spice it up
How are ya?
I hope your Monday wasn’t too hectic.
This morning was my first attempt back at running since last week’s “injury.” I was a little nervous. I wasn’t quite sure how my body would react so I decided to approach this run with a level head by working on my form and if something started to hurt then I would just stop.
The first mile and a half was slow, but I didn’t care. It felt fantastic to move and to feel those endorphins working. I stopped and stretched at the halfway point just to make sure I wasn’t making things worse. After my faux doctor diagnosis, all systems were a go!
I finished the last mile and half with a slight smirk. Even though I am still not a 100%, it felt great to move and get my day started on the right foot. Right? Right.
Okay, on to the good stuff.
First up, today’s outfit.
Today’s outfit is brought to you by Mr. Market. Holy bat balls! What the heck happened today? Geesh. The Dow Industrial Average fell 634 points! OMG. Brace yourself folks, things could get a little bumpy.
In case of an emergency, the exit’s are here.
I actually tried to mimic the hand gestures, but trying to do that with one hand is pretty hard. Plus, I thought someone was coming into the bathroom. I will do better next time:)
Other then the crazy market and it’s red line of death, I did manage to find some positive highlights in my work day.
1. ) Books! While on our run/jog on Saturday, Listy was telling me about this book called, The Secret Language of Birthdays: Personalogy Profiles for Each Day of the Year, written by Gary Goldschneider and Joost Elffers (what kind of a name is Joost?). Her co-worker brought the book into work and thought it would be fun to look up everyone birthday profiles. Well, Listy emailed me my quick profile today.
Let me know what you think (February 25th):
2.) Cookies! My co-worker Brian just got back from France last Thursday and brought back some cookies from Bordeaux. Sadly, he forgot the wine, but the cookies were a huge hit!
