so, on my days off... ok on most days... i spend an hour eating breakfast and cruising the interwebs (in bed still). blogs. email. facebook. bank account. repeat - just in case a missed something or if something was important enough to open in a tab. 

does anybody else do this? do have an interwebs problem?

i'm going to have real life now. ok thanks.

sunday funday.

what's that mean anyway? my sundays are never that fun.

anywho, it was quite the day. it began beautifully with greek yogurt, fresh blueberries, granola & big coconut shreds. yum, right? and a giant bottle of water. (oh hi, i live in the south where you dehydrate just by thinking about going outside...)

work was... work. it started with ninja cable managing. blah zeh blah this that and the third. a wrinkly tshirt. yada yada yada. feedback. feedback. feedback. straighten. straighten. the end.

then i made homemade nachos! with balsamic chicken. little orange tomatoes. romaine. and raspberry salsa. oh yes. and then i ran 2.5 miles. and drank a lot of water and gatorade. and here we are.

blogs & pandora & a shower.

see you tomorrow. xo.

taken from joy the baker. it's inspiration on my desktop.
an excerpt from my journal...
so, here goes - i'm doing this because i just started training for a half marathon. crazy pants, i know. anyway, one of the training books told me i should keep a journal to track my progress - Lord willing. i guess i'll fill in the back story. i have a crazy pants friend - Faith Adedokun - who i adore with my whole heart.... ok. so she texted me one day to ask if my crazy pants would run a half marathon with her crazy pants. well, i checked my schedule and i was free (don't act like it's nbd because i'm actually already booked for most of november...) so, i said, "ok. please don't let me die." or something to that effect. really i'm doing it (mostly because of Faith) but because i need a tangible goal in my life... right. real life doesn't have goals because it's real life - you reached all of your goals to get to adulthood and, well, now you're fucked. why? because you're single, living in a studio apartment with your fish and dead mint plant, wondering wtf you're supposed to do with the rest of your life, thinking about grad school while working for a kick ass company but not making enough money to justify turning on the air conditioning in SC summer, all while battling a caffeine addiction and asking yourself why beta fish can't pay rent, too. oy. ps. who would even pay my tuition? and that brings us to week two of half marathon* training (* here on referred to as 'crazy pants' or my personal hell).
any questions? xo.
sunday, i ran two miles.
monday, i ran two miles.
today, i ran two miles.

i just need to add eleven more miles.

I spend a lot of time thinking about why we do what we do and why we don't do what we don't do. I like to do lists and checking things off. I plan my days with detail - workouts, grocery stores, visiting people, coffee breaks. It gives me a sense of control & stability. When things happen outside of my iCal, I get confused...

I'm a horrible decision maker - big or small. It takes me forever and I always wonder about my other option. Hmph. I also usually wonder about my motive - did I make the decision because I wanted it or because it was the right thing or because someone else thought it was a good idea? I think, in general, we forget to make decisions that make us happy or we don't make moves because they're scary. Is that a good way to live?

Tell me, please, when was the last time you made a big/life-changing decision for yourself and not for someone else? When was the last time you made a completely crazy decision that turned out for the best? And when you make most of your decisions what is influencing you the most?

I've been sick today so between random & small chores, I finished Season 3 of Gossip Girl and then I moved onto Sex and the City the movie. And, while I've seen a lot of movies in my day, I firmly believe the saddest scene in a movie ever is in the middle of the street after Carrie yells at Big and grabs onto Charlotte. It breaks my heart every time. Ok, maybe there's a scene in The Way We Were that rivals it, but it's a pretty close race. Oy.
