What Day is it?

I am re-dedicating myself to this blog, if it is the last thing I do (well it won't be the last thing I do, but you know what I mean).  The only problem I have is, I couldn't figure out what day it was! I started writing a What I Love Wednesday post, until I realized, it is still Tuesday! I have had an eventful morning with a great interview and getting some online errands done this afternoon, so the day seriously flew by!

Things are starting to look up, and I am starting to come out of my cloudy haze of non-productiveness and lethargy.  It could be due to the fact that I am finally seeing the sun and some warm temps here in Boston, or that I am getting some great interviews in on the job front, but I am seriously happy today.  

I got some great miles in last night - I know I had planned on just running to the gym and hitting up an abs and spin class, but as soon as I stepped outside, I knew I had to just keep running.  It wasn't a pleasant run at all physically, but mentally it was fantastic!! The weather was 70 degrees F, so I ran an honorary 7 miles, in just under an hour.  There were quite a few stops to just breath and stretch and to take in the crowds of people that had flocked to the water on the first 100% gorgeous day of the spring.  I kept thinking to myself, how lucky I am to have such a pretty running route along the Harborwalk, and so many more options around the city to explore.

Physically the run was tough due to what I would attribute to poor nutrition throughout the weekend and day, poor hydration and shock of a warm weather run after so many runs in the lower temps.  I felt so, so good when I got back to my apartment though, like I had finally accomplished something with my day!  I have been making healthier eating choices and stopped cheating on my No Meat March challenge.

Another positive thing to add to workout mix is that I have a fun run to look forward to this evening with Jessie, breakfast for dinner, and the Switched at Birth finale - plus, I have started running with Back on My Feet, here in Boston on Wednesday & Friday mornings at 5:45 AM (I would like to get into Monday mornings, but I am working myself into those).  I just started last Wednesday, so my third run will be tomorrow morning, but I am already loving the feeling of not only supporting those less fortunate than myself with companionship and healthy habits, but I am also getting myself up and active before most of the city, which is an unbeatable high.

Off to meet Jessie for some Esplanade running and yummy eats!! Happy Tuesday everyone!

Do you ever completely forget what day it is?

Since I have been out of work, I never know which day it is, it seriously messes with my head!!

  1. I TOTALLY forgot what day it was, too (I was leaving a message for my mom and said, "it's Wednesday night..., wait - is it Tuesday or Wednesday?! I think it's Tuesday - obviously it's been a long week") My mom must think I'm losing it :)

    BoMF is such a great organization. I've done some volunteering with the group but haven't been able to committ to the super early runs in DC (it's a 15-20 min drive and 5:45 is EARLY). So glad you are enjoying it.
