i'm not sweating, i'm sparkling
i'm so proud of myself.
i spent the whole day talking myself out of going to the workout tonight, sans a small moment of anti-weakness when i hopped back to the house for my workout clothes.
last night, before i went to work, once i got to work, once i left work, once i got to the bookstore, as i was leaving the bookstore.. at each point, i had 10 reasons to not go tonight. but, i was already nearly at
the beach, so i went ahead and just DID IT. yay! :)
good workout. afterwards, i had 20 minutes left on the meter, so i went for a 20-minute run, including a sad, whimpery part when i tried to run in the sand. i wouldn't call any of it running, to be honest. slow-paced jog is more like it. wouldn't win a race against anyone but this guy.
or maybe the head detective.
regardless, by the time i got back to the car, i was absolutely drenched. i am always filled with such pride when i work up a good sweat, not sure why. maybe because i was 25 by the time i realized i could
sweat like that.
so anyway, that was my night. bookstore, where i could not find what i wanted, dammit. workout. stray-cat feedin'. home. dinner.
oh, btw, it's now two years to the day since i found kitten.
i meant to buy her some shrimp in celebration, but in my busy schedule forgot. i was so disappointed with myself. but too tired to go back out, so instead she got some wet beef cat food with golean cereal mixed in (she really likes it, oddly; she chases me around if i eat it) and catnip as a garnish.
wasn't she just adorable? :)
amanda is 13 in 10 days. i had a nice thought tonight that maybe someday she'll come visit me. heck, she could even spend part of her summer here. snorkeling, someday learning to dive.. coming out sailing. i would love to introduce her to all of that. someday kyle and macy can come visit, too, but by the time that rolls around, i'm going to be clueless old aunt stacey. they'll probably like that, though; they'll be able to get away with so much more. :)
