I’ve been pretty down for the past two weeks or so. Very busy, not enough time for myself, trying to take care of too many things at once, and overall lost my balance. However, Today my friend shared this with me on facebook: http://www.thegraffitirun.com/locations/philidelphia-pa-july-18-2013/
Graffiti Run in Philly! I’m am beyond excited to run my first 5K, and do it colorfully! (I signed up too late to do the Color Run, but this is even better because there’s a code for half off!)j
We’re called the Cool Coral Cats.
July 28th here I come! And now I have more reasons to run and sorta train for it.
After a very busy work and shool work week last week, and a busy Saturday with graduations and grad dinners, and Mother’s Day which included a large brunch, that was delicious and I ate far too much and cleaning out my closet and room and boxing up memories and stress eating (for the first time in so very long, and felt bad about it).
Finally, yesterday was the first Monday in several weeks where I had a complete me-day again and did school work and such. I took a rest day, I needed it. Did school work, and caught up on some shows.
Today, I had a delicious bowl of banana blueberry peanut butter oatmeal with coffee and the latest ep of Doctor Who, did more homework, then went to the gym for the first time in a week. Did a 10 minute light walk/jog on treadmill to warm up, then did the 30 minute circuit, some ab machines, and ran into my friend on the way out so I walked on the treadmill next to her as we chatted.
Getting ready for class. Maybe hanging out with friends afterwards, or maybe doing more school work.
But I’m feeling more myself than I have in a while. Last week was tough- my regular routine was all over the place and stress was causing a noticeable shift in my body and I felt gross and slept poorly. But, hoping to make this week better.
Free Hot yoga tomorrow morning with the (handsome) wavy haired teacher named Michael. Now that’s a reason to look forward to tomorrow- aside from breakfast of course.
Enjoyed breakfast, a bike ride in the nice fresh air, class debate on smallpox went well, bought a homeless man and his dog a sandwich on the way to class, came home at a decent time, enjoyed roasted asparagus, roasted sweet potatoes, grilled chicken, and multigrain rice for dinner. Ended the evening with hot yoga.
I feel great.
Mixed berry overnight oats in the fridge for tomorrow before work.
Have a good night everyone!
