I'm a 30 year old women living in SE Alaska trying to make the healthiest choices that I can on a daily basis. I love the great outdoors and cooking up a storm. Follow me as I take life one day at a time...one adventure at a time.
Tuesday afternoon I decided to go to the pool for a swim. My plan was to do 1600m in about an hour. I know it's pretty slow but I'm a beginner. From the start of my workout I just felt super tired and by 1200m my vision was getting spotty.
So I jumped out of the pool and showered. By the time I drove home I really wasn't feeling so hot. Fast forward to the next morning waking up feeling kinda crappy with a pins and needles throat. Well one of the down sides of owning your own business and having zero emoyees is that there is no such thing as a sick day.
So I went to work and around 2 I started getting ready to close, cleaning and such. So I closed up and drove home dreaming of crawling into bed and resting. When I get home I look at the clock and it says 2:28... What the heck... That can't be right!? Yup you guessed it, I closed an hour early not even realizing it! In 4 years I have never closed for a sick day or even closed early... We'll see if anyone says anything today, I honestly never have too much business that last hour of the day.
I'm back at work today and feeling worse than yesterday. But I don't really feel like I have a choice. I hope that I feel better soon. I rarely get sick, and being ill really makes you appreciate your health.
I have been on a running hiatus for about 4 months now. But I now feel ready to get started again. After the marathon last fall I couldn't believe how burnt out on running I was. I can't help but think that part of my lack of motivation came from my disapointing finish at the marathon.
After the marathon Ben and I took a road trip down to Napa and then onto Vegas. When we got home I had gained about 5 lbs. And then after the Holidays I put on about 5 more. I've lost about half of it but have that weight to lose plus the 20 that I need to lose to get back to a healthy weight. I'm really hoping that this blog and it's readers will help me get back into fighting shape as to speak.
I know that I said that I haven't been running, but I have picked up a new sport... swimming! This winter I realized that I'm 30 years old and didn't know how to swim. Sure I could get in the water and make it to the other end of the pool with a dog paddle slash flutter kick type stroke. But I wanted to learn how to properly swim. And to be comfortable beathing with my face in the water. And guess what... I love swimming!
