I keep losing track of the days this week. All day yesterday, it felt like Thursday. But when I got home, it felt like Tuesday. Today at work it felt like Friday for most of the day, except for the parts that felt like Monday. My brain keeps alternating between planning what I’m doing to do with my day off tomorrow and trying to figure out why I wouldn’t be working the day after.
I will be working tomorrow, by the way. And I don’t know for how long. I’m still playing ketchup with my documents. Closer and closer! But not there yet.
Justin and I started our health regimen again, too, just like Luke and Krista. This means that he’s running and I’m going to the gym/exercising at home and logging my food again. I’m hoping to drop a quick 10 pounds by the end of next month by working very hard keeping track of what I’m eating and being sure to exercise it off. Justin will, I’m sure, lose 10 pounds just by stepping outside in his tennis shoes. The ease with which men in their 20s lose weight is sometimes very frustrating. Oy!
Anyway, we’ve been at it for a couple days now and, can I say? I forgot how hard these first days are! So tired! So sore! Did I mention tired? Tired! And sore! I’m looking forward to the end of next month and being long past this extreme tiredness and surprising soreness. And hopefully my pants will be fitting better again by then, too, and that will be a huge relief. It’s hard to breathe!
I’m focusing on short-term goals for this at the moment—log my food, exercise, get through the week, hope to lose 10 pound in a month. If I try to think further out than that, I have troubles. Not that I couldn’t do the math out and everything; just that I’m frustrated about having to lose some of this weight over again and I don’t want to think about how long that’s going to take me. So I’ll think about these first couple pounds, up to the first 10, and later on, I’ll be able to think more long distance.
Not to worry that I don’t think about extended plans at all though. Work is offering a second health option plan next year that has an account associated with it that is, essentially, investing money to use for health purposes after retirement. We haven’t decided yet if that’s the option we’re going to use (there’s math to be looked at), but it sounds like an interesting opportunity. I can start putting money away now, pre-taxes, that can be used later, with no taxes involved in pulling the money out, to pay for poor health after retirement. Or put money away now for paying later when something big happens, medically. Like babies. (LATER. NOT NOW.) But I don’t know. We still have to look at the math.
Anyway, that’s pretty much what’s on my brain tonight. I tired and sore from my workout this afternoon. I’m working in the morning, but hopefully only until 2:00 or so. And then I’ve got the weekend! During which I think we’re going to look at rearranging some furniture. It’s exciting, ya’ll! 🙂
Actually, I’m really glad to have so little to write about today. I’ve needed some mundanity for a while. I hope you’re all having boring days, too! 😉
