Running with the wolves

The past month as been about… getting back into feeling human again. What makes me feel good (yoga, keeping busy, making plans with new friends) and knowing what to avoid (not sleeping enough, not eating right, too much caffeine or alcohol).

I ran for the first time in a while today, and it’s no surprise, I still hate running. I want to add it in just as an option if I can’t make it to a yoga class, because it’s so simple to do. I don’t have an excuse not to do it… My backdrop alone makes it inexcusable. I had mixed emotions once I finished my lap across the beach – which was disappointing, because I was hoping for the endorphin rush but it was nowhere to be found.

It’s all the little things. Maybe the run didn’t help, but the little things later in the day did. I found a cafe near my place that used unsweetened almond milk (so rare), and I saw a quote that helped me through the disgruntling feeling that was rearing its ugly head all morning. You have to appreciate the little wins, and trust that life balances everything out.
