I am going to make this short but sweet because 2 of my favorite shows are on right now! The Sing-Off and How I Met Your Mother! I hate that I only watch a few TV shows and they all seem to be on at the same time!!!
Today, I sat down and hardcore updated my planner. I have been so busy that I haven’t been able to sit down and make sure it was all up to date! One thing that I added: a trip to Penn State this weekend with the beau! We randomly got tickets to the game, and I know how much he loves his PSU football so it should be a fun time!
I also signed up for a 5k. I can’t tell you the last time I did a 5k, and I have never done one in colder weather! I don’t even know what to expect of myself. I am really excited for the race…it is at the end of November and you get to run through Christmas lights and decorations! My sister, mom, dad, and hopefully others are all going to walk or run the race! If you are in the DC area and interested, check out the website!!
When trying to figure out what I wanted for dinner tonight, I checked out the fridge and shelves and had these ingredients: corn, peas, chicken broth, noodles, and sweet potatoes. Best solution? Seems pretty simple to me! Soup! I threw all of the ingredients together with some salt and pepper and perfecto! Plus side: I have enough to last all week!
While preparing my dinner, I finished reading A Stolen Life: Jaycee Dugard’s memoir from her kidnapping of eighteen years. Wow. What a terrifyingly great story. I cannot imagine what it would have taken to endure what Jaycee went through. The book touches on rape, deception, and emotional abuse among other topics, and yet Jaycee and her two daughters made it through in the end and can tell their story. I highly recommend the book. It made me tear up, laugh, hate, love. I learned a lot about the world and my own feelings while reading. Now, I will add it to the Book Nook!
Remember when I talked about Highs and Lows of my days?
Well, here are my highs and lows from today!
High: Receiving this in my email…
Low: At the gym, two other girls had the same workout pants on that I had. And all I could think of the whole time is how much better they looked in their pants. Bah. Why do I think this way? Immediately upon noticing we matched, I thought “I bet they are wearing smalls…I wish I could fit into smalls. They look so much better on them, blah blah blah.” I definitely need to work on my thoughts when around others at the gym. I am strong and healthy. I should not compare myself to others!!
Oh ya, and yesterday on the way back from Erie, the BF and I stopped at my parent’s house in Pittsburgh. It was amazing to eat a home-cooked meal, watch the Steelers in my hometown, and see this little man:
Okey dokey…back to my shows!
Do you ever catch yourself thinking similar things at the gym or wherever you work out?
What’s your favorite TV show?
