Today was the epitome of lazy days. I really did nothing (except for the fact that I’m watching the dog and the cat for my mom), but it gave me a lot of time to reflect on my life these days … which is something I haven’t had a whole lot of time to do as of late.
I did hang out with this kitty though:
Now, for the last few weeks I’ve mostly felt like this:
After doing a lot of thinking today, I’ve realized that I need to make some big life changes (some of which I can’t talk about at this exact moment but soon enough, I promise), and that I need to start a workout routine. Granted, I DO exercise. I walk (swiftly & with purpose!! haha…and mostly uphill) everyday, at LEAST 4.5-5 miles)…but I want to start a designated routine, separate from my daily routine of walking to and from class.
Angela, at Oh She Glows, has really been an inspiration. Today she left a vlog talking about her running, and getting back into it after her half-marathon, and about running outdoors in the winter. One thing she mentions is the endorphin addiction. I think I’m in desperate need of that. haha It will just be a matter of getting my body back into running — it’s been a LONG, LONG time (let’s say since I was on the cross-country team in 7th grade…yikes).
Now, I mean obviously, I’m not a person who is perpetually down in the dumps — a “debbie-downer” shall we say? But I know how I work, and with winter coming and the days getting longer, colder…and darker — I think endorphins are my key. I would honestly love to run outside, even in the winter (Any of you Bostonians do this…or anyone who lives anywhere with really cold winters, too??) because…putting it mildly…the treadmill and I are not friends.
I’ll keep you posted!
Food this evening hasn’t been the healthiest in the world — but considering I’m working out of my mother’s fridge and not my own…it’s not too horrible.
I made a frozen pizza and had a couple (small) pieces. It’s a white pizza with mushrooms and spinach.
I also had a glass of Diet Coke — and I never have soda. haha And yes, I know it’s in a Smuttynose Beer glass…but yep, it’s Diet Coke. haha
Talk to you all again…probably tomorrow night, considering I work ALL day tomorrow. I will keep you posted on any changes happening, too. Enjoy your Saturday nights!!
