a gust of health & nutrition
For our three year anniversary yesterday, Willy got me some new workout gear (I’ve been needing some) and today he’s getting me the newest Rise Against CD :D

Anyway! What a roller coaster of a run this morning! I took one dog and ran the best that I have, EVER. I managed three laps around this soccer field, which is a mile and a half without walking! I normally last a lap and a half, at the most! I seriously felt unstoppable ^_^

Then went home to pick up my other two pups to finish up my morning jog… Didn’t even make the next street because I almost lost one of my dogs in the middle of a dog fight with two other LOOSE fully grown boxers. Thankfully I managed to gather my pups in one peace and walk back home with the help from some local neighbors who came to distract the dogs so I could leave. 

That’s the third time they’ve gotten out during my run but the first time I’ve had confrontation with my dogs. 

I feel I will have to call the city and complain. Today I looked closer (cause they actually got out when I had my first dog too but I managed to get then back to their yard and closed the gate), and they look too skinny. You can see their ribs and the male’s back looked dirty, the female’s nipples were so low and she looked at me so sad…I have a feeling they have them just to breed. It broke my heart… 

By the way, please excuse the dirty bathroom mirror selfie. We are currently redoing our bathtub so the entire restroom is a complete mess and I refuse to clean it up just to get gross less than 24 hours later.

#tbt to our superhero photoshoot. I have been with his wonderful man three incredible years, and in two and a half months I will be calling him my husband. Cannot believe the journey we have been through together, yet it’s only the beginning #threeyears #anniversary #fiancé #augustaandwilly

For some reason, the past week or so, I keep having flashbacks of my mom’s last few weeks alive.

It hasn’t really made me cry though…I just remember being at the hospital those five weeks or things she went through…I have a feeling it’s foreshadowing a huge emotional breakdown coming soon for me. Gah.

This just seems to be my process. I’m strong, and strong and strong…then I completely break down for a full 24 hours. I don’t want to do anything, even eat.

Hopefully this doesn’t happen though.

On a positive note, I ran three miles and did a good yoga workout. I also found a yoga foam block yesterday so I was excited to use that! Maybe if I start to feel the emotional breakdown I’ll just pull out the mat and concentrate on yoga.

It kind of bothers me when people come to our house and are scared of dogs.

My dad has friends over in the backyard and one, or some are scared or don’t like dogs..

All evening one of my dogs has been hysterical because all she wants is to go out but she’s forced to be locked up inside and watch all these people in her yard.

This is also the usual time during the day that they are outside. You know, for potty time and what not.

Willy and I left for an hour or so and then come home to dog pee ALL over the kitchen.

I can’t get mad. It’s these peoples fault. And I get to clean it up.

My dogs don’t hurt people :(

I was so proud of myself this morning. 

I finally woke up early to get a good yoga workout then went out for a run. I was focused on three miles…

After I got my first mile…I freaking fell!! I’ve never fallen before while running at this spot. I’m okay, just some blood on my knee and ankle….and dirt all over my back…oh and I think I left some dignity on the sidewalk….

I was so mad. I ended up cutting it short by half a mile from being so mad and then it was getting really hot. 

Ugh. 

Well I still plan on doing day four of insanity later today! 

Just under three months to my wedding now! Get fit!

Just did the insanity fit test.

Uh oh.

Let’s see if I can keep up this time. Just in time for my wedding :)

I’m so proud of myself!! 

One move I’ve been trying to work on is a headstand and I’ve been stuck on the transition for these two moves for a while…today I finally got both feet off the floor, several times too! They may not have been much longer than a solid three seconds, but still, yay!

The other pose I’m having the hardest time with is crow. Any suggestions?

In other news, I’ve managed to bump my two mile runs to THREE mile runs. Yay!!

You can’t help but feel graceful when you slip on water your dogs splashed all over the kitchen floor after your run with them.

Then you have the graceful battle scars to prove it.

Currently developing a nice purple bruise on my left knee, next to the slightly broken skin the floor ripped off. Then my right ankle is swollen and quite chubby compared to my left.

Darn dogs get too excited with their water bowl. My first thought after falling (and getting over the pain) was: glad I already got my run in today! Haha
