i have the best intentions, but sadly, i often fall short of those.
this morning i slept through my alarm, and thus didn't make it to my morning boot camp.
i even slept through the text my friend sent me (15 minutes into the class) telling me to get my buns out of bed and come work out.
like i said, i was really, really, like abnormally, tired last night.
i started feeling bad about the fact that i've been such a slacker with my workouts, that i had this brilliant idea of putting asher in the stroller, and going for a jog to pick up ruby from preschool...which is just over three miles away.
three miles is nothing, right?
right. if you're in somewhat decent shape.
but i am constantly being humbled and therefore reminded of how extremely out of shape i am these days.
can you see where this story is headed?
i gave myself plenty of time to run the three miles...ensuring i would not be late in picking ruby up.
what i did not consider, however, is what if i was not able to run the entire way, and had to actually stop and walk from time to time? i'n fact what if i ended up walking almost the entire first mile, and then had to run a six-minute-mile for the next 2.5 miles to make it on time?
let's just say when i realized my predicament, i ran like the wind, determined to be there when the kids filed out in their perfect single-file line to meet their parents.
but alas i had to come to terms with the fact that i'm just not what i used to be.
i stopped and called john.
he just laughed and said he'd be on his way.
he's my husband, he knows me and my lofty ambitions all too well. he mostly just laughs at me, but then always comes to my rescue.
i believe that every post deserves a photo, but i know better than to post something as ridiculous as how i must have looked huffing and puffing my way down the street, pushing a double stroller - occupied by only one child, sporting a pair red chuck taylors and goofy purple sunglasses.
rather, i will save myself (and all of you) the embarrassment, and just leave you with an image of my sweet little ruby. she had her valentine's party today, and here she is holding the darling box full of cards and candy, that she made at school.
