Just a few updates for those who are following along at home:
Running: The foot injury seems to have gotten a lot better. I'm still going easy on the running. Today was Week 5, Day 1 of Couch to 5K for me, which meant a 5-minute warmup walk, then three 5-minute runs interspersed with 3-minute walks, and a 5-minute cooldown walk. The C25K app makes following the plan a breeze. I love it. If you've never done a 5K or you're, like me, trying to get back into running after an injury, this is a great program to try.
Health: My thyroid tests last week showed that the antibodies are even more elevated than they are before. My doctor wants me to have a thyroid ultrasound to see what things look like. I'm hoping it's nothing serious. My allergist mentioned in passing that this could be related to my allergies, so that is something that might be worth investigating. The allergies have responded well to the meds and to switching to a fragrance-free body oil instead of a lotion.
Weight: This last week I weighed in at 172, not bad but not a lot of progress. I manage to log my food pretty consistently every week until about Friday afternoon, and then things tend to go south. My goal is to log consistently every single day of next week.
Mood: The sunshine and the running have helped, but I've still been feeling a bit flat. I think that's why I haven't had much to blog about.
