Let me tell you a little story over some coffee this morning….
We had an unfortunate loss on Wednesday, which explains me being missing yesterday. After work, I went downstairs to grab my bag and jacket. I remembered that I needed to grab some paperwork from the office to do some of the invoices and receipts from home. There was a ton of stuff ready for me to take, so in my hands I had my bag, my coat, a ton of papers in which I was looking for a bag to carry, and my cell phone. Of course, of all things to accidently drop, my iPhone decided to be the one to go. All I heard was “SMACK” on the concrete floor. It landed flat on the front side, like a belly flop.
I started freaking out and cursing, naturally. I mean, there were chards of glass (or whatever the hell that screen is made of) coming off on my fingers as I attempted to type, followed by a “no sim card” error every other second.
Thursday morning was spent trying to find the ATT store that, coincidentally, the GPS on my iPhone gave me wrong directions to, and then waiting 45 minutes while 2 rude people cut me in line. Finally, $200 later, I got my 16GB white iPhone.
I put the same case on it that I had, but obviously butter fingers needs something a little more protecting than that. I’ll get to it eventually, hopefully before I have another accident. I never bought insurance for my iPhone because I’ve literally had an iPhone since the day it came out and they’ve never offered me insurance, until yesterday. At that point, I wasn’t about to spend an additional $100 when I’ve only really had 2 accidents in the past 5 years. I’m sure by the time it happens again they’ll be on iPhone 10 and I’ll just want the new one anyway.
Siri is pretty cool though, I must say.
Anyway, after all of that aggravation, I needed a good run! I made it to the gym a little late, but I got it done! I followed the 5-4-3-2-1 treadmill workout, but I changed it up to look like this:
- 5 minutes @ 6.0
- 4 minutes @ 6.5
- 3 minutes @ 7.0
- 2 minutes @ 7.5
- 1 minute @ 8.0
- 5 minutes @ 6.1
- 4 minutes @ 6.6
- 3 minutes @ 7.1
- 2 minutes @ 7.6
- 1 minute @ 8.1
- 5 minutes @ 6.2
- 4 minutes @ 6.7
- 3 minutes @ 7.2
- 2 minutes @ 7.7
- 1 minute @ 8.2
- 5 minutes @ 6.3
- 4 minutes @ 6.8
- 3 minutes @ 7.3
- 2 minutes @ 7.8
- 1 minute @ 8.3
I basically increased by .1 every interval (15 minutes). I completed 7 miles with a 5 minute cool down for a total of 65 minutes.
After burning off some steam, I ate a quick lunch before having to head into work again.
Arugula, homemade walnut vinaigrette, shaved smoked gouda, raspberries, and chopped apples
With a side of
not so yummy crackers and yummus.
This morning started off with a great leg workout and a breakfast treat that I haven’t had in a while: Ashley’s quick bake. Today’s was mixed with shredded unsweetened coconut flakes and coconut butter instead of cinnamon, and then topped with coconut peanut butter and muddled blueberries & agave.
I promise, there is peanut butter under there!
I’m going to do some invoices and receipts and then head into work at 4. I’ll probably be cursing those pieces of paper the whole time, since it’s their fault that I dropped my iPhone (riiiiight). It could be worse, I could have my whole front yard dug up because of a leaking water pipe. Sorry Mom! I hope it’s fixed ASAP!
