Finishing goals

Last week i jogged/walked 15 miles. This week I’m less than halfway there but am intent on finishing the week strong, no matter what it takes.

There’s something beautiful about finishing a goal, even if it’s just one. Setting out to complete something and accomplishing it completely shifts my mindset into one of success. With one success comes another, and soon enough there’s a snowball effect of successes.

This is why finishing those 15 miles this week means so much to me. If i can get this together and meet my running goals, everything else will slowly start falling into place. Running away can actually make the rest of your problems disappear.


Happy Valentine’s Day!

V-day is one of my favorite holidays.I love the visually stunning aspect of all things red, pink, heart-shaped,ruffly, and full of flowers. It so beautifully upholds the celebration of love and friendship in all its forms that I’ve never found a reason to dislike it, despite my hopeless singleness. There is hope in the world if there is so much love, that a day is dedicated to it.

This v-day i wanted to acknowledge the love i feel for my close friends and those that hold a special place in my heart with some homemade treats. I bought all the ingredients to make macaroons AND whoopie pies AND brownies AND cookies. One of them should turn out edible, right?

I only made the whoopie pies and they turned out more than edible. They were exquisite and the frosting was perfection. After coming to the realization that the frosting would melt during shipment, i gave them away at the office and had my mind set on making a batch of brownies to send. It never happened.
So i have friends that are excited to receive a package that hasn’t been sent.
Valentine FAIL
I’ll send an e-card. It’s the thought that counts?

On accomplishments of the day i jogged 2 miles during my lunch break, finished most of my b-school project and presentation for next week and helped a company i don’t work for save tens of thousands of dollars with a few key suggestions in the project. See, I can be awesome sometimes. If only they would send a few of those G’s my way 🙂
