In the battle of pajamas vs. running sneakers yesterday, I am happy to say that the sneakers won and I ran for forty five minutes at the gym. It is below freezing here and although I have the gear for outdoor running, my parents were gracious enough to turn on my gym membership for January so I am going to use that indoor track!
This is my new sweatshirt I got for Christmas. I'm sure it was waaaay too much for any sane person to spend on a sweatshirt but hey it's the best sweatshirt in the entire world and I'm obsessed with it. At school everyone dresses up so I usually wear a dress or skirt everyday but when I'm home, I basically bum around in pajamas or gym gear all day everyday. I do enjoy winter break.
Today I had plans to go to spin in the morning, but I overslept so I ran on the track instead. I wasn't that upset about waking up late, I was exhausted from New Years festivities. I am also back to my morning oatmeal routine. Oatmeal makes me feel very healthy. I like it extra mushy with lots of milk :) I ate it while watching School of Rock, which is a movie that just never gets old for me.
I was thinking of my resolutions for the New Year, and if I had any. I don't really like the idea of resolutions because I feel like they're taken sort of mildly and people just give up on them by the end of February. So instead of saying that I have some resolutions, these are my new goals.
Resolutions (or goals, really) for 2013
1. Eat less sweets (everything in moderation)
It's not that I eat a lot of desserts, it's just that I tend to grab for things around 4 pm. I think it's a blood sugar thing. I'm going to try to counteract it by eating something healthy, instead of a cookie or chocolate. I am also going to try to keep to my rule of no eating after 9 pm.
2. Break 2:00 for a half marathon
