Thank you all so much for your support and encouragement on yesterday’s post about my decision to leave my job. That post was very difficult to write because putting it all down on “paper” made it seem more real…and more scary. I honestly can’t say that I woke up this morning feeling no fear or doubt, but nothing worth attaining is every easy, right? Your comments completely made my day and helped calm my racing mind. I just keep re-analyzing the situation and the what ifs over and over in my head, and I know that is getting me nowhere good. I’ve got to be able to let it go and get excited about moving forward!
You all really do mean so much to me, though, and I’m so thankful for you:)
This morning I tried to ward off Satan’s attempt to bring me down by spending some time with the Lord over a seriously good yogurt bowl
blueberry soy yogurt with 1/3 cup raw oats, 1/2 tbsp chia seeds and some dried cranberries
Later I headed to the gym – I’ve been wanting to try out the Turbo Kick class and today seemed like a great day to do it! Maybe not. I was the only one who showed up! The instructor and I ended up striking up a conversation and talked through the entire class. I was kind of bummed that I didn’t get to try it out, but I found out a lot of interesting things about certifications that might help me in the future, so I suppose it was worth it.
After we finished chatting I hopped on the treadmill and cranked out 3 miles. I forgot to reset the treadmill after my walking warm-up, so I don’t have final stats unfort. It was a pretty good run though, and my last mile was my strongest, so I consider that a win!
I followed the run with some of Polly’s yoga for runners. I’ve been doing this after every run this week, and I feel like it really is helping me to loosen up a lot, which helps with my runs. My legs haven’t been feeling as tight, and I feel lighter on my feet. If you haven’t checked out her site, you should stop by – she has a plethora of great yoga videos! And she’s cute as a button:)
I whipped up a new, but very simple little dish for lunch. I’ve been craving this new organic pasta sauce we bought last time we were at the store.
I tried it once before and loved it! And check out the stellar ingredients.
I mixed 1/2 cup of sauce with 1/3 cup of black beans and a handful of frozen spinach. Popped it in the micro for about a minute and a half and poured it over top 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa. It was delicious! The flavors combined perfectly.
On the side I also had a sliced pear sprinkled with cinnamon.
You should try this concoction!
This afternoon I’ve been working on some stuff for Outbox (our business), and I talked to my sister for a loooonnng time! Love conversations that are so good they go on for hours:)
I’m off now to meet with Mohammad for some tutoring. Hope you guys have a great day, and I’ll see you tonight!
The long weekend is almost here! What are your plans?
Will you be shooting any fireworks or just watching them?
Are you a phone person? Do you have trouble keeping in touch with long distance friends?
