I’ve been creepily stalking away at several blogs over the past few months and I just couldn’t stay away. I think this community is just great and hope to be at least a small part of it.
I guess I’ll start by explaining the Blog Title. This will probably sound a little dramatic, so bear with me… but as I looked back over the last couple (ten) years I have sort of come to the realization that I don’t really remember the last time I was happy. I mean, there have been happy days and happy experiences, but I feel like I’ve just been living for the last decade. Living as in the bare minimum that a person has to do to be considered human. I never really realized it because I was so busy… living. Now that I’ve graduated from college I’ve been doing that whole reflective “what am I going to do with my life” thing, and I realize that the only thing I really want to do with it, is ENJOY it. This blog will hopefully allow me to take steps toward accomplishing that goal. I’ll reveal a lot more about myself along the way (probably too much…) and hopefully go from feeling a little “low” to feeling something better. I’m just going to take it one day at a time.
I don’t really know why I picked this particular day to start this… nothing really exciting happened and I have nothing cool or clever to say. But I just needed to start. Hopefully I’ll get better as time goes on. But here goes…
Today was pretty ordinary. I woke up with a Benadryl hangover and promptly skipped my 6 a.m. workout to sleep for an extra 45 minutes. I got ready super fast and made a spinach and egg white omelette with shredded cheese and half a whole wheat english muffin with simply fruit strawberry spread (not pictured because I didn’t know I would be blogging tonight). I went to work and had a very uneventful day.
Side note: I do Public Relations/Marketing/Editing for a technology firm here in OKC. It’s a great job and it pays the bills, though my ultimate dream is to be a “writer”.
For lunch a had an english muffin with 2 tablespoons smart balance peanut butter, a yogurt soup (I’ll explain this when I have my camera), and a clementine. Then I worked some more and then had a snack of one kiwi, 1/4 cup of mango chunks and a light Frigo string cheese. A little more work (mostly reading blogs) and then I went home!
Once at the casa I had this snack.
Half a S’mores Luna bar and a clem. The DVD is Yoga for Runners. I did a few hamstring stretches, but didn’t really enjoy it overall. Then I headed out to walk to the gym (it’s a mile round trip) where I did a puny 30 minutes on the elliptical at a non-respectable pace. I’m super sore from a cardio toning class I took last night.
a whole wheat tortilla with 1/3 cup of shredded cheese, 1 tablespoon Sabra roasted red pepper hummus, and a spinach salad with 1/4 cup frozen mango chunks, a clem, and a splash of balsamic vinegar. For dessert I had the remainder of my Luna bar.
I am currently trying to figure this whole blog thing out and avoiding doing anything more productive than that.
Thanks for reading my blog!
