Espresso, Treadmill Racing and Fears

Monday, December 30, 2013
You know what a delicious post workout treat is…

This double espresso that I am currently enjoying.
I don't know if I've ever told you guys about the Nespresso machine we bought. It's unbelievable. I'm not big on the pod coffee machines, but holy crap this one is it! The Nespresso espresso is really good quality and is extremely delicious. The flavors are full and strong, just like I like my espresso to be. Even the decaf!
We also got the frother, but it doesn't get much use since I can't have dairy. I've tried to froth almond milk, but it doesn't froth. It just warms it up. Although, sometimes I do it to just warm it up and put it in my espresso.

I had a fantastic workout today. FYI.
Six miles on the ol' treadmill, and some strength training. The guy next to me was trying to race me. I do this to people a little bit. You know, peek over to see how fast they are running and start comparing it to your speed. Then speed up if you can.
But this guy was seriously trying to race. I was negative splitting every mile, for my run today. Every time I would speed up, he would blatantly look over to see my speed, and he would try to match my speed. This went on for quite a few miles.

Guess who won….
Silly boy.

Today's post is about fears. Fears are interesting things. In my 31 years, I've found that peoples fear of "something" can be one of the biggest motivators in why they behave the way they do, why they do or don't do certain things, and what/who they believe in.

Just something interesting to think about.

Anyways…these are not all of my deepest, darkest fears.
But they are some of the fears that I have.

1. The Veterinarian.
Every time we take a dog to the vet, it somehow ends up costing hundreds of dollars. Earlier this year Harper ate some stuffing from a toy and it ended up costing us thousands of dollars. Just for tearing up a toy like every puppy in the world does. Every time there is a chance that one of the dogs does something remotely abnormal, I get REALLY worried and start checking the pet savings fund and thinking of odd jobs I can do to earn some extra income. I completely panic. So if you see me on a street corner trying to earn some extra cash, odds are one of my dogs is scratching his ear or hasn't pooped in 18 hours.

2. Being attacked at my car in the dark.
I have no idea where this fear came from but it's real. I'm even afraid of this happening in my own driveway. Let's just say I'm very aware, everywhere I go.

3. Someone getting access to our bank accounts.
This has happened to both PJ and I before. Luckily it was when I was younger and I didnt' have any money. Now I track and check our accounts obsessively. I could tell you off the top of my head what the last 5 deductions should be in any of our accounts.

4. Being somewhere and finding myself stranded without food.
I always always always have food in my bag and in my car.

5. Peeing my pants on accident.
I also always have an extra pair of underwear in my bag and in my car.

6. Bed bugs.

7. Those haunted houses that are set up around halloween, specifically designed to scare the crap out of you.
I love scary movies and scary stories. Especially realistic ones that could actually happen. But oh my god do not even ask me to go to a Fright Fest, Trail of Terror, Death Manor, anything like that. The thought scares me so much that I want to throw up.

There you have it. Some of the things that I am afraid of.

What are you afraid of?

  1. Snakes, spiders, my car careening off a cliff. I have more fears then I care to admit, but those are the biggest ones.
