This whole situation really got me thinking. When you know you are constantly in the public eye, why would you do these kinds of things? It is so easy to have your computer hacked, your phone stolen or click the wrong button revealing your dirty little secrets to the whole world. I really wish I could get inside the brain of a person like that and see why they do it. Why would you risk your career and your family to send some random person you’ll never meet a lewd photo? Is that really how you get your kicks? I am baffled, I just don’t get it.
Enough about wieners, let me tell you about my new favorite breakfast. I picked up a box of Kashi Strawberry Fields when I was at Trader Joe’s the other day and oh my gosh, I love it! I’ve always been a huge fan of the Special K cereal with strawberries, but this one blows Special K out of the water. It doesn’t get soggy once you add the milk which is my biggest pet peeve when it comes to cereal.
After a bowl of my new fav cereal, I laced up my sneakers and went for a run. There aren’t really any good places to run in my neighborhood, so I usually just run to a park a few blocks away and run around the park and the track inside the park. This park however is located right next to the on/off ramp to the highway. While not only are my lungs getting filled with yummy polluted air, the red light at the end of the block seems to attract tons of creeps. There are very few things in life that I hate more than feeling objectified by a random man and the fact that he feels that he is entitled to doing that to me. I think I’m gonna start running with eggs so I can toss them at jerks who honk at me. I really want to find a new place to run, but I really want to avoid just running down the streets of my neighborhood, especially because it is hilly and it makes it a lot more difficult for me at this point, where I’m just starting out.
I managed to ignore my surroundings, listen to my music and get a good run in. I ran 2.5 miles in 35 minutes and I’m really starting to see how much of running is really mental. When I zone out and just run, I get through my running section with no trouble. When I focus on my run and think about it, it seems like I’m running forever and that the section will never end. I’m also getting a little nervous because the running sections are getting longer and longer. I feel like I’m psyching myself out before I even start.
The rest of my day was spent outdoors with munchkin. We spent a lot of time playing with trucks in the yard and went on a bike ride and for a walk with his stroller, not in it.
As much as I’m enjoying that he is getting older and that we can have a lot much fun and different experiences together, I really don’t want him to grow up. I really hope to have a good relationship with him when he’s older. The kind of relationship I wish I had with my parents, but for one reason or another, lack. I guess only time will tell.
Moral of the Day: Keep your wiener to yourself!
