You know what happened to yesterday’s post? I fell asleep. Pathetic.
As I explained to Mr The Rake, the weekend spent watching Grey’s Anatomy was a roller coaster ride of emotion. Over 2 seasons, those doctors are up, and up, and down, and up, and dead, and up, and plane crashed, and car crashed, and down, and up, and legless, and up, and happy, and partying, and sleeping with each other, and in a shooting, and at another funeral, and sleeping together again, and divorcing, and up, and up, and down again.
It’s too much. Too much emotion in two days.
With all of that emotional turmoil, it’s no wonder I fell asleep.
This means I’m a day late for Mental Monday. So let’s just go back in time for a sec, ok?
Here’s how Mental Monday works – you can link up (it takes a tiny fraction of blog space), or you can put your answers below. You take a negative thought, and you think of something positive instead – it doesn’t have to be related. It can be about anything, and it just encourages people (like crazy me) to think about something good, even at the start of a busy week.
My negative: I am terrified about getting results back for uni. It doesn’t matter what I get, but I hate getting results. I don’t even know when they come out. I don’t want to know.
My positive: Today, I got back into some speed work. I hit the treadmill. Hard.
I went through a period of hating Christmas. But now I love it. And this year is the first year Mr The Rake and I have been together that we will get to wake up in our own house on Christmas morning. Even better is that I now go to a gym that is open on Christmas day AND I am now a runner – which can be done outdoors. Any day of the year (yeah, I know you’re reading this Rake. I’m not apologising).
It’s time for another challenge.
Dear social media lovers, get ready for #holidayaday. Some of my favourite blog and twitter friends and I have created a December Instagram challenge.
Here’s how it works – take a photo on each day in December that fits the day’s theme. Tag it with #holidayaday and the theme (e.g. #drink) and you’re in! Simple, fun, and you get to meet a whole new group of IG friends.
Here’s the group – go and add us!
Abby from Back at Square Zero (IG: backatsquare0)
Rebecca from Rebecca Roams (IG: RebeccaRoams)
Kat from Sneakers and Fingerpaints (IG: katsnf)

Mindy at Road Runner Girl (IG: roadrunnergirl)
Gina at Noshing on Asphalt Instagram / Twitter: AsphaltNosher
It’s on – from 1st December, be ready to tag your photos.
I ran a double! Running is on the up. I hit up some intervals this morning, and then went for another run after work. Don’t worry – I’m taking a day off running tomorrow.
Admit it – are you a Grey’s fan?
Do you ever run doubles?
What’s your Mental Monday Moment?
