Blogging into the New Year update

Good afternoon, everyone!  I’m keeping my blogging streak alive.  I barely got it done yesterday, but I’m still blogging strong today.  This whole thing has me really excited and it’s really stretching my thought process for the blog.  There have been some days it’s been hard to come up with something to blog about but I’ve come through in the pinch.  I will only blog every day until the new year.  This is just an exercise is helping me get into the routine of blogging.  I will go back to this when I need to do it.

It’s been a rough week for me because I’m trying to build new routines.  I woke up early every day this week to get my workout done because it just works better for my schedule.  And now that I’m not a running schedule, I still need to structure.  Yesterday, I went to Group Power for the first time in 6 months.  Today, I can’t really move.  I’m suffering from DOMS so bad.

I also must have tweaked my back yesterday because I couldn’t move and it hurt so bad. I couldn’t really lay down and I can’t turn my body.  I really took my life in my own hands today driving because I couldn’t turn to look at my blind spots. Luckily I was reminded that I got a back massager last Christmas that I never used but I broke that sucker out of the box last night.

This morning I didn’t want to work out, but I know I still had to do my mile.  I was feeling a bit down and I really didn’t want to be around people.  It was just a weird morning. I just didn’t feel like exercising. I was just tired and feeling lazy.

There was a Santa Fun Run for CASA that I really wanted to bail on, and I could have made every excuse not to go.  But I sucked it up to go and had a really great time. It’s a great organization that places kids in good homes.

I’m glad that I just made myself go because it changed everything about my day.  Plus, it was the first time I’ve run since the marathon. I ran a pretty good time for not running in weeks.  I ran three miles in 35 minutes.

I then stopped at Dunkin Donuts to try an Iced macchiato.  If you order an expresso drink in app, you get 200 points which is a free beverage.  I love Dunkin Donuts coffee. I’ve been having a pretty lazy day since then and that’s how Saturday should be done.

What does your Saturday look like?

Blogging into the new year

Did you catch my post yesterday about sharing your goals? If you didn’t go back and read it because now I’m going to share my goal with you.  I did a run streak to help me get back into running so now I’m going to go into a blogging streak.  It’s been said that you should focus on one goal at a time and now that the marathon is over, I want to focus on rebuilding the blog. I am sharing this goal with you for accountability.  The plan is to blog every day to sharpen the saw and to… View Post
