I’m smiling because the sun is finally shining here in Michigan! Unfortunately it came out way too late. I’m moving to South Carolina next week! I’m really excited about it. The sad part is that it’s only for 3-4 months, so I guess I can’t really say I’m “moving” there, just “living” there. I don’t even know what to call it. I’ve been doing a lot of research on the internet and talking to some people down there. I want to make the best of the trip. I plan on visiting all kinds of places and exploring the treasures of South Carolina. I was thinking about doing a blog post of all the places I want to visit while I’m there. What do you think? Maybe you can add to it!
This weekend is the calm before the storm. I have a lot of packing to do next week, a drive to Chicago to our storage unit, a drive to Iowa to drop off some things and pick up some things, and then a drive to South Carolina. I’m contemplating on staying in Iowa for a little longer and just meeting Jeremy in South Carolina later. I’ll just see how things go. The weather and beauty are pulling me towards the South!
Yesterday night after finishing up work and some other things around the place, I headed to the gym. To be honest, I didn’t even want to go. Jeremy was like “you’ll regret it” and “just come with me”, so I was guilt tripped there, but after I finished my workout I was happy that I did. Sometimes it takes an extra push out the door.
When I’m not in the mood to workout, running gets boring. I either have to be all in it or I dread it. I did a walk/run workout to keep it entertaining and light. This was a workout that I did to lose weight and to improve my running back in the day. It’s really simple! You can change the speeds and times to fit your fitness level. It helps to watch T.V. while you’re on the treadmill so you don’t get bored!
Yesterday after dinner, the pain in my right heel kept coming back. I couldn’t understand where the pain was coming from because there was no blister, bruising, or cuts. I also noticed my right shoes were fitting differently. The crazy thing is that I can still run and it doesn’t bother me. I decided to take a picture so I could see the back of my foot. I noticed that the right bone or tendon was poking out and curving. Now, I can be a hypochondriac sometimes, so I posted it on my Instagram to see if anyone else saw what I was seeing and the certainly did. I am going to make a doctor’s appointment as soon as I get back in Iowa.
I have an embarrassing addiction thanks to my mom. I can’t stop playing Candy Crush! I told her she was silly for playing it and then I found myself stealing her phone to beat her levels. I decided to download it on my phone and now I haven’t been able to stop.(only when it makes you) I even stopped writing this post when my phone told me I had more lives…but on the plus side, I can thank Candy Crush for waking me up this morning. I couldn’t fall back asleep after 5am, and I decided to go to the Saturday morning spin class. I needed to do something other than the treadmill. It’s still way too cold to run outside and I’m getting so bored of running on that machine! I have never burned so many calories after an hour spin class. I had a different instructor this morning and she kicked butt! Looks like I’ll be diving into extra ice cream tonight! Booooya!
After class, I came home and took Mr. Grumples for a quick walk. I worked a little this morning on organizing my receipts and tax papers while eating breakfast. I had two hard boiled eggs, a Greek yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, whole grain toast with peanut butter, and mixed nuts. I live for mornings and find them so peaceful. There is nothing better than being the only one awake, drinking coffee in silence, and getting work done.
