it’s been a little bit since my last post. i’ve been as busy as can be: grading, running, spring cleaning like no other, and street selling (not too much luck on this go round). things have been going quite well lately (finally got the desk all finished) and i’m looking forward to so many cool adventures coming up. our friend adrianna is visiting soon (can’t wait to show her sf), we’re heading to nyc in about three weeks, and i just recruited a bunch of friends to run bay to breakers again this year.  woo-hoo! lots of fun events to come. ah, spring is almost here.

as for the rest of the weekend, i’m planning on making a slow cook soup tomorrow and taking a longer run. i need to start upping my milage in preparation for bay to breakers and another half marathon in june. a full marathon is not happening. i was trrrippin’! as long as i beat my race times from last year i’ll be happy. so basically i’m in competition with myself!

cleansed.

hey! hey! hey! well i officially completed my cleanse on sunday morning and i honestly couldn’t feel better. the first day was the toughest and after that it got much easier. the biggest lesson i’ve learned is that i need to be more cognizant of what i put into my body. now that i’ve completed the cleanse i just want to eat healthier and keep juicing. watch out i might turn into a juicing nerd. i’m super into it!

anyway, brian and i went to the store early sunday morning to grab more produce and we snapped these iphone photos just for fun. it was raining like crazy all weekend so we weren’t out and about too much. i love the rain! it’s so nice bundling up, listening to records, and having an excuse to just hangout at home.

sweater weather officially arrived mid last week which gave the city a true feeling of fall. before last week, we were experiencing this crazy hot-cold-hot-cold-hot-cold weather, which is the worst! the consistently crisp weather has definitely been a welcomed change. i love the fall days when the air has a bit of a brisk chill, the sun is out, and the sky is clear. and that’s exactly what we had all weekend! but i have to say one of the best parts about this weather is pulling out my sweaters and tights. i’ve had this cozy sweater tucked away in my closet, just waiting for the perfect time to make it’s grand appearance, since i purchased it at a street sale last summer. i think i paid 3 bucks for this awesome/had my name written all over it cardigan. yet, another reminder that i need to keep thriftin’ and shoppin’ street sales.

p.s. another positive change is my revived motivation! i met my goal of running 15 miles last week AND i’ve already started this week off strong. ch-ch-changes!

love bug.

the colors in this outfit kinda remind me of a ladybug! i wore this sunday for a date brian and i had at the ferry building. we had such a wonderful time together and it reminded both of us that we need to go on real dates more often. we are very busy most of the time. however, quality time together is too important to overlook. that’s why we really need to schedule in awesome dates at least once a week! i mean we spend time together daily, but i’m a girl and i want real dates! ones that require getting dressed! not merely hitting the submit order button on grubhub whilst wearing a facial mask and pjs. for our next date, i want to head out to wine country for lunch and wine tasting. i can’t wait!

on another note, i’m also looking forward to getting back in shape. brian and i rode our bikes to the ferry building and back. it’s a pretty easy ride but it was nice to get some exercise in nonetheless. i’ve been running more lately too but i still really need to step it way up. ever since running the half marathon i just haven’t stuck to my regular running schedule. perhaps, that’s why i’ve been getting sick so often… i haven’t been breaking a sweat enough. it’s time to get back in gear. for real!
