life and times of a lazy cook

figuring out life and my way around the kitchen, one misadventure at a time.

Archive for the tag “winter”

dear bloggie,

the past four days have been an emotional roller coaster of both terrible and amazing life events

in the terrible column:

  • going to happy hour the night before your first 5k. subsequently drunk ordering pizza (especially when you’re lactose intolerant), and meeting friends at the neighborhood bar.
  • running a 5k hungover. i thought my tummy was going to explode after the first mile

    after finishing. ready to kill someone..

  • an emotionally draining letter from my ex-boyfriend.
  • subsequent mean emails from my ex-boyfriend.
  • spending $250 on textbooks
  • unreliable car betteries.

now for the amazingness that has been my life:

  • finishing my first race in 28:49. not bad for a hungover runner!
  • this idea:

    individually packaged cheddar bunnies in correct portion sizes. then have your roommate hide the big bag from you. keeps me from eating a whole box in one sitting!

  •  my classes! i LOVE them! well, mostly
  • nice guys who are attentive and respectful and wonderful.post-5k wine and dance parties. i highly recommend it.
  • the weather. this winter has been wonderful in terms of not having a blizzard yet.
  • homemade cookies.

i’m busy getting into the swing of things with school, but life is looking up in pretty much every way.

workout?

so here’s todays dilemma. i’ve been exhausted for the past few days. i mean really truly, i-can’t-get-off-the-couch, tired-to-the-bone exhausted. i’m not too surprised, last week i had a final paper due–which came with the usual stress and sleep deprivation and i did not treat myself very well over the weekend (i.e. i barely slept 8 hours between friday and saturday nights). i ran friday, sunday and monday.

bahhhhh i’m tired. boo hoo. i’m feeling a lot better after 10 hours of sleep last night, but the new question for the day is to workout or not workout?

i have class this evening and i could go the the gym after for a short 30 minute elliptical session. OR i could walk the 2 miles to school instead of taking the bus. i’m less keen on the second option since it will be sunset/twilight/dark by the time i’d be walking (which is like 4:30-5, thanks wisconsin).

i’m trying to vary my workouts a little so it’s not all running all the time. however, i don’t want to over stress my body and i’d like to have a nice long awesome run tomorrow.

sooooooooo to gym it or not to gym it?
