Besides the obvious things I can't live without like my family, friends, Todd, water, food, etc., the top 2 materialistic items I can't live without are:
1. Lip Gloss (specifically Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lip gloss)
At any given time I can literally have 4-5 lip glosses in my purse as well as a few others on my kitchen counter and at my desk at work. I'm aware I'm seriously addicted to this stuff. My lips feel naked without that glossy feeling. I probably reapply multiple times per hour--I hate if I don't have it with me and I'm licking my lips because they feel dry.
2. My Blackberry
Now that I'm a Blackberry owner (as of 3 months ago), I now know why it's referred to as a "Crackberry." I don't know how I would survive some days at work without checking my email, surfing the internet, or checking facebook status updates (just kidding about facebook....kinda). Plus, it's obviously a phone and who can't live without that? My question though is how did people live without cell phones? I mean, I didn't have one until my freshman year of college but I can't remember what it was like before they were around.
And in reality, I also can't live without my running shoes.
Quick update about my Boston training: My leg is feeling about 75% but still a little tender on the "hot spot" so I'll probably take this whole week off from running again & maybe try to run easy next week. I've had 2 great cross training workouts yesterday & this morning. Yesterday was 1 hr "tempo" on the elliptical followed by lifting total body and this morning was 30 min of "hills" on the elliptical followed by 45 min spinning and core work. I'll post on Friday more specifics of my cross training workouts.
