Days 13-14

I did good both days but I over did it at some point.

Day 13 I ran outside and used my nike+ which totally made my day. I am very excited to have that toy again (if anyone is on nike+ and wants to compete or join something together I am totally game). Then my roommate invited me to a restorative yoga class at her fancy new gym. The class was amazing and I felt great afterwards.

Day 14 sister sent me a text about doing a class with her and warming up on the EFX. This sounded like the perfect non-running day workout. When I got to the gym she and Nat were on the treadmills I was feeling really good and decided to run again but just do easy intervals. Then the class came and we did this bend over with a weight in your hand while lifting your leg behind you thing. I knew while I was doing it that I was hurting in a bad not a good way. I modified it by putting down the weight but I still don't think I should have done that move. My hamstrings and lower back are beyond sore. I could barely walk yesterday and still can't squat or bend over and not in that cool "I got a good workout" kind of way. Lesson learned don't run two days in a row and listen to bad hurts cause they don't like to go away.

I keep feeling myself getting in a funk but I am trying hard not to, especially with the boy's B-Day being tomorrow. On that note the things I am focusing on to help fend off the funk are:

1) New finger nail polish
2) 2 new magazines to go through and put in the notebook tonight
3) Diet Orange soda being in the work fridge
4) It is supposed to hit 50 degrees this weekend
5) Realizing there was a time when being where I am now was the goal


"be able to shop at regular stores and have a cool wardrobe" - Banana is a fav now but there was a time where I could only shop at Lane Bryant and Torrid, and I feel good about the clothes I wear most of the time

"be able to afford Chipotle" - it is not as coveted as it once was but being so broke you have to wait weeks for a $6 burrito was no fun and though not out of the woods should I crave it I can afford it just about anytime

"own a cool dog" - Jersey definitely fits the bill even if Beau doesn't always agree

"use good cosmetics and hair products" - no more bad stuff on my face and hair just because it is cheaper bare essentials, stilla and deva curl products now reign supreme

"live in a cool apartment decorated well" - while it is true; I can't take any credit for it, my roommate found the place, decorated it and makes it affordable for my broke-self to live in one of the nicest neighborhoods in KC

These goals are pretty old and may not seem very lofty but 7 years ago when I set them they were far off dreams. It does feel good to realize that however slowly, I am moving, and doing so in the right direction. It also helps me realize I do accomplish things and that I can accomplish this whole 30 by 30 thing too.
