A Little More Each Day

One working mama learning to run & to maintain my 100+ pound weight loss!

Happy Halloween!!

on October 31, 2017

Happy Halloween everyone! Today I’m working at the Children’s Hospital and this is my look:

Happy Halloween

Oliver said “Mama, that’s a bit much.” Ha! Who cares what he thinks. 🙂 How often does a girl get to wear a Wonder Woman crown at work? Thank goodness I’m at the Children’s Hospital today where it doesn’t raise many eyebrows.

Good news:

  • I’ve run THREE times in the last week and no return of my neck / arm issues! It is so exciting. I’m sticking to my goal of no more than every other day and brief run intervals, but I am having so much fun. 🙂
  • Because I’ve had some success with weight loss lately, I feel motivated to go into the holiday season without being completely derailed. That’s a much better feeling than I’ve had for the last few months!
  • I’ve been doing push-ups (most) days as part of a challenge with friends and it’s a nice feeling to get back to doing some body weight exercises.

Goals for this week:

  • Lots of work stress lately and not letting up soon – especially with schedule chaos for the holidays, so I need to refocus on stress relief. My goals for this week in that regard are to do either 10 minutes of yoga or 5 minutes of meditation each morning. My hands are feeling stiff, which is partly weather but partly stress and I need to be cognizant of that.
  • Follow up with my rheumatologist to recheck my kidney function. They mentioned doing it after they let me restart naproxen, but didn’t schedule it and I haven’t followed up. Ignoring my health is not a good idea!

TA DA for the week! I’m on a phone call right now with the NIH and the director at the top of my food chain for this program just said that my being dressed as Wonder Woman is very fitting for my station in life.

I hope everyone has a safe holiday this evening if you’re celebrating! Enjoy any treats you choose. 🙂 This is actually a holiday where I’m not tempted to indulge at all thanks to nasty food poisoning episode a few years ago on Halloween. Since then, I have ZERO appetite on Halloween.


What’s your favorite Halloween treat to give or get?
