Today’s Calendar Quote:Nature…makes nothing in vain.” — Aristotle

A bit of hiccup-y morning with the kiddo because I don’t think he slept all that well last night. Thankfully it evened out by the afternoon though. Going through an entire day like this morning would have been a real challenge.

I zipped out to the track this morning for a real quick run and just killed it pace-wise. I wanted to go longer, but tomorrow is leg day and didn’t want to destroy my legs beforehand. I’m planning on keeping my longer runs for either Monday or Tuesday evenings. Hopefully it works for the former so my legs get a day of rest before the next leg day.

Day 133 ~ feeling the loss of Zzz’s

Day 133 ~ March 21st, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: deradicalize ~ to free from radical ideas.

Today’s Calendar Quote:Stop talking and thinking and there is nothing you will not be able to know.” — Sengcan

A normal day for the most part I guess. I ran a few errands in the late morning/early afternoon and got a few things done around the house.

I’m still quite tired between Bolt (the puppy) and my son. One is up early and the other is often awake later than I would like. There is no getting to bed early for me most nights or sleeping in, in the mornings with the both of them mucking with my sleep schedule! I’m hoping Bolt will start to sleep longer in the mornings because come about 8 at night he is so bagged and just wants to sleep.


Day 130 ~ ticking off some of the ‘to do’ list

Day 130 ~ March 18th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: erubescent ~ a reddening or blushing.

Today’s Calendar Quote:It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away,
so that when I’ve gone and come back, I’ll find it at home.
” — Rumi

I will make the cookies I’ve had halfway prepped for quite some time today. I actually looked over the recipe and pulled the rest of the ingredients out so it makes sense to just get them done now. Here’s hoping that I get them done so I can stop shuffling the stuff around the kitchen counters haha

Day 129 ~ expansion headway

Day 129 ~ March 17th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: eggcorn ~ a word or phrase that is a seemingly logical alteration of another word or phrase that sounds similar.

This morning is the earliest morning yet with Bolt awake at about 3:30am…. By the evening I know I’ll definitely be feeling it and I likely be cranky. I can guarantee it’ll take me no time at all to fall asleep tonight when I finally get to bed.

Day 123 ~ queen of the “W” questions

Day 123 ~ March 11th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: Mx. ~ a title of respect prefixed to a person’s surname. Unlike Mr., Mrs., or Ms., it does not indicate gender.

I’m trying to figure out a way to digitize my recipes and so far can’t see to come up with a good plan. I was going to move to a cue card box, but I honestly don’t want to write all of them out on cards. But having them in a binder isn’t working out either. It’s tough to store and it gets dirty are my too biggest annoyances with it. Anyway I will continue with the brainstorming and hopefully I can come up with a great solution.

Day 116 ~ musical coffeepots… ?

Day 116 ~ March 3rd, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: pother ~ a commotion or fuss.

I decided to start lifting weights for the time being. I was missing it more than I thought I was I guess. I’m continuing with the Combat HIIT, but finishing the program on Level 3 is less important now. I’ll try to treat it as more of a warm-up before I start lifting. The ab days in the HIIT program are awesome, but the rest is not doing it for me. I should’ve gone with Power Cardio I think. Oh well, maybe do that one next.

Today’s Calendar Quote:Keep your heart clear and transparent and you will never be bound.” — Ryokan

All of the sunshine today and a fantastic morning with the kidlet so all-in-all a fantastic morning!

I had another appointment at the hospital this afternoon. It wasn’t intended to be a biopsy, but the doc informed that it was very likely considering my history. And it was good for a second there, but then after some hardcore scrapping she needed to take samples from two places. *Sigh* I want this all to be over… It’s been over a year and I need to see her again in 6 months providing my biopsies come back negative. Just… sucks…. I was hoping for better news.
