Wow- Monday again. Blegh.
I'm afraid this will be one of those entries where I just have to complain for a little while.
I fell asleep in my clothes last night, which I hate doing. I always feel like I've been cheated of a full night's rest somehow when that happens. I've been working 7 days a week for almost 6 months now and it's really starting to get to me. I've been feeling very unmotivated lately and I find myself daydreaming of vacations non-stop! I keep imagining I smell sunscreen and I immediately think of spending the day on the beach with a book and some music. I'm also daydreaming of going to the library a lot, just thinking of the summers when I was a kid and I would spend all day in bed reading a book. Man that was heaven! It doesn't help that my weekend job just hired a new manager who's bound and determined to change all the rules and crack down on everybody. Like I need more stress in my life. I need to figure out how I can have a vacation in my mind or schedule a little mindless me-time. But the chores are piling up and life keeps on coming at me and that laundry isn't going to wash itself.
Sigh. I just have to keep reminding myself that in 1 month and 2 weeks I'm going to have a mini-weekend vacation! Camping on the beach with my friends for 3 days! And then just 2 more months to go after that!
Good news is, I finally weighed myself and I broke 147 lbs! I'm now at 146, which may not seem like much but the previous month was a very lazy one for me and I actually gained 2 lbs back! So in the past week of running, I've lost the 2 lbs I had previously gained back and I lost an extra pound to boot! So, I'm going to keep up with the running 4 days a week and hopefully I'll loose another 2-3 lbs! I haven't weighed less than 142 lbs in over 10 years, and I'm so excited about it! I feel like it's so close to happening! Maybe in another 2 weeks if I'm careful. Also, today is the day I run for 20 minutes straight in the C25K program! Ideally that will be 2 miles! More than meeting my goal of running 1 mile straight!
