Couch to 5K update. I’m in week 2 and it’s going pretty well so far. The running segments are short, so no issues with my leg yet or anything. Yay for that. This week is a brisk five-minute warmup walk. Then alternate 90 seconds of jogging and two minutes of walking for a total of 20 minutes (9 minutes of running). Then a 5 minute cool down. If we keep up with this warm weather, I might be able to move these sessions outside in the not too distant future!
Pixie update: Ms. Pixie is doing much better now. We were a little concerned because she just was taking so long to show any signs of feeling a lot better. I was carrying her to the litter pan a few times a day just to make sure she would go in her litter box and not just wherever she was since she was moving around very little. Today she finally has been walking around and seeming more like our normal Pixie. It was a big change overnight.
She is not happy with her new food and isn’t eating as much, but she has to get used to it. She has no choice. I’ve been giving her more wet food to try to entice her to eat more of something, but that isn’t working too well. When she gets hungry enough, she will start eating it.
I’ve been working extra for all the medical bills this month. We were just talking about how if we hadn’t already booked our tickets to Ireland, we might rethink going. However, I’m lucky in that I can log in over the weekend (or any time, really) and pick up extra work if it’s available. I complain a lot about my job — the management of it mostly, but one of the good things is that if I need extra money, I can usually get extra work to help out. I don’t have to ask. I can just do it. The only thing is that it burns me out. I’ve have worked at least some every single day for the past 14 days.
We did get out and do some shopping to take a break. I had some gift certificates to spend, so no guilt! Went to TJ Maxx and I found a real purty gazing globe for my garden:
And I have a couple dollars to spare on the gift card, too! Of course, we had to partake in this as well:
Relaxation comes in many forms 😀
The good thing about me doing extra work is that I get out of removing wallpaper! Yippee!!! John has been doing a great job and it’s almost gone!
Now to choose a color.
