Yesterday was a crazy day for me but luckily, it was also my rest day. I was gone all day and also managed to get a few things done for myself that I’ve been putting off so I’m glad I got it all knocked out at once.
Sunday I did a 12 mile run on the treadmill (NOT my favorite). The treadmill at my gym looks at nothing, the tv is overhead so you can’t see it without falling off. The treadmills aren’t across from the mirrors either, they’re facing the wall. Because that’s normal. So poor runners have to really work on their mental toughness and run staring at nothing but a blank wall. Let’s just say 12 miles of that was an exercise in mental strength and it’ll be really really hard to get me down anytime I’m running outside.
I came home and obviously needed pancakes for a Sunday brunch.
If you don’t add vanilla extract, lemon, and sugar to your pancake batter, you’re doing it wrong. But I’m also weird and don’t put maple syrup on my pancakes, I like them with flavor on their own and then eat them plain. With my hands, if you needed a fuller picture. Yes, it’s abnormal. But they taste just as good with syrup I’m told by my husband.
I like to crumple bacon into my last pancake of the bunch. It’s delicious. Salty sweet 🙂
That was 80% of my Sunday…run, pancakes, get plenty of “rest.” a.k.a. sit on the couch and watch True Detective.
Back to yesterday, no run, but I did get a fun haircut before my meeting!
My hair was super long to start, went all the way to my lower back. It’s actually really thick and naturally wavy too, but I have to straighten it before I go to get it cut.
Please ignore the pajama-sweatpants. I’m cold all the time, I wear layers of sweats as my pajamas.
Obviously, a gigantic change. It’s still pretty long obviously for most people, but I lost 6ish inches and so it was pretty drastic! I love it though. It feels so light and I can actually wear it in a ponytail now (I have very thick hair and ponytails hurt when my hair was really long, I had to tie it in a low knot).
Not very exciting to anyone but me 😉 Strangely pumped to do my run today with like half as much hair. I should shave a few seconds off my times now, right?!
What’s the most drastic haircut you’ve ever had? I once cut my hair from my waist to my ears. Ill-informed.
Favorite food after a long run?
