Thinking Out Loud Thursday {6/04}

I should admit that I don’t really understand what this title means, but I’ve seen other’s use it with randomness, so I thought I could give it a try.  Overall, this week is going really well!  We’ve survived hump day, the sun is shining, and there’s only one more sleep until the weekend!  Hooray Us!!!

Yesterday was National Run Day!

I didn’t run Wednesday, but I did get in a good 5 miler Tuesday morning. If I were more tech savvy, I would add in all of the reasons that I run.

I RUN BECAUSE…

I can’t afford therapy

I love red wine

It’s my quiet time

I miss nature during my day job

I crave the HIGH’s

It’s where I do my best thinking

I rise to the challenge

It makes me feel strong

I never regret it

I burn off stress

I can!!!

Why do you run???

 

Cooper is sick

He has had a few asthma attacks over the weekend, which has been hard to see.  Afterwards, he usually ‘looses his meow’ and just sounds so pitiful.  This week, we started him on a medicine to help, and I am hoping that will get him through this challenging spring.  Even with the asthma, he still gets into everything…case and point…his new hiding location in our cup cabinet!

GREENS

I’ve been attacking my June goals and adding in the greens…spinach in my eggs, a veggie heavy curry, and zoodles galore!  My trainer encouraged me to cut back my dark chocolate habit to every other night. Ugh! I’ve been trying to squash the cravings with cake batter tea, but really nothing beats dark chocolate : )

I really wanted to buy these at Target!

Yoga

I will just try to keep this stream of thought concise but basically…while I was teaching the spring Saturday yoga class, I was able to change my work schedule. Two mornings a week, I went to the 6am yoga class, which I LOVED.  I was doing yoga at least 3xweek, my body felt strong, and my mind clear.  Fast forward a month into my regular schedule, and I really miss morning yoga.  I considered trying to completely revamp my schedule, but that was a bust.  It occurred to me as I was walking out of Sunday’s yoga class that although I have never had a successful home practice, I might be able to use some of the podcasts I downloaded to do morning yoga on my own.  And…now that the weather is so beautiful in the mornings, perhaps I could even set up my mat in the backyard.  Which is exactly what I did after my walk with the BOY today before work!  And I’m hoping to do it again soon!

Weekender

Tomorrow, I am going downtown to hang out and drink wine with my sister in law…Hooray!  And then I may be back down in the city on Sunday and Monday!?  So fun!  Like I said…only one more sleep until the weekend!

 

What’s on your mind today?
