Yesterday, D and I met a friend for lunch at my favorite brewery, I bet you’ll never guess which one! San Tan Brewing Co! Even though I always order the same beer, Hop Shock I.P.A., I often switch up what I order to eat. I love that about this place…and it’s about the only place I eat where I don’t eat the same exact thing every time! Awesome!
Yesterday, I had the Turkey Pasta Salad and it was really good!
But like I said, I haven’t had anything here that I don’t like!
Last night, friends of ours came over for a swim. It was a good time with great friends and a nice distraction from thinking too much!
I was feeling pretty low this morning. Seems this unemployment stuff is an emotional roller coaster. Yesterday, I felt pretty good. This morning, I felt bad again and sulked for awhile playing the, “Should have, would have, could have” game. That was annoying! What good is all that going to do me?! Last I checked, I don’t have a “way back” machine so games like that are pointless!
Annoyed with myself and not wanting to hear it from me any more, I dressed for my run. I’m not pulling the normal running routine this week but I am sticking to the 1 mile a day game!
Running often clears my head. For short runs, there’s not a lot of time to think about a lot other than your form, pace, debris in your way, etc. As I was running along in the bike lane, I was thinking about how much stress I have left out there on the pavement over the past 2 years! (I started running in August 2010 because I was under a lot of stress and worried it was going to really affect my health.) So here I was, again, purposely running to burn off some stress. Then I found myself feeling thankful that I have running to help me cope with stress and clear my head. Even though my run was short, I made the decision that it’s time for me to play the Glad Game!
- I’m glad I have running!
- I’m glad I have connections that may help me.
- I’m glad I have a half marathon coming up to look forward to.
- I’m glad I have the love and support of all my friends and family.
- I’m glad we are healthy.
After all, nobody likes a Negative Nancy – and I don’t like Negative Nancy living in my head! She’s so fired!
How is your Saturday going?
