imacookiefiend returns

Hello everyone! It seems like forever since my last post. I had given up on blogging because my life has been a little chaotic for the last few months and it seemed like I just didn’t have time to do anything really for myself.

I’ve been trying very hard to make myself actually do things like go to birthday parties when I don’t really feel like leaving the house and go to movies and brunches but I haven’t quite managed to make myself go to the gym.

I think in part it’s because things have been so busy that once I get home I just want to hangout with my Landshark a.k.a german shepherd who is also a cookie fiend.

The great thing about her is that she gets me out of the house and takes me on long walks. I joke that she was my coach and got me to go from couch potato to 5k road race finisher last month, but it’s true.

Although she is still rambunctious and a little unruly on walks she loves being outside and is happier when she is active. Taking her on long walks helps keep her out of mischief and also helps keep shoes and furniture intact.

She will be turning 2 in just a few months and is still just a big fluffy puppy with so much energy and love.

When there is so much craziness in the world, she reminds me of how important it is to do good if only to be deserving of a fraction of all the love she shares with me and all her humans everyday.

Whatever journey you’re on, keep at it because you’ll come out stronger in the end.

Thanks for reading!

5K

April 27 is here…I’m not sure if I’m excited or nervous, but there’s no turning back now. I’m not going to lie, I have not been training as one should for a run, as I have been struggling lately. But last week RubySlippers had a brief and stern chat with me saying I was out of control with my eating. So this Thursday after I returned from eating all the sinfully delish Mickey treats at Disney, we had our first workout together. Thinking back it may not have been the best of ideas, as my legs still hurt.

But I’ve made enough excuses for myself and now it’s time to pay and start putting in the work. So ready or not, this 5K is happening! I wish A.G. was running it with me, but there’s this thing called work that will keep her from joining me as I run my first 5K.

Well guys, wish me luck! I hope to be back to tell you all about it 🙂
