Three Things Thursday!

1. This week the mornings have been really cold and I just have not had the desire to get up and run.  Especially this morning.  I was able to get out Tuesday morning for 3.6 miles and yesterday for a fast 2 miler in the misty rain.  But this morning when the alarm went off at 5am, my body said no.  So I rolled over and went back to sleep for another 45 minutes.  The extra sleep was glorious but at the same time it was a beautiful morning that I missed out on.  Weirdly enough, I have been really wanting to run mile repeats...maybe this weekend...??

2.  Last week my parent's cat got a hair cut.  Her winter fur coat is so thick that when summer time comes around her fur gets all knotted.  So my mom had her groomed so she would be more comfortable!  And she really is - she loves not having the fur!  Isn't she cute???  (Before and after shots below)



3.  30 days ago, I wrote about participating in Amanda's 3 Changes Challenge where I said I would a) stop eating candy, b) make an effort to connect with friends and c) get rid of clothes that do not fit anymore.  Well I am proud to say that I haven't eaten any candy! Not a single piece!  It was hard at first but then I just kept on going and I feel so much better without it!  I have been eating my fair share of cookies and cake though!  I have made attempts to connect with friends but work and family stuff has gotten in the way.  And lastly, I have nice big pile of clothes on my bedroom floor that I will be donating!  It feels good to get rid of the clothes that didn't exactly make me look that good because they didn't fit - it was like a mini episode of "What Not to Wear" in my bedroom!

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend!!  Happy Thursday!!

Nice job on the 30 day challenge! And your cat's haircut is too funny! She's so cute. My cat would totally eat my hand if I attempted a cut like that on her.

hahaha that cat.

And ohhh my yes, the weather has been brutal on motivation. This morning was similar for me... sometimes you just have to sleep :)

wow now that's a haircut! Nice job on the challenge--sometimes I think it's easier to just go cold turkey--at least for me anyway!

Lisa said...

Congrats on following through on your goals - especially to not eat candy! That takes motivation and discipline!

Chelsea said...

Haha. Actually the cat looks pretty PO'ed in both pictures. I remember growing up we had a dog with long hair that would get tangled, and my mom would give him a haircut herself. He didn't like it when it was happening, but he did like being cool after it was done.

I have only had one long haired cat. I bet they do like it better with less. Nice of him/her to pose!
