I am not sure how it happened.
The beginning of the week was crazy. The middle wasn’t much better.
A heatwave- all days above 100*- rolled in on Friday.
A migraine followed that for Saturday and Sunday.
I did not run at all last week. Zero. I didn’t do any workouts.
Hell, even my step counts look horrible. I work in a 2 story building with a stand up desk and I was never anywhere close to 7500. Which is the goal set by my calorie tracking app.
To add to that insult- our bathrooms broke on Wednesday at work. So that meant each time I needed the restroom, I had to go outside, cross 2 parking lots and an alley to get to the bathrooms in one of our other offices. Which I did twice. I still didn’t hit 7500.🤦♀️
The weekend brought more than heat and the migraine. Severe dry lightning sparked several fires around the state- 3 in my county- which brings the smoke into the county. I usually sleep with my window open a bit and my fan going full steam but after waking up choking, I won’t be opening that window anytime soon.
So here’s to hoping for an improved week to come….although the heat warning is still in effect. For at least another 7 days.
