Well that’s new. Some surprises are just not that fun.

I did it. I just stayed home, hung around working on business and blog stuff and being lazy and doing nothing and eventually…

my headache subsided. ThankyouGodforbigfavors.

So tonight I headed out for a run and thought I’d do about 4-4.5 miles…well I got three miles done and started in on the fourth mile and for the first time ever in the history of this fun little disease…

I got Celiaced. (it’s a word).

My stomach rebelled SO FAST and SO BAD I came to a dead stop after mile three and grabbed my stomach and thought…oh no. Oh that’s not good. I do not feel well at all.

I walked the last mile back to the car and came straight home only to be really really ill.

I mean, I got a good three miles in plus so that’s the saving grace here. This is just a sad little side effect of what I live with and hey, there’s a lot of runners that deal with this and they don’t have Celiac so I think I’m lucky I have made it this long without the issue rearing its ugly head.

Damn. I hope it goes away soon.

Today I’m calling a client back and hoping to get ahold of her because ~damntheiphone~ and also accepting the iphone as part of the family. Maybe a ceremony. I accept you. I welcome you in the family. Sigh. damn phone.

I guess it’s time for a phone case. And a cover.

it’s pretty…like a little piece of jewelry.

Can you hear me telling myself to like it?

I’m reading Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?: And Other Questions You Should Have Answers to When You Work in the White Houseby Alyssa Mastromonaco and Lauren Oyler

I love it and so far highly recommend it. It’s not deep and intense, it’s just a great read about what it’s like when your girlfriend works at the White House.

Today I’m going to get my nails done, do some quick grocery shopping and then head to Castle Rock to do the incline…providing my stomach is agreeable. I have meds if it isn’t because it’s going to be a gorgeous day…74*!

Squats…and planks…

I think it’s time for the plank challenge. I just need to put a widget on my website and damn if I can figure out how to do it.
It just takes me sitting still for longer than 12 minutes…

Well it finally happened.

You’ll all be happy to know I got a new phone yesterday. My kids especially since they were fed up with my “brick”.
We went in to the store and the young woman that helped me could not really contain her amusement at the age of my old phone even though I told her it was an older model when I bought it because I specifically asked for the small size phone. I think she just assumed I don’t know any better.

She told me she used to like the small screens too, then she graduated up and now she will never go back…

Chick. I’m not just anybody here. I refuse to conform.

You can imagine my non conforming joy that I now own an iphone.

I know, right? It was the only phone that was exactly the size of my old one. I had to at least try it.

Shut up, I told you we’re still adjusting. We both stopped multiple times yesterday and thought…huh…we have two weeks.

It’s a pretty big adjustment and Sean and I are already not loving it but I don’t love being told what to do and Android let’s you do what you want. They are SO from MT and Apple, well, they’re all~do it our way and there are no consequences it’s just do it our way~. They are clearly from  Congress.
The jury is out, we’ll see. Bright side…good photos! I’ll keep you posted. I know, you guys are all ~no one in the world is as stressed about a new phone as you are, what the hell?~

Sean and I did the Castle Rock Incline yesterday. I did MUCH better than the last time. The last time, if you recall, I nearly died every three steps…gasping for air as I climbed pretty much thinking..”this is it! This is the big one!” ~name that really really REALLY old television show ….

Ugh…Redd Foxx…such a comedic talent.

So I got up the stairs without too much trouble from the lack of oxygen but my leg was definitely tweaked so I stopped multiple times to do preventative stretching and that seemed mostly successful. We walked some to warm up and cool down to keep loose (I’m a loose woman) but otherwise I that was it. I didn’t want to incline twice. Still babystepping it.

Sean somehow found himself the sole purchaser of the probiotics and in the land of Celiac probiotics keep my stomach happy. Nearly the last week has been a little iffy because I haven’t had any. His stomach is happier on them, too, so I reminded him several times until last night I finally said…Dude…get the probiotics. Twenty seconds later he said it was done.

Amazon for the win. And what the hell, it took you twenty seconds?
Send me that link so I can do it next time. Geez Dude.
Probiotics are important for  maintaining the balance of healthy bacteria and non healthy bacteria in your gut.

  • boosting immune system.
  • preventing and treating urinary tract infections.
  • improving digestive function.
  • healing inflammatory bowel conditions like IBS (4)
  • managing and preventing eczema in children.
  • fighting food-borne illnesses

Today’s workout is mileage. I’m going to do some strength training and about 3 miles. I know, still 3 miles? yep. I really really don’t want to push it. If things go as planned I’ll start moving up next week. I’m not letting myself get too excited in case it all comes crashing down…

Shut up…I totally don’t see the world half empty. I’m a genuinely positive soul always filled with joy and delight.

Fine. But only when it comes to my workouts…it’s been a tough year, okay??
