Hey guys! SOrry its been a while. It's been a super stressful week. My whole class went to hilton head for this anesthesia conference and I decided to stay back for a few reasons ($, and others). It was nice because I got to spend more time with the husband and puppy! But we had a lot of other stuff going on as well.
We decided that it was time to sell my car. It has 130k miles on it....the trunk doesnt stay open anymore..and I will need to drive it across the country in a few months for clinical rotations. NExt year I will be staying in cities like Washington DC and St Louis and my husband isn't comfortable with me being there with that car. Or even trying to get there. So we sold my celica (I'm really sad...I part with her today...and I might cry). We got quite a bit of money for her. And there will be a new member in the family as of this saturday..................................Sally..............Mustang Sally....
Shes really pretty. But we have to go to Orlando to pick her up this weekend. Basically she was only $2000 more than we got for the celica..so we are using our tax refund. This way we won't have any car payments. YAY! I'm so pumped to have a convertible! :)
Also on Monday I went and had a deep tissue massage. SOmething the hubby got me as a birthday gift. What an amazing hubby right?? Ughh..it was unbelievable. ANd ever since that, I've been obsessed with drinking ice water with cucumer slices in it. Its sooooo fresh and good. You should try it.
On the workout front....I need to take a step back. Suddenly, this is all starting to feel like a chore. It is adding to my stress load. I went for a run yesterday...and I was trying so hard to run fast that I wasn't enjoying myself at all. Finally I stopped and walked.......and decided the rest of the run I was going to run for "fun"....and not worry about speed. I enjoyed it so much better that way. When I first starting running it was an outlet for me. ALmost therapuetic. It took stress away and made me feel unbelievable. Ever since the marathon and sorta wrecking up my legs a bit...I've just been struggling with trying to make my legs go faster and faster and faster. I need to take a step back....bad. This cannot be something adding to my stress level. My life is too crazy......it needs to be therapy. So there ya have it. I'm going to slow down and enjoy myself. I'm not going for a PR in CLeveland...I'm going to Cleveland to see my family and friends. I have not been home in a year since I got married and moved for graduate school. The half marathon is something I'm doing for fun that weekend, but I'm more focused on seeing loved ones.
Hope this makes sense.
