It's like my running mojo got ran over by a bus

It's just not there.  I can't get excited about it.  I know we all go thru periods like this, but it's kind of sucking the life out of me.  In my mind, I know that if I just make myself get out there I'll feel like 8 million bucks when I'm done.  And the weather has been positively glorious this week.  I have no (good) excuse aside from flat out laziness.  GAH.  I'm sick of feeling like this. 

Could someone please come kick my ass? 

I've been setting my alarm to get up and run at 5:00 am, but I, without fail, reset the alarm for 6:00 am every morning.  I go to bed too late, so I'm not in any mood to get my ass out of bed that early.  Hell, I'm not ready to get up at 6:00!  I need to figure out how to make getting to sleep earlier a habit, and a priority.  Part of the problem is that my DH is a night owl, and when he comes to bed he wants to watch TV for a bit.  And he watches the most annoying loud shit at bed time.  Like Family Guy.  Not a quiet show.  I don't want to be that giant bitch wife who is like "I know I've been ok with this for 10+ years, but I'm no longer allowing TV in our room."  Um, no.  It's not fair to ask him to totally change because I have decided to totally change.  We need to find a happy medium.  Maybe we go to bed and watch TV, but we do it earlier?  I'm not sure.  Maybe I can convince him to enjoy quiet, boring shows?  That seems pretty damn unlikely.  :D 

I found a core workout for runners that I want to try...  I know my core is weak.  Not only does it look like a jiggly bouncy house floor, it doesn't even have a good base underneath it!  It's all stuff I can do right now, even without being able to put pressure on my wrist.  I shall start this bad boy tonight. 

Oh, we've been loving the Griddler!  I may make breakfast paninis tonight!  How fun and tasty is that? 


  1. As for the TV problem, my hubby is the same way. But instead of loud-ass Family Guy, he listens to loud-ass shoot-em-up, kill somebody movies. He is also a night owl...I, on the other hand, am not.
    Here's how I work it - I go to bed, turn on QVC and fall asleep. He comes to bed later, turns on whatever he wants and I'm dead enough to the world, that the guns and sirens and screaming, dying people don't bother me.
    So, no, we don't go to bed at the same time, but it works for us :)

    Good luck - Change is hard!

  2. It definitely works out when we do it that way! The only problem with this is that I tend to get up before him then and it nixes a lot of nookie time. :D
