I write this on the last day of my first real vacation of the year. For someone who used to hate vacations, they sure have grown on me in recent years.
This was a staycation but I was so looking forward to it. I was feeling a little ragged. But like any good staycation, I had a to do list.
So how did I do?
I did not get my tires rotated.
I did read 2 books and almost finished my audio book.
I did not wash my car.
I did hit the trails. Twice- for 12 ish miles of awesomeness. From ocean view to mountain view.
I did not run ALL the miles. Some health issues got in the way. That sounds much heavier than it was, oops.
I did run 5 out of the 7 days though. I call that a win.
I maybe didn’t make the healthiest choices in food.
I ate all the good things. I even tried ice cream called Jack & Coke. And it tasted just like it sounds. Yum.
I did not make it to the movies to see Spiderman.
I did watch an array of disaster movies though. Why those seemed like a good idea when I was feeling poorly, not sure.
I did wind up with the gnarliest sunburn.
I did use sunblock.
I had a birthday. Part of me feels older and part of me doesn’t.
I didn’t manage to stop checking my work phone on the daily. Oops.
So, not too bad.
