I suppose I forgot to tell you before you watched my vlog, it was still me just wearing my glasses because it was early. I don’t put in my contacts a lot in the morning unless I’m working out. In fact, I wear my glasses often. I like to pretend I’m intelligent sometimes. I think it confuses people. But anywho-
Last night we made Crockpot chicken. I didn’t even know there was such a thing until…well now. I personally like chicken fat (along with steak fat) so it is easy for me to scoop it all out and god knows no one else wants it and thinks I’m disgusting so it works out well. We served it over kale, random greens, eggplant, squash and mushrooms. So good.
After an incredible journey with Anna up north to the train station (because our lives are so fun)-I came home and went to bed.
But not without having a chat with my leg. Oh do you think I’m joking because my I frequently do. I asked for forgiveness to the running gods of my ostrich ways and that I would rather go back to that bird style of movement versus my penguin walking.
Well my little tendon listened to me as now I walk a little bit normally. As normal as I am though. It was such a big day for me seriously with that because I am not supposed to be walking this well until later in the week.
But on today!
I slept in until 8:30. I think I finally caught up on some rest.
Now here is the only negative Nancy part of my day. I went to the gym to see if I could do some of those elliptical (or cycle I guess…) and they all hurt my knee. As in if I did them, I would be where I was on Saturday. It was rather frustrating since the doctor told me those wouldn’t cause me pain. So after I cried and got all that jazz out of the way I decided I would just come back and swim when the pool was open. Good thing I didn’t wear makeup today.
Like I said. I’m not going to frill it up and say that this is fun or easy and I’m happy and having the greatest time of my life. I’m an emotional sap and I will cry when needed.
But during my time of waiting for open swim and since I’m an art major, I made myself a motivational poster so that I can really see where I’m trying to go. Don’t worry…if you ever need one. I got your back. For me, I need to keep telling myself workout hard now will just cause me more pain later. Would I rather be in pain now or more pain later…
But then I went for a 5000 meter swim and I felt so freaking good. I’m currently writing this blog 30 minutes later so it’s probably why I’m in such a good mood. I really think it might have even stretched out my tendon a little more and I can walk even better.
Anywho more updates on my familia front. AKA the broski. He called home yesterday for the first time! He gets one 5 minute phone call each Sunday. Sad story I will miss it next week but we are letter writing and he gets his laptop. So more communication! Matt-you have so much catching up to do. Just kidding!
They seem to take a lot of pictures of you enjoying yourself Matt.
Incase you wondered, in Matt’s company of 36 people…already 10 have dropped out. Holy schmee-I guess it isn’t all fun in games. He is a little cray cray but then again so am I. 😉
Question for you:
- Do you wear glasses?
- Do you ever go boating?
