Health/Fitnessy Stuff
Well, yesterday's weigh-in was slightly discouraging albeit expected. Leading up to the race last week, my arm was definitely on the mend and feeling better. After the race, it felt like a one-month setback. It's totally stupid, right? I hurt myself taking my coat off while driving. It's definitely not a major strain and I don't need to bug my doctor because she's probably going to recommend some stupid and useless test like the last time I went to see her about an injury but it's just aggravating. Because, well, I need to use my damn arm on a daily basis. It was annoying enough last week that I was on a steady dosing of Advil until Thursday. It felt alright for Reformer on Sunday but it's weak. Where I was using one full spring for arms before it happened, I'm down to a quarter spring now. So, Elena, being the most awesome PT/Pilates Instructor/Zumba Instructor ever helped me out with a little KT tape.
Stylish, I know. At least my sports bra and hat match.
I think the tape is helping but whether that's the placebo effect, I couldn't say. I wanted to get this post up last night but by the time I got home, ate dinner, did the dishes and got my treadmill walk in it was almost 9pm. Sleep > blogging.

House Things
On Black Friday, I saw a super awesome deal for some blackout thermal curtains online (orig: $70, sale: $20!) so I bought some for the master bedroom and some for the family room, which are by far the draftiest rooms in the entire house. I installed one in the bedroom before Eric got so interested in what I was doing that he wanted to do it too. He then proceeded to install all the remaining curtain rods. Teehee. It's like I tricked him into doing all my work. :) I attempted to get the wrinkles out of the curtains while he was putting up the rods. Google research told me that if I didn't have a handheld steamer (which I don't, because I wear jeans and a tshirt to work most days) that if I tossed the curtains into the dryer on tumble dry low with a damp wash cloth, the wrinkles would come out. Eh, it sort of worked...I guess. There are still some wrinkly spots but they'll do because I'm tired of cold-nose syndrome in bed.

I finally picked a game...
I've been playing SW:TOR. I get to run around and stab things with a lightsaber!
