Admitting that I am battling moderate depression felt really good in a weird sort of way. It’s a weight off your shoulders once it is out in the open, and you realize that people don’t think you’re as crazy as you were expecting. But, let’s not dwell on that any further. I would like to thank everyone for the support, it does mean a whole lot to me. This is going to be a wordy post, so follow the jump to read on if you wish. :)
Yoga happened on Wednesday evening and it was glorious. Leaving the studio feeling happy and sweaty is well worth the investment I made on that 3-month pass. I’ve already scheduled four visits for next week as well. Another thing that happened? A run. I didn’t do the five mile tempo as planned and instead just strapped on the Garmin and ran 2.5 miles in about 21:07. The run wasn’t terribly inspiring or fun, but I got out there and did it. I also managed to whip dinner together last minute.
I’m going to admit that I cheated and used a sauce packet instead of making the pesto from scratch. Time savers, people, I need them. I felt beat at 10pm and hoped the last two days of workouts would really help me stay asleep. It’s a problem I’ve been having for months and it’s driving me nuts. Sadly, I woke up around midnight and couldn’t get back to sleep til around 4:30amish. Ugh. A lot of this is happening today.
Where would I be without caffeine?! Asleep on my desk, and in trouble, most likely. Here’s to it being Friday! Did this week take forever or what? And anyone off today, KISS IT! Just kidding. I envy you though. <3
Hi there, internet land. It’s been quite a bit since I last posted on here. I figured maybe a bit of an update on things was due, and also to show I haven’t totally abandoned the world of blogging just yet. The past month or so has been… interesting. I’ve been experiencing some very unnerving emotions and entered into the last year of my 20s. I took it pretty hard, not necessarily because I am “omg getting old,” but mainly due to feeling pretty overwhelmed in general and unsure of what I should be doing with my life. Work-wise I am feeling okay, but everything else just feels so up in the air. I’m not trying to sound whiny, but it’s difficult to make decisions when you feel any one could lead you down a totally different path than you planned to take. So, that’s been my personal life. I’m working on sorting it all out and hoping as the weeks go by more and more clarity comes my way. Fingers crossed?
Fitness-wise, it was ages since I had run, set foot in a gym, did pretty much anything. This weekend I finally let myself venture back into some old habits and ran the Phillies 5K. I wasn’t expecting much with the time off, but happily clocked in at 26:49. Not my best, but certainly not my worst. We also got these nifty finisher medals (kind of weird for a 5K, but cool nonethless).
I also got a pair of tickets to the On Deck Series game against the Pirates tomorrow night. I cannot wait for baseball season to officially start! I skipped the cooldown run on the field (sad face) and booked it over to Fairmount Park in order to make the first game of my co-ed soccer season. My team is pretty much made of up people that have never played together before. I was nervous since it has been many years since I played and I wasn’t sure how we’d all click together. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I have made this year. I got right back into it and loved being back on defense again. I had a gnarly block when our goalie got away from the goal and it’s resulted in an even gnarlier bruise. Trust me, it is UG-LY! We ended up with a tie which was pretty good considering we were the house team. After the game (they’re only an hour long), I got recruited along with another girl from my team to play another game where the team was short on females. I figured why not and we ended up with a win! I am so excited for the next game and got home dirty, happy, and physically beat.
Dirty cleats = a happy Krissie. After showering off, I ventured to my friend’s house to hang out and have dinner. We went for sushi which was perfect, especially since the place was BYOB. Today I had planned to start on my birthday gift to myself and attend a class at Hotbox Yoga. Unfortunately, I cancelled since my muscles are just too sore today and I’d rather not overdo it. I’ll be heading on Wednesday. I decided that to help me sort of get back to myself, I’d get more into regular yoga and picked up their 90-day unlimited pass. Instead of downward dogging my Sunday, I’m lounging watching HGTV and being periodically covered in cats.
Could be worse.
