I’m not going to lie, I went into today with some lingering Sunday Night Anxiety.
I went into today thinking about how much I have to get done this week, how much I need to get done in the next few weeks so I can just relax on the beach in St. Croix.
Nothing spectacular happened today, but I was still in a fabulous mood, and I even still had plenty of energy by the time I left. I’m trying to focus on eating better–and less processed food–before I go to St. Croix, and even just focusing on that the past few days is already making a difference. (Or maybe there was more caffeine in my coffee than I realized this morning?)
I got a new haircut yesterday, and I felt like a new person walking into work today.
I stopped at a little boutique after my haircut, and got this sweater and bracelet with a gift card I won a few months ago, and they, too, put a little more pep into my step at work.
I got out of work at a decent hour, and did a bit of pre-Christmas shopping. Some people get sick of Christmas music by the end of the season, BUT NOT ME. I was basically grinning walking around Flatiron tonight.
I came home and assembled some leftovers into a meal. Rotisserie chicken, stuffing and string beans with almonds. I’m 3/3 for having prepared my own meals today, something that hasn’t happened in a while. I’m trying my best to stop spending so much damn money on food, despite being busy.
And I got this sweet postcard in the mail from the Army Ten-Miler. This little postcard reminded me of a really fun day with my friends and had a hilarious picture of me on it. It’s on my refrigerator right now, but it may go to work to be hung next to my Marine Corps certificate. Unclear.
I was recently selected to be a ZOOMA Ambassador for their Annapolis race next year, which means I will get a free entry in exchange for blogging about the race. I had a lengthy phone conversation with their founder, Brae Blackley, a few months ago, and she told me about how she quit her job in corporate law to follow her dreams and create a women’s only race. I love hearing stories about people who follow their hearts to do what makes them happy–especially when it involves encouraging others to adopt a healthy lifestyle. And I love crabcakes and football, and that’s what Maryland does, so I had to do it.
If you’re interested in running their Florida, Texas or Annapolis races, they’re offering 10% off today.
Oh, and they love chevron as much as I do. Deal.
How was your Monday? Are you doing any of the Zooma races? Are there any other race discount codes I should know about?
