..it’s time for some Monday confessions.
The truth is…I’m not always as “deep” as I was on Thursday (I hope you guys know that by now). Some days I have a Kardashian-brain and others I’m a little more introspective. I’m working through some things right now and sometimes putting words on paper (whether cohesive or not) helps. Also, this is your warning that I’m not done talking about regret or other “deeper” topics.
The truth is…I wish I had more time and energy to write. I have a list of ideas but somehow studying for marketing (when I’m not even a marketing major) gets in the way.
The truth is…I wish my marathon was earlier. 6 weeks is still a long time away and even though I haven’t run over 18 miles yet, I feel ready. Just another mental game I have to play.
The truth is…I’ve been eating/cooking a lot of good food lately but haven’t taken a single picture.
The truth is…I really want to go to California and run, do yoga, eat acai bowls and drink wine. Mom, this is your millionth hint.
The truth is…I spent most of yesterday wearing pajamas and sitting in bed. I was partly watching football, partly doing homework. Regardless, I was sitting comfortably for hours.
The truth is…Premium Spotify has been a great investment. I use it mainly for my Spin classes (no commercials!) but with Premium you can listen to music without wi-fi or data. I add almost a playlist a week on my account. Follow me here.
The truth is…I’m ready for fall break. 10 days away!

I love Spotify premium as well! It’s the best investment. Especially when you can get the student price.
Hallelujah for fall break coming up! I can’t wait for 4 whole days off!

I would like to go to California for the same reasons! Really, I want to visit the west coast and go running on fun trails.
I have 8 weeks until my marathon and it feels like forever! But Im sure it will fly by.

California would be great for a running trip because you have the beach and mountains!

I love days when you are wearing PJ’s for most of the day…we need lazy and comforting days like that once in a while. Happy Monday friend and truth is I like these posts! ;)

*Bonus truth* I wear sweat pants most of every day, except when I leave for class or work. I need to be comfy at home!
Yaas to Spotify premium – just got the apple version (probably pretty similar) and it’s such a great investment. I can only imagine as a spin teacher it must be a life saver

A few years ago when iTunes prices jumped from $0.99 to like $1.30 I basically forfeited my paycheck. This has been a great time and money saver!
Truth is, I totally almost called out of work with a sick day today because I’m 1. more tired after Saturdays race than expected 2. Ate way too much food yesterday and just want to lay in my bed in a food coma 3. stayed up way too late marveling at the super moon/lunar eclipse. But here I am… at work. Karma is a bitch so I figured not to abuse my sick days :) Hope you have a fabulous Monday and a speedy week!

I seriously almost called out of life yesterday, but didn’t. Although I did sleep in and skip my run. I contemplated staying up for the super moon but fell asleep….oops.
Liv @ Healthy Liv says
Wearing PJs and sitting in bed doing homework sounds like not too shabby of a Sunday to me! After church, I changed immediately into comfy clothes yesterday (basically PJs) and did homework in bed, too. So nice for a change!

I change immediately into sweats whenever I come home. It’s my “off duty” uniform :)

You’re so lucky to have a fall break! We never had that at my college and I feel like that would have been fantastic. Your campus is so gorgeous though..that’s where I would go for break ;) I also upgraded to Spotify premium and I agree that it’s worth it! I always went over my data limit when I had the regular version, so I’m saving money by getting the membership. I was spending way over $10 a month on music in the past anyway, so this is much better! Going to follow now!
Funny story…my freshman year I was SO excited for fall break and made week long plans to go home. In reality, we only got one day off so my dreams were crushed haha. We get Thursday and Friday off this year so that’s a plus!
I want to go to California as well. Sitting in bed and being comfy is 100% acceptable on any day but especially Sunday-it is the day of rest!!!!. Have a great day

That’s what I tell myself too :) Happy Tuesday!
GIRL come to California so we can run and drink wine together!! haha!
also- Spotify premium has been a life saver for me teaching spin as well. super easy to get new music and not have to pay an arm and a leg to play different stuff each week.

UH that sounds amazing!
Yes! I used to spend so much money on my playlists. It pretty much balanced out my paycheck.
Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine says
The time will fly before you know it! I mean…it’s already October in 2 days!!!???
And if you go to CA….take me with you!!

I can’t believe it’s already October! September kind of dragged on for me, even though it’s technically a shorter month.
Sarah @pickyrunner says
I definitely have all of these great ideas for “deep” posts and then end up writing random lists instead. Life just gets in the way sometimes. I feel you on wishing your marathon was sooner. I’m glad mine is less than 2 weeks away but I’m ready NOW. That’s also how I felt this summer about that half we did in Providence. When I’m ready, I’m ready.
Sarah @pickyrunner recently posted…Training 9/20-9/26
Exactly, and the longer I wait the more I get into my head and convince myself I’m not ready. It’s also that I’m tired of running in the dark and waking up so early ha
Yes yes yes. I agree with #2 and always have a list of things that I want to write!

I guess it’s not the worst situation to be in, especially compared to having nothing to write about but a lot of free time.
DUDE the struggle is real. My marathon is in two weeks, and I don’t think I could wait for a later in the season one. Also Spotify premium is the best.
May or may not be jealous that yours is so soon. Excited for you!!!
You now have me dreaming about visiting California! One day…
I also have a list of topics I want to write about but pinning down a time to do so is proving to be a bit difficult-I hope your marketing overload dies down soon and you get chance to focus on the classes you like best!
Lucky you with an impending Fall break- have you got anything planned?
At high school we always had a week off during October (usually incorporating Hallowe’en) and it was hands down the best holiday of the year in my opinion! xx

I’m going home for fall break! I wish it was longer (just two days off) but I’ll take any chance to go home.
Rebecca @ MyEagerFeet says
Spending a day in sweats watching football (though for me that’s Saturdays!) is the best. And I’m feeling the same way about marathon training (though I don’t feel fully prepared just yet). The first half of training flew by, but how do I have seven weeks left? That feels like forever!
Rebecca @ MyEagerFeet recently posted…Chickamauga Battlefield Marathon: Week 9
I might have done worn sweats for most of Saturday too, but I “justify” that with a morning long run :) I feel like September was a long month (even though it’s technically a shorter month) but October has more activities so it might go by faster.

COME TO CALIFORNIA! You have a place to stay. I invite you as my guest. :)

Spotify Premium IS amazing – and even more so if you can use your parents’ account. The only ‘downside’ is when my mum is trying to access it at the same time and I suddenly hear her songs not mine …
I feel you on the many post ideas and not enough/the right time to write them. Or sometimes I’ll get about five post ideas at once and can’t focus on just one enough to write a whole post. Post scraps abundant over here.

I would love, love, love to go to California. I have yet to visit, but I already feel like I would love living there!
