Thinking Out Loud

Today I am linking up with Amanda from Running with Spoons. Here are my random thoughts for this week:

Grateful for work friends: Yesterday at work I worked in a different unit. I hadn't gone to this unit in almost two years. When I walked in, I was greeted with smiles and feeling! I was updated on the latest gossip in the unit and just had a great time. By the end of the day even one of the nurses called my work cell phone to tell me how great it was to work together again. It just made my day and made me appreciate the wonderful work friends I have accumulated here in the past six years.

Flowers: I love flowers. I went to Costco today and I just had to buy a bouquet. They were just calling my name. Nothing better than having a bad day, walking into your house and seeing a gorgeous bouquet to just brighten up your day.

Sunrises: I love sunrises and every time I see a good one I try to take a picture of it. Some of my favorite ones are actually from my trip to Nepal earlier this year. Waking up early and seeing the sunrises over the Himalayan mountains were absolutely breath taking.

Fall is finally here: I just love this time of the year and I am so happy it decided to finally arrive. Where I live though, fall does not last long. Winter will get here before I know it. But in the mean time I am enjoying the cooler weather and changing colors. I love running in this weather because I can still run in capris or shorts and just wear a long sleeved shirt. 

Foot pain: I just got my customized orthotics this week and so far running in them is painful. I can wear them in regular shoes but I can't seem to tolerate them while I run. I have two blisters from just running three miles! I am wondering if they are either completely changing my footing or if they are really not a good fit for me. To be honest the right foot hurts more than the left now.  I cheated today and ran four miles in my old inserts and was pain free. So now I am wondering if maybe I just need orthotics with my regular shoes and not my running shoes. Something to definitely discuss with my podiatrist for my follow-up appointment.

Banana bread: I attempted to make banana bread this week but I wasn't happy with my end result. I decided to change it up by not using oil and adding apple sauce and greek yogurt in the ingredients. My husband liked it but I wasn't 100% sold. I felt it was just a little too moist for my liking. So now I am in a mission to perfect this recipe! I bought a bunch of bananas and hoping to make some more bread next week. 

Fabletics: I recently signed up for the VIP program for Fabletics. I just received my first shipment and can't wait to try it. So tomorrow at the gym I'll be rocking a new workout outfit.  I hope all the reviews are right and I'll love the clothes. My husband looked at them and his reaction was, "But they aren't name brand?" Apparently in his eyes I should only workout in name brand clothes.  I'm a pretty savvy shopper with my clothes and hardly ever get anything full price. So my name brand clothes that I do have are either purchased with coupons or bought at Marshal's, Burlington, Ross, or TJ Max.

The first man I ever loved and continue to love: My father is the rock of our family. He has worked so hard in order for our family to always have a roof over our heads. I remember as a child he would miss so many of my events. I didn't understand why he was always working. Now as I am older, I see how much he provided for us. I work hard in order to show him that I am who I am because of him. He set a great example and I honor all the life lessons he has taught me. Don't know what I would do without this man.
