This Sandy deal has put me in one sour mood. Add in homesickness you got one nasty case of the Mondays. To be honest, I will most likely run outside Monday morning early unless it is super bad, which I doubt. (I know my fellow blogger has the same plans, glad crazy isn’t contagious because you all would catch it)
After my run on Sunday there was still no rain, just some wind but nothing extreme. It only started drizzling around 6 when I was walking home from work. I have no clue what Sandy has up her sleeves but I have a feeling this week will be about going with the flow and adapting to whatever is in store. I have a few updates that I have been uh… declining to mention. I realized it was about time because bottling it all up does nothing for the mind. Lesson learned. Here we go… (anyone start playing ‘here we go, one more time, everybody feelin fine..?) Just me?
Marvelous… that my GI doctor is taking my flare up seriously. I haven’t really mentioned but I have been emailing with him quite a lot. My symptoms have not only worsened, but I have had new ones. My energy is off, my food is not digesting, my hungry is non-existent and my rash has spread and worsened. I was worried because I would hate my body to not be getting the nutrients it needs because of this flare up. Enter overhaul. He is having me change around what I eat, avoid certain things and add some things in. I am actually happy with the changes but not going to lie, a bit worried about my grocery bill come next week. He has been super helpful in guiding me towards the gluten free options that are budget friendly. I only hope this works.
Marvelous… I let the tears flow. I think in my state of just annoyance with my stomach and exhaustion, I kept plastering this smile on my face. Enter Saturday night after work and I just wanted to crumble. I realize I am just totally underestimating how much of my day I spend on my feet now, moving around and doing work.
Marvelous… I get to work from home today, will most likely have my work from 6-8 pm at the running store cancelled and could possibly have work from home on Tuesday as well. The funny part is my boss made a point in her email to mention that we are NOT off but rather working remotely. Aka get shit done.
Marvelous…I just ordered a new pair of running shoes. I decided to of course stick with my Mizunos (4+ years in this brand) but decided to go with less stability support. Instead of the Inspires, I decided to go with the Wave Riders. I think some of my foot pain and quick breakdown of shoes are due to the fact I don’t need that much support. Want to see the gems I got for 50 bucks? Oh so me.
Marvelous… my work introduced to the best site alive for employees. This site allows employees to get up to 60% off wholesale of ALMOST EVERY TYPE of athletic brand, even stuff like North Face. All you have to do is take the training modules for a brand and you get the discounts. Last night I did Mizunos 20 minute training and now I can get my $125 running shoes for $50 bucks. No joke.
Marvelous… that I am slowly realizing when something is broken it can be fixed. As hard as it to acknowledge, we can always pick ourselves up. Sorry team for the vagueness, just kind of hit a mood low and trying to move past it.
To my knowledge, most of the big cities are shut down today so I hope all you lucky folks have a great day without work. I am just hoping the power doesn’t go out because with no entertainment besides little old me, life could get boring real fast. Oh and don’t forget the fact all of my food needs to be cooked to be consumed. Wuh oh.
Questions: What is marvelous about your Monday? Any fun things planned to get through this weather?
