Like a jacked up rainbow bright.

The weather has been so unpredictable lately that i have been packing my running bag to accommodate any situation.  (20 degrees?  80 degrees?  40mph winds?  rain? burning sun? all of these can happen in a 24 hour period in Chicago)  Sadly this means i just don't seem to care how i look anymore, and thats when situations like this happen.
Oh yes.  That is light blue, dark blue, purple, red, hot pink, and sparkle all rolled into one.  This also happened to be the day where two people driving by honked at me, either because they were coworkers who recognized me (which is embarrassing, because i try to at least tone it down to three colors at work) or because they thought they were seeing a double rainbow and just felt the need to honk.  


I have been feeling sapped this week, probably from Matt's situation, as well as the TERRIBLE allergies that have been occurring. I do not want to cook when i get home from work.  I feel bad too, because when i don't cook, neither of us eat healthy.  After the 9 mile run (and then an hour and a half in traffic, thank you Chicago!)  All i wanted was a martini and popcorn.
Reasons i'm not a health blogger.
 So yeah, that's my life.  The highlight of my day was returning from making the popcorn to see this:
My dog is so weird.  


Also, i am making myself into a meme- I am now "fails at healthy living girl"  you saw it here first, folks.

  1. you are right, a salad should be 50% croutons ;)

    (the rest should be 25% cheese, 10% bacon, 10% salad dressing and 5% lettuce and other various veggies ;) )

  2. OMG cutest dog!!!
    I smother my salads in dried fruit goodness. Oh and cheese. Lots of cheese.

  3. Love the pic of your dog on the laptop. Very cool. My dog is not as mobile, he still uses the desktop in the office. :-)

  6. I always like to tell myself that what I wear when running doesn't count. Also, this week's allergies have been OUT OF CONTROL for me! I was in a haze all week, last night I slept 12 hours and ended up working from home. Productive day having no one bother me and now I am feeling so much better!

    1. I actually never want to eat after a run, so i have to force it in. popcorn is just so much easier to force, haha

  9. Ha I load my salad with croutons too, if you get the right kind they are the best part of ever salad. How far/long do you run on avg?, I've been pulling 5.5 in 60 minutes.
