I had planned on taking a break from blogging, but decided since I love to write I would still dabble in my blogging when time permits.
I had a busy week, full of 10+hour work days, and had to work my second job on Saturday. I won’t lie and say I am not envious of the people out there that have the mere obligation of deciding who to run with, and on what day. I wish I had the flexibility in my schedule that others do…but then I kick myself for wishing for what others have instead of being satisfied with what I have done and what I do…bah on jealousy, it sucks.
So I went to work on Saturday where I teach at a local community college. I went in with a good attitude, and ready to teach AND learn. What an awesome group of students I have. They are full of questions, and I learn so much from them…most of them are in their 20’s, and it’s so cool to see them plan their lives and careers.
After work I tried to take a nap because I knew we were going out Saturday night. Let’s face it…I’m not in my 20’s anymore, and can’t hang like I used to be able to…but a nap just wasn’t in the cards as I tossed and turned knowing I had so many chores to accomplish. So I got up, took a shower, and was blessed to have a quick dinner at Red Robin with my family. I have been trying to eat better, so I had the grilled chicken burger, without a bun. It was delish!
The hubs and I went out to see our friends play at a local bar. WHAT FUN!!! Just what we needed, although we found ourselves fading fast by midnight. Just call me Cinderella, LOL!
Today we went to church, breakfast, and ran errands. I again tried to take a nap with no luck, so went for a quick 5K run by myself. The trails were icy, so I didn’t get my long run in, but managed a few miles at least. Our family wrapped up the night with dinner. We had a roast, and broccoli served two ways! YUM!
|I attempted this…went down the hill about a half a mile, and decided to be smart and turn around after nearly eating trail a few times.
I did realize that after a while I was a complete grump, and my first day of NO carbs wasn’t an easy one. I will NOT do this forever, but for 2 weeks I am trying to cleanse and start over fresh.
I admittedly miss my military days when I got Presidents day of…but prepping for work tomorrow reminds me that at least I have a job. I CAN do this. Yes, I do have a craptastic ton of laundry…but one load is done. LOL
I was blessed to be contacted to be a “Fort2base” run ambassador by my new friend, “Kelly the Culinarian” and was completely taken aback. I’ve never had such an opportunity so I am weighing my options, time, and ability to do a good job with this endeavor. I know once summer comes I will have more time, so I am leaning towards doing it!
With that, I bid you all a good night. I hope your week is full of adventure, fun, and faith in life!
