I feel like lately I have been super whiny on some of my recent entries. I hate being like that because it’s just not the kind of person I remember being. But, I’m trying to hang in there. Yesterday was probably one of the first days I felt mostly okay for the majority of the day. I still didn’t sleep well last night, but I’m getting used to the idea that that will likely be the case until I move into my new apartment. I know this doesn’t exactly fit the mold of a “healthy, influential person,” but if talking about this makes someone else want to go get better, too, then I’ll keep being open about it (thanks for the responses on my previous posts, it REALLY means a ton to me, really).
I’ve managed to stick to the Runner’s World Run Streak for three days now. On Tuesday, I went to the gym (for the first time in for-ev-er) and knocked out a quick two miles on the treadmill in about 17:10. Yesterday, I got home from work and felt totally zonked. I took a 45 min nap, debated calling quits on the streak, then kicked my ass out of bed and put on my running shoes. I ended up doing a small loop through the town.
Not too shabby. I felt totally sweaty and definitely had major tomato face going on, but I did it!
Tres! My forehead is huge and shiny in this pic. Sweat 1 – Krissie 0.
I was kind of happy Scott decided to take dinner duty because I was so not interested in making anything, not even ramen noodles. He’s quite the master of marinades and I wish I had him at least write down ingredients (he never measures anything) before I move out and have to re-create my own grilling recipes (yes, we’re still living together at the moment… we’re not on bad terms).
Marinated salmon on the grill, spinach salad, and steamed veggies. I paired it with a Summer Love, of course. ;)
While speculating the turns my life is taking, I was browsing through my old Deviantart account and tweeted this pic.
I don’t even think I can come remotely close to drawing like that right now, but looking at it makes me really want to get back into it. I uploaded a bunch of pics to facebook that I had scanned way back in the day (I think the last time I really drew was in 2008 or 2009, but consistently we’re talking 2005). Hopefully with my new space (15 days until I get my keys) I can set up a good space to get more creative.
So in conclusion, I still feel crazy, I miss drawing, and running feels good but still isn’t fixing my mood swings.
