My brain is in overload these days and I am incapable of coming up with any original content so thank goodness for a Thinking Out Loud post! Of which, don't expect any rhyme or reason.
Even though this is a short week I feel done. And it is only Thursday. It has been just over a week since we found out our network is shutting down. I have been overwhelmed by the amount of support and people reaching out. At the same time I have had a few people come out of the wood work with snarky comments and I just want to punch them.
Honestly, I will be fine. The only thing I wish I knew is if I am staying through to the true end. I helped put the lights on when we launched three years ago, I feel emotionally invested to want to turn them off on the last day. In due time I will know.
I mentioned in an earlier post that my hamstring issue isn’t serious and is mostly gone now.
In its place now however is a pain on the ball of my foot. REALLY? Doesn’t always hurt and I cannot make it hurt by pressing on it or anything. Just usually comes out when walking or running. Super fun. But do not worry, Dr. Google is giving me some helpful advice. Like don’t run. I’ve run every day for the past week, so clearly heading that advice.
If one more person posts how happy they are for the blizzard I may scream. Because for me? This means making sure we are staffed over the weekend and arranging to put staff up in hotel rooms. NOT. FUN. I wish I had a crystal ball to know just how bad it will be.
Speaking of storm, tomorrow is my rest day. Considering I haven’t had one since last Wednesday I was REALLY looking forward to it. However, now I am thinking I should make Sunday my rest day so I can spend all Saturday and Sunday riding out the storm (read: drinking wine and watching Netflix for 48 hours). The decisions!
On one final note. I have made 2016 the year I will finally do a pull up. I have been saying FOREVER I want to be able and a couple weeks ago got the doorway bar. Then realized just how weak I was and got a band to support. I’m weak even with a pretty strong one. I think this might take until 12/31/16. Why must pullups be SO HARD??!?
With that I will end my rambling, happy Thursday. If you are in the storm’s path go stock up on wine! …or is that just me? Wine is more necessary than the bread, milk and water everyone else seems to be stocking up on.
LOL yes agree to the wine stocking! Not sure why people bother stocking up on toilet paper...I mean, how often must you have to go? Stay warm this weekend! And kudos to the pull up goal! I make the same goal every year and it never pans out! I can maybe get through a full pull up (barely) and then that's it, totally winded...if only my upper body strength was as good as my legs!ReplyDelete
I know! My upper body strength is so pitiful. Here's hoping that sooner than later it can match the power that is in my lower body!Delete
I don't listen to Dr. Google either. I've been having a weird pain in the top of my right foot. Similar to what you're experiencing- if I touch or push it it doesn't hurt but randomly comes out when walking or running. I hate going to doctors if I don't absolutely need to though, so I'm putting that happy day off until I don't have a choice.ReplyDelete
It is almost more annoying that it can't be pinpointed! I just don't want to be told not to run; so far continuing to avoid reality ;)Delete
I never, ever wish for snow, and thankfully it's supposed to miss us completely. I hope they're right! Upstate NY, btw.ReplyDelete
Dr. Google isn't a real dr anyway!
I wish the storm had missed us! Sadly we were dumped on. Now counting down until I can see the ground again!Delete
I've been thinking of doing something similar, but I don't have a good place for a pull-up bar in my place, and our gym doesn't have one, so... guess 2017 will have to be the year of the pull-up. I'll be inspired by you for next year ;)ReplyDelete
Ugh I feel like this will quite literally take all of 2016 to conquer! It is a good reminder though to be walking through my bedroom door with it in my face.Delete
Still trying for a pull up here too. Or a chin up even. I come close but still need to push off/jump a little bit. Hopefully by the end of the year we will all knock one out. I've been told the first is the hardest and once you get one, they stack up. LOL, hmmmm.ReplyDelete
Yes! I would be SO happy if I was able to complete one totally unassisted from hanging by the end of the year. Almost the end of the month and I am feeling only a tiny bit stronger...this could take a while :)Delete
