Although it's not always terrible at work. Every now and then we have a little fun. (On fewer and fewer occasions, actually, but... still... )

 4:44 PM: Firmed up some plans to ride on Saturday morning. Weather is supposed to be nice. Am looking forward to it!

In my journey to eliminate chemicals from my hair and skin, I recently forayed into homemade deodorant. I know. I'm that girl now. I've been waiting until the weather cooled off to jump back into this. I keep reading about magnesium oil being an uber effective deo (plus it allegedly doubles as a sleep aid when rubbed into the skin) so I bought a bottle last weekend. 2 days of this on my pits and I was slightly stinky after work. I know you have to "detox" a bit from chemical deo, but for being all but sedentary at my desk for 8 hours I shouldn't really be smelling like ANYTHING. So I made this recipe last night and on the trainer? I was all but DRY when the rest of my body had sweat rolling everywhere. I'll test it the rest of the week but I'm sooooooo optimistic! 
UPDATE: Had an issue with getting it to dry this morning before work, so I have like oil stains on my shirt today :(. Hope that washes out, it's shea butter and coconut oil, yikes. Smelling acceptable, and even a bit[...]

Day #030
234 days until the Utah Valley marathon

My right foot started to hurt during the run today. It did not hurt bad enough to stop me from running, just enough to make me worry.

Today = rededicating myself to my goals...again.

Significant back issues this week, starting Sunday evening.  I am confident it's the reason I'm not sleeping every night (that plus my allergy meds).  Oddly, the nights that I seem to sleep better are the nights after I've had alcohol..strange.  It got really bad Monday night, but luckily Jon found some leftover percocet from my foot surgery last year, and I paired that with a glass of wine, and thankfully got a good night sleep yesterday.  I am thinking this is a catch 22.  As I was training over the summer, it seemed to be better.. then I go into off-season and enter lazy mode and it gets really bad again.  But.. it's hard to start up training again when it hurts this bad.. arghh! 
I was going to go to my first Team Z track workout this morning (and discuss with the coaches how to approach it with my back issues), but it was raining, so I took the excuse to sleep a few extra hours (and promptly arrived 90 min late for work).  I brought my [...]

Yesterday's highlight was a trip to Target...by myself! (Don't hate my exciting life) Which could have been really dangerous, but I made a list & stuck to it. Today's equally exciting highlights were doing 2 loads of laundry & watering the plants (inside & out). Woo!

Another night of being awake from about 3:30am, but that's okay because when I looked at the incision spot again this morning, it looked better!!! 
Also, I'm not feeling sick anymore - which I'm going to take as a really good sign that the infection is finally on its way out.  YAY!
I got to talk to my parents last night who are already in AZ for the winter and just forgot to tell me that they had left a week and a half ago, drove almost straight through, and have been basking in the sun while I've been waiting to hear from them that they made it in one piece.  Sheesh, parents these days!  Don't they know that I worry about them!!  
Going to try and walk/run after work today.  I know I can't put a helmet on my head yet so riding is out, and swimming would just be dumb (see, I CAN be smart!), so hopefully my neck won't still hurt with every step - but there's only one way to find out!  
In other news... We signed off on the "plot plan" fo[...]

You're my compass when I'm lost, my anchor when I get tossed, and the right way when all I can do is wrong. -Eric Church
I bailed on today's run, but moved it to tomorrow morning. So, today marks the return of the MAMIL, as I should be able to get the bike out on the road for the first time in a while. I rode a short one last week and today should be a bit more. And then there will be a trip back in time as TW and I go to see "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" on stage. There is a bit of trepidation to seeing this put on by the local community theatre company. It could go be awesome, ugly, or something in the middle I guess, so we'll simply go with the flow.

Last night I couldn't fall asleep so I took some seroquel and ended up sleeping 10 hours. It was important to me to be energetic today cause we're going out for dinner tonight. I just did my swimming and in about 2 hours I'll try my bike ride. A bit nervous about it cause last week this combination made me exhausted the next day. I will do my best to keep my heart rate down.
