I decided I need a run this morning. So I went looking for my running tights. Couldn't not find them and if I've lost them, I'm going to be so very unhappy as they were expensive! I found some alternate clothing and headed for the gym.
Here's the thing about running. The first bit always hurts and your mind immediately kicks in with "I'll never be able to finish this. It just impossible." If you can manage to work through that and get your mind somewhere else and not thinking about every single step you take and how you wish you'd stretched your calves a little more, you can make it through. Concentrating on what hurts will get you No.Where.Fast. I needed to be reminded of this lesson, as I'm living in my head a bit too much. Self-analysis is a good thing, but doing it to the point of paralysis is not. I do believe that thoughts begat our reality and so I've got to get a little busy and get my mind off of lather.rinse.repeat.
So I went and aired it out a bit this morning. I mistakenly thought Spin class was yesterday, but it is today, so I'll do that today. I've also begun to create an activities calendar, as I need to be a bit more busy for a while and I need to accountable. I chose The Closet specifically not to isolate and I need to hold myself to that. I'm supposed to be building a life here, not picking lint out of my navel. So, I need a little more interaction and activity for the near future. I need to continue to work my program of recovery and just get the hell on with it.
Whew - now on to more about me and what I'm wearing today. Again with the tights, turns out I love them and am happy they come in two-packs! This time with a knee length black skirt ( and the black mid-calf black bootie things from yesterday. Another white button down shirt with an orange boiled wool zip-up, collared vest. Again, I'm wearing my black Brighton belt to belt the vest and I've tied my favorite J. Crew long, narrow silky scarf in shades of orange, red, ocre and green (thifted from Princeton, NJ) in the long style described here. I did take some self-portraits last evening with yesterday's outfit, but they are unfit for print. I did learn a few things, like how to use the timer, now I just need to work on lighting and perhaps taking the photos when I'm not quite so end-of-day-Ms.-Haggle-Baggy looking.
I could find nothing free to do tonight, so I may just take in a movie.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Be Fresh.
