Went out to meet my old co-workers & friends for brunch this morning. It was a fun time, though (1) depressing that I had to say that there've been no improvements on the job front, (2) seeing the pics!!
I am excited that I am close to running a 5K (not walking it!!) but I have to get the food in control to see weight changes :) I'll try not to get depressed today and instead feel good that I saw my friends and socialized.
My boyfriend & I are going to take our dog to the dog beach, so maybe a little sun and activity will help turn my mood :)

I'm a big fan of the Zombies, Run! application and I'm starting with the 5K Training program. It's been very helpful for me (4 weeks in!)... I'm goal-oriented and the fact that there's something different happening each time, characters, storyline etc... it makes the time fly by and I'm eager for the next workout. It's not too distracting, or too mellow... I think it's a good mix.
I've been so enamored that I bought a "Runner 5" t-shirt online :) I'll be sporting that to the gym for motivation (and for anyone else who gets the reference).
I am excited to run outdoors next month (it's been treadmill running thus far).
P.S. Today I had strawberries & whipped cream for a snack and it was perfectly refreshing!
Unfortunately I just had two white chocolate macadamia nut cookies just now... but the rest of the day was decent. Oh well, tomorrow's a new day.

Today my dad was much more supportive and happy for me & my boyfriend for buying a new house :) It's an exciting big step and it's nice that he put aside the whole "engagement/ marriage" conversation and just focused on the great find. My mom & sister were happy too!
Unfortunately I had a whole new set of issues with my brother - turns out he's feeling a little "out of the loop" since he hasn't even met the boyfriend yet (we've been together for over 2yrs) and we're taking big steps and talking about marriage etc...
I see his point, but I don't like the way he goes about things.... all in all, it's been a weird "down" few weeks... despite the excitement of finding a new place.
Family is so much drama, and adding in-laws to the mix... it just seems that no matter how much you try, you're always rubbing SOMEONE the wrong way. It's just tiring. No wonder people become secluded when they get married... it's just easier to deal with your own drama than worrying about everyone else's!!
Anyway... that's what I've been dealing with....
On the food/ exercise front... I've been doing great with exercise... it's been a month of 3x/ week running on the treadmill and I'm progressing along nicely!!! I'm running for much longer distances and I know I'll be running that 5K next month with no issues :)
Food wise I haven't done much to eat healthy lately... but yesterday I got tired of crappy food and had salmon & salad for dinner. I DID feel better, so I hope this is a trend with me :)

I had to skip 2 out of 3 of last week's workouts because I was so sick... so I was NOT in the mood to go workout today... but I was curious about the next workout on my Zombie App, plus I figured I was bored and not motivated, so the workout WOULD motivate me and improve my mood! And it did :) :)
I made a delicious Sheppard's Pie for dinner and am quite proud of myself all around. It's been a good day.
