I have finally put my foot down on myself. (Or atleast I’d like to think so) I’ve actually made it out to run multiple times within this past week. Say what?! You heard right. And thankfully, although runs are never all that pleasant, things are falling back into place quicker than expected. Pretty cool. I’m not busting out any crazy mileage or speed. Just taking it easy and taking it as it comes. I’m hoping to keep my motivation up and to stay healthy so I can keep running. I kind of laugh at that statement given I’ll never be 100% healthy. Hmmmm, what would be a better way to restate that? I’m hoping to keep my motivation up and use that to overcome discomfort and any mental blocks. Better? Sounds good to me.
Changing subjects, but not really…..I’m doing pretty well with my endo. There’s no doubt that it’s there on a daily basis, but for the most part I can deal with it. As for the bills, well, they’re still a comin’. I’d like to say I can see an end since I’ve met my “out-of-pocket,” but by the time I even get close to paying it off the new calendar year will start. What does that mean? I start all over from $0 paid towards my deductible/out-of-pocket. Although David’s insurance isn’t perfect, it’s better than mine. I’d love to be on his plan, but if my job offers coverage I have to take it…my job does offer coverage. I could add his as a secondary insurance but that would be an additional $100+ a month. Ouch. We’re trying to weigh the pros and cons, and believe it’d be best to pick it up as secondary, but when you don’t have that $100 to fork over every month (no matter if you’re healthy or not), it’s not going to happen.
Enough about money/insurance woes. I’m happy to be back out pounding pavement and will take advantage of the high it’s giving me.
Dancing is a release for me. I’ve been known to turn music on and dance around the house on a nightly basis….even if I’m alone. (Although our pets make excellent dance partners) I’ve also been known to watch choreographed dances online and teach myself the steps. (Gotta love YouTube) And you know if there’s dancing going on, I’ll be there……Even if it’s after a 5K run:While on our cruise last year one of the activities coordinators knew me as the “Dancing Queen.” I’m guessing that because I joined in every dance activity I could. From line dancing on the pool deck to the 70′s Dance Party…… I’ve had many occasions when people have asked me, “How much have you had to drink??” And everytime I say, “Nothing.” Ha! Do I look that bad?! Meh, who cares. If music is on, you’ll probably see me bobbing my head, and soon enough it probably won’t be too long before I start to bust out in dance. I’ll admit, I’m not the best dancer in the word, but I find it enjoyable. I get in my own little world and am as happy as can be.Today’s thought of the day…..
