Breaking Bad, Chilly Morning, and a Fall Dress
Last night my husband and I watched the latest episode of Breaking Bad. If you don’t watch then you won’t understand why I’m feeling so heartbroken after watching this episode. It was just such a mess of emotions, but yet at the same time definitely the best episode of the series. Everything culminated into a glorious disaster and I find myself so sad for the characters. Isn’t it just bizarre how a TV show can suck you in like that? Don’t worry, I’ll get over it quickly, but right now it’s so fresh in my mind. Did you watch it? Are you a fan?
Moving onto the next topic. I’m wearing my I-love-autumn-dress to work today and loving it. I bought this dress from Loft last year and it’s honestly one of my favorite pieces of clothing I own. I can’t wear it too often because it’s definitely memorable, but it is comfortable, pretty, and I love all the colors! And really the work day is just better when you like your outfit ;)
Did I mention I’m still reeling from that Breaking Bad episode? Anyways, I got in a nice walk/run with the pups this morning. It was 37 degrees out! I actually wore gloves and the cool air felt fantastic. I have officially settled on the fact that I will not be running the marathon this weekend. It’s sad for me because of the months of training and the excitement that has been building since May to achieve this goal. But there will be other races. Maybe even a marathon, half marathon, or 15K in October. This one just wasn’t meant to be. I acquired more IT band exercises at PT yesterday which is great though and I’ve become a pro at foam rolling. I’m still waiting for my Tracy Anderson workout video to come in the mail and as it soon as it does, let that challenge begin. I want to get stronger and leaner!
This morning as I was out with the pups I was thinking about how taking pleasure from the little things each day is really important. For example, I would have loved (x million) to go on a glorious run this morning, but instead I went on a fantastic walk with my dogs (who were so happy and excited). That is something to be grateful for. Also, I made myself a huge latte to drink as I go to work on this chilly morning. Another simple pleasure.
I want to make gluten-free vegan cupcakes soon! I’ve made boatloads of vegan cupcakes, but now I want to perfect a gluten-free one as well. I have family members who follow a gluten-free diet and if I can just pull off a vegan/gluten-free cupcake (decorated Halloween like) that will be awesome.
If you are a Breaking Bad fan, how are you feeling after the last episode? What’s something you look forward to each morning?
