hi spark world!

i make it a habit of blogging at least once a day, every day, but i've missed two whole days! a lot happened, but it's not worth capturing now, so i'll let it go into history.

right now, i'm sitting on my couch watching the inauguration of our president. i don't think i've ever really watched it. i enjoyed the music and the excitement of the ceremony. it was nice to see the president interact with his family, whom he clearly loves. i'm also sitting here in a knee brace because i went for a 5k run yesterday and my knee is hurting worse now than it did last week. so, that stinks. i guess it's time to take some serious time off and get this thing back to normal. also, 5 kilometers was probably a long stretch for a knee that has only been resting since last sunday. i just miss running quite a bit. it's sad.

anyway, today i'm craving pizza. again. good pizza. i live within a 1.5 hour proximity to new york city, which has the best pizza on earth, and the small town i live in has pizza that could blow your mind. however, pizza is tricky to fit into my plan. i managed to squeeze in two slices on friday, but they weren't very good and they didn't do much for my craving. i think i'm also just very stressed because i have a paper due tomorrow, a class to face, my knee hurts, paul left to go home this morning, and my best friend is acting kind of strange lately. i've got a lot going on and i know that that often drives me to eat. i would like to go for a run and clear my head, but that's not an option, and walking is pretty hard too. i want to ask my grandma to take me to a store so we can just walk around but i know she'll make a fuss over me wanting to spend her money (which, for the record, i don't). so, i'll just sit here in my house alone with my feelings (and no pizza) and think about working on my paper.

at any rate, life is still good. i am really blessed to have a warm house to live in and food to eat. i think of how good i have it when it gets bitter cold outside (like it is now) and i think of those who are homeless. my problems are miniscule compared to what i could have to face. so, i am thankful to be in a place of comfort where my problems do not threaten my well-being.

on that note, sparkers, i conclude. i hope you have a wonderful day and remember to think about the things you are thankful for.

    I'm thankful that about 8 years ago I picked up a set of Leslie Sandsone's Walk Away the Pounds videos--1, 2, and 3 mile walks that you can do in your own home, with or without hand weights.....

    Even though we have a treadmill at home and I generally prefer to run or power walk on that--there are days when WATP just works better. Especially if I have a minor injury or slight cold, but still feel like moving.
