Plenty of exercise today.

Saturday, September 24, 2011

I ran this morning, and went to hoop class this afternoon. I'm really kind of proud of myself, because it would have been too darn easy to not do one of those things. I got up half an hour later than I planned this morning, and wasn't sure I'd have time to run, because I had a massage scheduled (giving, not getting) but I made myself go out and run for about 40 minutes. Then my massage took longer than I'd planned. I really should know better than to assume an hour massage is only going to take an hour, especially when it's a new client, and someone that's athletic. They ALWAYS take more work. Anyway, by the time I got home, it was a little after 1:00, I hadn't had lunch yet, and I was STARVING. It would have been easy to skip hoop class, but I hadn't touched my hoop since Monday night, and guilt made me go. YAY guilt!

Now, I'm getting ready to go out for a little bit with a friend of mine, which I NEVER get to do on Saturday nights, so I'm kind of excited. :)

    Glad you got your run and went to Hoop class. Work does tend to get in the way of our life sometimes, doesn't it!!! Hope you and your friend had a good time!

When my body decides it needs a rest, it just comes to a screeching halt. I ran Wednesday, I ended the day with doing a whole lot of chair massage, which imo, is harder than doing regular one hour massages on the table. By the time I got home, I was really tired, and as the night wore on, i went from tired to sick. Yesterday the screeching halt happened. I was nauseated, headachy, just completely miserable and I don't think I accomplished anything. Guess I needed the rest.

I'm better today, managed to at least go for a nice brisk walk, but I'm glad I didn't have to work, still not 100% though I'm a lot better. Hoping for completely better tomorrow. I'd like to run, I have to work and then hoop class in the afternoon!

I ran!

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

I ran very slowly, but it still counts, right?

I've been running again for several weeks now, but it's been reeeeally slow, and for very short bursts before I went back to a walk. My partner has gone with me, and I'm pretty sure now that he's been WAY too nice to me (don't anyone tell him that though!)

Today, I went by myself, just me and my ipod, and pushed myself harder than I have in ages...years...literally. I ended up taking 2 full minutes off my best time so far. I think that's pretty darn good.

I think I hate running, but I do like the feeling of accomplishment I get when I'm done.

    Of course, it counts. You are moving. That counts. Way to go on your new running time. That is a great feeling when you are done working out. It pushes us to do it again:)

    Glad that you are getting back into running. I can't because of my knees and back. But I love to walk.

I bought...

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

...myself something tonight!

I hadn't planned to, but I popped into Penney's tonight, just to pay my bill, and as soon as I walked into the store I saw this dress. It was so pretty, and sort of...curve hugging. I told myself it probably wouldn't look good on me, and I really didn't need to spend the money on it....and a million other things that were supposed to talk me out of it. After I paid my bill, I went back and looked at it again. I knew that if I didn't at least try it on, I'd think about it for days, so I figured I'd try it on and it'd look awful, and that'd be that.
So I tried it on....and it looked pretty darn good! It's even a smaller size than I thought I'd need. Oh..and it was on sale too! How could I NOT buy it? I can't wait to wear it!

I also bought a jacket to wear running when it gets a little colder out, which I really needed and was also on sale, so it was a pretty good night.

I can't wait to wear my curvy, kind of sexy, new dress! :)

    Enjoy your dress. It will make you feel good. That's great that it is a smaller size.

Feeling discouraged. Work WAY too slow for my liking. Really need to pick up some new clients. Back sore...even hoopdance class sucked. Just didn't have it. Blah.

Blah. Blah. Blah.
