Ok, I donít even know who I am anymore *cue over dramatic music here*
This motivation thing is crazy because I havenít felt it in such a long time so it seems so unlike me (which is probably the really sad part). I mean Iím really grateful but itís just so weird to me. So this morning I was so tired when my alarm went off, my neck is really hurting from the kink in my neck and my muscles are tense from holding it in a weird way as to not have it hurt more and I so did not want to get up to work out. So in my sleepy head I was like Ďuh, Tae Bo is so not gonna happen today crazy lady, back to bedí. I reset my alarm clock for an hour later and closed my eyes to go back to sleep. That did not last longer then it took me to close my eyes. So I got up and I did 4 miles with Miss Leslie Sansone and it felt really good. I got my new heart rate monitor yesterday (Polar FT4, $60 on Amazon) so I wore it for the first time in this mornings workout (that also helped me get up outta bed because I really wanted to give it a spin).
Look how super cute it isÖ.
Anywho so Iím all packed for camp (mostly, I still have a list going of things I need to remember to grab when I stop home before Iím off for the weekend. I did decide to get some of those Starbucks drinks to take with me so Iíll be prepared with energy without all the calories. Oh and did I tell you that Andrew is taking care of Meow for me while Iím gone this weekend? Giving him the shots and all? Heís the best I tell you. Seriously. Iím a lucky girl. He came over last night and I gave him all the details and showed him how to do the shots. I made us some naan pizzas, which were super delicious by the way. I did eat a total of 1400 calories yesterday but that still isnít terrible (that dame delicious naan pizza was a bit more then I thought it would be but that is why tracking calories and actually seeing the total is so important).
Oh and speaking of my little boo boo Meow, he had another vet visit yesterday afternoon. He actually fought me going in to the cage (he used to be a beast trying to get him in but lately has been too weak to fight me on it) so while annoying I was happy to see that. Means heís getting stronger. Then he was purring like crazy at the vet while I was holding him which was so nice to hear. He even gained a pound over the last week and a half! Heís got a ways to go but Iíll take the improvement. He used to be 12 pounds and over the last 6 months he has dropped to 5 pounds. Poor skinny baby. So she tested his blood sugar and it was 324 which is much better then 600 it was on the first test but still not where it should be. So next Friday he has an all day appointment where they will test his blood every 2 hours and get a better idea of how the insulin dose is doing for him. I canít tell you how happy I am to see improvement with him. I know his time is still limited but when you have a 14-15 year old cat you assume you donít have a super long time with him left. Although I had myself convinced he was going to live to 20 but I realize now that isnít going to happen. To have a while longer with my buddy and now knowing he is feeling better just makes me really happy! Oh here is Meow and me while we waited for the vet. Who I decided is my new best friend because of how often I see her now and how sweet she is and how much she has helped Meow :)
So Iím in a fabulous mood and so ready for this weekend. I hope everyone is having a fantastic day and has an even better weekend!
