I ran four miles [on a flat road] yesterday in 48 minutes. Took the iPod with me for the first time in weeks, and it felt good to be running to music again. I'd hoped to be a little faster, but that's not my real goal right now. I had fun! It was cool starting out, but I warmed up quickly and felt great when I was done, a feeling that lasted the rest of the day.
Today is a weight-training day; I will be sure to eat something and be well-hydrated before I start. I don't want a repeat performance of Sunday's little heart flutters.
I'm up a pound from last Tuesday, which means I'm averaging a 1.5-pound-per-week loss at this point. Heh. Gotta find the positive spin, right? I was down a pound yesterday morning, and I know I didn't gain two pounds in one day, so I'm not sweating today's number too much.
I dreamed Sunday night that I missed a plane. It was quite real and vivid, and I asked Mr. Shrinking Knitter what it might mean. His training was more along the Rational Emotive Therapy line than in Freud's dream interpretation, so I had to go web-walking to find some insight. Dreaming of missing a boat or a plane can mean that you feel you've missed some opportunity in your waking life; you're too late; you can't make a connection, that you need to pull yourself together to make the connections you desire. I'm supposed to ponder these questions:
- Where are you going in your ?
- Why are you going there?
- What is it that makes you feel you are "too late" or that you don't have to take your part on of life?
- What are you currently trying to accomplish in your ?
- What's missing to do your job properly or to get what you want?
- How can you better prepare yourself for what you want to do?
