Dear allergy season, YOU SUCK.  I sure would like to get through my cardio workouts without coughing up half a lung!
One of my coworkers had a death in the family--she lives fairly close to me so I went down to the viewing.  The whole time I was there I kept hearing odd music and thought "this is really weird for a funeral home to play". Got out to my car and realized that I somehow hit the iTunes on my phone.  Took forever to shut it off.  Another friend from work went with me--she about peed her pants laughing at me!!  Thankfully the volume was not loud, just enough to know it was there.

It's funny how things work out. As bad as Monday was for me, yesterday everything fell into place. I had a perfect day, starting with a walk, then spending time with mom, and came home to get a little work done on the farm and in the house. The cardiologist gave me two months to get my lipid numbers down and I found a program called Exercise is Medicine through the new medical center where I go. My doctor sent them a referral and I will get a consultation and short term workout program. I'm not exactly sure it's what I'm looking for, but definitely a step in the right direction.

I worked debugging the house until after 10:00 last night, so I was really tired this morning. I counted 40 stinkbugs that I got from around the windows in the bedroom. I got at least as many out of Fred's office, which is on the same side of the house. For some reason, there are more on the north side of the house. I sprayed the perimeter of the house and around all of the windows. Instead of a walk[...]

Ugh, total FAIL - went to ship my big OPA painting to Cincinnati, and for some reason it was going to take until Tuesday going UPS ground. It's supposed to arrive by Saturday! So I had to pay for 2-day air. $600 frame. $330 shipping. , this is an expensive show considering I rarely sell a painting at one of these shows!! Hope it gets me some press of some type to make up for it! Guess next time I'll pick up the frame a week early instead of waiting until Monday the week of. I also need to only enter small paintings in these shows, why don't I remember that?!? Lesson learned. I hope.
In other news, I'm on the clean eating wagon this week. In the past few weeks, my weight somehow climbed above 145. I don't know if it was water weight or what, but I like racing below 140, and I've been riding my off lately, so I was NOT happy to see the number on the scale. I've been eating clean the past few days and the number is dropping, but I've got to stick with it for a while. Riding a lot do[...]

7:00am: Hump DAAAAAAAY!
Finally woke up feeling halfway decent. Of course, I was in bed, lights out at 8:20pm, which isn't exactly easy to replicate on a nightly basis, especially now with sunset creeping later and later.  But - I'll take it.
Not sure what's on the agenda this afternoon. With the first set of storms moving through today (rain predicted through most of next week -- they're saying as much as 5" will fall by Monday), it's not going to be dry for awhile. I might need to invest in rain gear so I can get outside and play even when the weather isn't cooperating.
Poor Belle, I think she's going to be hiding in the closet from the storms for a long time...
My challenge for April was participating in a photo challenge -- take a photo every day following a set of prompts. I've loved it -- it's really made me more observant and pushed me creatively. Next month is going to be quite the challenge, though -- no TV. There will be some exceptions/rules to this one, but I[...]

Short ride before heading to the docs.
Visit with the doc went well, I need to focus more on strength work but I can start to add the run back in as long as I build slowly and keep it short for a while.  He also suggested the treadmill to add some cushioning. 
So, as long as the pain and numbness stays away, I am good.

I'm unsure what is going to happen this evening. I may walk with the group, I may ride, I may swim. I may win the lotto. However, the percentages are stacked in favor of walking or riding at this point. Lottery winning is pretty much off the table 
Ann really likes going to Treeumph:
   
I believe we have found her happy place. Can't wait until I get back to @treeumph with @annmban ~ #thegroundisoverrated #happyplace #swflorida #funisthebest
