Rambling About My Lack of Exercise

I was going to exercise this morning after I had breakfast…but now I just want to crawl back into bed and take a nap.

At least I had yogurt and an apple for breakfast. I figure if I just eat healthier I’ll stop feeling so tired. I’m trying to either walk an hour a day or do some kind of cardio exercise. I put on weight before Christmas, since I’m living by myself now and I don’t have my mom asking me if I wanna go for a run…and my school closed the track for the winter.

I’m not a big gym person honestly. I prefer doing my workout, outdoors. I like running trails if I can but since I’m not familiar with the trails here I ran around the school track. It’s nice and big anyway, and you can see the forest from there. In the fall it was really great. The scenery here is beautiful.

I just want to stop feeling so tired. I’ve got a headache today probably because I haven’t been taking very good care of myself in the last couple of months. The last time I went out for a run was when it was pouring rain. People must’ve thought I was nuts to be out in that weather…but I got up and dressed without checking the weather outside. Once I opened the front door I decided to throw on a sweatshirt and go out anyway. I had the mindset that I was going to exercise that morning, and that’s exactly what I did. I was in the rain for about three hours though. That wasn’t my smartest decision. It was fun though…running around in the rain, listening to music.

I really need to get that mindset again. I suppose I could do those mall walks like my mom’s been doing, but I’d rather not bus to the mall in this weather. I don’t want to get stuck somewhere and have to call a cab.

Perhaps I could walk outside in the snow on campus? Might as well. It’ll give me an excuse to go find my new class. I just have to be careful of any ice.

I seriously wish I brought my weights with me. I keep forgetting them at home…but I barely use them anymore, now that I’m not doing sports. My dad bought them for me when I was fifteen because I was playing travel soccer and needed to build on my upper body strength. I used to have muscles…now they’re like well not as toned muscles. At the moment I’ve only got to lose like 15lbs which isn’t a big deal. The only thing that’s stopping me from doing so is myself. I should just wake up everyday with this, “I’m going to exercise” attitude.

Least for now I’m eating a lot better. Having my fruits and veggies. I feel a lot better when I’m eating yogurt than when I’m eating chips, that’s for sure.

Well this post has nothing to do with writing but…I mean when my body doesn’t feel good then it sure is hard for me to focus on other things. I think I need to take some advil or something. I thought if I ate my headache would go away. Maybe I need some water? Oh well….it’ll go away eventually.

Enjoy your week everyone!

Writing and Life Update

Wow this weeks just been flying by. I can’t believe it’s almost Friday!

I’ve gotten a couple of projects on the go, which is fantastic. I started getting into serious script writing. I’m really enjoying it. It’s different from writing novels and poetry but it’s just as fun.

As for my novel I’m working on it still. Planning out some minor details. It’s been fun. It really has. I mean, it’s almost like doing homework for school but this is the kind of homework that I enjoy.

I might start posting a short story that I wrote a while back just…I don’t know. I found it the other day and thought, “With a little editing here and there this could be a good story.” So I’ll be working on making it more presentable. The version I found was a draft. I haven’t received any feedback on it…so I’ll probably end up showing it to my sister first. She’s an honest kid.

I’m not sure how much work I’ll get done with my niece over though. She’s currently taking her nap so I have time to relax until she wakes up.

She’s a funny little girl. We spent all morning playing outside with my brother and my mom.

It’s great being back home with my folks. They really give me the drive I need to work.

Speaking of work, I’m starting that soon. I’m excited…very, very, very excited.

Actually my dad is more excited than I am.

Our family needs to do a lot of…nice happy things right now. We’ve got a lot going on…. but I’m just going to stay strong and be positive. I’m happy that I finally got hired by someone, that just takes some weight off my dad. Plus having my niece over should keep everyone in good spirits.

I find that if you’re feeling down, its best to go outside and get some fresh air. Exercise is amazing…it does a lot for your mind and body. I like to run. Since I’ve gotten back into running I’ve been feeling like my usual self. I’m writing music and poetry, working on my novels and joking around with my sister.

Happy Thursday!

P.S. do not drive your Barbie’s off a steep cliff (the porch) or they might flip upside down and lose their tiara’s.


That featured image was drawn by moi. Isn’t it awesome? I was like, “Mom look at my beautiful picture of an alien with a gun!” and my mom gave me that “Are you for real?” look and then I just walked away…

I bet my niece would like it…the alien is a villain in my story. Yah….okay bye!
