Rain, Rain Please Go Away

What a rainy and nasty week it has been!  Since Neal and I return to DC Monday night it has not stopped raining.  It rained all day Tuesday, all day Wednesday, all day Thursday, and has yet to let up today.  I don’t mind the rain but I just hate the gray sky.  I miss the sun.

Check out the flooding not too far from my house.

This weekend’s weather is still up in the air, but I’m hoping to see a little sun!  The gray sky tends to bring my energy levels down and leaves me with a lack of motivation.  After work this week I haven’t really had the energy to accomplish my to do list.  I’ve been slacking big time on my graduate school work, so I’m going to have to make up for it this weekend.

Today really has been a great day, despite the fact that Neal and I didn’t go for our run this morning.  To make up for it, I am going to go for a run after work today with Liz at her gym.  Side note, Liz made a ROCKIN’ dessert last night and I just had to share.  She made a low fat chocolate trifle which tasted a-mazing!

Instead of topping it with chopped chocolate, she topped it with English toffee bits!  It was fantastic.

In other news, I have cancelled by gym membership (eek!).  As Neal and I are back into our running routine, spending $89.99 a month to attend 4-8 spin classes just isn’t worth it.  In addition, I now have access to my gym at work so why pay for an additional gym if I don’t have to?

I think training outside this fall/early winter will go well, but I’m a little nervous about January-March.  Those months are always tough on me, so I’m thinking I may join Crossfit at that time.  Ali from Food. Fitness. Fashion. has really inspired me to look into Crossfit and I’m thinking it’d be a great addition come December/January! It’s a little pricey, but I know I would love it!

In even greater news, Sprint PCS is going to carry the iPhone 5 starting in October.  I am stinking thrilled!! I can’t wait to get rid of my blackberry!
