This weekend was pretty chill! I woke up and ate a great breakfast and then headed out to run. I did better this time than Thursday, but I can’t help but feel pretty darn discouraged over how slow I’ve gotten. I use to easily knock out 3 miles in about 29 minutes. I know that’s not really fast, but it was good for me! I’m back up to an 11:30/12:00 mile! YIKES. not happy. I guess that’s what I get for taking a break from running for MONTHS. ugh. Whoops. Well, I’m still determined to get out there, no matter how slow I am. I only stopped for very short walking breaks twice on my run on Saturday, so I was pleased about that. Tomorrow is suppose to be warm(ish) again, so I’ll probably head out again and see what I can do:) I want to do P90x, but I’m going to save that for the days I’m snowed in and take advantage of the nice weather now.
After my run I made a smoothie and had a quest bar (NOM). Then I headed out to do some Christmas shopping and found some great deals! Got home and made a giant caesar salad for Granny, A, and I. It was a light dinner because I knew A wouldn’t get done with worship practice till late. So we ended up eating around 8:45 (not the best), but kept it light with salad, so it wasn’t too terrible.
Church was this morning and it was great. On the way there A says “I have to say, I love Faith (our church). It’s my favorite church I’ve ever attended.” When I heard that my heart just melted. I LOVE seeing him get up and play the drums every weekend. I will never get over how talented he is and I love that he’s filling in a role that was so desperately needed at church. Everyone just loves on him and it’s just such an incredible blessing to him. I just stand back, take it all in, and praise and thank God for it. The message definitely tugged at my heart strings too. I won’t go into too much detail, but I really feel convicted about praying for and seeking out my friends, especially those who are far from God. I need to get more outside of myself and my comfort zone and simply love on them. I pray that’s a focus in my life and especially while I have more time on break.
After church A and I like to have our once a week treat/cheat meal. We went and got Chinese and yes, it was delicious. Honestly, I didn’t even do that bad. Half of my plate was veggies, and I stayed away from noodle and rice and just stuck to the shrimp and chicken. You better believe I had crab rangoons though… 😛
We then spontaneously decided to go see a movie, so we stopped at the theater and Mockingjay was just starting so we (FINALLY) got to see it! That was our first movie together, too! haha. It was fun, and a fantastic film. Mockingjay was my least favorite book and film (part one at least), but J-Law did an incredible job acting, so props to her.
We got home, and A had to get going back on his way home. His winter job starts tomorrow, and he wants to wake up early and hit the gym, so he needs a goodnight’s sleep. It’s weird not being able to see him daily anymore. A tough adjustment, I’m not going to lie. But I know it’s good for not only our relationship, but for us as individuals as well. I’m excited to see what God does during this time!:)
I haven’t eaten since Chinese (still full!)…But I can’t stop drinking COFFEE. gosh I love this stuff. AND Peppermint Mocha creamer oh my GOSH 😛 If I can, I think tomorrow I want to chill at a coffee shop or the library to just read for a while. I’ve got quite the list to get through (another post for later) and time’s a-wastin!
AYWAYS! This week… I’m thinking I should make some goals. Let’s see…:
1. Eat clean all week (even if/when eating out!)
2. Work out everyday. No excuses.
3. Finish Xmas shopping. Be smart with money.
4. Love more.
5. Finish 2 books. Spend less time on computer.
6. Drink more water.
