Thank you so much for all your supportive comments on my fear of dogs post! I tend to overreact (just ask my husband) so I loved all the validation your comments gave me.
Last night was incredibly traumatic for me. When I was moving one of our end tables over to my bike to get ready for my trainer ride, the heavy, wooden box that we keep all our remotes and crap in flew off and nailed my foot. After a lot of screaming and cursing, I remembered I was a blogger and took a photo.
I have yet to meet anyone who's pain tolerance is anywhere close to as low as mine (in fact, I really don't even understand what people mean when they talk about a "high" pain tolerance). This "injury" had me moaning in the fetal position on the floor for several minutes.
Somehow I managed to pull it together and do my 90 minutes, which again I'm calling 20 miles, on the bike trainer. For some reason, I was getting really mentally overwhelmed with the time. The idea of riding for 90 minutes (or, soon, more) was freaking me out. Doesn't really make sense because I'll spend 90 minutes at the gym and not think anything of it, but I guess then I'm doing a variety of activities. I made it through though, and this was the first time I stayed on the bike for the entire time, without a drink or bathroom break or anything.
This morning, Lily and I did an easy six mile run in my neighborhood. Not much to say about that, so here's some stuff I'm obsessed with this week. If you want me to do you a favor, try one or all of these out. They are all awesome, I assure you.
It's making the time go by while I'm on the bike trainer. When I finish the series, I might need to rewatch my old Dawson's Creek DVDs.
Lady Gaga Pandora Station (on my phone!)
I have yet to give a thumbs down on this. How did I just create this station this week? It's really helping me not hate life during report card week.
Hard Boiled Eggs
Eric read in some men's magazine that you should eat them, and he made some, so I made a huge batch to eat with my lunch this week, and they are so salty and delicious. Plus, Kara Goucher said to eat one a day in her book. Since I'm eating at least 2 a day, I expect to be running 5 minute miles at my half marathon this Sunday.

Cappuccino Peanut Butter

I know that's not exactly new information, but I swear he is looking better and better each week on Biggest Loser. My usual text conversations during the show with my sister Darcy and BFF Casi used to be about what the contestants were up to, now it's things like how great Dolvett looks in his weigh in outfit, and how freaking white his teeth are. Plus, everyone's day just got better as a result of looking at this picture. You're welcome.
What's your pain tolerance like?
What is something you can't get enough of this week?
