Love/Don't Love

1. Even though I worked on Saturday, I still feel like I finally had a weekend...for the first time in ages. Love.
2. After my "I'm in a Slump" post, I feel like I'm getting my life back in order. My apartment is on its way to being clean, Christmas presents are all shopped for (just one DIY gift and I'm all set) and I've finally started working out again. Love.
3. I started Physical Therapy for my knee this morning and my back is killing me. I have no idea if it was last night's hot yoga with Megan or the PT exercises, but I'm super sore. Don't Love.
4. Yes, I went to yoga last night. Sunday, I did the elliptical for 30 minutes. After not being physically active for 3 weeks, I was getting antsy, so I'm committing to at least 30 minutes of exercise between now and the end of the year. Love.

On that note, does PT count? Do I still have to work out today? I'm tired.

5. Sunday night, I went to bed and didn't fall asleep until around 5am. Last night, I went to bed at 10 and woke up again at 2am and didn't fall asleep until about 15 minutes before my alarm went off. I'm exhausted. Don't Love.
6. Saturday night, I was planning to stay in and veg out in sweatpants. Megan texted and invited me over to share a bottle of wine. We watched The Parent Trap (Lindsay Lohan's version) and drank the wine. Then, I went to my apartment and made banana bread...which rose and spilled out onto my oven leaving my apartment with that terrible something-burned-at-the-bottom-of-the-oven-smell that is awful. Love/Don't Love.

7. This morning, I finished Shanghai Girls, the book I posted about last week, and it was just as good at the end as it was when I wrote about it last week. I highly recommend this book. It was sad, but in the way that demonstrates pure and utter resilience. I love those kinds of stories. Love.
8. I'm hoping to start working on a 2014 Goals post this week...despite the fact that my 2013 Goals didn't go so well, but in racing news (haven't talked about that in awhile!), I got into the lotteries for both the Nike Women's Half Marathon and the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler, both here in DC, both next April. Love.

This basically means I can start talking about running again.
I mean, this is a running blog after all!

9. There was a small fire in my apartment building last week. Everything was fine but Peyton was terrified. Since we had to go outside in the cold in the middle of the night, she was super cold when we got back in, so she slept with a blanket that night and it was adorable. Love.

*Note: She does not wear a sweater or a coat when she goes outside. The Pilot tried to get her to wear one and she ate it. I get really angry when people tell me that I'm cruel for not putting a sweater on her when she goes outside.

So that's what's going on over here!
1 week till Christmas!

  1. Totally just catching up on blogs, but I had to comment and say that we never put anything on Slider when we take him out. He would eat it too :-P
