About this time of year, I find myself itching to get a bit more active again. I'll even brave the cold weather a bit more than I would in say, January. I think it's because I know that spring is on the horizon, and any day now I'll start pulling out all my cute summery tops that I know and love.
In an effort to not be a crazy cat lady this Valentine's Day, I went to a small party at a somewhat old and somewhat new friend's pad. I sort of knew this gal in college, but we never really hung out much before. I appreciate the invite to her party and, even though I knew I wouldn't know anyone there really well, I put on some cute clothes and headed out there.
I had a blast. There was nothing in particular that made it super exciting. There was pizza and beverages and music and Wii and laughter and catching up. You get my jist. It was a comfortable evening. I left feeling a new sense of energy about connecting with people that I hadn't felt in a while. It felt good.
All in all, I had a pretty nice weekend. I got to spend some time with some other friends as well as relax a bit. I ventured out on Sunday for the yoga class at the Y, where the teacher may or may not have been flirting with me. I have a hard time telling sometimes whether a guy is flirting or just being polite. I wasn't sure what I was in for when I saw him walking up (I'm rarely approached by guys at the gym), and I was really uncertain when he opened with, "I'm going to go out on a limb here..." and a dramatic pause. The rest of the sentence was a simple "you're here for yoga, aren't you?" (My yoga mat may have been the big clue on this one.)
After about five minutes, he worked it into the conversation that he was teaching the class. I was absolutely clueless. I've never been when he's been teaching before. By that point, I decided he was just being friendly to a student. Even so, it's probably the biggest conversation I've had at the gym in months... (of course, there was at least one month I didn't go anyways.)
Today was a busy day at work (we don't get President's Day off), but the boss took me to Red Lobster. I LOVE those cheese biscuits.
I also worked in another run. This time I walked 2 minutes, ran 10 minutes, and then repeated it twice more. I know I'll bounce back sooner rather than later, but my lungs are definitely still killing me. And sometimes my left leg feels like a separate entity. Other than that, things are going well.
Hope everyone had a terrific weekend! I've got some fun things going on this week. There's certainly much to be happy about today.
