I have been meaning to post about my plans and goals for February since, oh, February 1st, so I am finally here and ready to do so!
Methinks this will be a rambling post, let me forewarn you all.
So, I never really got back into running after my break. I want to - my motivation and mojo are there - but there is something missing. When I have time, I don't have energy. Things have just been so busy (and it isn't like I am not treating myself well otherwise - I am still exercising (mostly walking), and eating healthfully for the most part - and darn, I even lost weight!) and I am feeling abit overwhelmed, so when I do get home I just want to hibernate in my room while watching, oh, let's say, Season 3 of The Wire OR Season 3 of Big Love.
And I have done just that for the past two nights.
Am I being hard on myself? I was moving stuff - my stuff, josh's stuff, my new roommates' stuff - on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Maybe it is a bit much to think I should be jumping out of my socks full of energy today.
Anyway, what does this translate into for February?
I would like to get back to running over these next 3 weeks before I head out to Bali for the following 3 weeks. Nothing too fast or too furious - I just want to run for the sake of running, to enjoy it, to be outside, to hear the snow crunch under my feet.
Yes, oh my goodness, I can't believe I'm leaving for Bali 3 weeks from today! That is something else I need to do this month - make a plan for staying healthy while I am out of the country and share that with you all. There are a couple of things I definitely won't be missing while I am gone, but I will miss you all!
Ah, what else in February? Keep up the strength training. I am counting my moving as strength training this week, but then the following two weeks I want to get in at least 2 sessions per week.
Let's see, other news... Josh changed his mind and wants to take 2 of the cats to live with him. It's his right - we adopted them together - but my heart is breaking a bit. I also feel kind of upset because I had at one point offered to plan this with him but he did not want to take any of our babies at the time - so I had been adjusting these past few months to the reality that I would be the crazy cat lady with 4 cats. So it surprised me as well. I would cry if I wasn't so tired... or at work...
Anyway... anyway anyway anyway. I'll be okay, it's just life after all!
