See how I rhymed in the title of this post? I’m hilarious 😉 A cloud has been hanging over my head this entire week, despite the fact that some AWESOME things happened. I’m really excited to tell you about them once I iron out some details (it could be a little while, though). The weather has been pretty grey, which always makes me sleepy and Tuesday’s events left a bad taste in my mouth. More importantly, I thought my Fitbit broke yesterday!
Look at that sad, blank screen 🙁 I saw my dead Fitbit immediately after I finished a 3 mile run yesterday morning and may have shed a tear or two. Just kidding, but I almost really did cry. That’s AT LEAST 7,000 uncounted steps. Plus, I thought my Fitbit was completely broken and would never work again (I can be a bit of a drama queen when my stuff stops working). Sara is my go-to girl for advice on electronics and social media (she helped me get this blog self-hosted and everything!). Sara told me the battery probably just died. It turns out that Sara was right. I truly thought my Fitbit completely died because I only put in its old battery a month ago. The battery is supposed to last 4 months. So, I’m grateful that my Fitbit still works. Again, I’m a drama queen with major first world problems, but whatever 🙂 I’m grateful that Andy and I had an awesome Valentine’s Day. I’m grateful to have such a full schedule. My free time is dwindling lately and it’s been really tough to write here/comment on other blogs. I was going to complain about this, but having so much to do can be super exciting. It means I have something to live for – what’s so bad about that? 🙂 I’m grateful that the weather is slowly getting warmer. We had a 40 degree day this week and it made me so happy. Hell, I’ll take a 30 degree day at this rate! I’m even grateful that the snow was only an inch or two and easy to clean off my car this morning.
I’m grateful for my motivation to run. If you’ve read my posts about Shamrock Shuffle training , then you’ll notice that I’m not running very many miles and only 3 times per week. This is because I haven’t run 3 times per week in 1.5 years. Honestly, it’s all about personal progress – not being an elite runner. SO, basically, I’m proud of myself 🙂 I’m grateful for making serious progress in my internship search this week. I definitely reached a milestone – I actually feel like I’m getting somewhere. Woohoo! I’m grateful for my dad. It was his birthday yesterday 🙂 I’m so lucky to have such an amazing dad who is always there for me. I’m grateful that my boss brought us breakfast today.
I’m grateful for my volunteer work. This one has been on a previous Gratitude List, but still… I love the volunteer work that I do and always leave with a grin on my face. I work with a woman who has disabilities; we paint pictures together and have the best time. I might have to stop volunteering next Fall when I start my internship, so I’m trying to enjoy every last minute! I’m grateful to be off work this entire weekend. I can’t wait to relax and check some pesky items off my to-do list. TGIF!
