Running = JOY

No CrossFit for me today. A lot of members are competing this weekend, so gym was CLOSED. But it’s all good, because there is always….ALWAYS the DREADmill! So, I squeezed in a quickie before dinner. I wasn’t killing any records, but it made me happy to run!

#schWING
That was fun!

Since coming off the hiatus and getting (slowly) back to running, I feel like I am falling in love all over again!! I have a new feeling for running; because you never really know HOW much you miss something until someone/something tells you “you can’t”!!! I found my joy of running hadn’t faded.

I try not to focus in the number. You know…”time”, “PRs”, “paces”. I just try to FEEL when I run- patience, healing, prayer,happiness,love….

I like having that back!!!

Rest day tomorrow because I’m going to run a 5K on Saturday.
SN: my butt STILL hasn’t swam yet! My race is 3 weeks away! You think I should….??ūüėČ
There is always next week!

How was your day?
Where did YOU find your joy today?

Fat Tuesday…”en Fran√ßais clase??” MARDI GRAS!!

I hope everyone had a great day and is ready for the Mardi Gras version of WILT! (What I Love Tuesday)

1. Emily Ley
If you are a stationery FREAK like me, you will absolutely die for her items. She has cards, notebooks, an assortment of inserts, free printables, and my all time favorites….PLANNERS!! Her Simplified Planner is the hottest item. It’s for people like you ME that need all the time management help that’s available! All that help…in an absolutely ADORABLE package!!

Dig those double under bruises on my leg!! HOT!!

3. Rock My Run
This app is the S**T!! You can pick the genre of music you like and it will select from its library, mixes by internationally known DJs. You log in, pick your style, download your mixes, and RUN! Best part….FREE! You can get a monthly or yearly subscription which allows for unlimited streaming of mixes. (I imagine it’s similar to Pandora regarding how much you can fast forward songs,etc). I’m still figuring it out, so keep you posted on the deal with the moola!

Just a little sneak peek into my AWESOME mix! Helped me on the DREADmill, fo’ sho!!!

4. “Happy” by Pharell Williams
This song absolutely, positively, without a doubt makes me HAPPY! If you saw “Despicable Me 2”, you’ll recognize it! If you’ve seen the “Beats Pill” commercial with the dancing speakers, you’ll remember it! Found out it was nominated for an Oscar, and if you watched it, you know this song! If you don’t remember any of these scenarios, do yourself a favor and go to iTunes and LISTEN! You won’t be sorry and you couldn’t possibly be in a bad mood afterwards.

5. Chips
Every year, I give up chips for Lent. No tortilla, potato, etc. No Cheetos or anything of the like! It’s always hard because they are at work… I don’t buy them for myself at home! Whew…..
Wish me luck…

Well another one bites the dust! I’m finding it less and less difficult to find things I love…! I could have a DAILY LOVE‚̧ԳŹ
Hmmmmm…..

Hope you got plenty of beads this Mardi Gras. And I hope you don’t have to go to confession before Ash Wednesday Mass to confess HOW you got ’em!!
