Playing a bit of catch up!

Indy Mini W12D5 - easy 4

I ended up at work way later than normal on Friday so I had to cut this run a tad short. My brother called me right as I was leaving, so I ended up talking to him my entire run. Made it go by quicker, so that was nice! It was a beautiful day on Friday so there were tons of people out enjoying the weather

After that run I had to get ready super fast to meet my friends out! We went out to dinner and drinks since one of them is moving to Chicago. Happy for her, but sad to see her go!

Indy Mini W12D6 - easy 3

I had to cut this run short too. Well I guess I didn’t have to, but I wanted to so I could get to Michigan faster! I was headed up here to spend the weekend with Scott and see Rent!! I went with Scott and my parents. Rent is my favorite musical, so I was very excited to see it! It was great :)

Hope you’re all having good weekends!! :)

Organizing My Life...Continued

I was very busy today and yet I don’t feel like I got a lot done. Like I said yesterday, my professional life has felt a little disorganized lately. One of the reasons is because I’ve been feeling a lot of pressure being a leader of several sailors. While it’s been a lot as of late, I have been recognized for my efforts.
I was named the Defense Intelligence Agency Sailor of the Year. This means I’m now up for the Navy District Washington Sailor of the Year where I will be competing against several other Sailors for that honor. The pressure to do well has been a little overwhelming. Anyway, this morning was the first step in getting ready for that professional test by getting my official picture taken.

The next part is getting my personal life in order. One part of that is getting out of debt. To do so, I’ve decided to take on a second job. Sure, I’ll have little to no personal life, but it’s only until the stress of my financial burdens are less stressful. The only place I applied to was Nike to become one of the Pacers. Today they called me in for an interview and less than an hour later I had the job. I have to do some paperwork and training and whatnot, but now after a year of being led by Pacers at Nike, I’ll be one of them. I think it’s kind of cool. 

When I finally got home I relaxed for a little bit before heading out for today’s run. While I was relaxing it rained so I was happy to have avoided that. It did cool things down a bit but it made for a pretty nice evening run. 

My legs felt a little tired so I didn’t push as hard as I normally do until the end. At that point I started feeling a little more like myself. Now, after all the stretching and foam rolling my legs feel tired. I’m ready for a good night’s sleep. 

No more fatty foods, no more eating out, no chips. Drinking water daily, no pop, and no energy drinks. Lots of fruits and vegetables, and home cooked meals. No more just laying around. Go for walks often, and go to the gym almost every single night. I’m tired of feeling down about my body, its sad and pathetic and I need to start being happy about my body. Until then, only healthy things. Getting my life in order.
