What a week! It's been exciting, stressful, and sad all at the same time. When I was younger, there were years and years when health issues and family stuff was so minor it was rediculous. Now, it seems like everyone gets sick (chronic and acute, but mostly chronic) around every turn. My mother in law is having more health issues...which if she adds one more I swear the guiness book of world records will be contacting her. Or ripley's believe it or not. And, that's just one person! We've had more people sick and pass away lately (and people we're both realy close too), along with other events that I can't talk about here. I'm started to be more suprised when things don't happen. Is this the joy of being an adult? It was literally 3 years ago when it started. I hit 27 and BOOM. I wouldn't trade my life for anything (I have had some amazingly wonderful things happen too), but sometimes I wish we could have a few years of silence. But, it'd probably come at too big of a cost, wouldn't it? I'm too lucky to complain though, I just needed a moment. On to funner things.
I am 30 and got my first tattoo! It's not little either. Ok, I'll just show you!
It's huge (remember...this is a size 16 woman here), but isn't it gorgeous? Just what I wanted. I've been wanting a tat for about 11 years now, with this specific one in mind for 7 months. I think I was ready :) Next is a froggie tattoo for my mom...they were her favorites. Let me tell you though, the next one won't be on a spot that's quite that sensative, and it won't be that big! Let me just say, it didn't feel like puppy kisses!! (no that's not what I was expecting, but can you imagine how great that'd be? That's assuming you love tats too, huh?)
I am starting my work out routine back up tomorrow! I won't have the morning time like I thought I would be able to (why yes, dr. advisor, I will work whenever you want because I'm your slave ;) ). However, I will have more time on MWFSat so that's still on. I'm starting the 100 push ups again, only instead of plank or even girly I am doing it against a lower counter and I'll work my way up to girly then plank. And, instead of unstructured working out I think I'll try the C25K program. That one is variable though, just because i have hip and shin splint problems (seperate, not together!). I will definately keep you posted on this one!
