Random Thursday

Last night a slept horribly and I was up for the day at 4:30. In addition to the news about Maddie Spohr the last week has included news that one of M's classmate's mom's lost twins. The whole thing had me waking up all night thinking this shouldn't be happening. So tonight, some random items, mostly exercise related.

I have had my asthma/allergy meds for three days, who knew that breathing through both nostrils was possible.

Even though I've had them for three days, I've only remembered to take my asthma meds once before I exercised like I am supposed to.

Without taking them, and just walking, I'm averaging under 20 minutes/mile. Not bad for a fat girl like me. With some running it should get better, just have to remember the meds.

Once I'm down to a 12-15 minute mile, I'll add another 1/2 mile. That seems reasonable, right?

I may need to take the dog off of diet food or up what she's getting. She keeps trying to eat everything on our walk. I realized that drastically increasing her activity level is going impact her weight/caloric needs as well.

I have worked out all four weekdays this week so far. I've changed my sidebar stuff to keep it from getting out of hand. I'll just update the week's summary every day that applies and then switch to monthly at the end of each month. Three months for a habbit, six months for a life change. That would be June for my diet changes and August for the exercise. I can do it.

M turns two on Sunday, it should be interesting since she still doesn't quite understand the birthday thing and this year no party thanks to Easter. We are keeping it low key, staying home and just doing stuff as a family. I think I am going to push for breakfast at Mickey's Diner. We went there last year for Easter, and the year before for Easter when I was super pregant with her. Because it is a holiday, it isn't too busy, and the omlets can't be beat.
