Tonight we went out to this little old school house to get some photos for my homework assignment.
and then we ended up in the middle of nowhere on this dusty road.
It was fun. And hot. Very hot.
And then I came home to upload the pics, and the program wouldn’t work! I’m hoping my instructor will give me an extension…it’s crazy feeling like I’m in college again.
We also managed to get to the store and buy groceries, which I’ll be showcasing as the week goes on.
I’ve kind of strayed a bit from my straight laced eating habits, which inevitable happens to all of us from time to time. And while I don’t expect myself to be my best all the time, my body’s is not thanking me for it. So, tomorrow (my next meal) it’s back on track for me!
Also at the grocery store tonight I accomplished one of my 27 goals for my 27th year of life! At least I made a start toward it. I bought Burt’s Bees all natural facial cleanser and moisturizer. Lately I’ve been feeling more and more bothered by the fact that I put chemicals all over my face and don’t think a thing about it. I spend so much money and time on what I put in my body – what I put on my body should get the same attention and concern. This is just a first step as all my other makeup products are not all natural. But I must start somewhere! Anyway, I’ll do a full review on these products here in a couple of weeks!
Next in news tonight;) Jon and I have officially decided to drop down to the half marathon in November as opposed to the full. This actually causes me to regress on my list of 27 things:(
It has been a very hard decision, but we both feel that it is the best one. When I announced that we were going to train for the full, I mentioned that Jon’s work situation was going to make it difficult to get the training time in, but that we wanted to shoot for it anyway. Well, you’ve heard the quote – shoot for the moon and if you miss, you’ll land among the stars. I guess our stars are going to be the half marathon.
I am so competitive that this has been a very hard decision for me to swallow. But with Jon taking on his boss’ responsibilities (on top of his own) for the next 3 months plus the demands that Outbox is putting on us, it just isn’t going to be feasible or healthy for us to train for the full. We know from our first full marathon that training is a huge time and energy commitment. While it’s one that we definitely plan to make in the near future, it’s not going to be right now. It’s taken me several days to accept the decision and to get excited about training for the half. But I’m all on board now, and I’m so ready! So, we’ll run it, and we’ll have a blast running it together:)
For the record, I did consider going ahead and doing the full on my own, seeing as how I do still have more time than the husband. But after discussing it, we decided that it’s much more fun to stick together throughout training as well as the race. Like I said this morning “it’s always better when we’re together” 🙂 We’ve run all our races together so far, and there’s no good reason to stop now.
So, since we had already started our full training a few weeks ago, we’re a little bit ahead of schedule. We’re just going to press on, and either run an extra run or two in the weeks preceding the race, or have a bit of flexibility if something comes up one weekend between now and then.
So, that’s all the big news for tonight. Hope you all have had an awesome weekend – time to get geared up for the week ahead!
Do you use all natural skin care products? Is that something that you think about/is important to you? How do you go about choosing a skin care system?
