Not going to lie – I woke up this morning in a small panic, wondering why exactly I thought it would be a good idea to register for a triathlon last night. Visions of strangling wetsuits and bike crotch danced through my mind as I stood in the kitchen, nervously gulping a cup of lukewarm coffee. What, exactly, have I gotten myself into?
I’ll let you know if I feel more confident after my workout later. This kind of feels like ripping off a band-aid. I WANT to get recommitted to exercise; I just need to DO it.
A fueling breakfast:
I was in the mood for hash browns, but I guess we tossed the regular potatoes back in the cart last night, because all I had to work with was sweet potatoes.
Hence: sweet hash browns!
I cooked a few chopped potatoes in a hot wok with some oil, water, and sweet onions. Towards the end, I added in salt, pepper, and a drizzle of honey.
With bread, Italian herb spread, and eggs on the side.
Also on the agenda for the day:
- Work on my book… I am so behind on my deadline and starting to panic a little bit. The only way this book is going to be written is if I actually sit down and write (duh). So I better get cracking.
- Clean… How does your house get so dirty when you’re on vacation?
- Cut the puppies’ nails. The dogs’ talons have reached new lengths. Must clip. Must be prepared for doggie freak outs.
Nail cuttin’ is quite the dramatic affair at our house.
I guess today is a “Just Do It” kind of day in terms of workouts, work, and nail grooming. Gotta just plunge in and get it done!
Nail cutting is the one thing I don’t miss about having a dog. I could never stand it when you’re trying to help and they just welp.
