More indecisiveness… plus overindulging galore!

First of all, if you’re new to me and you didn’t realize that my username was indecisiveari… allow me to point it out to you. It’s a VERY fitting name, because not only do I not like making decisions, but once I’ve made a decision I have a tendency to second-guess myself to death. Case in point – my blog title. I’ve only had it for what, a week and a half? Yeah I’m tired of it already. “New adventures”… what am I, a super hero? So I’ve been thinking about it since.. well, ever since I gave myself that blog title and have been trying to come up with a better one. And I think I’ve come up with some. Ready?

  • Running on Wishes
  • Running For My Dreams
  • Running My Dreams
  • Running to Dream

I’m obviously not creative.  I dunno, I like how running can be used two different ways – as in running, like I’ve gotten into running as my hobby, and also running as in fuel… as in, I’m fueled by my wishes, or the wishes of other people. Plus I like the word wishes, it feels optimistic. I don’t know. Maybe I’ve been reading too many running blogs lately… and anyway, this blog will never be a “running” blog.. I’m still waiting to see how long I keep up with running. But since it can mean MORE than running, I kind of think it’s okay?  Some people have been questioned the “wishes” part, we spent a while on twitter trying to brainstorm better words. And now that I think about it, should I be running ON wishes? That seems a bit sad. Dreams is a more hopeful word, running for my dreams seems more powerful but I don’t know that I have many dreams, or so it seems. That’s kinda sad now that I think about it. My main issue with running for my dreams is that it doesn’t fit on twitter… so then there’s running my dreams or running to dream, but does that even make sense?

Anyway, what do you think? If you don’t like it, help me come up with something better?

EDITED TO ADD: How about Chasing Down Hope? How does that sound? Thoughts?

Meanwhile, I was bad this weekend. Shopaholic should really be my username. You see, I went to lululemon and spent a bit more money than I should’ve. I kind of heart that store, the clothes always look so cute and fun, even though the price means I can never afford anything. For some reason that didn’t stop me yesterday and I bought this top, called the cool racerback tank, which I had been coveting online for the last few days:

Which prompted this response from my friend:

I also got a black run speed skirt, which is cute because it has ruffles at the back. I can’t get the pic of the skirt ruffles to show up so you’ll have to take my word for it. I kind of love running in skirts because I tend to believe that my thighs are so big that when I run, shorts tend to bunch. Pulling my shorts down mid-run is not my idea of fun so I stick to my skirts. Call me girly, whatever.

And I was also bad, food-wise. For the last 2 months I had been keeping track of my calories, etc to try to force myself to make better eating habits. For whatever reason I got lazy the last few days, which led to me eating things like this:

bunnyLove how Bay is trying to get in on it. Ears went first, of course.

There may also have been ice cream, Chick-fil-A, lots of Mexican food… um. I apparently have no self-control after being deprived from these yummy foods for the last 3 months… it makes me want to eat everything I haven’t been able to eat all at once. Not good.

photo 1 Marble Slab speaks the truth.

Oh yeah and lastly, I have started stalking the weather forecast for my upcoming 5k (t-minus 7 days, ack!)… earlier it was saying 60% chance of rain and I was freaking out. If it rains my friends can’t come watch (4 month old baby + rain don’t mix), plus I’ve never run in the rain. I couldn’t listen to music, I couldn’t use the Nike+ to tell me how much further I have to go (since I don’t have a Garmin yet).. disaster. And then today I checked it and now it says this:

photo 2 Much better.

Here’s hoping the rain chances go down even more. I know Texas needs rain, but I’d rather it not rain on the day of my very first 5k. Please and thank you.

    Hmmm… how come my fabulous comment wasn’t worth of re-publishing? :p
    I’m just so rhetorical!
    How about run-in-decisive?
    …or something along those lines?

    I love your blog name! I’m also super indecisive too. I’ve been trying to decide if I should make my twitter name match my blog name for like 2 months. I still can’t decide.
    I also have a weakness for Lulu. I need to go shopping soon!

    • Mm I’m not a fan of my username. And I like everything matching which is why I have problems.. I find a blog name that works but the twitter name is taken lol.

  3. Oh I agree. Nice rack!

  4. Why not use your username as your blog name?

    I can’t believe I didn’t have a chocolate bunny on Easter! It’s a requirement.

    April 25, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    • Meh I’m actually trying to get away from my username… Wanting to get back to more anonymous lol.

      And no chocolate bunny?! So sad.

    Psh, trust me – if the forecast is for rain, then it won’t rain a drop! LOL!

    Cute top – man, that store is expensive – you need to hit it up when they have sales.

    I liked your original blog name indecisiveari much better – but that’s just my opinion. Maybe you should take a poll?

    I love your kitty cat – so cute trying to sniff at the chocolate and ending up in the photo.

    April 25, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    • Ha not over here.. here it’ll be a slim chance of rain and I’ll think it won’t rain.. and then suddenly it’s pouring first thing in the morning!

      I wish they had sales! Expensive but I would have to say worth it.

      I almost took your advice on the poll but I’ve come up with the new name and I’m sold on it. And I love my kitty cat too. 🙂

  6. Looking forward to seeing your new blog name.

    And yay for Marble Slab!!

    April 25, 2011 at 7:06 pm

  7. Marble slab is my weakness!!!
    LOVE your new top. I bought about 5 new running tops right before I broke my foot and I can’t WAIT to get to wear them!
    I would give you my input on blog titles but obviously I’m not very creative my self so I wouldn’t be any help! : )

  8. Hey there! I just figured out how to follow your blog! Thanks for becoming a follower on mine!

    I am SO indecisive as well! Ask any of my friends: I am horrible to shop with because I keep changing my mind.

    Marble Slab..dangerous that they are opening one in my town…

    April 25, 2011 at 10:02 pm

    • Aw thanks for following my blog… I LOVE your blog! And indecisive people rock! 🙂

      You didn’t have a Marble Slab before?? How did you survive!

      April 27, 2011 at 8:34 pm

  9. Um… I love that top! I’ve always been a shopper but lately I’ve been buying running clothes like the world is going to end tomorrow or something. I wish I could wear them all the time!

    May 11, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    • Ha ha I totally agree! Although my tops tend to make me look pudgy so I don’t think I’d want to wear them all the time.
