This is what happens when your husband takes your iPhone.

He might kill me for putting that on the blog, but that’s what he gets! 😉

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope your day has been a good one! Not much in the food department to share with you today because I’m saving it for a WIAW post! But I do have a few random questions to ask you guys. These are things I’ve been pondering lately and wanted to get some other opinions.

Why does coffee always taste so much better in the morning?? I fixed a cup this afternoon to help wake me up, and it just didn’t taste as good or sit right in my stomach. I always enjoy coffee so much more in the morning!

Why, after a day of way too many “indulgences,” is it so much harder to get to the gym for a workout?? Sunday I ate wayyy too many sweets. So you would think that I’d be more motivated to workout Monday morning. NOPE. We straight up skipped our Monday morning workout because I couldn’t bare the thought of getting up at 5 am.

Why do I feel “unworthy” of calling myself a runner?? I’ve only been running for about 7 months, and even though I’ve done two 5ks and a 5 mile race (and placed 2nd is two races!) and am training for a half marathon, I still feel like I shouldn’t call myself a runner. This needs to stop. I mean, I RUN. Therefore, I AM A RUNNER! 🙂

Why does pumpkin go good with everything as long as it’s fall?? I don’t know, but I don’t care! Bring on pumpkin season!!

Why do I let calorie counting control my eating habits?? Ugh… something I struggle with daily. I think it’s a control issue with me. I know that if I’m counting calories, then I have control over how many I put in my body. But if I stop counting, then I let the food control me and it’s like I haven’t eaten in weeks! I feel the need to try every “unhealthy” thing before I go back to calorie counting again. This doesn’t happen as often as it used to because I’ve worked really hard at getting away from that mindset. Oh but it definitely creeps in every now and then. *ahem, Sunday*

Why am I always LESS hungry on days that I run than days I don’t?? I think I read somewhere that exercise suppresses the appetite? It’s weird to me though. You would think that after burning calories, you would feel more hungry?

Proof of my 3 mile run after work today!

Why do I sweat in just one oval shaped spot??


Someone give me a WHY? question, and I’ll do my best to answer!

    no idea but coffee is so perfect in the morning. I am the same way with treats, I seriously eat terrible and have no desire to work out. pumpkin everything will be at my face soon enough. i luckily have never calorie counted and I am glad, I just think it is a hard habit to break.
