Catching up on some things at the library. I am getting closer to the ‘net at home; probably in the next couple of weeks. Yay! I got behind on my 31 Miles to Halloween challenge, but have been making the push this week to catch up my miles. I should just squeak by. Finished C25K w1d2 with J. yesterday, & we will finish the week up tomorrow. Yay again! The prize for October was to be spearmint teas & related goodies, based on my previous article about tea for PCOS. I have it together, but decided to wait to until I can be more active here before posting it.
So, on to the meat here. A couple of friends posted this on fb & I got it in the EF newsletter today, so I figured why not. It’s a fairly brief article, as most of their stuff is, & does a good job of summing the issue up.
Alas I am still without internet at the new place, but I’m trying to get the owner motivated in that direction. Sadly, he’s old & doesn’t care much for technology.
Did C25K wk 2, but a friend wants to start now so I’m starting over. I have been taking my housemate’s dog with me.
Hope you are all doing wonderful & planning on having a happy Halloween.
Still no interwebs at the house. Looks like it’s going to be a couple of weeks. Changed the password to my blog on my phone, but it didn’t sync to my laptop OS & I couldn’t find out where it was hidden on my phone’s OS. Finally figured it out today. Brains! They’re not just for zombie snacks. So here I am with a very quick share for running week.
Have not been exercising because I’ve been in OMGChange mode, plus lazy, plus it has stormed all week so I haven’t gotten outside. I need to get out & stalk a new running/walking area this weekend because I do still intend to start C25K on Monday. I found the gym here, but then remembered I left my gym key with my dad because he’s working on my car. I could go during office hours, but from their fb page the new manager seems all grrgrr gymgym weightsweights don’t be a big fat loser person so I’m just going to hide out until I get my key. I’m pretty sure moving has to count for something as exercise.
From Lemongrass (which I’m allergic to btw) at Salty Running, five things she’s learned/remembered about running from her kids.
“There are as many reasons for running as there are days in the year, years in my life. But mostly I run because I am an animal and a child, an artist and a saint. So, too, are you. Find your own play, your own self-renewing compulsion, and you will become the person you are meant to be.”
I got moved yesterday. Had my intake at the county MHC here today & see my new therapist later this week. I also began the process of getting signed up with vocational rehab, so hopefully I can get a job here. Sadly, there is no internet at the house yet, so I’m writing this from the library where I have to wear pants, & it’s hella cold, so this will be brief.
Since I’ll be starting C25K next Monday, I’ve decided to focus on running this week. Yay!
Had a good week, except Saturday. Saturday got away from me, but that’s okay. The sun’ll come out tomorrow. It’s only a day away.
Have five miles in on my 31 Miles to Halloween challenge & held my first drawing this week. Have some extra goodies to toss in the box & it will be in the mail Monday. Hurray! I’m getting October’s prize together now & will be announcing it in a couple of weeks.
I found this great letter on HuffPo via Aaron Flores’ fb page. It’s a letter from a nutritionist to her clients who want their kids put on restrictive diets so they can be thin. Instead of diets she encourages intuitive eating & helping their child develop a healthy relationship with food.
Yeah, I don’t know what that raccoon is doing either, but it’s entertaining in an off-the-wall, WTF kind of way.
Now for the big announcement!
The winner of the first of my monthly giveaway series is…. Sherrie!
I’ll be getting that in the mail ASAP along with some surprise goodies. :D
I’ll be announcing October’s prize in a couple of weeks. Thanks for participating, guys!
