before my workouts and the pop as my afternoon pick me up. #sadface
On the up side though i am really pumped to see my running come back over the last couple weeks, not burning up the treadmill yet, but one step at a time. Also some of the 'new me, new year' crowd are starting to die off at the gym as the parking lot is increasingly less empty, so the gym/pool is less clogged with hangarounders, and chatters. If you are still making your workouts count, much congrats to you and keep er going!
