Good Morning people.
I know this is an early post but so far today I have been awake for 4 hours, got in a 30 minute swim, and made it to work on time today!!! What up, that is one freaking productive morning if you ask me. I got in bed early last night so it was no sweat to wake up on time. Organization is the key, all the clothes were packed and in the car, lunch put together (only had to be put in the bag), and breakfast on the go.
I have been swimming at night but I found myself skipping every now and then, especially on a hard day, because I had to take off my nicotine patch to get in the pool. (BTW, that is my way of telling you that I quit smoking!) I didn't want to put a new one on for just the end of the day so it was a strategic thing. Basically I have just turned things around backwards. I am swimming or getting cardio in the mornings, then another workout in the afternoon if I can with weights and more cardio.
I didn't expect this to take so long to figure out a new schedule but I think I am getting back in the swing of things. Swimming in the morning is not my favorite but it will just have to do for now. My hair looks stupid today and I smell like chlorine at work but I'm clean and here.
My food has been good, but only by default. I am still struggling with my stomach. I don't know what is going on. I have been to the doc once, he will be getting another call from me today, and we will just take if from there. Basically anything I eat hurts my stomach so I am eating very little. I just eat tid bits all day long to keep from having a full gut at any point of the day. Needless to say I am very hungry most of time, and when you quit smoking you are hungry (or you think you are) ALL THE TIME!!!!
I will hopefully figure out this stomach thing soon enough so I can get everything back to normal. I think once the stomach clears up, then my neck will stop hurting, cause of stress of wondering what the hell is wrong!!!!!! and I can get back to some of my workouts that I have steered clear of cause they hurt.
I really need to get back to my running. I am missing it more than I can even explain and I want to start back up. Let me just ask you this, I thought when time changed it would get dark early and the sun comes up earlier. But where is the sun. No sun at 6 am, sunset at 3:30pm. I wanna run in the day light!!!!!!! I need to get back to some bigger mileage runs cause the Oak Barrel Half Marathon is coming up and I would like to be prepared for it this year. Last year, not my best day, year before that, we all remember the shoes right?!?!?
I think this is all I have for you guys, I know, 19 paragraphs before 10am. Overachiever this morning, oh yeah! Tonight we have a ballgame and Biggest Loser all at the same time. Guess I'll just have to record tonight. I sprang for cable but not so much on the DVR yet, still old school for me but as long as I get to watch it I don't care.
Have a good day guys!
