Lessons Learned

Yesterday was one of those days. Even though it wasn’t the best day, I walked away with some lessons learned.

1. If it’s raining, I might as well get some Starbucks for the ride to work. My ride was 2 hours and 15 minutes yesterday.

2. Everybody is human and we all make mistakes. I was pretty hard on myself yesterday and today I’m trying to give myself a break.

3. Sometimes a beautiful sky can make the day a little better.

4. Baby gates make life so much easier. Thanks for the installation Dad!

5. A home cooked meal is always a good idea.

6. “Healthy” dessert was pretty satisfying. This was a weight watcher’s brownie topped with chocolate arctic zero, chocolate sauce, and light whipped cream. FYI Arctic Zero is similar to ice cream but a whole pint only has 150 calories!

7. Running in the cold and wind helps me run faster. The sooner it’s done, the sooner I’ll be warm. πŸ™‚


No running outside today…


Have you learned any lessons recently? Serious or light hearted? πŸ™‚


  1. I have learned that I need to relocate – definately no running outside for me…it is -40 here today

  2. Where do you get that Arctic Zero? I agree about the sky. When I am feeling bad I will go outside and look up and remember how beautiful the world is! I also think baby gates are beautiful too, haha! I have the same one for my dogs!

  3. I learned that I can’t control everything and sometimes it’s better to let go and just go with the flow. Just looking at that beautiful sky on my computer screen make me feel better! Sometimes the winter is so gray here in NJ we forget what the sky looks like.
