Today it is snowing. Yes, in April. No, this is not an April Fool’s Day joke! That Mother Nature sure is a trickster! I mean realllllly??? Isn’t March supposed to go out like a lamb??? April showers….okay, but snow? What the heck global warming…what the heck??
Despite the snow, I am so happy April is here- and that March is over. March was a good month, but it was stressful at work. Super stressful. Luckily, some of that is over now, which is also attributing to my good moods lately 🙂 But it seems as though I made the choice in 2011 to be happy, I find that I am happy!
My workouts in March were awesome- I only missed three which might actually be a new record for me. My running is progressing very well and I am continuing to see improvements in the way I look due to lifting. The only thing I would say I really need to work on, is my nutrition. I am eating like a friggen pig and on the worst possible schedule ever! Keeping up with two jobs, working out, a social life, family and a boyfriend is definitely taking some getting used to…time is so limited. Truth is, I find myself either A-eating on the run and picking at random foods or B-not eating all day and then stuffing my face at dinner on nights that I have a chance to eat. Neither of those options are going to work long-term, clearly, so I need to get on the ball. I am lucky that I am working out so much that I am not gaining, but I am not losing either! How do you eat on a busy schedule?
I won’t lie, the busy schedule is busy. And sometimes I feel like I could just lay in bed and sleep for days…but it is all worth the energy! Two jobs are exhausting but I love the money it brings in and all the things I am experiencing because I have some extra. And I wouldn’t trade the time I have with family, friends and especially R2 for anything, even if it is at times, limited. Speaking of R2…everything is still awesome with us. Last weekend we spent overnight in the city…had a fabulous and relaxed time along with an amazing dinner. I asked him permission to use his photo on my blog and lucky for all of you, he said yes (as long as he likes the photos, it isn’t all the time and I don’t use his name 🙂 Fair enough, right? ). So without further adieu, here is a picture from our dinner:
Oh and one last thing…with April…comes…BOSTON!!! I am so excited to be going to Boston and very much looking forward to bloggy meet-ups and watching all you amazing runners! We lost our Easter Break at work this year, so the long weekend get-a-way will be a nice break! Are you going to be in Boston?? Let me know!!
And lastly, a little favor- please head over to Jesse’s blog and send some thoughts and prayers to his cousin. She was unfortunately hit by a bus while riding her Tri bike in Las Vegas earlier this week. Her injuries are critical and she has a long road to recovery. I am sure Jesse and his family can use all the get well vibes they can get. ♥
