Today, I went outside to "run."
(By run, I mean walk mostly and jog a little. Let's not try to kid anyone. I have not actually run since high school, and even then, my friend Crista and I opted for shot put over actually running in track. My friend Kris and I "ran" the track at school afterwards, but only so that we could watch the guys at football practice.)
So, back to my story. I went outside to "run" today. I did not want to, but I did it anyways because I have been taking some oils that are supposed to help with weight loss*. I don't want to waste these oils as I realize they are "helpers" and not miracle workers.
(Although, I have to say, I have already seen some miracles happen with oils. I believe God works through them, but I also believe God doesn't want me to be a lazy sack and does, in fact, want me to get off my butt and "run.")
|My view while I run. Not bad.|
So, I start "ruking". (I was trying to come up with run/walking but it sounds too much like another word if you change a letter..)
I immediately get tired because I am in bad shape.
I think, "That's it. I'm quitting."
Then I think, "Wait. I want to eat some M&Ms tonight. I need to work out at least enough to eat a small bag of M&Ms."
(I have a heart rate monitor that connects to a watch which tells me how many calories I am burning. It's a Polar watch, and I love it.)
As I continue to "work out," I start to think about how many bags I can eat as I keep going. Now, here is where the ridiculousness comes in...
Reader: Sarah, this was ridiculous a long time ago. You are way past ridiculous. You created the word "ruking."
I know, but it gets worse.
I recently bought a jumbo size bag of different kinds of M&Ms. (It was a weak moment in my life. I'm not proud of it.) Peanut Butter is 100 calories for a small bag, Peanut is 90 and Regular is 70. I literally spent 30 minutes "ruking" (you know you love it.) adding up the different varieties of M&Ms I could eat if I kept going.
This is all really sad. However, tonight I get to eat 4 bags of Regular M&Ms, 1 bag of Peanut, and one bag of Peanut Butter. Thats right! I burned 500 calories today.
The wise woman, would not go waste all of that on M&Ms, but I have never claimed to be wise.
Reader: We can tell by your posts that you are not wise. We never thought you were.
Anyways, It's a win/win. I get to eat candy tonight and not feel guilty.
I listened to some great music while I was outside today: "Timber" by Kesha and "Oceans" by Hillsong were two of many.
(Just for the record, I don't think you could find two more opposite songs if you looked. "Oceans" is a beautiful song about trusting in Christ during hard times and knowing that no matter what happens, His grace will abound. Timber is about "twerking." (Don't judge. You love the song too. It's crazy catchy.))
So, am I the only one that works out this way?
(* I am currently taking these oils for weight loss help, and yes, I made this awesome graphic. I know. I know. So cute.)
I will say this. I think they are working. We went to the city to stay with some friends and all we did was gorge ourselves on food. I did not gain a pound. I have lost 5 lbs in two weeks. I will report back my trusty readers. Don't you worry! I am here for you.)
