First – I’m so sorry for being MIA for days – my computer has had a few issues, and still doesn’t seem to be quite over it yet. Roar. Sometimes it turns on. Sometimes it doesn’t. I’m trying not to use it for too long, and I need to spend most of my computer time researching dietetic internships (which is stressing me out beyond belief), so I may be around randomly for now
I’ve also been pretty under the weather. I really don’t get seriously sick, besides a cold (knock on wood). This time my whole body just ached and I just wanted to curl up. I felt dizzy, lightheaded, about to faint at times, and all around awful all weekend. That part seems to be gone now, but now I’m stuck with a cough and some congestion.
Anyways, enough complaining. This week I had to say bye to 2 close
people thing in my life.
And Mr. Chocolate
Now, these 2 were very close. So it was only fitting that they went within a week of each other.
With swirls of goodness
We left on good terms.
Although I’m still sad to see them go.
And I’ve been surviving without nut butter in my pantry for a good week now.
I’m going to attempt to run today. How long? Well that depends on how I feel. My two 3-mile runs in the past week have been sh*t, but that’s okay.
I’m at the point where I’m not training, and running should be done for fun, short cardio fitness, stress relief, etc. And if I’m not up for a run – don’t run.
Today I want to run, and I hope it goes well. My body is no longer achy, nor do I have a headache.
I’m also starting to do strength training again. With work, I barely had time to fit in my runs, let alone strength training. But I know strength (especially ab strength) is very important in running and injury prevention. I also miss the way I felt from strength training. Not to mention a little more muscle .
I only wish I belonged to a gym at this point. $$$!!
Okay, I’ve been on this computer long enough, and I should get off before it combusts.
PS: this is what happens when you try and transfer a pumpkin cupcake in the car.
I tried. And failed even more.
The frosting ended up all over the container
But that didn’t stop me from licking it off
