Day 21 – Worth Many Words

I had a whole other reason for taking this picture, but when editing it, I realized it tells more of a story.

The original reason was to capture something that has been happening now for 3 weeks.  For at least 5 times a week, I get on that big thing on the right – the Schwinn Elliptical.  For at least 30 minutes, I try to beat my best time.  I have recently hit an 8 minute mile which is something I haven’t seen in a LONG time.  To give you perspective, I was doing 10 minute miles less than a month ago.  I knew I could do better.  I continue to prove that to myself.  Nothing like tapping into my own competitiveness to find motivation.

Oh, and because I said I would publicly admit this:
Yes, honey, Miley Cyrus is a good CD to listen to while on the elliptical. 

But, I realized this picture tells other things.  Such as the fact a flash makes my Under Armor shirt see-through.  Who knew.

Also, it shows my distain for socks while running.  I hate socks when I’m running.  I have tried many types all promising they will work well – and all rub me the wrong way.  And, despite that, my shoes aren’t nearly as stinky as DJ’s shoes which are about to be banned from the house….again.

Behind me, you see the fact I have given up on keeping the back windows clean.  Two dogs, living in the land of rain – I have better things to do than keep up on nose prints and muddy paw prints.  I’ll wash them again in July after the rains end.
And, that freaking molding below the door needs to be dealt with. It looks like crap.  But, that is a debate I will have resume with the Hubby.  He claims if it gets properly caulked, it will look fine.  Yeah, I don’t believe it.  (Sorry, honey!)
