5K race day! Allergies have been killer today even though I took a Zyrtec, so I'm a bit worried about my breathing.

8:04am:  I keep thinking it's Friday.  It's not.
Begged off going to my parents' last night.  My Mom is a little annoyed with my relatives because of how they dropped in and are staying at their house, so she was fine with me not being there.  Of course, that means that I won't be able to do the same thing for a late Friday night dinner, but at least it'll be Friday.  Right?
Because I seem to be experimenting with all sorts of diet/weight loss/nutrition things lately, I decided to add another to the list:  DietBet.  You put up money and need to lose 4% of your body weight in 4 weeks.  If you lose the 4%, you get your share of the pot (historically, 1.5x - 2x what you bet).  Worst case, you get your money back (it all depends on how many people reach their goal).  The game I joined starts tomorrow and runs through mid-September.  My 4% is not quite 7 pounds which seems pretty reasonable.  GymPact has been working REALLY w[...]

Steady day at work and dangerously hot out. Didn't get anything done today. Maybe I need to get up extra early on my duty days to get my workout in.

Work a Little Harder

Late work day today and my run is done, so I have a little time to clean up a bunch of life stuff. I believe it'll start with a hair cut and continue from there. Oh yeah, it is health fair day at work as well, so let's just get through that part of the day.

Slowly Slogging Back to Shape

Totally didn't know it was Thursday.  At one point, I said "Ugh! It's only Wednesday!" to someone on an elevator.  Then I realized it was Thursday.  Thank goodness!
Something broke in our air conditioner on Tuesday. When we got home on Tuesday, it was over 80 degrees in the house.  We tried to get it to work, but the blower fan seemed to be stuck.  Sadly, the maintenance man could not get it fixed on Tuesday night.  He tried his best, so I am totally not annoyed at him in any way.  It made for a hot night though.
Wednesday was crazy at work.  Super busy and lots of running around.  I walked out about 10 minutes later than I wanted to in order to get to an ortho appointment.  Of course, got stuck in a big accident on I95 North.  Made it just 5 minutes late.
I have something called Hallux Rigidus in the big toe on my right foot caused by a bone spur.  I have no problems when I wear my Dansko clogs or my Allegria shoes, b[...]

New shoooz purchased! I had a $50 voucher for registering for the Start2Finish training group, and two $20 gift cards so I only spent $35. WOOOO! Love that. Ready to run tonight, even if it is 100 degrees :o Which it is.
Ice Bucket Challenges were getting a little eye-roll-y for me (people dumping water on their toddlers heads = screaming kid and just silly!) until I just saw one from a friend who started his video holding a photo of his mom. Who passed away from ALS. That one got me.

Grace is starting Homeschool P.E. at the Y today which means I should have time to swim while she is in class before I teach the toddlers. YAY for both of us :). I am not teaching the Homeschool class this year. She will have 30 min of fitness then 2 hours of sport activities! A lot of families choose 1 hour of sport, 1 hour of swimming but she does not want to swim because she swam there 1 time when she was 4 and we didn't realize she was coming down with the flu so now she thinks the Y pool makes you sick ha ha ha.
She loved her class!!!

The fat cat bit my leg again last night.  This time completely unprovoked.  I had been changing all the litter boxes and I grabbed his food bowl to fill it--as I stepped into the laundry room from the garage he wrapped his paws around my leg and bit the back of my calf.  I called the vet to make arrangements to have him euthanized.  That is twice in 6 weeks.  I am done.  We have to keep him in quarantine for 9 more days before we can put him down (or pay the state an extra $50 to test for rabies) then John can drop him off.  Our vet was very understanding about it, we can't keep a cat that is randomly biting anyone.  He stopped being a pet a long time ago--but it still sucks.
Miss Thing is all moved in.  It was a teary goodbye.....I wasn't expecting to tear up so much because it wasn't that hard to let Thing One move in her freshman year.  She is rooming with her best friend since middle school--and her boyfriend's dorm is abou[...]
