Better today.

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Emotionally I'm a lot better today. Running at 80%.

I was holding onto the hope that we would eventually get back together and got depressed when I realized it wasn't going to happen. I am going spend the next couple months concentrating on me getting healthy, exercising consistently, finished decluttering my house and finishing school.
I found out last week that this is my last class, my last semester! how awesome is that?!
I already have an Associates degree in computer programming & business administration and management. In December I will finish my bachelors in general studies with a minor in sustainability.

Then I will explore my options for possibly a new career path and be open for a new relationship.

Another chance to be a better me

Monday, September 24, 2012

So I have been down and depressed for the last three days. same thing happened a week ago.
And no one to blame but myself.
You think you're fine, doing great, going on with your life and you are!

Then you talk to that special someone. Or I should say once special someone.
Texting is good (or bad depending on how you look at it) you-can't hear their voice.

I've been broke up with Scott for several years now. But we remained friends and kept in contact. I haven't dated anybody else. The several times that we've gotten together has been fun. And I was fine with it because I'm busy with a lot of things in my life.
So I asked him to come over and help me with my water softener because he helped me get it.
(it's really cool no electricity just cleans itself after so many gallons are used) and with me just living here it's not so much. but something is leaking down my basement and I wanted him just to check it out. I can't figure out if it's my water softener, my water heater, or my furnace because they're all next to each other. I had issues with my furnace I should just break down call the furnace guy. I just hate spending money on it if that's not the problem.
I want to get it taken care of because I think that's part of the problem I have been sick. Is the dampness and mold in my basement.

I know part of the reason is he's got his own stuff he's dealing with. His ex-wife's his twin girls work and he's been off work since July (because he had to have surgery on his arm) So I shouldn't take everything so personally. add to that he lives about 70 minutes away it doesn't get Close to my town unless he is working.

so he was not enthusiastic about coming to see me. Understandable on his part. I shouldn't of taken it so personally but I did. And then it brought all the other emotions out. Ones I thought I had dealt with.

Well it's past bedtime so I need to go. Tomorrow is another day. Another chance to get myself together and be a better me.

    I know how this is. I kept thinking about Paul after he broke up with me and we would still do things together but then.....he sent me a text saying he was hearing our song and the next day stopped by and talked for a few. So I had a drink that night and then another....then I text him saying we should talk. The next day he told all of his co--workers that I blew up his phone and I was crazy.....they told me when I stopped into see a friend of mine that works there also. I cried a bit then packed up the rest of his stuff and brought it to his house. I told him that if he wanted to say something about me to say it to my face and that he needed to lose my number and leave me alone. I was finally over him.
Sorry....I just unloaded on you...thanks for listening!

Nike walk #7,8 & 9.

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Maybe should number these or put dates? Any suggestions?
Saturday I took two short walks 1.76 of them out the other .83 of a mile.
Today I walked 1.36 miles. When I got done it congratulated me for walking three days in a row. How cool is that!
Then it reminded me to make sure I stretched after each run.

Found more cool stuff I can choose from a basic run, distance run, time run or speed run.

I looked around the speed run . It said select a speed record from: have three records listed a fastest 1K ,fastest mile and a fastest 5K.
I thought that was cool too.

The only thing that happened today was I was walking around the neighborhood and I tripped on bump on the sidewalk and I fell. really did a number on my hand ,scraped my knees and my chin.
Most time I've been trying to walk on the side streets that are busy so I could walk in the street because they're smoother. I need to really pay attention to where I'm walking more or go somewhere where I know it's new and level.
I have enjoyed walking around my neighborhood seeing all the lawns up close and saying hello to the neighbors.


Love the Nike+ App!

Saturday, September 15, 2012

I am going to write Nike and tell them how much I like their app- and it is free on top of that.

Several weeks ago- I turn it on and it asked something to the extent of: "want to beat your longest run?' ( I mostly walk though)

Early this week it congratulated me on my personal best so far!
Today it congratulated me on getting more minutes in this week than last week. Then a voice came on and said " Hi! I am XXXXXXX and I would even let you hold my Heisman trophy for a minute."
This stuff Just makes it fun! And pushes you at the same time.
Today I had to walk over to the wellness center at work. I did .76 mile in 15 minuets. If I would have kept going it would have been my best time for a mile yet. 20 minutes and seconds. And I didn't even sweat. (really couldn't do that because I was in my work clothes and I had to go back to work after).
Now- I want to do a mile and see how fast I can actually do it in. That is on my to-do list for this week.

Yesterday and today were just beautiful! Makes the walking outside even better!

    I have the MapMyRide App. I'll have to look at the Nike + App to see if it is something I want to use. Thanks for the info and good luck with your personal challenges! emoticon

Personal Best- Nike run

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

I wasn't in the mood but I did it anyways and I'm so glad I did.
I walk decided to try to do my 5K race. Put on my ankle and wrist weights and off I went.
On top of that I tried a different route which had a lot more hills.
So I get a little more than A 5K and when I hit end run I got a note that said " congratulations you just made it personal best".

In addition to that I just walked the whole way. I didn't do any jogging because last time I went to my chiropractor he said no jogging because my ankle was out of sorts.

I am satisfied and proud of myself! emoticon
