Things I’ve Learned About Myself

August 31, 2011

I was puddle jumping during my run in the rain this morning.

It has been raining a lot lately. I honestly don’t mind; I will take rain over snow any day!!

Since my half-marathon 1.5 weeks ago, I have been dealing with some pain in my right hamstring, but I am happy to report that my run this morning was pain-free! ๐Ÿ™‚

I knew I just needed to give it some rest. Now hopefully this continues!

Distance: 3 miles

Time: 26 minutes

Weather: cool, rainy, 50*

I was a short, quick run, but I still got my endorphin-high fix for the day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Breakfast

I tried a new breakfast item today: Kath’s Dough Boy Smoothie.

I actually made one last week, just never posted about it.

Basically you make overnight oats in the blender the night before but wait until the morning to blend everything together.

My Dough Boy Smoothie contained:

– milk

– 1/2 banana

– frozen blueberries

– old-fashioned oats

– Nancy’s Keifer ~ blackberry flavor

– strawberry Greek yogurt

– cinnamon (I accidentally dumped about 2 tablespoons in, so I had to scoop a bunch out!)

(I switched the settings on my camera to RAW quality but wasn’t able to upload them to iPhoto unless I made them smaller, which resulted in the poor picture above. Does any know if I can (how to) upload RAW images to iPhoto?)

I am amazed at the new things I learn about myself each day.

One would think they know themselves through and through by the age of 28, but I seriously learn new things about myself each day!

Things I have recently learned about myself:

  • I would rather work for myself than others.
  • I like to change things up.
  • I am not a procrastinator (on most things)!
  • I would rather do something myself than have someone do it for me because I usually have a particular way of doing it.

Things I have always known about myself:

  • I do not like confrontation
  • I am very indecisive.
  • I like a schedule, but I don’t like doing the same thing every day.

Question

What is something you have learned about yourself recently?

    1. Really enjoying your posts. Don’t know if I could do the overnight oats in a blender though….don’t really like them in the jar either. I like my oats cooked. I liked baked oatmeal for breakfast. I make a pan of it and cut it in squares then just get one out of the fridge every morning. Usually add a piece of fruit and/or yogurt then I am ready to go! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Thanks!

        Yeah, it took me a while to get on the overnight oats bandwagon. I mostly just eat them because they are convenient.

    1. I’ve learned that I need to stand up for myself, who I am and what I want! What a process though..whew!

      Also…I LOVE running the rain. I feel your pain with the snow…I’m close to where you ran your first marathon and the winters can be harsh! booo…treadmill!

    1. Glad your leg is healing up. I am also not very confrontational…but I sometimes wish I was.
