So, I just finished running W5D2 and let me tell you...it was NOT a piece of cake like W5D1 was this week. Ugh. I blame the sun for most of the difficulty, but I still made it the entire way without stopping. :) Two 8-min runs!! Woooohoooo! :D My next run is the dreaded 20-minute run, BUT I've done it before...I can do it again. :) Granted, the first time I did it I was inside on a track, but I'm almost positive that my first 23-min or 25-min run was outside in the sunshine. So bring it on!
I've recently got some new perspective on my life in general (mostly my career and future family plans and such) and I'm really feeling great. I'm just noticing that I'm more like the person I used to be when I was my cheerful, friendly, well...extra extra friendly, go-find-someone-that's-alone-a
nd-be-their-friend self. :) Haha, I think I've just found some HOPE again in where I'm headed. I don't feel stuck in my current situation so much anymore. Honestly, I could change it impulsively anytime (in other words, quit my job...), but I'm too much of a planner, too focused on security, and I know I'd hear it from my mom! ;) (I get it honestly, and I'm glad!) But this transition period (which is soooo difficult to be in when all I want is the next stage!) is so important to set myself up for that next stage. So I'm making the most of it. :) :)
As for nutrition and fitness...the fitness I've got covered with C25K again and a few walks during the week on my lunch breaks. (Lately thought I've been reading a GREAT book during my lunch break...when I'm done I'll let you know all about it!) Nutrition-wise, we're eating our veggies (most of them) from the CSA and TRYING our very best to limit eating out. (Too bad I'm craving some Moe's now....haha! But I won't do it! Gotta eat up my garlic scape pesto on some pastaaaaa!) But it's happened before and it's happening again...so many THINGS in my life are taking my focus away from this nutrition stuff. Haha. I KNOW everything I need to know, it's just a matter of....you know....going grocery shopping. Haha. :) Things will balance out.
Tomorrow is Matt's birthday! I'm taking him out (HA) to dinner at a Moroccan place. Neither of us have been there, but I have a good feeling it's going to be delicious! Plus, we'll be able to walk around town a bit afterward and maybe grab a drink. Yay!
Well, I'm off to go shower and make some dinner! :)
