6 Miles to Make a Girl Feel Good

Work is getting busier and busier. The busier it is, the happier I am. I love it when my day flies by. It's great! Other than that, my work day was normal. After work, I went to the gym. It was another day on the treadmill. I wasn't really looking forward to it. I hate being on the treadmill, but sometimes that's my only option (today was 98 and too hot to run outside).

My first 2 miles were pretty boring. I wasn't wanting to do this and for some reason I let myself look down at the time. It was gong by so slowly, and I knew I had about 1 hour a running time. The last 4 miles flew by. I couldn't believe how fast it was going by. The next thing I knew, it was 6 miles and time to head home. I finished my 6 miles in 1:05. I'm pretty happy with my time.

I got home and needed to cool off before I could take a shower. I had a beer with the hubs and enjoyed some tv time with him while I cooled off. We had family coming over to take us out to dinner for our birthdays. I was so tired after my run, I just wanted to relax.

I took my shower and felt a little bit more awake. It was nice to see family and go out to eat. We went to one of our favorite Chinese restaurants and enjoyed our food and family. I've been eating so poorly this week, I knew I was only going to eat a portion of my food. I ordered the Avocado chicken with some rice.

It was so good! Yes, I know this isn't really Chinese food, but it's my favorite. If you notice, I am using a fork (we all did). I only use chop sticks in the privacy of my home. I'm not that good with them, and it's kind of embarrassing. I have my own and am still learning. I can get almost everything in my mouth, but not enough for public use.

I think we're going to watch It's Always Sunny and enjoy the last piece of ice cream cake. Don't forget to enter my great giveaway. I have another planned, possibly for my 100th's coming up soon. Have a great night everyone!!


  1. Avocado Chicaken sounds more like a Mexican dish. Treadmills are strange in regards to time.

  2. I haven't had chinese food of any kind in eons.

  3. I love using chopsticks. I should get some for home... Glad you had a good run in the end!

  4. Great 6-miler and glad you had a nice dinner out!

  5. I am really awful at using chopsticks, hehe. But I'm trying to get better since my fav ethnic restaurants don't offer forks!

  6. That looks really yummy!
