My Morning In Photos

https://vid.me/zTFlp

(I wish Vidme was like YouTube in the way that when you add the link to a video in a post it would automatically embed the video into the post, but oh well)

But it you’re at all interested in my summer morning routine go check out my latest vlog! I shared my morning in photos today. πŸ™‚

Sunday Stuff

Alrighty guys, I don’t have a weekly recap for you today. Since I was sick pretty much all of this week I didn’t do much running or working out or anything, so it would have just been super boring haha. But I do have a new video up on Vidme today. I showed off my garden a little bit, so if you’re at all interested in that you should go check it out! πŸ™‚

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today, so happy Sunday and happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there. You guys rock!

Never in my life has a cold fucked me up the way this one has. It’s seriously beenΒ terrible. My voice is still really hoarse (I’ll add the link to my vlog from today below, if you want to hear how bad it is), my chest is still really congested, I’m coughing and hacking, my nose is still stuffy, and I still don’t feel all that great…

On the bright side, I do feel quite a lot better today! Much better than I felt over the weekend! I’m still doing my best to rest, eat lots off fruits and veggies, and hydrate. Which is actually going a lot better than it was over the weekend, because now I actually want to eat and drink. πŸ™‚

I also got in another short, slow “run” (there was quite a bit of walking done, for only doing a mile) this morning. These short easy runs have really helped clear out my nose and chest, but I’m still not up for doing much more than a mile yet and the warm weather sure isn’t helping. It was a little over 70 degrees when I finally hit the pavement today. I do need to start waking up before the sun gets up. That will make running feel a little better, but right now I’m just focusing on getting enough rest so that I can get over this damn cold. Then I’ll start worrying about waking up at 5 am, and getting back to a more normal running scheduled.

Anyway now that I’ve run and showered I guess I’m going to continue resting. All this sitting around is kinda driving me stir crazy, but I know it’s what my body needs right now, so I’m going to do it. I’ve started re-reading The Stand for the 8 billionth time, so that should help keep me busy. Yesterday I spent some time outside on my back porch reading, trying to get rid of my terrible running shoe tan lines, and soaking up some vitamin D. So I think I’m off to do do that again. I feel like helped a bit. And the ridiculous amount of blueberries that I ate yesterday probably helped a little bit too haha. Yay vitamin C and antioxidants!! πŸ˜‰

Wishing you a terrific Tuesday!!!

Thursday Things

Happy Star Wars Day! I feel pretty darn good today! Probably because I didn’t skip out on my morning cup of coffee haha. I very much have a caffeine problem

Anyway, I made another vlog thing this morning before I went for my run! It’s just another “10 things about me” deal, but go check it out if you haven’t read any of the “10 facts/things/randomness about me” posts that I have floating around here on this blog. Or if you just want to listen to me talk and watch me be super awkward, that’s cool too. πŸ˜‰

Now that I’ve got that out of the way, I can get to the other stuff I want to talk about!

I definitely should have woken up earlier, waited to record that vlog, and gotten out on the road earlier. It was warm and sunny today and, as you may know, that tends to cause problems for me. Especially when the suns been shining for a while and the pavement heats ups and you start getting heat thrown at you from above and below. Luckily that hasn’t beenΒ tooΒ bad yet, but as it gets warmer it will. Not looking forward to that…

I had kinda wanted to get in 4-5 miles today, but I stopped at 3 because I was feeling hot and miserable. Still though, it was a pretty decent run. Aside from getting hot, I don’t have anything to complain about. πŸ™‚ Not gonna lie though, it was kinda nice to see the sun for a change.

The Midwest got hit with a CRAZY amount of rain over the past several days. In the St. Louis area a bunch of roads are completely flooded, bridges have been washed away, like, all of my friends from there have flooded basements, a lot of people have lost power, and some people haven’t even been able to get to work because the Mississippi river is so high and the roads are so bad. Luckily it hasn’t been that bad here in Kansas. For the most part everything around here is just wet, muddy, and gross. And we’re not suppose to get anymore rain until next Thursday, so everything around here should start drying out. πŸ™‚

Eww not looking forward to those day’s in the 80’s though…

The one bright side to all of the rain is that it’s been great for my peach tree! My little peaches are getting bigger and bigger every day! πŸ™‚ I was a little worried about the rest of my garden though. My little plots of lettuce, broccoli, and brussle sprouts got a little bit flooded. Luckily all of the plants seem like the’re recovering from that now that a good majority of the water in their plots have dried up. Now I really need to pull some weeds and they should be golden! I’ll probably work on that tomorrow though, I plan on getting up earlier and getting more done then. And maybe once my garden plots are all weeded and look nice, I’ll post a little garden update.

Anyway, I guess that’s all I’ve got for today. I need to go do some blogilates and then attempt to clean up the house a little bit. I’m not even going to bother with my muddy floors yet though, because the dogs are all filthy. I guess I’ll try to take care of all that stuff tomorrow as well.

So I Guess I’m Making Vlogs Now?

https://vid.me/e/74CC

At the insistence of my sister, I am giving vlogging a try. I know nothing about making videos or editing them or anything like that, and I feel extremely awkward just talking into my iPhone camera, so I’m not sure how long lived this little adventure is going to be. But hey, I figured I might as well try it out. At the very least my sister has stopped bothering me about it. πŸ˜‰

(I tried to add the actual video to this post, but nothing I did worked. Sad face… Apparently just adding the URL from Vidme to the post doesn’t work like it does with YouTube. So I guess if you’re at all intersted in this not-so-great vlog or just hearing what my voice sounds like, you’ll have to click the link at the top of the post.)
