I made some very, very poor footwear choices on Saturday, and spent Sunday hobbling around with numb toes. I was afraid I was permanently damaged, but thankfully, I seem to be okay today. No amputation, what a relief.

Becka and I are also playing the Not Eating All The Things game again, and it's miserable. FML.

This was the first week of working out without the trainer, and I kind of miss that guy. It was nice to have someone talking nonsense while I was dying, to distract me from that dying. It was also nice to just do what I'm told, and not have to piece together some well-rounded workout program. The heaviest weights we have at home are 10lb, so I don't know what I'm going to do when I need to increase weight. Use my gym membership, I guess.

The other big headline of the week was that it fcking snowed. In Austin.

People tell me that this is super rare.

They also told me that about the crazy tornado that came through when I was on my first visit here, and when we had a hurricane, so it can only be so "super rare". I'm starting to feel like they're lying and/or I'm cursed.

Next week....

Monday - 30 squats
Tuesday - 3 miles, strength
Wednesday - squats
Thursday - 4 miles, strength
Friday - squats
Saturday - squats
Sunday - 7 miles, no squats!

When we were house hunting here last spring, we fell in love with this neighborhood - giant trees, not on a busy road but close enough, 15 minute commute for me, and this amazing running trail close by.

Point 1: It really IS beautiful, and I've loved running on that trail!


Point 2: Also super weird.

I don't know. Austin is weird.

Last week was my last week of personal training, so I guess now I have to like "be motivated" or something. I'll probably go back to fitness blender, but since I'm very, very strong now (lol), I don't have weights heavy enough at home, so to the gym it is!

This week:
Monday - 80 squats, because I saw a challenge and signed up for it. IDK.
Tuesday - 90 squats; 4 miles
Wednesday - 100 squats; strength
Thursday - no squats, 4 miles
Friday - 40 squats; strength
Saturday - 60 squats
Sunday - 6 miles
