I finished my scrappy reader pillow in January and couldn’t be happier with it! It was so (sew) easy!
So the first month of 2015 I actually kept up with my personal goals. Well, for the most part. But I have also made a goal to be kinder to myself, so even though I “made something” this month (the pillow) but didn’t “bake something” because I had the stomach flu and then a head cold, I forgave myself.
In January I met my daily writing goals and worked past a leg injury to run eleven miles yesterday. In one session. Only stopping once to refuel for a few minutes. I feel this needs to be repeated–I RAN 11 FREAKING MILES. More than I ever thought I could run in my entire life. My half marathon is in two weeks and I think I’m actually ready! Of course I’m sore today, but that’s a small price to pay for feeling so good about myself.
Today was my 34th birthday and we just got breakfast, hung out at home, went for a walk, and did laundry. Anything to avoid the Super Bowl crowds just a few miles from our house. Even though it was a quiet day, it felt like a new beginning.
Here’s to a new year.
