Can’t think of a good post name…

Last week I had a little chest cold followed by an ear infection. I’m on antibiotics and feeling better each day. I had taken about a week and a half off of exercise, but am already back on track. On Sunday we went to circuit training class, on Monday I did a 8-9 mile walk, and Tuesday I did the power sculpt class. I’m pretty sore today, but thinking of going for a swim.   😛

School is going fine. One of my teachers is about 4 weeks behind on grading…. so I don’t know how I’m doing in that class, but as far as I know, I’m acing everything. Three classes are not as challenging as I thought they would be. I find myself pretty lonely and bored lately. I guess I’m starting to feel the weight of not working. I really miss the social interaction and physical activity of being at work, not to mention the daily routine. I just keep reminding myself that there’s only a few more months of school and then I can get back to a normal life. In the future I’ll probably look back at these relaxing days and I wish I could do it again….. Isn’t it funny how we often want what we don’t have?!?

I’ve started working on a puzzle for something else to do around the house. The poor kitty doesn’t understand why I don’t want him walking back and forth all over it. He’s also all kinds of confused about his diet. He has some mysterious medical condition that makes his calcium levels much too high. The prescription food we’ve been feeding him for a few years apparently makes it worse (but he’s in a tiny of percentage of cats that this happens to, so the vet couldn’t have known). Anyways, now we’re supposed to be feeding him canned food that’s high in protein. He loves the food, but is hungry soon after. And he is ANNOYING when hungry! Yancy’s doing research to find better food options and even considering making homemade food… which grosses me out.

Speaking of food, I’m still working on my February challenge of no milk or cheese. I’ve cheated a few times, but still can’t believe how often I was consuming dairy. My acne is clearing up (which could also have something to do with the antibiotics), and my stomach seems pretty happy, so I think I’ll continue this, but maybe not as strict. I’m still trying to decide what to focus on for March. I’m thinking of turning the focus to movement/exercise. But I’m also wanting to increase vegetables and decrease meat in my diet. I like the idea of spending one month focusing on a certain aspect of my health. Maybe I’ll continue it through all of 2013.

I’ll be back soon to post pictures of my long walk on Monday.  🙂
