Happy Solstice.



I realize it was yesterday, but honestly. I was not at my keyboard.

Welcome winter and the return of light.
The sun begins waxing and so does our lives.
As always, I begin making goals and pathways for my future on Solstice night.


May your pathways to the future and your goals take you where you need to go in 2007 as the sun grows brighter and your potential explodes like a vibrant star itself.


"Every man and every woman is a star."


I’m not sure what happened to my LJ posting. Or my other-blog postings.
I just stopped in the last week or so. The power went out. I started working more at work or something?

I know, there were still a few here and there. But nothing like what I’ve been known to post in the past. Today I’m just going to write for the sake of writing. It isn’t altogether busy at the office, although I have a few tasks to keep me busy in the middle of the day.
I plan to clean my house on lunch.

I plan to go running before I go Joshua’s Yule Party.
Last night was pretty uneventful for one of my favorite holidays. I went running in the cold and rain and then I watched season one GG and then went to bed and read.
The end of the evening was filled with a pleasant before-bed phone call.

I decided my cold has left and I can resume my previous exercise schedule. It was hard for me to stop, but I realized that if I didn’t – the cold wouldn’t leave me.

I’m excited for the end-of-year paycheck. As I treat I will probably get an IPOD Shuffle for ease of using the IPOD whilst running. I feel bad about bringing my IPOD video everywhere with me sometimes. I get the idea it will last longer and be easier to take around if it were tiny. The 1G shuffle is a tiny square with a self-clip on it. It means I can just clip it to my coat and go. This winter running is something else. I felt a deeper connection to the beginning of winter with the rain running all over my body and the air visible in front of me. Clouds of my breath reminding me about the elements of air and the rain my ritualistic element of water.

Fire in the heat of my home when I came home; and earth as I stepped on mushy mud.
The hot shower was great.

I’m upset because I could do double the pushups drunk.
This is bullshit.
I’ve got to stay on this. I’ve been sluffing it because of this cold and maybe because my guy has been around my house. I’ll be pushing myself more after I clean my house and pretty much from here on out. I need to start with the ab workouts and the pushups on top of my running. If I get brave when Mel comes back to town I could maybe even get some gym dates with her. I have a feeling she could help me tone and weight-lift. I love that girl anyway and I think we could get along in the gym. Girl-talk has the potential to making workouts easier with weight-lifting. I hate lifting and maybe this could cause me to enjoy it more. Swimming will also play into this. I think swimming is the entire reason I have such dense arm muscles at the moment anyway – although I’ve always had a natural sturdy bicep dosage.

Sometimes I wonder about my career. I’m trying to relax. I let a lot of stress play into things earlier this month and I’m done with that. No matter what I know if I have this ambition behind me, I can stay happy. I wasn’t happy when I had nothing to work for. Now I’ve got everything to work for. And although my day job isn’t the best – the salary and benefits are way too good to ignore. I am in the perfect situation for me to ramp up my body. It stopped being about my shape and more about my performance. Ever since I began running I have had an enhanced sense of confidence anyway. I may not be fast, but I know I have a certain level of endurance. And with any luck I can improve my speed as the months pass. I’m not sure what I will do when hiking season comes. I may start slowly trying to run up hills if that’s possible. We’ll see how my body takes that. I know Judy’s husband does it. Wouldn’t it be awesome if I could get that much better? Omgs.

I dream of being able to do 40 pushups and run up hills.

Ah, anything is possible! Give me enough time and maybe one day I can do that. Well, at least 30 pushups would be nice. But I’m at 5. Or maybe 10 drunk.

I need to try harder, push harder, work my arms more.
At least my form was good even when I was drunk.

The only failure I could possibly make is not trying at all.
Maybe I’m insane.
Coffee and a tornado from the gas station.
Cheap thrills.

First day of winter and it feels nippy and freezing.
I look stupid when I walk hunched over like I do when I’m cold.
So sad.


Anyhow. Mom is online and I am chatting with her so my useless dribble comes to a temporary end.

Get in shape and kick ass! That can be a resolution for you for 2007.

This is a good time to get out and take walks; I try to get out and take a walk at lunchtime because I get to work before sunrise and leave after sunset, and otherwise I'm not getting any sunlight.

Hmmm

I don't like associating it like a lot of folks do with New Years...

:X
Does that make me evil? hehee.
I guess it's because I make so many of these things all year long. :D
I hate to define it along a timeline.
Or maybe I'm just silly :D

But yeah. It's a career related fitness goal! Wahoo.

No, but you need fitness to be human. The way we both sit around at a desk all day, we *need* to take extra effort outside of work to stay in shape.

Yeah! I am amazed at how many people forget that they sit in a desk too much and do it at home too.

But then I'm a restless lady so...
I turn bitchy if I don't get out to exercise.
And people are like why are you soooo restlessssss....

ahaha. I have to get it out somehow.
