Beautiful SC

Someone tell me why the beautiful South Carolina beaches has to be so far away from me.
I keep seeing everyone's facebook statuses from the east coast talking about going to the beach or walking by water. for a coastal chic, it's driving me nuts not to be near the ocean or beautiful bodies of water. I'm still wearing jackets to go from the house to the car, and i'm just waiting for the day when i can pull out my handy dandy flipflops and go for a stroll around Storm Lake. (people around here claim its beautiful-we'll see...a lake surrounded by fields just doesn't compare to a whole ocean with sandy beaches and palm trees!) Hopefully we'll get to feel a similar warmth here in Iowa before I go completely out of my mind:)

it's been a few days

I don't feel as sharp as I usually do. It's been five days since I've hit the gym to go running, because I've had these awful allergies and congestion. Ryan and I have gotten into the habit of packing our stuff and taking it to work with us so that immediately after work, we can go running and work out. It's been my one way of really enjoying being active, with the winter weather and such, and it has been my favorite way of relieving the stress of the day, but I have not made it over there, simply because of my congestion and headaches.

I'm encouraged though! Because in the times of running and eating healthy, I've lost 8 pounds:) which makes me happy, because I really worked at it! (but still managed to enjoy the goodness and yumminess of life.) .
