My Pursuit of Happiness and Skinny Jeans

My journey to a smaller jean size

Back to the Grind

on August 13, 2012

So, holidays are over and it’s back to work…and it sucks. Don’t get me wrong, I really love my job, but it is just so hard to come back after vacation. There is so much to do and it’s just right back into the craziness, it’s like I was never away. Ugh…anyway…it is what it is.

Actually, it wasn’t that bad of a day at the office. I spent a good deal of time going through the mountain of emails that came in last week. I have a feeling that tomorrow will be the bad day as people figure out that I’m back and start asking for things again! Fun, fun!

Today was a rest day in my training schedule. Wohoo! I love me a rest day! Tomorrow I’ve got a 4k steady run to do. I think I will have to get up and do this before work since I’ve got golf at 5 for the second round of my match play competition, which means I won’t have time to run after work. It may be a treadmill run since its supposed to be raining most of the night and tomorrow morning too. I’m not a big fan of the treadmill. I ran quite a bit on it in the early stages of training for my last half marathon and then I started running outside and realized how much better it is to run outside. Now I dread having to resort to the treadmill, but I might dislike running in the rain more, so the treadmill may win!


Tonight my kids officially became cooler than I am. They have iPhones! Their birthdays are coming up so we got them iPhones as their gifts. We got them a bit early since Future Shop has the iPhone 4S on sale and we were able to get the Rogers store to match the price. They were both pretty excited to get the phones and spent quite a bit of time setting things up and getting some apps onto it. I am kind of jealous that they’ve got these phones. All I kept thinking about was cool running apps that are available for the iPhone. Maybe I will get lucky and they will let me borrow it for a run.


I’m definitely going to get the iPhone 5 when it comes out. The latest rumor today says that will likely now be towards the end of September. Apple is making some sort of big announcement on September 12th, and the the speculation is that the new iPhone will be released the next week, I’m hoping!!!

Have you heard any iPhone 5 rumors?

Are your kids cooler than you are?

  1. LOVE my iPhone 🙂 My hubby got his last November and I am so stubborn that I insisted it wasn’t that “cool” 😉 But 6 months later I caved and got one and had to admit to him that it was in fact a cool phone!! I have heard the rumors that the iPhone 5 will be coming out in the fall….the apps are awesome!

      Do you have any run apps? I’ve heard about Nike + run and map my run. Also a Hal Higgin one. Im dying to get one. My one worry is the on screen keyboard, but I hear you get used to it. I will have to see if the kids will let me play with theirs! Maybe if i am lucky they will give me their old iPods since theirs is way better than my old nano!


      • I use the MMR app when I do bike rides an walk. I really like it. A friend of ours uses the Nike+ app. He likes it. That’s what I was worried about was the touch screen typing! That was the one thing that kept me debating, but you do get used to it really quickly and auto correct is a life saver :)!!
