as this year comes to a close i am always amazed at what transpired in just short 12 months. idk if anyone else sees things like this, perhaps everyone does, but when i think about the future it seems so close - like when i think i only have 2 years to finish school and everything...but when i think back 2 years it seems like eons have passed. its weird
tomorrow is 1/1/11 - pretty cool. but today i have to work - yuck. off monday - backwards if you ask me...we should have off today and work monday.
anyway, i got up this morning and thought since it rather nice outside and since i didnt get to go outside yesterday when it was 70 degrees!!!! i decided to go for a jog before the next cold front comes in this afternoon and drops our temp down to 17...yeah, our weather is crzy like that.
it was beautiful - wore shorts and a sweatshirt and got pretty toasty. ive figured out that i can jog about 1x/ week and my knees dont hurt that bad. plus i have really been hammering out the jillian michaels dvd workout - it has a lot of plank exercises in it and it makes your abs scream. i read somewhere that if you strengthen your core that in turn helps with knee pain...so ive been doing core work for a few months and think it is helping...still have a long way to go though. ive neglected my core pretty much my entire life - i absolutely hate working my abs. ive always been a jogger and until my knees started hurting i didnt have to think about it much. maybe soon i will have a stomach i can be proud to show.
happy new years everyone! here is to making 2011 OUR year to reach all the goals we set for ourself.
