Totally Random

  • I've been feeling really tired. I guess I whine about it enough that Aaron told me to go to the doc. The doc took blood and I'm low on B12. Interesting.

  • I decided that starting tomorrow, I'm going to start going to the gym more. By 'more' I mean 'more than zero'. I was going like gangbusters for a while, and then I went back to work and I was SO tired all the time... but I need to do this. I know I will feel better - but it's so hard to do it. You have to plan to bring the clothes, or get the kids to out of the house in time, blah blah blah. Enough excuses. And starting tomorrow will be easier because I work from home on Weds and the gym is really close to the house.

  • One of the main reasons I wasn't going to the gym was because I really like the spinning classes - and the times those run are just hard (like 5:45 AM or 6:30 PM). I'm going to try a 'Groove' workout tomorrow. God. Save. Me.

  • My mom was forced into retirement last week. I personally think it's a good thing (she is 68). I'm hoping that it opens up the ability for me to take long weekends up at the cabin - but I have to admit that she isn't really great with the kids. But I think some of it is just me being nervous.
  • My brother got a new job -and it's a good thing. But it means the week long vacation I had planned in August (he was going to visit with my nieces) is off. So now I'm trying to decide what to do with my vacation time. I think I should take a week off in a row - but some long weekends would be fun too. And there is a lot to do in our area... so a stay-cation makes sense.

How's your stomach? When I was low on b12 it was because I had SIBO. They thought it was my IBS, but it turns out that some crazy bacteria was making everything I ate run right through me. 2 weeks of a special antibiotic (specific to colon issues) and it was like I had a new stomach!

Oh heavens, 5:45am classes shouldn't be allowed. People should be sleeping then. But then again, if we don't do things when we should be sleeping, then will they ever get done?

after a couple of rough trips with my too little ones (19 months apart) am all about the staycaiton this summer. i will definitely take at least 2 or 3 days when the nanny is working- need a little me time. good luck with the gym. i have been gong twice a week at work at lunch, and probably about 2 other times a week. while i am not losing weight because i eat like shit, at least i'm toning up- and of course i feel better.
