after Tough Mudder, Brian and I got sick (he’s still struggling with his ear infection); shortly after that, I hurt my shoulder somehow. and then for at least a month before all that, my car was constantly in and out of the shop for one reason or another.
well, things are finally starting to settle down. I’m going back to 9Round (my cardio kickboxing classes) as of yesterday. I’m eating more healthily and am tracking it again (with the exception of chewing gum). I’m starting back on my Duolingo to re-learn Spanish for work. I’m getting up and going to bed at somewhat regular times. et cetera, et cetera.
which is good. because my weight and fitness are horrid at this point. I’m only twenty pounds lighter than my boyfriend who is over six inches taller than me and has a stockier build. twenty pounds — that’s all. that’s not enough. I’ve really let myself go.
I snack too much, for one thing. I used to either have dinner or snack, not both. I need to get back into that system. or into something. I just need to do better.
I finally got around to doing chores at the apartment. it had been at least two weeks since it really got the attention it needed, due to our being so ill and icky. but this past weekend, we both did a lot of chores. (thank you, Brian!)
I’m hoping (as ever) to get onto a blogging schedule. it’s just hard with my life schedule changing so much.
I need to do some creative writing. I haven’t done that in ages. because I know I suck at it these days — and I hate doing things at which I’m no good.
work’s okay. ups and downs. almost done finding a bunch of bookkeeping and client-balance errors, which has been my big personal project. when I thanked one of the attorneys (the one is not either partner), he thanked me in return because apparently none of the Office Managers before me ever bothered to sort this stuff out. so that made me feel competent. 🙂
I suppose that’s it for now. I have one more big piece of news, but there are pictures that go with it that I don’t have access to at the moment. so we’ll hold off on that update for a little bit…
