6 Impossible Things

Rough night. Hubby gave himself food poisoning, and Grace has sinus funk. Grace spent most of night in bed with us. She's a kicker. I don't think a single part of me avoided getting walloped or bonked by some random little person's body parts. On top of it, I feel like I'm trying to fight gambu off too.

Since hubby was home sick today, he agreed to lay on couch with Grace & be miserable together long enough for me to go to gym and get a run in.

I've been wondering about the safest, most effective & efficient way to get a 30 min 5k in my reach. Still trying to figure it out without killing myself.

Saw the new Alice & Wonderland on Saturday. Meant to go when it first came out as my 50 lbs lost treat, but that didn't happen till a month or so later. Now that I'm almost half a pound away from being 1/2 way to my goal weight, it seemed like a good time. There was a phrase in there that inspired me. "I believe in 6 impossible things before breakfast. COUNT THEM!"

Here are mine:
1) I can run a 5 minute mile

2) I can qualify and run in the Boston Marathon

3) I can run a sub-20 min 5k

4) I can reach my goal weight of 135

5) I can get my house clean before I leave on vacation next month

6) I can find happiness and learn to like myself

Remember: at the end of the day, every magnificent hero must still face great adversity to get from Once Upon a Time... to Happily Ever After. What dragon will YOU slay today?
