got my work cut out for me.

As I was watching the Emmy Awards last night, I wrote a post but as I read over it before hitting publish, I realized I said a whole heck of a lot without actually saying much of anything.  So I scratched it and here were are.

Speaking of the Emmys, did y’all watch the show?  What did you think?  I was a bit underwhelmed with the show as a whole, but Jane Lynch held her own hosting.  I was thrilled Melissa McCarthy and Jim Parons won for Outstanding Actress and Actor in a Comedy, respectively.  The big disappointment of the night, for me, was Chris Colfer not winning Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy.

But, let’s talk about the important part of any awards show…the fashion!  My favorite looks of the night went to Lea Michele and Zooey Deschanel.  Lea looked stunning and I thought Zooey made what could have easily come across as a prom dress totally red carpet chic.


Church was really great yesterday.  It was actually the first time I’ve gone in quite awhile and I missed it a lot more than I thought I did.  I really had no good reason not to go most weeks…I just didn’t.  Shane did the teaching and it really resonated with my own realization from Anthem last week.

Sometimes we are so focused on what was that we miss the new creation. It takes practice to recognize the resurrection in our lives.

I’m not who I was and I am intentionally embracing the resurrection in my own life.  It’s a beautiful thing.

Most of the rest of Sunday was pretty chill.  I took a nice afternoon nap (making up for the fact that the dogs woke up up at four freaking fifty in the morning) and eventually made my way over to the gym.  Remind me to not save 22 of the 28 miles I need to run/walk/bike each week until the very end of the week.  Between 12.0 on Saturday and 10.0 yesterday, I was ready to be done with the bike for a couple days!

Remember how one of my 28 while 28 goals was to run a sub-28:28 5k?  Oh man.  I should have thought that one through!  Last night, I plugged that into the pace calculator app I have on my phone and had a minor freak out moment!

A 9:10 pace?!?  I don’t run that fast!  I’ve got my work cut out for me!  When I did the Irish Jig in under 30 minutes earlier this year, I thought that was outstanding for my normal time!  It’s going to take some (speed)work and a lot of effort, but I think I can manage it!  First things first though, no running!  Let your knee heal, Mindy.  

My food choices lately have been completely uninspired.  I’ve had toast with sunflower seed butter, strawberry jam, and chia seeds for at least one meal a day for over a week now.  I haven’t had the motivation or appetite for much of anything.

The new fall shows start tonight!  I’m currently switching between The Sing Off and Dancing with the Stars.

Zooey Deschanel is always a vision of loveliness. I kind of want to be her.

Loved The Sing Off last year, hope it’s as good this year!

And just think… it’ll be easier to work on speed when your goal distance is 3.1 miles… you can put the energy into going hard for the short amount of time instead of needing to conserve energy to go 1+ hours. 🙂
