Boy or a Girl

Ok. Let me just say that I am a female. I do girly things. Like enjoy shopping, paint my nails, wear make-up, and wear lots of pink.

Today, I did my scheduled 5 mile workout on the treadmill at Ghetto Renew. (5miles, 66 minutes, right on my target.) I was feeling good and could have extra miles because I felt I had the energy to do more and nothing was really hurting. No knee pain, no major muscle pain. I felt, dare I say, athletic.

It could have been the placebo effect of wearing something new and comfortable. I was wearing a new dress from Athleta. (If I take this whole running thing seriously past this next year, I totally need to buy more of these. LOVE THEM!) Black dress with black compression shorts underneath. Black Lunarglide Nikes and a black Adidas mesh cap. I love wearing everything except the hat. I think all hats make me look a little dykey. But it keeps the sweat and my hair out of my face better then a headband and I have chin-length hair, so a ponytail isn't a good option. A young boy was walking with his dad from Stan's and asked him if I was a girl. He asked his dad if I was a girl 3 times as I walked out of Ghetto Renew past them to my car. I was mildly embarrassed. But I know I look sorta boyish in a hat, but I have red fingernails and carrying a pink cell phone and pink Ipod with pink earbuds. While wearing a dress.

I actually planed on wearing this outfit on Saturday for the Athena 10k. This was my test run to make sure I did not have any chaffing or whatever. I just bought this outfit for the race. Now I think I need to just scratch that and wear maybe something a little more girly in color. Like this this skirt in the Jazzy Jam purple color with a purple top that I have that matches perfectly and maybe buy a colored visor instead of a hat or something. Gosh. I don't know.

I usually don't care how I look when I work out. I know I look bad, all sweaty and stinky. But now, I think I am going to have a complex about it from here on out.

Do you worry about how others perceive you when you work out?

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday to me.

You know how I celebrated the start of my birthday on midnight at work? (I actually am not taking my birthday off. Why can't all birthdays be on a weekend day?)

Burpees, pushups, squats, crunches. One for every year. So, I did 22 of each.

Ok, 24. ;-)

Sunday, for the BFs birthday, we had a shot of Wild Turkey. And our birthday shot (which I found out Vista Bar doesn't do free birthday shots - shame on them! Looks like Neurolux is my preferred birthday celebration location because I know they give free birthday shots) made me want to really enjoy another, but I refrained.

Actually, I think this weekend, I will be taking in a cocktail or 4 at the Modern.

I also made sure to sign up for lots of restaurants deals for birthday goodies this year because I like being a cheapskate. I like it when places give you a week (or all month) to use the goodies and not just on your birthday day. I don't want to go for a free b-day meal alone on my birthday at lunch, wh…

Kiss Me Organics Organic Dandelion Root Tea - With Hibiscus & Cinnamon Review

This post is sponsored by Kiss Me Organics and no other compensation was given.

I love Dandelion. They are not really a weed, but they have so many health benefits. The BF started eating them a few years ago. And he picked the first one this last week for me to eat. He has even gotten some of his guy friends to start picking them and eating them regularly. Serious! I am thankful for this tea because I don't have to eat them out of the yard, unless I want to. They are full of nothing but health. This tea tastes way better then a flower out in the yard!
