Running and Gratitude

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Great run this morning thanks to 70 degree weather! Today was the "long" run, I did 2 miles and feel terrific. I can't imagine how there was ever a world where I didn't like running.

I'm still working on my Pilates roll up. I'm not sure what the best way is to make progress on that. I don't feel like I'm improving, but regardless I will keep at it every day.

So for day 2 of the happiness experiment/gratitude journaling:
1. Grateful for cooler than normal weather! Makes my runs and workouts so much more enjoyable.
2. Grateful for my Keurig. I love coffee so very much, and this thing makes wonderful coffee!
3. Grateful for my job. I love my job and I love being able to do it from home.

Positive experience over last 24 hours:
I went out to the backyard with the kids and jumped on the trampoline with them. The old me wouldn't do that because I didn't like climbing on or getting off of the trampoline. I didn't have the strength or stability to do it easily and I was afraid of hurting myself. The old me was also way too lazy to do that. The new me had no trouble getting up there, and I had a ball laughing with my kids who were thrilled that I was jumping with them even though my almost 13-year old daughter claimed to be embarrassed.

Exercise done (walking and trampoline time!)

Meditation done! RAK done!
