I’m sleeping much better since my husband got back last week, but Thinking Out Loud is still hard because I still have to get up early — sometimes for Chester, sometimes for me. The next couple of weeks are sure to be busy & tiring: getting ready for Thanksgiving on top of the normal chaos.
Good thing I’m not training for anything (or maybe bad, if you read on).
Humbled by your response . . .
. . . to yesterday’s post. Very unexpected and I appreciate it. I knew the point I wanted to get across, but as so often happens, I really struggled with it and didn’t feel like I did a great job, but I guess I did better than I thought I did.
Rain makes me inactive
My steps yesterday really sucked. Somewhere around 4-5k. Normally I’m walking the dogs a couple of times a day in addition to whatever other exercise I do, but they don’t like to walk when it’s wet and it never dried out the way they said it would yesterday so there were no walks.
But I felt plenty tired, because I: did yoga, did barre, made some veggie curry for lunch, baked some pumpkin soda buns, worked some more on the pantry and closet in our laundry room, washed the sheets and changed the bed, and did some other laundry too.
I guess I needed that little “break”.
Winter off season & packing on the pounds
Am I the only one that sees the irony in having my off season be during late fall/winter, so I decrease my running right about the time all I want to do is eat carbs & sugar?
Step out of your comfort zone
As I mentioned in Tuesday’s post, I decided, on the fly, to take photos at my 15k on Sunday. I’m glad that I did, and while I don’t know if my time suffered (it was my first 15k), I do know that my “time” (aka, my enjoyment of the race) didn’t suffer — in fact, I’m pretty sure that it enhanced the race.
As we age (and no one really remains ageless), we tend to get so hung up on our routine; it’s good to try something new once in a while.
Try it — you might like it.
I’m great at picking out recipes
Not always so great at actually making them! I had such a nice healthy menu planned yesterday. If I wasn’t weighing in today (I weigh in once a week at Weight Watchers), I would have totally made a frozen dinner for lunch or dinner.
And speaking of recipes
I better get cracking on some of the recipes I plan to make for Thanksgiving! Because it’s just 2 weeks away.
Where are you with preparing for Thanksgiving if you’re in the US?
