Ok, so I’m feeling much better! Nothing that an overabundance of coffee and H20 can’t cure… Hopefully today I’ll need a little less of the “hard stuff” to get to hyped cheerleader perky levels. Ok, maybe a few notches lower. Let’s not overdo it.
Since my mood was “iffy” at best, I decided it was the best for everyone around me that I take a quiet lunch on my own with my current new read.It’s a book I picked up at the library last week before my trip. I was concerned I’d finish “Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.” before the weekend was over, so I snagged a few backups- which included “I Was Told There’d Be Cake” by Sloane Crosley. I did finish Chelsea’s book (and I love you that much more Chelsea Handler!) but didn’t get to start this new one until today.
So far I love it. Her first chapter is dedicated to her weird collection of plastic toy ponies. Quirky. Yet fantastic. Just like me. And what else is fantastic? That salad. Yep. I’ll throw that word out there. Cauliflower made a guest appearance today thanks to a sale at my friendly neighborhood grocery store. Thanks Jewel Osco! Leftover turkey from Easter also got thrown in. My mom was disappointed I didn’t load up on candy, so what I lacked in sugar, I made up for in protein. It’s Thursday and I’m still trying to get through it all! I don’t usually stick turkey in salad, but whatevs. It worked.
Yoga went fabulously. Is it sad that I’m a half-step in front of the girl on the video? I should probably switch it up, but I’m nervous I’ll end up not liking the next one… I wish there was a “Fitness Fusion Level 2″ or something like that. Because I really enjoy that it’s not the traditional yoga. I’ve heard good things about Jillian Michael’s yoga dvds. Maybe it’ll be something to try?
Jess over at Process of Healing is so lovely and handed me the Stiletto award the other day! I just wanted to give her a little shout out and say thank you! I know I’m supposed to tag a certain number of people, but I really suck at this so I’m just going to highlight a couple peeps:
Ten.Eight.Six.Four because she is working her butt off for the race she just did and ones to come!
Simply Shaka because she’s my “go to” for fun posts of life and pop culture and the two combined…
It’s a Great Day to Be Alive! because she’s a fun read everyday!
Low… and Behold! because I’m often a huge fan of the random musings she likes to bring up…
So those are some girlies to check out if you haven’t already. Now back to business…
I’m skeptical about the planned run today. The weather doesn’t look like it’s going to be on my side. I’m bringing the workout clothes to change into right after work, but I’m pretty sure rain is in the forecast all day. Last night Annie and I talked about the race. I told her I’m 90% doing it. We also discussed other important things such as leave time, what to bring, and of course where we’re going to eat afterwards… I’m looking into that one. Any Lincoln Park breakfast/brunch spots I’ve just got to try? I’ve been to a few in that area because that’s where a lot of my runs happened last year. But I’m open to suggestions!
Annoyance of the day? This zit that popped up to say hello for the weekend. What the hell? Get off my FACE!!! Honestly now- I have bangs. Why can’t you hide out under there? I don’t understand. Grr… Was I the only one who thought when you got older, zits would stop happening? And I have some issues with whoever told me that… Not cool!
