Commentary: Of course, I commit to daily journaling, and then I’m so busy I don’t have time to journal. Except I wasn’t exactly busy.
For about seven-ish months or so I’ve been working in both the operations and training departments at work. In the beginning, it was a shit show. I had no idea if I’d be doing operations or training stuff when I came to work, so I couldn’t plan a damn thing. It was beyond frustrating. For the past couple of months, I’ve been able to focus on training, and it’s been wonderful.
Tuesday was one of those days when they sucked me back into operations. No big deal. But one of the reasons I hate operations is that half of our “working” involves sitting around and waiting. That’s why I was busy and not busy, which made it a silly day.
Anyway, enough complaining. On to the exercise-related stuff!
During my run, my funky toenail started throbbing. I could feel all sorts of pressure. My run was supposed to be five miles, but I cut it short at 45 minutes so I could deal with my toenail. I had to reopen the hole to drain the fluid. This time the fluid was more viscous, sticky, and yellow. Eew. But it felt better after draining all the fluid, so that’s positive.
After work that evening I had a mini breakdown. A combination of little things and hormones (thanks monthly cycle!) had me crying as I got ready for my strength workout. I started feeling better after the first set between good tunes and working out. By the end of the workout, I was back to normal.
Evening strength training means I get little time to relax before bed. I’m also back to drinking Huel for dinner on doubles days so I’m not stuffed when I go to bed. Oh, and speaking of food, I splurged a bit at work and had a small piece of pie and a small cup of eggnog. It’s hard for me to resist when it’s sitting right in front of me.
Endlessly seeking adventure.
