Thank you to everyone who sent me support in my last few posts. It means a lot to me. The past few days have been alright. My son is home from college, and this is both good and nerve-wracking for me. At least his mood has improved since Thanksgiving, when I was about ready to slug him for his bad attitude.
This weekend, my husband and I went went my son and my husband’s cousin to see Thor 2. It wasn’t even my brilliant idea. I just went along for the ride 😉
I’ve logged some good workouts, and the endorphins have done much to keep me less Scrooge-like. On Saturday, I did a moderately hard yoga class followed by an 8 mile treadmill run, then Sunday did an easier yoga class followed by a 10 mile progression run. Today’s workout was a tough interval run, which I managed to nail. I’m quite pleased with myself. It was 8 miles, with 6 speed intervals. By the time I got to that last speed mile, I was pretty cooked, but I did it.
I had an interesting discussion with my personal trainer about the messages out there on what is considered beautiful and how unattainable most of them are. Even the Victoria’s Secret models, who many would argue are what all women should strive to look like, don’t actually look like that most of the time. They diet and drink nothing but liquids leading up to the shows. Not sustainable or healthy. I guess I give myself a “bye” on looking too much like them since I’m 5’1″ and their legs are longer than me standing on tiptoe.
Totally random, but being craft-challenged myself, is there anyone out there who can crochet me this? I’ll be forever indebted.
Christmas is nearly here, and I can’t wait for it to be over. I’m not making any resolutions for the new year because I never do. I’ve got goals that I’m already actively working on. Why wait until the turning of a calendar page to get going?
