change of pace
nothing like a weekend change of scenery to put a spark back into your regular life. or, i'm thankful to say, at least that's how it feels this morning!
i feel like i've been in a bit of a rut lately on several fronts.
☑ work rut. post-boards reaction? or perhaps i'm missing my regular clinical duties? i don't know, but i now have just one week left of my research month and a LOT of work to do!
i have high hopes of making this time as productive as possible.
☑ food rut. i didn't do my usual grocery shopping or cooking last week, and my nutrition has definitely suffered significantly! i don't want to admit how many meals over the past 7 days were comprised of toast + nut butter.
it was fun at first, but now i'm actually tired of that combination (previously, i didn't think that was possible!) and just craving REAL FOOD, preferably loaded with green and orange ( <-- it's pumpkin season, after all).
☑ workout rut. i ran 33 miles last week! i actually think this is more running than makes sense right now, and both of my achilles tendons agree this morning. i have been been doing only very modest and half-hearted cross-training, and nearly all of my miles have been at a relaxed pace.
i was complaining about feeling like i was plodding and josh commented, "well, it's almost like you read all of daniels running formula (great book, by the way!) and made a point of doing exactly the opposite of everything you're supposed to do." and he was right! i shouldn't be so surprised, and i certainly shouldn't whine about it.
☑ writing rut. hopefully you all aren't nodding your heads TOO MUCH in agreement right now, but i feel like i could use some inspiration for fresh content on this here l'il website. i think i will take the rest of this week to work on finishing up my pages.
tomorrow's project: the run tab. this shouldn't be too hard, especially since i've already written a 6-part running story series.
☑ shopping rut.
out of stock!?!? #(*@.
