Smattering of thoughts

- is smattering a word?  Must google.  See results below.

- it's a good thing that none of my colleagues have their normal dish of chocolate/treats in their office or else I wouldn't have the willpower to say no.

- despite my physio saying no long runs, I did a sllloooowww 12k run with a colleague last weekend. In the rain. In the freezing cold rain (I had to take a 30 min bath afterwards just to warm up.  And I kept adding more hot water every 5ish minutes).

- now that I think I could get back into running, I don't really feel like it.  I am doing another long run this weekend and am thinking I will run the half (so long as I can get past the whole "I need to be fast" thing).  I love that my week doesn't revolve around when I can get my runs in.

- I am loving my workouts lately, now that it's not all running all the time, and I have to say that I LOVE the diversity.  Yoga! Swimming! Cardio!  Strength!

- We had some busy weekends (weekends away visiting family, weekends where Jeff was away and despite good intentions of preparing sweat sessions I could do in the comfort of my own home, the boys and I were having so much fun that I was pooped by the end of the night and just wanted to get in bed) and I don't feel guilty about not working out.  That's life, right?  It gets busy, and the important part is you jump right back on that wagon.

- I want to get a haircut, but I've finally gotten myself to a point where I only have to wash my hair every 3 days (and this is with exercising (read: sweating) once a day).  It's because it's longer and by the third day (ie: today) I can wear it up.  I don't think I could get away with the 3 day cycle if I had short hair.

- I sometimes have a really stupid smile (see above).

- The scale isn't moving, but I'm on day 78 of journalling my food intake and my workouts.  I KNOW that I'm eating 95% better than I used to.  I KNOW I'm making the right choices.  I am making my health a priority.  My lifestyle is changing.  Slowly but surely.  I am a different person than I was a couple months ago and life is brighter now.
