Super unenthusiastic about life. I dreamt about this jewelry organizer from the Container Store that my awesome mom bought me this weekend. One of my many weirdnesses is that I love just having things put away, rather than actually worrying about organization. Out of sight, out of mind is definitely my motto. So my mom buying that sweet organizer meant that my jewelry box no longer looks like a war zone. It has almost enough spots for all my earrings, necklaces, and some bracelets (her Easter gift to me was more earrings!). So you'd think dreaming about it would have been an enjoyable experience. That was very much not the case. It was an oddly stressful dream where I like couldn't find the right combination of shirt and necklace. Very weird. Long story short, I woke up feeling like I got hit by a bus.

This weekend was overall good. I got a lot accomplished, but Andrew was gone for most of it so the quiet of the apartment got to me at the end. Saturday morning we went for a hike around a big lake sort of near where we live with a group from work. It was about a 7.5 mile loop so I was scoping it out as a running route. Verdict: probably a good route if it hasn't rained recently. It had been/was still rainy on Saturday morning so there was a lot of jumping over creeks and walking through mud. Our little group saw the same runner go by twice while we went around the lake once, and everyone marveled at him. I know I'm not the queen of the long run, but I was still a little proud that people were impressed with how far he was running, and I could say to myself that I had run that far too (I'm assuming he was doing 15 miles... not 22.5 or more :) ) The rest of Saturday was spent shopping and eating.

Yesterday was a day of rest... except not. I spent my Easter morning by myself, baking banana bread muffins and cleaning cleaning cleaning. The floors seriously needed scrubbing, as did the bath tub, and laundry was calling my name. The apartment was much better when it was done, I'm not sad when I walk in the kitchen anymore. In my cleaning frenzy, I also went to my parents house and used their garage to vacuum out my car, which was getting pretty grassy/muddy, and I half-heartedly helped weed the garden. I decided to classify all these activities as my 'workout' for the day, because I definitely was working hard, and by the time all was said and done, the day was basically gone and I was super tired.

We just got our results for the 'biometric' screening from last week. I have slightly high body fat (measured by impedance), but good cholesterol and blood pressure levels. Also, my blood glucose was LOW... 63 when the lower limit is 75. The internet seems to indicate that this is not really a big problem, just means I need to eat more frequently. This is not news to me.

Today I will... who knows. It's going to be pushing 90 today, so I'm not sure an outside afternoon run is in the cards. I'm thinking intervals at the gym, because I haven't done that in a while and I sort of like intervals on the treadmill.

Food for today:
breakfast: the new normal- banana, cheerios, egg
snack: apple, banana muffin
lunch: leftover pizza hut and veggies
afternoon snack: orange? not a lot of snack because there's a lot of pizza
dinner: tbd- tacos?
