Running is still going very well. I ran two days in a row in the pouring rain. In shorts. It was perfection. Effortless. A total rush. And pure awesomeness. I even managed to run another personal best since the injury, which only made getting completely soaked even more worth it! I highly recommend going for a walk. Or a run in the rain. It looks like I will be running in the rain again tomorrow.
Finally it looks and feels like winter around here. See how far the creek rose in one day?!
My February goal of trying one new recipe happened. It’s part of dessert, but that counts right? I wanted to try it before I shared it, but here is a hint…..whipped topping that doesn’t have all the processed unhealthy junk in it. In fact, I don’t think it’s unhealthy at all. And I am making it a thing. I had it with fresh fruit. But it could be using for frosting, filling or whatever. In one word? A-may-zing. I am making another batch on Tuesday, I will take photos and share the recipe soon after!
Another February goal was not being too hard on myself, which so far, has not been as challenging as I originally thought. As long as I continue to be mindful of when I start to “go there”, I have been able to stop myself. A little extra mindfulness work, but it sure made a positive difference in the overall scheme of the challenges I faced this week.I also took a personal inventory of what, who and how I spend my time. Point being, I value my time and I do not think I am totally crazy for feeling like my time should be valued by others too.
I don’t like statistics anymore than I did the last week. In fact, I still don’t plan on liking statistics at all. The hours I have spent this week on reading, figuring out and doing assignments was downright painful. And still is, I am not done yet. But I guess I should have known there would be a few tears involved in this course. One assignment at a time right?!
I have an interview in a couple of weeks for one of the jobs I applied for last Fall. I am testing for yet another phase of the hiring process for a different position. And am in the next phase for yet another position. I know, I had almost forgotten too! Apparently the county is not in a hurry to fill positions. I am excited, but honestly? I am really not attached to where I end up job-wise. I truly believe I have been on a journey of sorts, following my hearts. Seeing my hearts in nature and whatever is meant to be, will all fall into place as it’s supposed too.
I will be having a little giveaway of sorts in the coming week(s). All you have to do is answer some questions about running and you could win either an iTunes or an Amazon gift card. How easy and fun is that? More details coming soon.
And that’s a wrap-up of my week! I hope each and every one of you pretty awesome people are having an awesome long weekend!
