I am happy to report I have a new plan. I am feeling positive and in the process will work through my goals. I started the Couch 2 5K program over. I did Day 1 of Week 1 yesterday and it was a piece of cake so tomorrow I will be going to week 2 day 1. When I hit a week that is challenging, I am going to stay on that week and I am going to listen to my body more. If I need to repeat a week, thats ok. I think that will help me achieve my goals is a better way. I know running is a slow process and I just need to be more patient with myself. I also want to take it a little easier running so that I can alternate 3 days a week running and 3 days a week of my NMTZ DVD. I did that today and it was tough! Its a great DVD though with plenty of moves for beginners but plenty of room to challenge. Plus, there are so many different moves that I don’t see getting bored with it anytime soon.
And in other news, got my hair highlighted today. I put some honey and red highlights in and it looks great! Rob at Drew James always seems to know what I am wanting and he is so quick too! It makes my hair a little more interesting and gives it a little volume too! Yay!
I am soo looking forward to next weekend and seeing family and friends in Nashville. I miss that town more and more and I hope that this crazy journey I am on will lead me home. I miss being around my family and I want to see my friends more. I really want to buy a home and stay put. I love our apartment and our life here, but I think I am ready to own my own home and pour my creativity into it. I will have to be patient and just take more pictures when I go home this time so that I can look at them when I am feeling a little homesick. A least I have Eric here and my animals. They really are my home when it comes down to it and I couldn’t ask for a better place for my heart to live everyday.
Found a couple new tools that help with reminders. Brompt will email you when you haven’t blogged (you set the schedule). And I got water tracker for my iPhone and it reminds me to drink water (push notifications) and tracks the amount I have had that day. Its really great and has annoyed me just enough to drink significantly more water the last few days.
Well I do think that is quite a long enough post. I have more to say but I will be back on Monday or so (my 25th birthday!) for some more short and long term goals and some reflections in general since it is a big birthday!
