Well yay for being down a pound…though, with the way I fluctuate weight throughout any given week, it doesn’t really mean too much. But still, I am running with the “yay for being down a pound” for now.
I’ve struggled to get back into a routine of any kind – eating, exercising, even sleeping have all been chaotic. Most of it stems from work. Lately it has been hectic at a minimum and insane as the norm. Today is another example…have to work today and it will likely take the better part of the day. I do plan to get out with the Moo-dog (and maybe even the Sadie-dog if I am feeling daring – the both of them at the same time is a bit much sometimes) to walk the neighborhood.
November seems to be about when I will get to find a normal schedule again. I can only hope. In the meantime, I am going to squeeze in walks with the dogs when I can, hopefully a trip or two to the gym, and I will try to watch what I eat (though yesterday was definitely not one of those days).
I did a little shopping therapy the other day – I picked up an iPod nano and some nice earbuds to go with it (I am digging the Yurbuds). I also picked up an arm band for it. To aid will allergies I changed out all the intake filters for the HVAC system. And I put a new water filter in the fridge. Little things that took all of five minutes but have already made a huge difference.
Also, on a more grody note, I am still fighting an ingrown toenail. I injured the nail a while back and it has not grown in normally since. It flares up off and on, but lately it seems to just be on. I have tried to avoid seeing a doctor about it…but that may have to change. Not that I have time to fit an appointment in any time soon. Any of my running friends have any home-remedy suggestions to help?
