It’s 8 o’clock and all is
well somewhat better! The sore throat and other symptoms are gone, but the cough remains. So I made the executive decision to put the heavy breathing exercises (aka Body Rock and Cto5k) to Monday and give my lungs a break. Taking a shower, changing out of my “sick” clothes, and generally cleaning up from my hermit routine helped a lot with the healthier feeling. Believe me, you didn’t want to see what I looked like. Imagine Snape’s greasy head of hair atop a sweatshirt/yoga pant wearing vagrant girl surrounded by two dogs on a couch and you might be close to a mental picture of my appearance for the past few days. After tidying up I finished today’s sit up workout (specifics seen below) and filled in all the yummy stuff I ate in my food journal.
Sit up workout details (Day 2, second column):
- 9, 12, 9, 9, 23; performed with 60 second break between reps
- 62 total
- I posted the link to my blog on Facebook yesterday and my friends came through in BIG way! The Navy and Me was visited 61 times in one day–the record before that was 19!–and 3 more people decided to follow my updates. Thank you so much to everybody who stopped by yesterday, you couldn’t have surprised me more with your turnout. Looking back, I probably shouldn’t have been so worried about sharing my posts on Facebook, but now that I know that it’s not the end of the world I’ll share all the time.
- Friday I will be getting my hair styled/cut (finally!) after chopping it off for the donation a week or so ago. I’m obviously going to let her give me some suggestions, but I think I want something like a mix between the two picture below. As I get closer to boot camp I’ll probably have my hair chemically straightened so I won’t have to worry about doing anything to it while I’m there.
Tomorrow’s post will be shorter since I’ve decided to push the running/interval training to next Monday, but I hope that all of you will still keep checking in! In the meantime, what are your thoughts on the blog so far? Are there things you’d like to see more or something that I haven’t been doing? How about the pictures and ideas for my haircut(s): thumbs up or down?
