Well instead of picking one, I decided to give you The Totally Random Lowdown on my life; starting now:
We had our first snow, which is probably great news for some. I mean if you ski.... But no, even though I live within a 20 minute drive or less to some of the best ski/board resorts in the world.. I don't ski or board (way to expensive.)
The good news is, its only 16 degree's today, so it's a bit too cold to snow anymore! Bad news is, it's only 16 degrees outside!
I didn't run last week, not even a little. I should feel guilty, but I don't. It was a rough week, my energy levels were zapped because I let my iron level got too low (my fault). In fact I actually slept off the better part of two days, and frankly, I felt much better the days following so, no guilt!
I will be back to running this week, but I am not looking forward to running in the cold again. I don't know why, it's never bothered me before. But I think 2 years off racing has made me weak or something!
On another note, I need to dig out my winter clothes, and running clothes... probably right after I finish typing this!!!
Eventually it's going to get icy, and since I have some great (insert sarcasm) neighbors who don't even bother to shovel their sidewalks in the winter (karma gets them I am sure.) It's going to get too snowy/icy some days to go outside to run, which means I need to fix the treadmill.
I ran too much on it over the winters through the years I actually wore out the tread mat... $100 for a new mat, beats thousands for a new treadmill. Hopefully, that fixes it!
I sent my resume out to a few companies and I don't even know if they are hiring. But why not, I'd rather send them to a few places that might be my dream job, than apply to a few guaranteed jobs that I might not like as much... So yeah, we will see how that goes, but I have my fingers crossed that I will find a great and awesome job! I even listed my blog on one of my resume's, yup after I thought about it I realized it might even help with that one, so we will see!
I got caught up on my own blogging, only to have an exhausting week (last) to get behind on keeping up with some of my favorite bloggers. But I'm thinking now that I am feeling much, much better life might be able to get back to it's norm.
I have 2 giveaways going on. Today is the last day to enter my $25 Amazon gift card giveaway HERE. Also, my giveaway for book lovers just started over the weekend, so if your interested go ahead and enter HERE. They are both parts of giveaway hops, so on my Gift Card giveaway link, you'll also see 19 other bloggers who have amazing giveaways to enter too!
On my book giveaway their are literally over 150 bloggers participating so in other words, lots and lots of chances to win some free stuff for yourself for the Holidays!
After chatting with a friend who is going through some very hard struggles and times right now, and who is also severely depressed. I generally only offer my ear to listen, but when she kept asking how I stay happy I told her, I run. After some time she thought about it, and started working out in the mornings. She said she's been doing much better. I have to say, this made me really happy to hear! Not only that, I could clearly see a difference in her face after just her first morning workout! Just goes to show, you never know who you may be able to influence by your own life!
I don't watch much T.V. but their are a couple of shows that I do take the time to watch, because well they are quality made t.v.:) haha. Walking Dead, and I am loving it this season and of course I am still a Survivor fan, because I would seriously be an awesome contestant on that show (my dream!)
As of this morning, my car is back with the mechanic (I think it's starting to like it there, rather than at home with me, and that isn't making me happy)! Thankfully, this won't cost anything because it's still in relation to what they fixed. But I think they'll put a new mechanic on it, and hopefully he will get it figured out! One can only hope!!!
I am listening to one book on audio right now as I run. But I am not actually reading anything else right now. Which is a first for me this year, I am always reading something!
Instead I am anxiously waiting on my local library to get in a few sequels, final books in series I have been reading and waiting for, for years!
Alright, so is that is probably enough black and pink randomness for now:)
Last week, my weekly challenge was to compliment someone each day on one of their talents. This one was fun, it made me really look at others around me, and who I work with differently and see them in a different light!
This week, my challenge is a little different, I am going to go with the Act of Kindness route. This week, I am going to look for someone who is in need of help with something and help them out with it.
If you enjoy inspirational challenges for yourself, I challenge you to do this too!
Doing something for someone else, may not seem like much, but to someone else it might mean the world, so why not!
So tell me some total randomness on your own life!
