Whoa – this week has been intense! So glad it’s Friday!
I have not accomplished anymore organization yet, but I think this weekend I’ll tackle a couple more things. Your votes were mostly split between organizing the hall closet
and the bookshelf
I realized that when I do one, I’ll probably need to do the other because a lot of the bookshelf items need to go into the closet. So hopefully I can tackle that soon.
Meanwhile, I managed to get in a little guitar playing last night
Tuned her up and played for about an hour or so. I was really just having fun, but soon I need to start practicing on more challenging stuff. I learned guitar when I was 18 by taking a class, so I have “classroom” knowledge rather than “real-life” skills, and I’ve never really progressed from there. Basically, I’ve got the chords down, no prob, but I SUPER SUCK at strumming/picking, so I’m mostly just beating the strings without any of the melodic strumming sounds that guitarists use to make the song sound “finished”. I want to get better at that.
I also took the time to paint my nails, thank you very much!
and the hubbs made dinner! It was good, but he decided to go with burgers (again – we had them like 2 nights ago!), so even though I liked it, I was kinda craving something different.
Here’s the assembly of my burger:
patty & cheese
hefty serving of freshly-made guacamole (my only contribution to dinner)
served with a side of corn and homemade fries.
Then, a little after dinner I heeded Christin’s advice for a little snacky
Barney Butter on top of a Clif bar (chocolate chip flavored bar)
it was YUM
yoga mats out so I could do some sit ups and push ups earlier.
I seriously will never have a regular smoothie again (unless maybe if I’m out of spinach). It tastes EXACTLY the same & has so many additional benefits (tons of antioxidants + some protein)!
Lunch was at my desk and was kind of random
bowl of soup, 1/2 pita, hummus, carrot sticks & a wedge of laughing cow cheese.
Chris is working early tomorrow morning so we aren’t going out tonight. I’m looking forward to hopefully taking a long, relaxing bubble bath and reading a magazine. I’m way behind on my “pleasure” reading! I have a stack of mags that are just collecting dust, having never been read!
I’m so excited! Tomorrow is my last “long” run until the half marathon! And it’s only 7 miles, so it’s not even really that long. I have to say – I love long runs since they’re a time when I can just listen to music, think about life, and just be by myself for awhile……but that being said, they’re also time-consuming and require a lot of life adjustments (e.g., can’t drink the night before a long run, can’t stay up late if waking up really early, etc. etc. etc.) I Can.Not.WAIT until this race!
Have you done any races? What was your first?
My first was a 5K last September with Chris. It was the first (and only) race that Chris has run with me!
