“Ten Ways I Break the Rules”.

You all know SUAR right? World renowned poop expert and blogger.
So today she has this post about breaking rules and ask her fan club to play along.
So why not?

First the running.  Intervals today on the treadmill.  7 x 400m. 5 miles total. I am supposed to do that at 5k pace.  But I can do them faster so I did.  7x400 at 8'20" with 90 sec in between each repeat.  On the last one, I got pretty tired and I almost fell off the machine.  It was a close call. My foot landed way too close to the edge and well I had to grab the handle for a second or else I would have ended up on the bike next to me.  I scared the crap out of the guy who was on that bike.  OOPSY.
I am happy with my progress with the speework.  I will stick to it.  I will never be super fast but I can be a faster turtle!

Do you watch Idol? Who do you like?
I love Paul, Casey, although last night not so much, and James Durbin.  The girls can all leave tonight it would be fine with me.

OK the rules game now.
I am Canadian and we are known for being rules followers.  I am like that for the most part, I cannot help it.
But I do things that I should not and don't do some I should like everyone else.

1. I don't sleep enough, 8 hours don't remember last time I slept that long.
2. I don't lock the front door when I am home and I don't lock my car either: that drives Bill my husband completely MAD.  Back home everyone does that, my mom can go to the grocery store and leave the door unlocked.  Here in California it is a big no no.
3. I drink coffee everyday even though I have GERD and my Dr says it is not good for me.
4. I don't go to the dentist every 6 mos for cleanings but I do floss.
5. I park in the red zone when I go pick Will up at school.
6. I don't separate the whites from the colors when I do my laundry.  Waste of my time, so far so good.
7. I use the treadmill for more then the 60 min limit at the gym.
8. I bring food and water in the movie theater. I use my biggest purse and voila!
9, I never rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Makes no sense to me, it is called a dishWASHER for a reason.
10, I never finish my antibiotics.  If I am fine after 7 days then I don't take the 3 days that are left.

#8--me too. Swedish fish and gummi bears are so much cheaper from the grocery store.

Nice 400s on the treadmill. I am very impressed. I'm getting excited for a 400m repeat workout at the track soon!

These were all good! Pretty sure I break all the same rules.

Christine said...

Hahaha, love the rule list! Sounds so familiar!! :)

Pam said...

I am loving reading everyone's lists!

I think EVERYBODY does the movie theater thing.

I'm so out of the loop but this looks fun! You don't finish your antibiotics?! This is great...this list. Love it! Your story about your dad and grandmother made me cry. Thank you so much for sharing Caroline! I love those kinds of comments...reall meat...not just "love the post" kinds of comments. :) I hope to catch up on here soon!

The only time I separate white and colors is when I have enough of each to make separate loads. After they've been washed a couple times, all the color has bled and you're good!

And I bring food/water into the theater all the time - yay for cargo shorts and big jackets!

I'm with you on #1, 2, 3, 8 and 9. My purse is like a freakin' suitcase when we go to the theater. I love these fun posts! I might have to play along when I get some time!! Hope you're having a great weekend:)
