Buckle up, my mind is racing and I need to spew some words.
Today was such a weird day. It wasn’t a bad day but I sort of just felt hazy. I mean first of all it was a Monday. On top of that it was Miles’s first day at the daycare at my work. Change is hard. Change can be good, but it’s hard.
I was a bundle of nerves dropping him off. Would he behave? Would he share? Would he nap? Would he eat anything? I won’t bore you with all the answers but overall he had a pretty good day. I was teary when I got to my desk this morning and never really got my bearings all day. I nearly spilled a hot cup of coffee, did spill a cup of kashi at my desk, felt clumsy in general and just anxious all day. It was great to get a few quick updates on Miles throughout the day from his teachers but it was just a long day. Then people were just assholes on my commute home. Hey people, stop being assholes! We would all like to get home alive!
Another topic that has me anxious lately is my bod progress. I blogged a few weeks ago about trying to figure out my diet with my new surroundings and schedule but something must be going wrong because I’m up about 4 lbs. Basically I mostly do good all day and then come home and rage on the pantry. Nothing new, just have to figure it out again.
Running has been lackluster lately too. I can pretty much kiss that sub-25 at the Fish Festival 5K goodbye… which is OK. I definitely haven’t been committed or worked for it so I really don’t deserve it. I did go to a killer spin class at Psycle last Friday and it really reminded me again I love to spin and cycle. I’m contemplating purchasing a pricey (for me) package of classes there.
Despite the prior paragraph I did finally get in a run over 3 miles today. Not by much but it was. It was also the most humid run in a long time. It reminded me of a run last year and I had to dig up the photo just to remind myself how far I’ve come.
Yes, my hair looks good in a rooster hawk, what of it?
Other fun things… I finally got some jeans hemmed and got to wear them today. And some new Sperrys for summmmmah!
Not so fun thing… I shattered my iPhone screen and they want $199 to replace it. Oh hey, that sucks.
What sucks and doesn’t suck about your Monday?
