I hurt my back. It wasn't due to form or anything like that, the coach said something to me and I looked at him while swinging. This is something I do a lot (not hurt my back, but turn my head while working out) and is probably one of this biggest things I need to work on. I took some Advil this morning and am going to follow up with some Aleve in a few hours for the ride home. It's not horrible, but it's going to be an issue with the amount of sitting I do for work.

 

I took some Advil this morning for pain relief / inflammation decrease. I am now drowsy. This should be fun!

 

NOOOOOO! Dangit...you were just trying to make sure you listened to the coaching tips! I've done this before without thinking too, Sylvaa, but it was generally fine a couple days later. I'm pretty aggressive with my "i have a kink in my neck" rehab. I massage and take a lacrosse ball to the spot that's sore relegiously until I start to feel some pain relief. Sending healing vibes your way!! Maybe take shorter but more frequent breaks today so you're not sitting for long periods??

 

It's been exciting to read about your Adventures with Crossfit :)

But apparently, things like being concerned about co-workers dietary restrictions is going above and beyond instead of just being a good person?

To be fair, my new PM can't eat soy, so she has a lot of the same dietary restrictions that I do, so it's not like I'm going too far out of my way. But if we are all supposed to be going out to eat together, it makes sense to make sure that everyone can eat before we decide on a restaurant, right? This is common sense and makes sure I don't get hangry. 

 

Luckily, since I drink a lot of water, I HAVE to get up regularly to pee. So I am definitely taking a lot of breaks anyway!

Okay, I'm gonna need specific films here for reference. Like...Snake Eyes? City of Angels? 8MM? I really liked him in Bringing Out the Dead. And my paramedic friend said that was the most accurate movie he has ever seen. Wait..you're probably talking about Leaving Las Vegas? Gone in Sixty Seconds?

Out of everything in my thread, this is what you get stuck on? con Air, The Rock, Gone in Sixty Seconds. Yes, those years. 

 

Work drama and smelling cinnamon bread is making me cranky this morning. I need more coffee.

I suppose I should challenge wrap up a bit - even though I never end in the same place I began.

 

Work stress really put a damper in working towards goals, but overall I did really well. We ended up getting sign off on our number before the end of our fiscal year, which is a huge deal.  But trying to balance two demanding projects is super hard and by the end of last week, I was kind of done. Luckily, nothing will be signed off in July, so I have the next six weeks to tackle my current project and get ahead of the curve on my previous project (I'll still be tracking until about October, just not to the magnitude I have been currently). 

 

With all that going on, I still managed to go on a few runs on the road and at home AND sign up for a Crossfit gym. The current gym plan will be to go M and Tu night, then Thu morning. The little tweak to my back is pretty much okay now, it wasn't like an injury, so I'm still planning on going tonight, but will modify if necessary. 

 

What did suffer was school. Going to the gym meant being social afterwards and not getting to the hotel until after 9. Not only did this hurt my school goals, but it significantly depleted my social mana. Luckily, my co-workers are very accepting of this (and will be going in the mornings). 

 

The most success I have had is on the belly front. I've pretty much eliminated all grains (I still need to play around with Quinoa to see how that goes). I've pretty much figured out it is not related to gluten. I'm fairly confident that I have an intolerance to a preservative or other added ingredient). I feel better, which is always the goal, but I am a bit bummed that my scale batteries died and I've not remembered to get replacements. 

 

Also, I've taken my son out driving twice and not died, so there is that.

Actually, our dog is Molasses - Molly for short. 

All of our pets for years have been named after food.  Go figure, right?   Right now I have cat named Pepper and a dog named Cookie.  My previous cats were Jasmine and Sage, and we had a dog named Oreo, and a dog named Ruffles (who had a litter of puppes.  I can't remember all of their names but there was cocoa, sugar, cinnamon, and Butterball for sure).  My mom's dog's name is also Potato but we call him 'Tater.  My sister's cat's name is Toast.

My pets have somehow mostly had human names. I've had a Mandy (dog), a Jake (cat) and a Luna (cat). Then Zoe (cat), and my current cat is Charlie. I was perusing the cats to adopt at the local shelter, and saw they had a mature, friendly tom named Curtis. I was heading for Costco (next to the shelter) to do some pre-Thanksgiving shopping & thought, "I ought to stop at the shelter and adopt Curtis. I could just walk up to the counter and say 'I'm here to pick up Curtis.'" That tickled me and I nearly did it - except then I came to my senses and realized that with my parents coming in, and dealing with holiday stuff, the last thing I needed was to have two male cats stress-spraying all over the place. 

 

Still kind of sorry I didn't go get him, though. He'd already been adopted when I checked a few days later.

Nooooooo, what a sad story!! Charlie and Curtis could have been friends.

Finally found why my Spider Sense was tingling all week. Somebody was talking my language.

 

I think I got my current job from how I answered the interview question of what genre of movie is my favorite. I answered anything titled Con Air.

 

Now I'm just waiting for my next paycheck and for the Cage Cage Shorts to be back in stock.
