Happy Friday! As usual, since it’s the last Friday of the month, I’m linking up with Marcia from Marcia’s Healthy Slice for Runfessions. Let’s get this party started!
I runfess that allergy season this year has been rough
If you suffer from seasonal allergies, I’m sure you can relate! This season has been AWFUL! I’ve been suffering for the past few weeks but this past week has been the worst. I’m using my allergy anti-itch eye drops, Flonase and Zyrtec everyday. It gives me relief temporarily but then I’m back to suffering. I’ve also tried nettle tea and peppermint tea as those have helped in the past but it’s not working this year. Even though my doctor and an allergist have recommended that I get allergy shots, I would rather not do that just because it involves so much time (weekly shots for months). But I may not have a choice if this continues.
I runfess I’m secretly obsessed with the Nextdoor App
Okay, so I’m probably late to the party, but I downloaded the Nextdoor App last month and some of the posts on there are WILD! If I need a good laugh, I usually go on there to see what crazy post is up. Usually I can always find a crazy political post and that always makes me laugh because I will never understand people arguing back and forth on an app. Recently someone posted about her massive goldfish and if there was anyone with a pond that needed fish. I’ve also been able to sell a few things locally on the app so it’s useful for something other than laughs, lol.
I runfess that I’ve lost some of my strength
While I’m still working out at home, I think that not going to OTF (I froze my account when everything happened with my dad) is negatively affecting my strength training. I don’t have super heavy weights at home, so that could be one reason, but I think I just need to be more mindful about the Peloton strength classes that I select. Obviously it’s not a huge deal, but I definitely noticed that my push-ups aren’t feeling as easy as they used to (I used the term easy loosely, lol).
I runfess that I’m nervous for my second vaccine shot
I get my second vaccine shot (Pfizer) tomorrow afternoon. Even though I didn’t have any crazy side effects from the first shot (just a sore arm) I’m a little nervous for the second shot. I’ve heard from a few people of things to do to help feel better after the second shot like staying hydrated, drinking Gatorade, taking tylenol as needed, etc. The only good thing is that if I feel crappy the next day after the shot, at least it will be Sunday and I won’t have to take a sick day from work.
That’s it for this month – thanks for reading my runfessions! I hope that you have a great weekend!
Do you have anything you want to runfess for April?
