Almost time for a 3-day weekend!
Friday, November 08, 2013
I feel like I've been looking forward to the weekend all week. And I feel like I say that every week, which kind of makes me feel bad. I dont hate week days - I am just struggling with my focus lately. And I just want to rest and catch up on things at home that I am just too tired to do after work.
Since I skipped my run on Wednesday and really had to get it in yesterday, I left work early to go to the gym and run on the treadmill. Despite the fact that the gym parking lot has been insanely crowded recently, I didnt have to wait for a treadmill so that was nice. I planned to do 2 miles run/walk but I felt so good that I did 3! Woohoo! Then I followed it up with another mile walking on a 5% incline. Total of 52 minutes. Felt great. But I am really looking forward to hopefully running outside tomorrow! After my workout I stretched, went home, reheated my dinner (the last of the steak fajitas) and then I had to head out to dance class. I was so tired by 7pm that it was a struggle to get my butt up and go. But I had missed the past 3 weeks of classes (though I think we didnt actually have class last week because of Halloween). So I really needed to go. I was glad I went once I got there. The other ladies in my class have warmed up to me a lot and are so much friendlier (not that they werent friendly before). We did a lot of technique stuff and I felt like I was doing really well and have improved a lot since the beginning of September :)
I signed on to Facebook this morning and found out my Great Aunt passed away last night. This saddens me. I hadnt seen her in 10 years, but I really liked her. I knew she hadnt been doing well for a while, but I feel really sad that I didnt get to see her one last time before she passed. Isnt it strange how we just assume there will always be time, when there just isnt?
Still trying to work out some weekend plans. I feel like I should plan something fun and exciting to do this weekend, but I cant come up with anything. Same old, same old. Then I feel guilty about it. Whatever that is about. I know Ia m going to do a lot of cooking this weekend - I've got quite a few recipes picked out, including gluten-free/dairy-free pancakes and girl scout cookies. I need to get some sewing done. I need to get some cleaning done. Apparently I either havent done laundry in a while or I'm suddenly wearing 5 different outfits per day because I have a ton of laundry to do - my hampers are overflowing. :/
Is it still too early to decorate for Christmas? How about listen to Christmas music? I downloaded the Pandora radio app on my phone today (yes, I am like 500 years behind on this) and when I logged in to my account I had mostly Christmas stations. So, so tempting. But I havent turned the Christmas music on...yet.
