wild winter, warm coffee, minds gone, do you love me?

I had one of my best thrift hauls yet to date today!  Finally after two months of searching for the elusive lululemon, I found that omega sign and scooped it up!  I found a pair of mens lululemon, and that one pair should pay for my entire haul.  I also found patagonia and tons of anthropologie/urban outfitters brands.  Gah liquid gold I tell you, can’t wait to get it up in the store.  Tomorrow I have jury duty, I’d normally ignore the letter but this one was scary and said that I missed the last one, and if I missed this one I would be fined.  Nobody has time for that, so I plan on taking the light rail downtown tomorrow at the crack of dawn.  Yay for being an adult, kind of.  I really hope I don’t get picked tomorrow, and I plan on bringing tons of reading material.  I went to go get Chinese food for lunch today and the cookies fortune said something about working on my work out routine needless to say, I worked out hardcore tonight.  I am drenched in sweat, as if I just came out of the shower drenched, did 15 minutes of the stair stepper, 20 mins of the elliptical, and 25 on the bike.  We also did thighs, and abs, and arms, boom!  My cat just bullied me out of my yogurt, she is literally putting her paw in the container and licking said paw…what a weird girl she is.

Wait, you started a blog and then stopped?

Yes, I started a blog and then stopped.  Story of my life.  Started to lose weight and then stopped, started to go to school and then stopped, started to get my life together but then stopped, started a novel but then stopped.  I see a pattern here.  Well, it is true I’m not good at routine and I’m not good at finishing things.  I don’t like to be taken out of my comfort zone but I will change this.  I am currently participating in a dietbet to get myself back on track with the gym.  If I lose 13 pounds in a month which, I think is plausible, I will split a pot that keeps getting bigger but last I checked was at 37,000 dollars.  So there’s that.  I’m back to reading about 2-3 devotionals a day and making my way through the Bible.  That’s one thing I haven’t lost hope in.  To quote the ever talented kind of creepy Miley Cyrus, “It’s all about the climb”  well you know what it really is.  I’ve been through the ringer and I keep coming back for more.  I recently went to Los Angeles and decided I was going to get as close to that Hollywood sign as I could.  No one told me I would hike about 10 miles that day, and mostly uphill.  That wasn’t the challenge I faced at all.  Yes I’m a bit overweight but I love to climb things so that was the easy part.  The challenges that I faced were the heat and dragging my friend and their “broken back” up these steep scary paths they were not able to.  But the thing is, I had seen pictures from where I was heading and they were breathtaking and it was something I had to see for myself, with my own eyes.  So I did the hike in some parts 2 to 3 times trying to find the easiest way to get my friend up the path and when we got there some hours later, let me tell you the journey was more than worth it.  So I leave you with this, the path to the beauty ahead, does not come easy.  There will be struggles, there will be failures but the beauty in life comes from what you make out of it.  It does not matter what others are doing with their lives it matters only what you are doing with yours.  When you look back at your life, will it be lived, or will it be just a routine that you were a part of, never actually climbing that mountain to see what the scenery had to offer?cali
