Thinking … about my how I am going to keep moving forward with my health and fitness goals. Since I am taking a short break from long distance races, I have thinking of ways to stay motivated like starting a new strength training program or challenging myself to running a certain number of miles in a month.
Feeling … completely exhausted. I know I mentioned this on Friday but I am not a huge fan of living out of a suitcase. Plus, I have been waking up way earlier than I am used to for my training class. I can’t wait to sleep in tomorrow!
Watching … Diners, Drive Ins and Dives on the Food Network. Every time I watch this show, I get a strong desire to go on a road trip. The food always looks amazing and the restaurants are always full of character. Pete and I have a running list of the places we want to eat at if we ever get a chance. Fun fact: A local restaurant that my family used to eat at all the time was featured on the show.
Reading … absolutely nothing! February completely got away from me and I didn’t pick up a single book on my pile of books to read. I did just get a new book in the mail that I am really excited to read. Hopefully, this book will help me get out of reading funk.
Excited … about starting a new workout program with Pete. Yes, you really did just read that. A few years ago, I heard about Jamie Eason’s LiveFit Trainer program and considered trying it out but never did. When I was looking for a new strength training program a few weeks ago, I stumbled across it again and decided to finally give it a try. Oddly enough, Pete liked the structure of the program and offered to do it with me! We have never tried to workout together so this should be an interesting experience.
Wondering … if I will ever finish writing my race recaps. Seriously! I haven’t had enough time to sit down and write up the recaps for the last three race weekends I participated in. Oh and you can add the half marathon I ran on Saturday morning to the list of recaps I need to write. I am going to do my best to finish all of them up by the end of this month.
Working … on finishing up my race scrapbooks. At the end of last year, I started working on a race scrapbook for every year since 2011. I first saw the idea on Meghann‘s blog a while ago and decided that I really needed to do it. I can’t wait to see how the
Stressed … about having to teach other people at the office how to use the new software program. I have spent last week in training to learn the new design software. Unfortunately, I now have to go back to work and show others how to do it. I learned so much in the last week and I am afraid that I won’t do a very good job of sharing the information. Hopefully, I will get some more time to work with the program before I have to show others how to use it.
Proud … of my baby sister. Despite everything, she finished her very first half marathon two weekends ago. I knew that she could do it but watching her cross the finish line was one of the most amazing things I have seen in a while. (If you are looking for another amazing story from last weekend’s runDisney Princess Half Marathon weekend, read this absolutely beautiful story … with a box of tissues.)
Wanting … to get my hair cut. Don’t get me wrong. I love my long hair BUT it is desperate need of a trim. I think the last time it was cut was in August before we went to California. I am WAY past over due. Maybe I will make an appointment for next weekend.
Wishing … I didn’t have such a black thumb when it comes to gardening. I would love to have a vegetable and herb garden so that I could have super fresh veggies to eat. Unfortunately every time I attempt to grow something, it dies a very painful death. My black thumb is so bad that Pete won’t even let me go into the garden section of the home improvement store.
Eating … healthy foods. Again. Ha! It isn’t that I stopped eating healthy foods but when traveling I have a tendency to let myself go a little bit. Thankfully, Pete makes me a delicious salad for lunch everyday.
Drinking … copious amounts of water and coffee … still! Oh and I am also enjoying some tropical hibiscus tea from Panera. It is absolutely delicious.
Loving … nothing in particular. I am happy with where my life is at the moment. I am learning to love body every single day, which is a huge improvement over the last two years.
What are you currently thinking, feeling, loving, wishing, …?
