We ran this morning and also went to yoga. I love practicing yoga after a run because my muscles are more warmed up, which helps me get into the poses. But now my legs are sore and I am having trouble motivating myself to do anything productive. Sundays are meant to be lazy, right?

Just a tease

When I thought the weather was cooling off...the humidity was still high this morning when Joe and I ran. I have had a harder time getting up early in the AM because the sun is taking its time to rise - typically isn't coming up until after 6:45 or so. Joe rode his bike for 1.5 hours before we ran for 30 minutes. I think I was still asleep for most of the run.
We are planning a trip to NYC in Oct. I signed up for a CE weekend at SUNY optometry so will be spending most of the weekend in classes, but at least we have the nights to have fun! I decided this on Tuesday and was inexplicably in a much better mood afterwards. Having something to look forward to definitely makes life much sweeter. I am also planning a trip to SF in Nov to visit my best friend Shaila and her family. I can't wait!

Fall is coming

The leaves are slowly starting to turn. Houston never gets a real fall where everything turns golden, but the weather seems to be less humid. Of course it could be just a tease and we can get over-90 degree humidity at any minute.
Going through a rough patch right now. Life love the future...too many unknowns. I just need to take one day at a time, I guess.

Back again

When I get out of the habit of doing something, I feel guilty for not doing it and procrastinate it even more. This applies to my life as well as my blogging. I am the world's worst procrastinator.
So last Sunday we had a La Strada/Berry Hill revivial. The weather was amazing and everyone was in such a good mood Joe and I couldn't resist partaking in the fun. So of course we had a hard time getting back onto a good workout schedule last week.
But at least we had a good time. And we're back on track (for today. It is yet another Sunday so who knows what the afternoon will bring?)

Daily Creativity

When Joe is away I find it hard to motivate myself to get up and run. I made it to the gym yesterday, but not so much today. My saving grace is yoga this afternoon.
I am loving the new BPS class I am taking. Doing something creative everyday for the month of Sept. She gives us a layout to do every other day and then a mini project like card or tag the other days. I haven't been doing the mini projects but I love having the guidance to do layouts. I have a hard time designing my own layouts so scraplifing and using sketches are perfect for me!
I also signed up for a class in Oct using kits. Hopefully we'll be making lots of layouts so I can use up my stash!
One more day and I'm off to Wisconsin. This week has felt like a long one even though it's only been 4 days...

It's almost that time

Ironman time! Joe is already in Madison and I will be joining him on Sat. All his hard work over the past 6 months will be revealed on Sunday.

Rainy weekend

Joe and I have had a running/yoga/relaxing long weekend. No late nights. No hangovers. We may just be growing up - um, kind of scary! Joe's Ironman is less than a week away - I am ready for it to be over and I'm not even competing!
We wasted 2 hours of our life this afternoon on a movie titles Self-Medicated. WAY too melodramatic and drawn out, with a lot of bad acting.
That's all for now, I am going to enjoy the rest of the weekend.
