Random Thursday Thoughts..

Yesterday was kind of a hectic day at work and since I didn't really have any extraordinary ideas to blog about, I took the day off. I took the day off from writing AND reading so I'm still working on getting through everyone's posts from the last couple days :)

I still don't really have any super fabulous topics to write about, but I do have some random thoughts floating about in my mind.

Yesterday morning, I woke up and noticed that I had a couple bumps on my forearm that were a little sore, but didn't really think anything of it. Once I got to work, they looked a little more red and swollen. Turns out I even had a couple on my forehead!

My guess is some kind of spider bite??! What the hell, on my face, too, though? I do not like the sound of that. I've been feeling fine, other than a little soreness and from what I've read online, there isn't really a whole lot you can do.

Edit: I just ran over to the walk-in clinic over my lunch break. The doc said it could be a reaction to a bug bite and it doesn't really look infected, but he gave me antibiotics anyway. Here's hoping that it goes away SOON!

Yesterday, at work, we had a picnic and I had to run to Costco to pick up some desserts for our department. I have a membership and really need to get over there more often. I forget how much awesome stuff they have! I have been desperately needing some new sports bras and they had some really nice Champion ones that were 2/$25! I was thrilled, to say the least.

Even though I should've been headed back to work, I decided to puruse through the outdoor furniture section. They have some really nice stuff there, way nicer than what I've seen other places carry. Someone buy this for me?

I'm not a huge fan of the cushion color, but how comfy do those over-sized armchairs and ottoman look??! They were, and I know it, because I tested them out myself.

Lately my favorite mid-morning snack has been some Cinnamon Pecan Special K. That stuff is soo good! Have y'all tried it??


As for today, I'm linking up with Nikki over at The Pink Growl for 30 miles in 30 days. I've completed 3.25 miles so far this week and I'll hopefully log a few more today! I haven't done any actual "runs" this week, I've just added in doing 15-20 minutes of intervals on the treadmill right before my Body Pump class. Talk about turning it up a couple notches...

Mon - 1.71
Tues - 1.54
Total - 3.25
Total for the Month - 9.41

Link up with Lindsay and I tomorrow for Fitness Friday and 50 in 30!

I'm glad you got that bite looked at!

I haven't ever been to Costco. We have a Sam's, but my FIL LOVES Costco.

I'll have to try that Special K. I Just bought the breakfast bars... and randomly broke out in hives today? I'm hoping its not the cereal bars because they were delicious! Hope your bites heal soon.

I haven't tried that special K yet but I love the granola bars!

Jen said...

Ouch! :( I hope the bites go away soon.

Lindsey said...

Yucky and ouchy!!! Hope it clears up fast!

And patio furniture is ridiculously expensive! We got ours at Big Lots!

Glad you got that checked out! It doesn't look fun but hopefully it'll clear up faster now than on it's own!

Also, love that special K! It's so tasty :)
