I might eat my own arm today

Welp. The chiropractor has put me on a minimum 4-week running hiatus. Apparently I've been re-injuring the angry disc in my back by doing things like arm weight exercises and running. I don't know what that's all about, but it looks like body weight exercises and elliptical-ling will be the name of the game for the next month. I actually had  running date planned on Friday and I had to bow out. So annoying! I'm going to have to start back at the beginning with training.

As luck would have it, my brother and sister-in-law, who just put their house on the market, brought over their elliptical for me to "babysit" until they get settled into a new house. I'm so psyched! We bonded for a very sweaty hour yesterday.
They think, someday, I'm giving it back. So cute.

I'm also going to be babysitting Rocco more often for a while, as people will be walking through my brother's house until it's sold.
It's really too bad these two don't get along.

And I'm ending this post here because I just realized none of the food places are open on campus this week and I didn't bring lunch. And I can't park at work, so I don't have my car. I'm freaking out a little bit. Ok, a lot.

P.S. I have had to set my comments to word verification again because I've been receiving no less than 20 spam comments every day for the past couple of weeks. Sorry for the annoyance!


  1. Hope your able to get your back pain solved quickly! That's the worst. But, what a nice option to have an elliptical at your house. :-)

  2. No running sucks, but good job with the elliptical etc. Hope you are able to find something good to eat:) Off to figure out the Word verification so this will actually post;)

  3. You do have an emergency situation!

    I don't know what I would do without my elliptical, it was a great investment. I am hoping someday to also have a treadmill, but my husband thinks it would be a waste of money when I can just run outside.

    Hope your month of no running goes by fast!

  4. Maybe if you steal your boss' lunch again, she'll think she's not paying you enough and give you a raise!

  5. Forgetting my lunch is my biggest fear in life. That's why I always have a backup at work.

  6. Sorry about your back :(

    I've been getting lots of love from the spammers lately too. It sucks!

  7. Seriously, what is up with all the spam lately? Sorry to hear you can't run. The elliptical set up is nice though! Tell your bro to take his sweet time finding a new house.
