I physically hurt today. I think this is a sign I have been pushing myself too hard, or that I am too stressed out. I have not been running as often as I should. Working out really helps me feel better, and I believe it even helps me think better. I have been trying to run in the afternoons after work. The only problem is that I have been staying late too often to get my workout in. The only other option is to wake up at 4:30 in the morning to run before work. I am seriously thinking about doing this. I have a treadmill, and I have a nice neighborhood to run in. Either would work, and I would not have to try to fit it in later in the day. I think it may be worth a try for a couple of weeks. Just to see.
Work had been crazy, and I think I have been pushing myself mentally and physically, and then I have not been able to have a break. I know that it is not like that all the time. At least I think it is not like that all the time. I still feel like things are very new, and it still feels strange to be doing things by myself. i think it will take about a year until I feel more comfortable in my role, and even then I may end up in situations which make me uncomfortable.
And now for something completely different.
I think I may get a tattoo. I have had the idea in the back of my mind for a couple of years. Then one of the ladies I work with said she has found the perfect place to get a tattoo. It is owned by one of the OR secretaries. I like the idea of having a dragon watching my back. I am debating getting a small Chinese dragon at the small of my back. Dragons in Eastern cultures are good and usually protectors, despite their mean looks. What do you all think? Anyone with experience with tattoos?
