A severe storm has rolled into my town and I love the sound of my husband laughing as he plays his video games downstairs, knowing my dog is safe and dry, and the heavy sound of rain drops falling on the roof, accompanied by the booms and crashes. I have thoroughly enjoyed my weekend so far, I have concluded week one of my new diet, have acquired new running shoes in hopes that I can get myself motivated to spend that much time associated with my fitness, I have broken the small barrier of writers block I had in Filly and Miles' story and got rid of a bunch of clothes to send off to Good Will.
If you have read my blog before you know a couple of things, 1.) I do not post often or will post in spurts. forgetting about the blog for months at a time. 2.) Say I'm going to get back on the bandwagon with my running and eating better. Only to not do that at all. So here it goes, I'm going to do that again. Third, fourth, tenth times the charm right?
Now, I have realized a lot about myself the past few months. I am 25.5 years old now. I cannot dress in clothes that I wore in high school. Hence the bag of clothes I have placed in my trunk of my car to drop off at Good Will tomorrow. I also bought a pair of raspberry (cheap) high heels. ADORABLE, and totally frivolous. I will wear nicer clothes when I get home from work.
I also realized I want to do a lot. I want to read all my books I have not read (see On The Shelves of Tserof), I want to draw more, I want to finish my story or revise finished stories....Yet none of these wants get done. After adopting a dog from the Humane Society, Dovahkiin (yes after the hero in Skyrim), I realized I get a lot more done when I get out and get my butt moving. I will get up in the morning and walk with Dovah for 20- 35 minutes before work. Get home and walk another 10 minutes followed by a long (45 min) walk at night time. During the 'down' time between walkies, I do get a lot more done. I used to write lists when I was growing up to get activities or chores done. I will try to do them, or put reminders in my phone to do the things I want to do.
So, I yet again state I will walk and try to get more runs in, eat better, write and draw more, finish all my books I have to read and dress like a 25 year old woman. To try and accomplish these goals, I will blog more about my status of these goals.
Enjoy your rainy Sunday.
