On Monday, I went for a lovely trail run during my lunch break. The weather has been absolutely perfect for running through the woods.
I stumbled into this wonderful gang while running. The woman was a dogwalker and kind enough to let me snap a quick photo. Look at that motley crew of faces! That must be a really fun job.
Later, at home, we did some redecorating.
This is a photo of my closet. We removed the hideous doors and instead hung some homemade curtains for a much cleaner, more subtle look.
It also just so happens that this curtain rod is super sturdy...
...because it's actually a pullup bar! One of my friends is moving to Seattle and generously left his pullup bar behind. It's been on our wishlist for a long time, especially now that our apartment is cool enough to accommodate more active exercises than just whining and napping.
I still can't do a chinup or pullup (I had to jump for this photo) - but, that's why my strength training goal is a goal. Hopefully soon!
My friend also gave us his set of adjustable dumbbells. We've got more plates than I'll ever need, and they stack nicely. I'm excited to take my home workouts up a notch.
My husband likes to say that everything will come to you in time, no matter what it is, if you're willing to wait long enough. He was definitely right in this case :)
If you want something, do you believe in immediate gratification or in waiting?
I am a very cautious person, so I'm all about waiting - what you want now, you may not want later.
Can you do a chinup or pullup?
Not yet, but I'm working on it!
