Busy busy busy.... haha, not really.

Wazzup? It is yet again midnight, and I am still not asleep, despite the fact that I have a 9 am appointment for physical therapy. Why do I do this to myself?

So my sister sent me this text today: "YOU DIDN'T BLOG TODAY YET! I'm literally crying because I don't know what's going on in your life!!!!!" I love my sister <3  My response was, "I didn't know I was required to blog every day. I don't know if my life is that interesting..." But she assured me that, yes, I will find SOMETHING to talk about. So here it is. Just for you, lil' sis.

Today I had a fairly busy day, considering that I have been sitting around recently. I was supposed to wake up and go to this knitting thing, but it was optional (duh) and I just couldn't drag myself out of bed. So I slept in a bit longer and woke up at 10 am. I had lunch with my best friend at noon, which was fun. We talked about our planned weekend.

Which reminds me - my 21st birthday is this Sunday! For those of you non-Americans, you can (finally) drink legally at age 21 in the US. My best friend and I are planning to go out on Saturday night so that I can order my first drink at 12:01 AM on my birthday. Should be fun! Then we are going to have her parents pick us up, so that we don't have to drive after drinking, and have a sleepover.

Anyhoo, after lunch, I had an appointment with my psychiatric meds prescriber. She upped my Lamictal to 300 mg (from 200 mg) after I told her that I had been depressed for half of the semester. I guess that I'm so used to being depressed, that it didn't seem out of the ordinary for me. I will pick up that prescription tomorrow. Then I came home and went to the gym.

It's been pretty good having a gym membership so far! Yesterday I went for the first time. I just biked a little and used the stretching area. Today I biked and did the elliptical (mostly because they have ellipticals with TVs attached to them!!), and I did some arm weights. I did a lot of exploring of the facility today, and got a feel for what I like to do. I am trying to focus more on how I feel and less on how many calories I'm burning. Lucky for me, I no longer remember how many calories biking burns. Thank goodness for my Dory brain! I am sore today from yesterday's workout, and I will definitely be sore tomorrow... Since my workout, I have been vegging out in front of the TV. Lame, I know.

My toe is doing well. It doesn't look as gross as it did the first day, which is good, and it's not bleeding anymore. It doesn't really hurt either, unless I touch the spot where there is no toenail anymore. The soaking and re-bandaging twice a day is getting old though... and I have to keep doing it for two weeks! Grr. I hope it heals nicely, so I have something to show for all this.

Ok, I really, really need to sleep. I need to stop staying up late and actually get to bed at a decent hour. Good night :)

  1. I love you sister for making you blog! :D

    I reckon you should go to the gym 4 days a week MAX if you're training for a specific purpose, 3 a week if not. You need to give your muscles time to recover or serious OWOWOWOWOOOOOOW!!! and ED spazzign will ensue. I'm putting on my growly face here!

    Keep your toe clean! GRRRR!
