I’m starting to get there! Still going to the gym three times a week with Kaila, and starting to see results.
This was my run from last night:
I’m up to 2.47 miles, and to reach 5 kilometres, I’ll need to hit 3.11 total. Just a little bit further and I’ll be in line with my goal. I’m planning to run outside when the weather start to cooperate, and that will help my body get used to running on concrete. It’s definitely different than running on the treadmill (read: way harder on concrete).
The last few weeks, as I’ve mentioned a few times, have been difficult. Personally, I’ve been stuck in a negative headspace for awhile, coming up for air for a few days then sinking back down for a few more. Thomas has had his own share of stressors, too. But, we’ve remained strong and together. Stronger together, probably.
We had a lovely date night on Saturday, drinking wine and watching a couple movies. There was a brief interruption when we realized one of the cats (presumably) stepped in the shit of the other, and refused to clean it. We locked the smelly one in the laundry room/cat box room in the hopes that he’d clean his nasty foot, but he just sat patiently and waited to come out.
Eventually we tag-teamed bathing the cat, and hilarity ensued. No one was brutally maimed, and the cat’s lower half was hilariously shrunken and soaked the rest of the night. THEN he made it a point to clean and lick himself all over. TOO LATE, CAT. Don’t worry, he made up for it by drying himself off on my side of the bed after we released him, and were laughing too hard to towel him off properly.
This weekend I intend to go shopping and buy a metric tonne of clothes. I went spring cleaning through my closet and realized that I still have items from high school (graduated 7 years ago, for those wondering). So, it’s safe to say I get some mileage out of my clothes. I don’t see the harm in investing in some new ones. I’m thinking new lululemon sweater, sports bra and pants, plus a plethora of goodies from Old Navy and American Eagle to take with me to Mexico. (Which is only TWO WEEKS AWAY!)
Another run/strength workout tonight (gotta build those knees up), a tattoo consult tomorrow (to finish off my RHCP wrist piece) and then BAM it’s the weekend! What’s everyone else up to?
