Finally, my feet felt the road this morning. After being sick for about a week, I had had enough and dragged myself out for an early morning walk. Even though I only did 2 miles, I was super happy to be out there. I didn't even mind that it was dark...maybe I can get used to it and get back in a morning walk routine. I have definitely learned that if I don't get my walk in first thing, it is a struggle to work it in. Sometimes the struggle is due to a legitimate lack of time, but most often it is just laziness. I usually end up feeling stressed and guilty all day about when or how I will work it in. Knowing that it is already done for the day makes me happy :)
No, these are NOT Christmas lights. If you look closely to the right of the house you can see a couple of pumpkins. I love Christmas lights, but not sure I am on board with Halloween lights.
Another area I need to work on is not letting being sick derail me.
Keep tracking the food and not turn to the comfort treats. I am amazed at some of the things people do when they are sick. Check out One Crazy Penguin's half marathon while sick. If I had felt like she did I would have been tucked in bed waiting for "get well" flowers.
Somebody is a Daddy's girl. I spent quite a bit of time on the couch this week. Sometimes Millie would lie on the floor near me to keep my company, but when my husband would come in to sit with me she couldn't take her eyes off him..I know how she feels :)
We are currently undergoing some room rearrangement at our house. This room was originally my "office" (pre-husband.) Then when we got married we needed to have space for two computers, so this became my craft room and we put both computers in a bigger room. Then, we tried to combine the computers and crafting in the bigger room and made this room more of a guest room. Because the room is so small a twin bed took up most of the space and the rest of the room became a catch-all. When we got Millie we had to take down one of our computers in the big room to accommodate her crate. I liked having only one computer for the extra space, but eventually we began to stress over sharing the computer. I started blogging and needed more computer time. So the rearranging continues.
My father-in-law is building us a custom desk to accommodate both our computers. At the moment, only my husband's computer is set up on this skinny old table. I will definitely post pictures when we complete the transition. I am excited to see how it turns out - this has always been my favorite room. My husband is already calling it the Command Center...honey, don't forget you have a co-pilot :)
Now that I am up and moving again, I am hoping to finish October strong. We have a 10K race scheduled for November 1 and I would like to feel much more prepared than I do at the moment.
