Last night, Mark and I went to the mall. We were hungry, so we stopped at California Pizza Kitchen. I got the Pear & Gorgonzola pie.
It was ok – Mark’s Chipotle Chicken was really good though. While at said mall, I purchased a running skirt:
I gave it a shot today. I didn’t like that it rode up in the back. It also wasn’t that “light” – the shorts are kind of thick and made me feel hot. Other than that, it was comfortable and it has a pocket on the butt. Handy. Speaking of running, today didn’t go well. It was raining and thundering outside this morning, so I went on the treadmill. I really was not feeling it once I got on. After 2 miles, I didn’t want to go another step so I got off. I’ve been unhappy with my training for the half marathon. I keep debating whether I should pull out. I’m undertrained, undermotivated, and dreading the half. My husband thinks I should just run it. I’ve been fantasizing about not doing it. I don’t know what I’m going to do yet.
In happier news, I got a great salad at Sweet Tomatoes this afternoon.
I had a few courses after this salad. Buffets for lunch are trouble. Well, buffets period are trouble. Later on, I got started on my clothes project:
Yesterday I complained that my clothes are scattered in 6 places in the house. I went around and gathered my clothes and threw them all onto the bed. That’s right, every article of clothing is on my bed in this picture. From every closet, every bin in the basement, every drawer in my dresser.
It was hard to let go of some things. I created several keep piles according to the type of clothing, and one pile for “definitely get rid of” and “think about”. I highly recommend the “think about” pile when you’re just not ready to let go. On the second pass, it’s easier to make a decision.
I found a couple of cool t-shirts:
The one on the right is a keeper (I lived in Okinawa when my dad was in the Navy and would have been 2 when we got this t-shirt… which actually belongs to my mom) and the one on the left is getting donated.
I got 2 trash bags to donate. I even have space in some of my drawers!
My half of the closet. It’s not much space and this is why I have clothes all over the house.
I didn’t feel like much for dinner after the big lunch, so I just made some baby food.
I mean, pumpkin dip. (I didn’t use OJ, just maple syrup and brown sugar.) Looks gross but tastes delicious!
I made a lot of progress on my secret projects this weekend. That, plus the closet clean out, and I’m feeling very accomplished. Bring it, Monday.
