Fangirls, I’m torn up about this app. On one hand, it’s phenomenal. On the other, it doesn’t work super well with indoor movement, and that’s tough. But lets get to the down and dirty of Charity Miles.
I think the whole “new year, new me” trend is a bit hilarious, but if a clean start is the best way for you to get yourself on track, then do it. Hell, it’s what me and the boyfriend are doing! We’ve started watching what we eat, and I’ve been getting up even earlier to exercise daily, but I’m going to talk more about that tomorrow.
I visited my family in New York this week, and it was quite wonderful, but also frustrating. My depression has been worsening and it makes finding a place that feels like home seem impossible; I feel like since I’ve moved out, me being back is a hassle to my family, especially since my grandmother is staying there, and tat makes for a pretty full house. But at the same time, I don’t feel very at home in Maryland either. I feel like everyone that has done anything there to help out is doing so because they are friends with Rob, and want him to be happy, not because of me.
I know that journals usually happen on Fridays, but this past Friday was my birthday. I struggle pretty hard with birthdays; I tend to not feel like I’ve accomplished as much as others my age, and that gives me a lot of anxiety. I have had birthdays where I couldn’t leave my room because I was so overwhelmed. It seems like my worst birthdays are milestone birthdays, and luckily 24 isn’t that much of a milestone (unlike 16, where you’re *supposed to* get your permit, or 18 where you’re legal, or even 21 when you can purchase and consume alcohol). I did pretty okay for most of Friday, and I think it’s because I’m very lucky to have kind and understanding people in my life.
Fangirls, about a week ago, Ross (the captain of #TeamNotFat) suggested a new run-tracking app to me. Runkeeper is a rad app that tracks your time and mileage and helps socialize your run.
Fangirls, tomorrow I run my first 5k in over 10 years. I am terrified in every way possible.
Fangirls, are you sick of me talking about fitness? I’m fairly certain that everyone on my twitter feed is. Today was the second day I used the Couch to 5K app, and I’m feeling so good about it, that I’m already raving to all of my coworkers about it, so I figured I give you ladies (and gents) my thoughts as well!
