I’m the only one who can rescue me from me.

I went to Seward Park and ran/walked the 2.5 mile loop around the park. It was awesome.  I need to remember how great it felt.

Note to self: you really enjoy physical activity and the feelings and results it gives you but sometimes you are just so lazy. This is something you need to be better about… activity and your laziness.

The best cheerleader you can have is yourself, you just have to know how to fake it. I’m a pro at faking happy. Cheerfulness and positive self esteem can be contagious, too.

Sometimes washing my hair seems like such a chore.

After not working out for a few days, tonight we shall run!

5 days are left of April, I’m hoping for sunnier days.

Kevin informed me that this year we need to do day hikes. This is fine with me, last summer he didn’t want to do anything but find a job. I think he forgets that we have totally different days off.

American life…

We have 7 and a 1/2 months to find the best damn apartment we can afford. Any other kitchen has to be better than the one we currently have. For some reason my mom seems really bothered by the fact that we’d move by Nov. 30th.

We are now the proud owners of a 37 inch tv and a Xbox. I’m determined not to sit in front of it all summer.

I worked and wasn’t tempted by the crack-o-tastic cookies we sell. And they ordered pizza and I had none. I ate like a piggy all weekend.

I ran again on Friday, bowled on Saturday and worked out again for an hour on Sunday. Today, I’m doing my stupid pilates tape that annoys the crap out of me but gets the job done. What I’d really like is a 2nd sports bra and maybe some clothes to run in that has a pocket.

The end.

I heart my run.

I’m such the novice runner.

But last night I RAN!

I didn’t hurt, I didn’t die. I gave it my all.

And I enjoyed it, even the slight side ache.

I can now see what people get out of it.

I was so thirsty afterward, but I think I finally got it.
